Western Massage Techniques
Western massage techniques focus primarily on the body to promote relaxation, improve blood circulation and relieve muscle tension. 5 Elements Massage techniques include a variety of applications provided by trained and certified massage therapists who carefully assess your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage
A technique that provides relief for chronic aches and muscle tension that may include the neck and shoulders, upper and lower back and leg muscles. Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension using deep pressure and slow strokes that go into the fascial layers of muscle tissue at the source of an injury.
The practitioner applies moderate pressure to release tension and improve mobility due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissue. Kneading style strokes stretch and loosen the fibrous bands within the nerves and joints that extends to provide relief to muscles and connective tissues.
Pre-natal massage promotes relaxation and can help to relieve strained neck and back muscles particularly during the second and third trimester when the extra strain on your back is most pronounced. 5 Elements Massage pre-natal massages are given by specially trained therapists who ensure your comfort and safety.
Post-natal massage relieves the overstretched ligaments of the lumbar and lower back areas and can also help normalize hormone levels following childbirth.
With its roots in acupuncture, reflexology is the application of pressure on precise points of the hands and feet to stimulate healing energy in corresponding parts in the body.
