Reflexology

The practice of foot and/or hand massage in which pressure is placed on certain points in order to promote healing and realization. Treatment is planned according to areas of the hands and feet that correspond to specific parts or organs of the body. Crystalline deposits in these areas reflect imbalances and the practitioner breaks these deposits down with massage.

Neuromuscular

A specific massage technique that uses advanced concepts in pressure therapy to break the stress-tension-pain cycle. It aims  to relax muscle so that circulation can increase and the body will return to normal neuromuscular integrity and balance. Neuromuscular massage brings balance between the muscles, the skeletal system, and the nervous system. Balance within the body is important for maintaining optimum health.
