Hot Bamboo Massage is very similar to Hot Stone Massage whereas it deepens relaxation & promotes circulation in your muscles. The main differences between the two are that the bamboo pieces are longer, creating a broader area to be treated at a time and the bamboo also enables deeper work to be performed when needed. Muscles that are heated with the hot bamboo release tension & stress much more deeply and quickly than with traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing & rejuvenating.
*Note* Full body bamboo is not provided

Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy.

Massage During 1st Trimester
There is much controversy about massage during the first trimester. It is a myth that massage can cause a miscarriage during this period. Only extremely deep and vigorous lower abdominal massage could possibly cause a miscarriage. Normal precautions are taken when performing a massage during the 1st trimester, which include light massage over certain trigger points. If a woman experiences a miscarriage after a massage, it is not the massage that is the cause. Most causes are embryonic abnormalities, ectopic pregnancy, poor maternal health, hormonal imbalance, infection, toxic exposure and maternal age.
** I will perform massage during the 1st trimester, however, due to the controversy and misconceptions, I MUST insist on a written note from your doctor stating that he approves of a massage. Included in this note I would like the number of weeks pregnant that you currently are. Your doctor knows of any complications or health issues that you May have and may not want you receiving massage at this time.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
