Massage Overview & Pricing
The Antistress massage is a combination of the sport- and shiatsu massage.
This is a nice relaxing massage, ideally suited for persons suffering from high workload or stress.
Extra attention will be given to the back, legs, feet, arms, neck and head.
The body will be covered with warm towels, with the exception of the bodyparts being treated.
After finishing the massage treatment, the massage oil residu will be removed with the help of a warm and dense towel.
The massage treatments are provided on a luxuriously massage table which is situated in a dedicated special room with dimmed lights and relaxing music in the background to maximise your comfort feeling.
The sport massage is identical to the Antistress massage, however this massage focusses more on the muscle areas which need specific attention. The massage itself is more intense and focussed on dehydration, improving the bloodstream circulation and accelerating the lymphatic system.
Shiatsu Massage Therapy is a finger-pressure technique that is developed in Japan.
Shiatsu Massage Therapy makes use of the traditional acupuncture points (Meridian points) of Oriental healing. The meridian network provides life giving and life-sustaining energy to every part of the human. It is this network that connects all the organs, tissues and cells in the body. This is in fact the basis of understanding on how this form of massage therapy work.
stimulating the meridian points on the exterior of the body, changes can be
made internally. Similar to acupressure, shiatsu concentrates on unblocking
the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs.
Trigger point massage therapy, also known as myofascial or neuromuscular therapy, is a specialised form of massage specifically directed at loosening taut bands and tight muscles. These contracted muscles can cause intense pain and trigger point massage therapy can provide effective pain relief for such pain.
What are trigger points?
A trigger point is simply a hardened band within the muscle on which there is a zone of intense pain. The hardened band or taut band may feel like a pea buried deep in the muscle. It maintains a hard contraction on the muscle fibres connected to it, thus causing a tight band that can also be felt in the muscle.
These trigger points in muscles can result in restrictions on movements for example the neck may not be able to turn freely and fully.
Are trigger points common?
Myofascial trigger points are among the most common yet often neglected and inadequately managed causes of musculoskeletal pain seen in medical practice.
Unfortunately, many general practitioners do not know about trigger points, as trigger points do not show on X-rays or scans.
A healthcare professional trained in myofascial trigger point massage therapy, however, can perform trigger point examination to spot tenderness and the taut band by palpation, to reproduce the patients pain. Other symptoms of myofascial trigger point may include limited range of motion, weakness of certain muscles, depression and sleep disturbance.
Most patients who have had a stable pattern of myofascial pain pattern for months or longer are likely to respond positively to treatment. Plus, the person who receives trigger point massage therapy should feel much better, both in terms of pain relief as well as freer, greater range of motion.
What common conditions are thought to be due to referred pain from trigger points?
Trigger points are known to cause or contribute to:
These conditions can all be effectively treated by trigger point massage therapy / myofascial therapy.
AQAMA massage is a form of massage whereby the client is resting on a specially developped mattress. This mattress if filled with warm water. Special massage techniques are used to perform the massage, the hands are placed between the body and the AQAMA mattress.
As the warm water-filled mattress will warm up the body, automaticly muscles and joints will relax.
This form of massage is great for everybody, also for people suffering from muscle and joint illness. This massage is most ideal for pregnant women.
Deep Connective Tissue Massage:
Deep connective tissue massage is a form of intense massage that aims to release myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions in the body, and to break up any restrictive scar tissue. It has also been known to help relieve chronic tension, to increase the bodys range of motion, to improve posture and to enhance the natural harmony of the entire body and mind.
Deep connective tissue massage is also said to restore the length and flexibility to the fascia (the fibrous tissue that surrounds the muscles and organs), by normalizing the tissue and by improving the strength and overall health of the entire fascial system (connective tissues throughout the entire body).
Deep connective tissue massage borrows many of its techniques from traditional Swedish massage. However the pressure that a massage therapist applies during a deep connective tissue massage is more intense.
The strokes of this type of massage are slower and more pressure is applied in order warm the muscle tissue and reaches the deeper layers of muscle. Although having a deep connective tissue massage shouldn't cause you any pain, its often less relaxing and less comfortable then a traditional Swedish massage. Most practitioners ask that their clients tell them immediately if the stroke pressure is too intense.
During a session, the massage therapist will focus on releasing tension from the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (or connective tissues) with deep, intense strokes. When a therapist locates a chronic knot (also referred to as an adhesion), they will often recommend that a client adapt a total lifestyle change - which may include exercises to help improve posture, balance, movement, and relaxation. These steps are complementary to your weekly deep connective tissue massage sessions.
Another form of Western trigger point therapy is Periostal Trigger Point Therapy, also known as Periostal Massage. It focuses on the connective tissue that surrounds bone tissue - the periosteum.
Periostal Trigger Points may cause local pain at the trigger point sites. Therapeutic effects of Periostal Massage include:
The therapeutic effect has two components:
1. Periostal Massage has a direct therapeutic effect on the musculo-skeletal disorders. Periostal Massage on the affected areas of periosteum evokes local inflammatory response. This response provokes a number of reactions: support regeneration of the periosteum; improve the micro-circulation; balance of metabolic processes in the bones and joints; and reinforce of capsule and ligaments of the joints. The results are elimination of pain and delayed development of the degenerative process in the joints.
2. Periostal Massage through common spinal nerves has an indirect therapeutic effect on some inner organ disorders. Periostal Massage interrupts a vicious circle which takes place between the affected inner organs and the reflex zones in the periosteum by the restoring local metabolism and eliminating reflex zones. Periostal Massage has greatest therapeutic effects on the cardiac, pulmonary, and gastric pathologies.
Indications for Periostal
Indications for Periostal Massage treatment of inner organ disorders are limited. To estimate the clinical results, it is recommended that Periostal Massage be used for treatment of people with the following pathologies:
1. Diseases and traumas of the musculo-skeletal systems. Delays of fractures consolidation and rehabilitation during the post-surgical period.
2. Diseases of the cardio-vascular system;
3. Diseases of the pulmonary system.
4. Diseases of the digestive system.
Also known as Reflex Zone Therapy, foot reflexology is a type of foot massage that is meant for more than just feeling good. Where a basic foot massage has particular strokes that are solely meant to relax the feet as well as the person, foot reflexology is meant to increase the health and well being in the whole body.
How does foot reflexology work?
Based on the idea that all nerve zones begin in the feet, foot reflexology is thought to cure many ailments. By massaging certain areas of the foot, and applying certain pressures and strokes to particular areas, a practitioner of reflex zone therapy can provide many benefits.
The foot reflexology therapist will follow a grid based on the body. This grid tells which areas of the foot are connected to what parts of the body. This can include muscles as well as organs. There are many benefits to foot reflexology for the patient, and some of these are instantaneous while others may take several treatments to achieve.
What are the benefits of foot reflexology?
Foot reflexology, or reflex zone therapy, can be beneficial in many ways. Instantly the massage will increase blood supply to the rest of the body, allowing it to heal itself of any ailments. While foot reflexology isn't a cure-all for any type of illness in every individual, there have been many cases of patients who have been treated for a variety of conditions. The following are just a few examples of conditions that foot reflexology has treated in the past:
As you can see, there are a variety of conditions that foot reflexology can help heal. This type of therapy will not work on everyone, but it is a type of therapy worth considering since, even if it does not cure an ailment, it will still relax the patient through foot massage.
