Here at Flawless Faces we offer a range of Body Massage to relax and unwind. We offer various methods of massaging and include the following:
This method of massaging is the most popular type of massage and includes a variety of strokes and was developed by the Swede Professor Ling. This type of massage is beneficial to promote the feeling of well-being and also helps to reduce emotional and physical stress.
- Lymphatic massage
This massage helps to improve the flow of lymph using some techniques which are incorporated in aromatherapy massage. Lymph drainage massage is particularly useful in detoxifying the body and to boost the immune system.
- Acupressure massage and Shiatsu
This method of massage is focused on the meridians (channels) of the body and to relieve “blockages” through pressure on certain points of the body. It can be performed while the person is fully clothed and requires no needles such as in acupuncture.
In reflexology the feet (although the rest of the body can also be used) are manipulated and massaged and focus is placed on certain points on the feet that are said to have corresponding body parts or organs.
- Sports massage
Sports massage includes deep tissue, cross frictions and the trigger point technique which helps remove waste products from the muscles, removes adhesions and tension from tight muscles, and allows fresh blood to flow in, therefore improving performance. It also promotes the release of the feel-good hormone endorphin. We offer pre-sport and post-sport massage, post-injury massage, or general sports massage for tight muscles brought on by postural imbalances. These imbalances could either be the result of poor training methods, lack of stretching after training, or problems originating from the spine, hips, knees or feet. Sports massage isn’t just for sports people, and anyone can benefit from a sports massage, from desk bound people looking for relief in tight necks to mom’s with tight backs!
Lomi-lomi -is like no other massage you or your clients will experience. The head to toe continuous rhythmic touch will assist the body with its own natural balance of kinetic energy flow. The free flowing energy then gently aligns the whole being with higher healing vibrations where negative or imbalanced energy (illness and stress) cannot exist. This leaves one feeling peaceful, uplifted, rejuvenated and inspired. In the session the body releases tension and negative patterns (neurological and psychological) in the physical, mental and emotional planes of the body.
Working with the temple of the soul (the body) with breath, awareness and loving intention creates a sacred space for the deep release and healing from anything holding us back from experiencing and expressing the truest essence of who we are. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you from, or what you do. If you do this massage with the basic principles of unconditional love, the spirit of aloha, respect, honour and sacredness, the effects will always be the same.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. A hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.
