Deep Tissue Massage


Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.




Hot Stones


Hot stones — Comforting and grounding, hot or warm ocean stones are glide down your muscles to melt away tension. The stones deliver a soothing heat combined with a therapeutic massage. Request an appointment or call 860.536.3880.




Myofascial Release


Fascia is the soft connective tissue that surrounds and supports the musculature of the body. When muscles become painful due to injury, overuse, or inactivity, this can cause restriction and tension causing limited range of motion and diminished blood flow. Irritation of fascia or muscle can lead to inflammation and chronic inflammation can result in a restrictive thickening or fibrosis of the connective tissue. The Myofascial Release Technique works on the restricted fascia or deep connective tissue. The practitioner will use pressure points, trigger points, and stretching exercises to aid in the release of tight and contracted muscles. This involves applying gentle and sustained pressure to eliminate pain and restore range of motion. Myofascial stretching in one area of the body can be felt in and will help other body areas as well. Request an appointment or call 860.536.3880.

Reiki & Energy Work


Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy.” So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, emotions and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and has many beneficial effects. Reiki works well in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to help relieve side effects and promote recovery, by enhancing the relaxation of the individual and allows for self-awareness.

Reconnective Healing®


Reconnective Healing® tends to be a life-changing experience. Now, for the first time, you may access a new, more comprehensive spectrum of healing than has been attainable at any point prior to now, one that not only includes yet expands beyond any and all known forms of “energy” healing. The Reconnective Healing spectrum is comprised of the full healing and evolutionary continuum of energy, light and information. It allows for healings that are not just physical, not just mental, not just emotional… yet go beyond that to bring you healing that includes the evolution of your very being and essence! Your interaction with these highly palpable energies is initiated during your session, and they continue to work with you long after you have left your Reconnective Healing Practitioner’s office. Following your sessions, you will be attuned to a more comprehensive and evolutionary healing frequency than ever before. Request an appointment or call 860.536.3880.




Reflexology


Reflexology can be incorporated into your Massage. Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands relative to each and every organ in the body. Feet and hands are a mirror of the body, and pressure placed on specific reflex points can be used to effect the corresponding areas of the body to stimulate natural healing. Granular accumulations of waste matter concentrate around reflex points in the form of uric acid and calcium crystals. Your reflexologist will work on breaking these down to free energy flow, open blocked nerve pathways, and improve blood supply to flush away toxins. There are 7,200 nerve endings in each foot, and pressure on these can help to encourage feelings of deep relaxation that can help us deal with the stress and tension of everyday life. Conditions that Reflexology can help with include:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Asthma
  • Sinusitis
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Back Pain
  • Pain Relief
  • Menstrual Problems
  • Constipation
  • Parkinson’s Disease
Request an appointment or call 860.536.3880.
