Massage reduces tension, relaxes the body, relieves pain, stimulates blood, lymph and energy circulation, improves flexibility, body awareness and even self-esteem and promotes a positive attitude, enhancing the healing process from within. It is also a pleasurable moment to enjoy, making you feel releaxed and nurtured. Touch is applied with focus, knowledge and caring. With all these benefits, massage cannot be regarded as a luxury, but is a precious tool in prevention and healing.
Sports Massage, with Jane Marchant, Monday to Friday upon appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org / 8812 1232) Rate : $ 50 for a 45 minute session and $ 65 for a 1 hour session
Sports massage is a term used for a deeper tissue or a remedial massage, and is not just for sporting bodies. Treatments can be based around problem areas and/or an injury to enhance rehabilitation by helping to improve circulation, assisting removal of waste products and to decrease muscle tension when needed. However it can be used for general relaxation purposes to remove those niggling aches and pains.
The Richelli Pain Reliever (RPR) is a tool which allows a great variety of manual therapy and massage techniques. With the RPR it is easier to treat adhesions, connective tissue, muscles, tendons, ligaments, trigger points and muscular insertions. Many of the techniques can be used with the patient clothed or without having to remove the Kinesio Tape or other kind of tape.

Over a long period of time this strain becomes solidified in our connective tissue, causing chronic pain and reducing the quality of our lives. Structural Integration seeks to correct these problems and return the body to healthy, light, graceful movement through Fascial Release Technique and awareness / movement training. Each session starts with a visual assessment which allows the work to be customized to the uniqueness of the client. Email Eli at email@example.com for your appointment www.EliThompson.com
