These massage types offered at our Enon and Columbus offices:

(If needed your massage therapist can use a combination of massage techniques during your massage).

Hawiian Lomi Lomi Massage: is a unique healing massage derived from the ancient Polynesians and more specifically the master healers of Hawaii. The Hawaiians view all aspects of the body as one and believe that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all part of the "whole" self - when healing is effected on one level, all levels are affected. Good health depends on having all aspects in an harmony. The patient on the table is not viewed as someone to be fixed, but a being to be returned to harmony and balance.

Lomi Lomi Massage Lomi Lomi facilitates healing on the mental, emotional and spiritual level. The practitioner does not heal but is the facilitator for the healing. The Lomi massage increases an overall sense of calmness, well-being and happiness. On a physical level, it relaxes the nervous system, stress and tension are relieved, blood and lymph flow assisted and the elimination of wastes and toxins stimulated. It is useful for maintaining health, and relieving pain.

Lomi techniques are used to free up the energy flow by releasing the energy blockages, while at the same time giving the energy new direction. A combination of prayers, breathing techniques and intuitive massage strokes are used. Gentle stretches of the body and gentle rotations of the joints are also incorporated to assist the release of tensions and assist the flow of energy. Another key part of this massage is that the strokes are given in long fluid, rhythmic motion flowing over the body. Practitioners use the palms, forearms, fingers, knuckles, elbows. At some points one entire side of the body will be massaged in long strokes moving from the shoulders all the way to the feet.

Many people ask for a detailed description and compare each Lomi Lomi experience. There are no definitive Lomi Lomi massage techniques, a set format, or sequence. They are determined on a case basis, depending upon the massage therapist and the client requirements. No two massages will ever be identical. The goal is: To rejuvenate mind, body and spirit by removing energy blockages and opening energy pathways within the body.

Swedish massage: Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (light touch), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), compression, and vibration. It is commonly called "Relaxation Massage."

Somatic Release: A slow and gentle, but powerful and effective neuromuscular re-education process that releases chronic muscular tension and replaces pathological neuromuscular patterns (Abnormal/Bad patterns)with healthy ones. It works by reprogramming the brain's control of the body(Contraction/Relaxation of muscles). Somatics is particularly useful in correcting a wide range of conditions. It restores developmental and organic movement capability to the body, releasing chronic pain and creating ever greater awareness, connection, fluidity, flexibility and comfort. Somatic Release work facilitates and enhances physical and emotional healing.

Neuromuscular Massage: Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure should not vary for ten to thirty seconds.

Trigger Point Therapy is a subset of neuromuscular therapy which examines and treats muscles and muscle attachments in layers from superficial to deep, ligaments and connective tissues. Trigger point massage is not a relaxing, "fluff and buff" Trigger Point Massage technique. It requires the participation of the client to communicate the presence and intensity of pain and discomfort. The therapist and client work together as a team to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment. Pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow, until the therapist feels the tissue/muscle release. This action flushes the toxins and calms the nerves. Releasing trigger points releases endorphins so the result is elimination of discomfort as well as being energized. It is common to find great improvement after one treatment. Repeated treatment may be necessary for those with chronic trigger points. Stretching should be done as "home work" to encourage the muscles that have been treated to stay in a lengthened position.

Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. Often times they feel like nodules or taut bands of fibers within the soft tissues. Trigger points form in muscles which have been overused or injured due to an accident or surgery. Common characteristics are increased muscle tension and muscle shortening. Increased muscle tension is the primary side-effect of trigger points and pain is the most common secondary effect. Trigger points can present themselves as referred patterns of sensation such as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, hot or cold, as well as can create symptoms such as nausea, ear ache, equilibrium disturbance, or blurred vision. Trigger points can exist in two states, either active or latent. Active trigger points are those which cause discomfort. Latent trigger points wait silently in the muscle for a future stress to activate them. Aches and pains which began in the past become more frequent and severe in intensity as we age. It is common to attribute this discomfort to arthritis instead of our tight muscles which harbor trigger points.

Deep tissue massage: Is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesions.")

Myofascial Release: Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Our licensed massage therapist has been serving the Columbus Ohio area since 1996.
