Deep Tissue

Releases tension in the deeper layers of the muscles, it also relieves tenderness and fatigue associated with stress, and promotes healthy muscles. Healthy muscles can prevent injuries. Different techniques will be customized to suit your individual needs.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stones are placed at key points around your body, and used as massage tools with essential oils to help promote deep relaxation and balance. You can choose soft or deep tissue work. Truly a great experience...

Sports Massage

A Sports massage is ideal to treat injuries and as well as a preventative treatment dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture. I further define my role as ‘the manipulation of soft tissue to release tension, reduce pain, restore range of movement and promote good condition'. This is achieved through a range of techniques I possess and carry around in my ‘tool bag', some of which are effective on some people, some of which are not. It is then down to me to work with my clients to find the right tools to unravel their current injury situation or assist them with their training program. Essentially the ‘manipulation of soft tissue' in my books means moving muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue around in a range of ways to achieve the desired effect.

Swedish

Passive, long and rhythmic strokes are used to stimulate circulation, calming the mind and soothing the nerves. Choose light or firm touch.

Pregnancy

A special massage created exclusively to relieve those particular aches and pains associated with weight-bearing tension and fatigue. It also noticeably reduces swelling.

Other

+++Cupping Therapy --- Cupping therapy is used in traditional Chinese medicine to release congestion. Cups are placed on the skin and a suction gun is used to create vacuum inside the cups. Leaving the cups on the skin for a few minutes will turn the skin red. This is an indication that circulation has been brought to the surface. The suction will increase blood flow and will release rigid soft tissues and muscles.

The studio is in a business complex, and it is very private, clean, smell wonderful, and it is so easy to relax. Irena is truly an exceptional massage therapist. She is professional and very skillful and mindful of her work, and has the genuine want to help her clients achieve wellness and relaxation. She knows exactly how to help me relax, and her massages are fantastic. She has magical hands and she is so dedicated to their craft! She is knowledgeable about techniques and offers various types of massages, all of which are aimed at making you feel your best. She listens to what you need and your anxiety and muscle pains melt away after just one session. I loved the Hot Copper stones accompanied with the aromatherapy oils. The pink Himalayan sea salt felt so amazing on my back. Once we got to the cupping I could feel the tension being squeezed out of my muscles. Far the best massages I've ever had! It was the most therapeutic, peaceful and rejuvenating experience I had in my life. I highly recommend Healing with Bamboo and Stones.
