If it is your first time at the spa, it is ideal to begin with a lighter type of treatment called a Swedish (European) massage. Relaxing and rejuvenating, it can be slow and gentle or vigorous and embracing. Feel free to state your preferences for pressure, which can range from light to firm.
Swedish massage usually includes deeper work on areas where muscles are more tense. It is best for individuals with slender body types and those seeking overall relaxation.
Deep Tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper layers of the muscle; it uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish, but the pressure is generally more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension. It is important to be realistic about what one deep tissue massage can achieve. Many people ask for more pressure, thinking that if the therapist simply pushes hard enough, he or she can get rid of every knot in an hour. This just won't happen. In fact, release of tension built up over a lifetime is best achieved with a combination of light regular exercise, relaxation techniques and regular massages.
Sports MassageSports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after an event or function well during training. This type of massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. However, you don't have to be in the Olympics to benefit from sports massage. Massage therapists generally concentrate on specific problem areas (example: sore neck and shoulders.) This type of massage nourishes muscles and joints, protecting them from being worn down by heavy exercises. It also increases one's range of motion and removes lactic acid from muscular tissue, increasing a person's chances for healthy performance.
For each client's session, we use the finest creams and oils available on the market. An example of products we use is a customized blend of seven Certified Organic oils and botanical extracts specifically formulated for professional massage. This oil contains no nut oils, mineral oils or direct alcohol. Vitamin E is used as a natural preservative and skin nutrient. Oils used at Whole Essential 4 U Massage do not contain manmade parabens or propylene glycol. Packed with vitamins and minerals, including Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids, this oil nourishes skin during the session.
Pure ingredients include organic flax oil, which contains an appropriate amount of essential fatty acids that are vital for healthy skin, and organic jojoba oil, a light oil ideal for all skin types.
Included in the price of a session is reflexology for the head, face, hands and feet.
The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are "reflex" areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific parts of the body. For example: The tips of the toes reflect the head, and the heart and chest are around the ball of the foot. The liver, pancreas and kidneys are in the arch of the foot, while the lower back and intestines are toward the heels. Applying pressure to these reflex areas can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.
