A good massage is often times a pleasant gift to yourself or others, resulting in a sense of well-being and a reduction of stress. But massage therapy is much more than that for many people. It’s considered preventive medicine and a detoxification process that increases the flow of nutrients and oxygen to your joints and tissues.
No doubt massage is an enjoyable experience as you lay on a comfortable table in a healing atmosphere with soft music and sense-elevating aromas. The well-trained hands of massage therapists know where to start, and how to push, press and rub so that your muscles relax and you are rejuvenated from head to toe.
During a massage session, you will be transported from your busy and stressful life, to a restful and peaceful time where your tensions are released through a series of techniques. Many massage recipients have exclaimed, “I didn’t realize how tied up in knots I really was,” following a session with a massage therapist. It’s only when you’re free of the subtle pain and added weight of stress that you understand just how much your body has taken on.
The human touch in a massage setting has been a healing tool for thousands of years, and continues to be useful for healing sports injuries, strained muscles and even diseases. Throughout time, several different therapies have emerged, each offering special and unique benefits to the body.
At The Blue Giraffe Day Spa and Salon, our massage therapists offer traditional Swedish Massage, along with a long list of therapy modalities and services. As our guest you can enjoy deep tissue, maternity, hot stone, sports, African, Thai, medical therapeutic, cranialsacral, and reflexology foot massage. Our professionals are also trained in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, which is a barefoot massage technique that incorporates long gliding Swedish style strokes, deep compression and myofacial release to ease muscle pain and lengthen muscles shortened by repetitive use and injuries.
