At Wellness As Rx we offer many different modalities of massage therapy. We specialize in relaxation treatments, Swedish, deep tissue, Thai massage, European modalities, Lomi Lomi, and athlete specific treatments.
Swedish massage is a very relaxing modality that helps to reduce stress and muscle tension . It is performed using oils, creams, and lotions with the client undressed and respectfully draped with sheets and towels.
This includes a combination of various compressions and strokes done with and without oils and creams. Some people believe that deep tissue massage is supposed to be very painful. This is not true. Working deep muscle tissue can be very effective without pain when approached the right way. Due to the use of oils, clients undress before treatment. Sheets and towels are used to cover all areas not being worked on.
Thai massage (Thai Bodywork or Thai Yoga) is a unique and efficacious form of massage that was first introduced over 2500 years ago. Thai massage is also referred to as “Nuad Boran” in Thailand, which translates to “ancient massage”. It is considered energizing , yet meditative and relaxing. It is also a great modality for anyone looking to reduce pain, expedite recovery, reduce stress, increase range of motion, or aid in injury prevention. It’s like doing yoga without having to do the work. The therapist takes clients through various poses and stretches while applying compression to muscle tissue, tendons, and acupressure points. Thai massage is traditionally done on a cushioned floor mat. With Thai Fusion, the client lies on a massage table and is draped with sheets. This unique modality combines the stretching in traditional Thai massage with the techniques of an oil massage such as Swedish or deep tissue.
Lomi Lomi Massage:
Lomi Lomi or “Hawaiian massage” is best known for long, flowing strokes, using the forearms and generous amounts of oil. Traditional lomi lomi always includes abdominal massage because Hawaiian tradition considers the colon part of a person’s soul or heart. Often, more of your body is uncovered during this massage than during a typical Swedish or deep tissue massage. The more traditional draping practice for Lomi Lomi only covers private areas by the use of small towels and/or breast towels. That’s because therapists rarely massage one body part at a time. Instead, they move in long flowing motions that, for example, may start at the top of your shoulder and go all the way to your foot. Another example may be using one hand or forearm on your shoulder while simultaneously massaging a hip with the other hand or forearm.
European Fusion Massage:
European Fusion massage is a combination of massage therapy techniques developed in various parts Europe and the former Soviet Union. Russian massage techniques are similar to sports massage, but they involve much slower, softer motions similar to some Thai massage stretches. These stretching techniques can to help increase range of motion. Draping for European Fusion Massage is minimal in comparison to Swedish or deep tissue massage.
