During reflexology massages—in which oils, creams, and lotions are not used—therapists apply thumbs, fingers, and hands to pressure points on clients’ feet and hands. Reiki massages reduce stress and promote relaxation. Keeping clients’ goals in mind, therapists draw on a variety of techniques to ease aches and pains during therapeutic massages.<p>
Dynamist Massage Therapy
A person who ascribes to a dynamist worldview sees the universe in terms of force or energy. At Dynamist Massage Therapy, dynamist healers increase the presence of positive, curative energy by practicing a range of ancient and modern massage techniques. Relaxation and Swedish-style massages diminish stress, and therapeutic massages address specific complaints with a custom blend of techniques. During hot-stone massages, warmth from heated rocks penetrates aching muscles. In contrast, cold-therapy massages activate sluggish nervous systems with chilled stones, ice packs, and readings from Ernest Shackleton's memoir. Therapists also specialize in reflexology, which activates pressure points in the hands and feet. Stress-reducing, traditional Japanese reiki healing techniques stimulate circulation and energy flow.
