Facial and body scrubs incorporate mint essential oils and naturally abrasive ingredients to scrub away dead skin and reveal the softer, younger cells beneath. The gentle, flowing strokes of Swedish massage relieve stress and stimulate circulation, and the firmer, more focused pressure of deep-tissue massage helps release nagging tension. Prenatal massage uses belly-safe positions and specialized techniques to relieve the strains of pregnancy. During hot-stone massage, the therapist places heated pebbles along the back to loosen muscles and thus make them more susceptible to her manipulations.
Island Therapeutic Massage
Island Therapeutic Massage's founder and owner, Victoria, believes that massage can be part of a daily or weekly de-stressing regimen, rather than just a once-in-a-while indulgence. At her massage center's two locations, she and her team work to stimulate circulation, fend off disease, and bring balance to their clients' bodies with an array of soothing modalities.
Among the most popular of these modalities, Swedish and deep-tissue massages uncoil sinews and reduce stress with varying levels of pressure. Therapeutic massage, trigger-point therapy, and sports massage focus more on specific ailments, targeting headaches and chronic pain from injuries on the field or in the workplace. Another specialty modality, pregnancy massage, helps expectant mothers and babies cope with the stress of hormonal changes and rigid nine-month deadlines. To ramp up your relaxation, request body scrubs and aromatherapy with nonscented or Young Living essential oils.
