MASSAGE IN MACKAY

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is, basically, a foot massage. It works on the concept that the whole body can be reflexed in the feet, often working with a ‘map’ of the foot. The history of these maps goes back to ancient Egyptian times.
The reflexology performed at Massage in Mackay incorporates the lower leg as well, working with the meridians and muscles of both the leg and foot. It’s a fabulous treatment to rejuvenate the lower limbs, improve foot mobilization and provide relaxation.

SCAR THERAPY

Scar tissue and adhesions from surgeries or injuries tend to spread throughout the fascia (a type of connective tissue) causing restrictions in how we move.
Scar Tissue Release Therapy aims to help reduce the cording and dragging of these adhesions releasing the fascia, thus improving the circulation of blood and lymph, improving range of motion of the limbs, and improving flexibility for freedom in movement.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY

The overall goal of this particular therapy is to relieve inflammation, support the immune system and help detoxify the body.
Using a technique developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy works by detecting the rhythm of lymph and using wave-like movements of the fingers to encourage the flow and direction of the fluids toward the lymph nodes. It’s a very effective treatment.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Remedial Massage incorporates a variety of therapeutic techniques, primarily looking at fascial restrictions, inflammation, restricted range of motion, postural misalignment, and pain areas to devise a plan of treatment for an outcome of comfort and freedom of movement.
Techniques are used to generate relaxation, initially, to prepare the tissues to be receptive to touch, then myofascial release, tuina, trigger point therapy, meridian connections, whichever the body responds to, then finishing with some relaxation again to bring a sense of calm and harmony to the tissues and mind.

RELAXATION MASSAGE

This is a massage style aimed to destress the client and to promote a sense of well-being and balance. Day to day life sometimes becomes overwhelming causing heightened cortisol levels which can weaken the immune system.
Using massage techniques along with essential oils, aura-soma colour therapy, reiki, tuina and energy work, the goal is to promote a balance of mind, body and soul.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

This soft tissue technique is used to release painful tension in muscles and fascia which is often experienced and described by my clients as a “knot in the muscle”.
There are different approaches to Trigger Point Therapy including soft tissue work, deep tissue work and ischemic compression where a direct finger or thumb pressure is applied until local or referred pain begins to modify. A combination of these three techniques throughout the massage can be very useful and effective.
