SPA AND MASSAGEbw antea palace hotel spa and massage
Reflexology is an ancient healing art based on the principles that there are reflexes in the hands and feet that correspond to every part, organ and gland in the body.
Reflexology, or zone therapy, is the practice of massaging, squeezing, or pushing on parts of the feet, or sometimes the hands and ears, with the goal of encouraging a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, or to improve general health. The therapist stimulates and works these organs and systems through the reflexes areas on the hands and feet, applying pressure to the feet with thumb and fingers.
Reflexology has many benefits. It feels good. It is pleasant and soothing, and it relaxes the body. Each person responds to a reflexology in a unique way and on occasions may experience a variety of short term reactions, for example, extreme relaxation, tiredness, lethargy or tearfulness. Reflexology is not a 'cure-all'. However, it does help releive pain associated with migraine, sinus problems, breathing disorders, digestive problems, circulatory problems, back problems, tension and stress
Thai massage is an ancient ayurvedic healing art. It is a meditative practice for both client and practitioner, reflecting the states of loving kindness and compassion. Thai massage has always been taught as a spiritual practice done with prayers and as a meditation.
Thai Massage is one of the hot "new" massages offered by most spas, but it was actually developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body's energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body's energy systems. It is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part
Trigger Point Massage
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may reduce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
Physical Therapy Massage
Physical therapy, broadly speaking, involves direct manipulation of muscles, joints and other parts of the body affected by an injury or chronic illness. It often involves strength training, heat treatments, massage and supervised exercises. Individual regimens often depend on the type of injury or condition, the patient's age and specialized treatments prescribed by a medical professional.
Sometimes, physical therapy is used to address the injury itself and other times it is used to help the patient compensate for the loss of use. Physical therapists may use strength training, for example, to make life on a walker or in a wheelchair more bearable. Other forms of therapy may actually improve the patient's range of motion or realignment of the affected area. Patients may have to learn how to use their non-dominant hand or develop a new walking style to accommodate a prosthesis
This special form of treatment exerts immediate influence on cell tension, cell structure and cell energy.
By applying the set treatment procedure and the individual but nevertheless specific sequence of grips we can purposively recondition the coherence, that is, the order of the cells, and strengthen cellular tension and the immune system.The stress hormone cortisole, on the other hand, had decreased after the massages. The researchers therefore conclude that the massages are useful in the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune disease.
