Massage Therapy is more than just a luxurious treatment. When incorporated into a monthly routine, it has been proven beneficial to health and wellness and improves quality of life. I perform several different types of Massage services for City Wellness as well as Body Scrubs, Body Wraps, Reiki Energy Healing, and Ayurvedic Treatments. Explore the various options below.
SWEDISH MASSAGE - A very peaceful and rejuvenating massage designed to relax and calm the body and mind. Through long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration, and shaking motions, blood is forced back towards the heart. This, in turn, increases the oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. Much attention is paid to the origin and insertion points of the muscles. This is a light to medium pressure massage.

DEEP TISSUE & SPORTS MASSAGE - This form of massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release chronic tension in the body through slow, deep, strokes and deep finger pressure applied to constricted muscle areas. Deep tissue massage is wonderful for breaking up and releasing scar tissue and adhesions. This form of massage generally focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or following the massage. A lot of toxins are released from the muscles with deep tissue work. Sports Massage is a deep tissue massage with added stretching and energizing modalities. This is a firm to deep pressure massage.

LOMI LOMI MASSAGE - Lomi Lomi is a very healing, Hawaiian Shamanic temple based massage that gently puts the individual into a meditative state, allowing for deeper work on the muscles and deeper relaxation. Lomi Lomi is performed to rhythmic music and incorporates massage techniques that allow the individual to feel as if he or she were weightless, suspended, gently rocking in water. Lomi Lomi energizes while deeply relaxes. This can be a light to deep pressure massage, depending on your individual comfort level.

RAINDROP THERAPY - This 90 minute treatment involves 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils being dripped onto the spinal column and then massaged into and around the spine. Each oil application involves anywhere from 3-7 drops of the pure essential oil and a certain massage technique that effectively works the oil into the spine. From the spine, the oil moves into the capillaries and into the blood stream. The oils and the spinal massage unwind, detox, relax, and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. A warm compress is then applied to the back to allow the essential oils to move deeper into the skin, muscles, and spine, and a full body massage follows. This is a wonderful treatment for detoxification as many of the oils used are antimicrobial and thermogenic. Not recommended for pregnant mommies to be. A carrier oil is also used to act as a barrier between the skin and the pure essential oils for safety reasons.

All above therapies employ the use of Trigger Point work, Acupressure, a luxurious Hot Towel application, and Aromatherapy.
HIMALAYAN SALT STONE MASSAGE - This full body massage deeply relaxes as it balances the central nervous system. It uses hand carved salt crystals from one of the most pristine environments in the world – salt caves deep below the Himalayan Mountains. This treatment combines Swedish massage techniques, thermal therapy, salt therapy, reflexology and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The salt stones are warmed and used on strategic Chinese reflex points and meridians in specific combinations to balance the body's energy pathways and electromagnetic field. This results in very deep relaxation, improved sleep and reduced inflammation in addition to mild detoxification and exfoliation.

TABLETOP THAI MASSAGE - This massage is performed on a table, with the client remaining fully clothed. Utilizing gravity, Jennifer uses body to achieve maximum weight and leverage. Thai massage is often referred to as passive yoga or a meditative dance, in which the client and practitioner merge into one continuous movement. Passive stretching combined with acupressure and rhythmic compressions are used to increase flexibility while relieving tension in the muscles. Pressure is applied with hands, thumbs, forearms and feet. Thai Massage not only calms the mind and nervous system, it balances the body’s energy. The pressure on this massage varries depending on the client's needs.

REFLEXOLOGY - Traditional Chinese Medicine states that the feet are maps for the entire body. It is believed that applying pressure to certain areas of the feet stimulates and works all of the major organs and systems in the body. Reflexology can also be performed on the face and ears to relieve sinus congestion and restore normal breath function.

REIKI AND ENERGY HEALING - Reiki was originally practiced amongst Tibetan Buddhist monks, and has been practiced for over 2,500 years. The term Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. In this form of energy work, life energy (chi, ki, prana) is directly applied to the client through a series of hand positions. The client is clothed, and Jennifer places her hands directly on the client, over his/her clothes, and the energy flows through Jennifer's hands into the client's body so that the body may then begin to heal itself. Once in the body, the Reiki energy flows straight to the root cause of the client's dis-ease. Additionally, Jennifer will work her way through the entire chakra system, balancing and stabilizing each chakra's flow of energy to bring the client back to inner peace and harmony.

AYURVEDIC BODY TREATMENTS
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian healing science of balancing the elements within an individual's body for healing and rejuvenation. According to the science, when a body is out of balance, they have a certain dosha constitution. The Sanskrit term "dosha" means "imbalance". Vata dosha is an imbalance of ether/space and air. Pitta dosha is an imblance of fire. Kapha dosha is an imbalance of water and earth. The Sanskrit term "tridoshic" means that the herbs used will work towards balancing all the doshas, and thus all the elemental imbalances in the body leading to a life of health and wholeness.
AYURVEDIC HERBAL BODY WRAP - Your body is covered with a tridoshic herbal butter blend to promote detoxification and healing. You are then wrapped in the herbal mixture to allow for it to penetrate deep into your skin. While wrapped, enjoy a relaxing face and scalp massage. You are then unwrapped, and any remaining product is massaged into your skin while any remaining herbs are removed with a warm towel.
