Swedish massage involves the use of six basic strokes over the soft tissue of the body. The aim is to either speed up or slow down the natural physiology of the recipient. This process stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system of the body into a state of relaxation and regeneration, often resulting in deep and blissful sleep. In short, Swedish massage encourages the body to employ its own healing system and thus begin to heal itself. Deeply yet tenderly working on the body to eliminate and eradicate the results of stress and tension, using just enough pressure to soothe and restore its natural function. Hence, the effects are both physical and psychological – Swedish massage benefits the skin, muscles, blood vessels, lymphatic system, nerves and some of the internal organs, while at the same time allowing you to feel loved and cared for due to the increased levels of the hormone oxytocin released during a session.
Thai Foot Massage
Thai foot massage is the application of pressure to particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area. Foot reflexology massage uses the hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, and a rounded wooden stick with lotion or oil. This particular form of foot massage as practiced in Thailand is an ancient therapeutic procedure that has become popular today. Originally the knowledge and techniques were closely held secrets kept alive and passed down through generations by the Buddhist monks of the Thai Royal Palace. Thai foot reflexology is a marriage between the ancient healing arts of Reflexology, Chinese Tuina, Japanese Shiatsu and Indian Ayurvedic Yoga. Working with the feet, lower leg and knees, this 2000-year-old technique frees up blocked energy within the body’s many Sen lines (Thai-based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
