I am a pain removing, health improving, back muscle repairing, always caring, muscle kneading, stress relieving, miracle working, I am Massage Therapist"

Is a combination of different massage techniques that not only relaxes your whole body, but at the same time it will work through some of the muscle issues or “tight spots” you may be experiencing. It will help you to relive pain, it will help to get a better posture and to get more mobility! We called it "Emergency Massage" because we have seen so many cases of people who after visit to the doctor they find out the immobility or pain was related to muscle tension caused to tons of stress and anxiety. In majority of these cases some of their body parts get immobile or temporarily paralyzed.
If you are suffering from this symptoms and have gone to the doctor and they do not find anything wrong then it could means you need a Emergency Massage

Therapeutic Massage is designed for people who at some point suffered from "Chronic pain" and who now get a massage either every other week or once a month. By you getting a Therapeutic Massage regularly we would able to keep all those muscles released, so you don't have to go trough that suffering again. It could also help you with the following conditions, so you can feel better:
- General Well being
- High Blood Pressure
- Low Immunity
- Minor injuries
Now many people find a regular therapeutic massage every other week or once a month and find to be a great dose of prevention therapy. A regular therapeutic massages work best when on a 2 to 4 week basis because your muscles need to keep relaxed and moving through their full available range.
Massage therapy may also improve your circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
Massage therapy induces a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure; plus boosts your immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.
Carrying a baby inside you changes your center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on your back, neck, abdominal muscles, and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes your ligaments, so that your pelvic joints are less stable, and changes your posture, pulling your pelvis forward. Add to that the extra weight you're carrying and you may find you've got an aching lower back.
Only a prenatal massage therapist knows where a pregnant woman's sore spots are likely to be and may be able to provide some relief. It's important to communicate with her and tell her where you need attention. Let her know right away if anything during the massage including your positioning is causing you any discomfort.
Massage can help all the mothers to be with many of these, including:
- Sore back & hips
- Sciatic nerve pain & leg cramping
- Pain in muscles and joints
- Constipation, gas, heartburn & congestion
- Stress and anxiety
- Sleep deprivation and tiredness
Pregnancy Massage is just as important for mother as it is for the child. Studies have shown that, when you receive a relaxing prenatal massage, the body naturally secretes endorphins. These "feel good" hormones traverse the placenta and ultimately soothe and relax your baby.
Prenatal massage does more than benefit the mother. Everything a pregnant woman does from her diet and fitness to her relaxation and relative state of contentment , also directly affects the child she is carrying. Study after study has proven that calmness in the mother leads to healthier in-utero development.
Regular prenatal massage can help prepare you for labor by making the pelvis more supple.
The best time to start is after the first trimester, when the greatest hormonal and physical changes have taken place and morning sickness is abating. The frequency is up to the individual , typically anywhere between once a week and once a month.
Natural Labour Induction Massage
Certain therapeutic points and moves can be used to ‘tweak’ a natural labour induction within a massage treatment. Not only does that give your body a gentle nudge in hopefully the right direction, it helps your mind to relax so both you and baby will be in excellent condition on the big day. Practitioners will generally utilize the contra-indicated points for pregnancy to naturally induce a labour.
Natural Labour Induction Massage
Natural Labour Induction massage was designed for expecting moms that are 39 weeks and beyond, for whom no medical condition exists. The Labour Induction Massage can be given on or after your due date. Our experienced and well trained massage therapists work on acupressure points which are normally avoided during pregnancy, in the hope it can help to trigger labour. As with normal massage, induction massage helps to relax and calm your body, easing tension and helping to create a clear and grounded space. The therapists also may use essential oils which can assist with labour induction. It’s generally a very successful form of labour induction if the mind, body and baby is ready and willing. Perhaps this is because it forces pregnant women to stop, relax and slow down.

The postnatal massage is a full body massage that is given to a mum once a week for 5 weeks after the birth. The postnatal massage is a wonderful traditional practice to help soothe new moms. It can be very relaxing in the midst of the chaos of bringing a newborn home.
But you will need to arrange for some help because taking a whole hour for yourself with a newborn might be difficult. If your baby's grandmother or other trusted care giver can watch your baby while you get a massage, you might find it one of the nicest practices of the postnatal confinement period.
A postnatal massage will help:
- To ease sore spots and relax muscle tension. The whole process of childbirth has been a strain on your body, particularly your abdomen, lower back and hips. Your upper back might also be sore if you are breastfeeding and not using a suitable position.
- Increase the flow of blood and oxygen to your muscles, getting rid of the toxins.
- You feel relaxed. Massage encourages the body to release endorphins - the natural pain killers and feel good hormones secreted by the brain.
- Also, it will help your body to release Oxytocin. Oxytocin triggers the letdown reflex which releases milk from your breast. This means that you might leak breastmilk during your massage so keep your breastfeeding bra on with some breastpads in.
- Speed up recovery from a caesarean section if you've had one. Although you need to stay clear of your wound as long as it hasn't healed, gentle massage to the area thereafter will increase blood supply and help with internal healing.
- Improve well-being and immunity by stimulating lymph flow.
- You cope with the baby blues and postnatal depression. Some experts say that a massage is an excellent stress buster and mood elevator.
If nothing else, a postnatal massage will give you some time alone. The break will give you the strength to meet the many needs of your baby and home. Or it might help you unwind for a nap if your baby is sleeping too.
Deep Tissue Massage
Is a similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints)
Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as lighter styles like Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.
A quality deep-tissue massage helps to:
- loosen muscle tissues,
- release toxins from muscles, and
- get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
Most people report unbelievable relief immediately after their very first deep tissue style massage. It is normal to feel mildly bruised in the 1-3 days following a deep tissue massage, due to the lactic acid being flushed out of the congested tissues.
I suppose it’s a bit like the soreness you can experience when you first start back into exercise and slightly overdo it. After that things will normally only get better... and you’ll feel much looser, rejuvenated and energetic.
It's important to drink a lot of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. If you don't, you’re more likely to be sore the next day.

A system of alternative medicine intended to relieve pain and tension by gentle manipulations of the skull regarded as harmonizing with a natural rhythm in the central nervous system.
Is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
