We do not give full-body Swedish massage at Essential Wellness. Our goal is to address your physical and energy imbalances on a deeper level than Swedish massage can provide.
We recommend that you try a session of Core Synchronism, Eden Energy Medicine, or Vibrational Raindrop. Each of these therapies will de-stress your body and relax it in addition to creating balance on a deep level.
We may also integrate various complementary techniques (such as polarity therapy, reflex point release, trigger point release, and neurolymphatic release) and herbal accessories (such as Essential Oils and/or Flower Remedies) during your session to give you a more complete therapeutic release.
Reflexology (Reflex Point Release)
There are reflex areas in the feet that correspond to every part of the body, including organs and glands. Any body part can be affected by stimulating the appropriate reflex on the foot. Reflexology is used to relieve stress and tension, stimulate deep relaxation, improve the blood supply, and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses to normalize and balance the entire body.
Your therapist’s knowledge of the physical and energy body connections allows them to determine and work on a “polarity point” that correspond to its opposite body part. Polarity points are found on the hands, feet, ears, face, and along the spine. By applying pressure to a polarity point, your therapist can affect the corresponding painful body part without working on it directly. Polarity therapy releases stress by addressing the blockages that inhibit energy flow that cause you pain and discomfort.
Trigger Point Release
A trigger point is a tight area within your muscle tissue that causes pain in another part of your body. For example, a trigger point in your back may produce referred pain in your neck. Your neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in your head. Your therapist will use trigger point technique to alleviate the stress that is the source of your pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. With this type of massage technique, you will be instructed to actively participate through deep breathing and by identifying the exact location of your discomfort and its intensity level.
Neurolymphatic Reflex Release
Your lymph system is responsible for the uptake of toxins and waste at a cellular level. When the lymph is congested, your physical and energy bodies are impeded and you may feel pain in affected areas. Your therapist uses neurolymphatic reflex release to encourage energy flow and the drainage of toxins. This is an extremely fast and effective way to release stress caused by toxins held in your lymphatic system.
