Swedish Massage consists of a relaxing oil massage, incorporating effleurage, petrasage and kneading for long rejuvenating stokes to the back, legs and extremities.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue incorporates techniques of Swedish with deep stokes and concentrated kneading for release and unwinding very tight muscular and stress related areas.
Sports Therapy: Sports Therapy is used in conjunction with Deep tissue. Cross-tissue trigger Point applications help to release muscles where an injury has occurred. Sports Therapy is applicable when a vigorous, rejuvenating and active participation is encouraged.
Aromatherapy comes into play with all of the scented massage products from Pure Touch. LuAnne utilizes particular properties of certain essential oils to create an atmosphere to sedate, enliven and rejuvenate certain organs or to create a general overall pleasant experience of sensual bliss.
Body Scrubs, wraps and other body treatments
One of the most popular body treatments is the Luffa Scrub. For this treatment the therapist utilizes an all over back exfoliation with a thirty minute massage after the scrub. Hot moist towels warm the body to prepare the skin for exfoliation. A salt or sugar poultice is applied with a luffa sponge and circular motions aid in the ability to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliation is particularly beneficial to healing and releasing toxins from the body. Exfoliation is recommended seasonally, especially when diet or detox is underway for a better sense of health and well-being.
Essential Oil Therapy
With LuAnne’s essential oil therapy, essential oil applications are incorporated into the massage oils and/or lotions and allowed to penetrate while massage is applied. The concentration on certain properties of the oils help to create the desired effect of relaxation and rejuvenation for the body and psyche.
