On this retreat, you will enjoy one complimentary massage. The resort also offers other services, such as Thai massage, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, and reflexology.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve chronic pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles, tendons, and fascia, the connective tissue surrounding the joints. The goal is to break down tense areas within the muscle, which cause pain, inflammation, and limit the motion of the muscles and joints.

Using deep muscle compression along the grain of the muscle, muscle fibers are loosened, toxins are released, and blood and oxygen circulation improves. A deep tissue massage is both corrective and therapeutic.

Reflexology

Reflexology has been in use for thousands of years as an alternative treatment for a wide variety of conditions. The benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate the central nervous system, boost circulation, eliminate toxins, clean up urinary tract conditions, prevent migraines, relieve pain, and speed recovery after injury or surgery.

The reflexologist applies pressure to areas in the hands or feet which represent specific areas of your body that can be adjusted or managed through these zones. A treatment of reflexology induces a deep state of relaxation and can result in increased energy levels, relief of sleep disorders and depression.

Swedish massage

A soothing Swedish massage calms the body, mind, and emotions. This technique uses long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Beyond relaxation, a Swedish massage improves circulation, increases the oxygen level in the blood, boosts immunity, enhances flexibility while easing tension, and decreases muscle toxins.

Thai massage

Thai massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and guided yoga postures. This dynamic bodywork therapy uses sequenced rhythmic pressure along the body’s energy lines and pressure points, along with assisted yoga stretches.

Joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, and internal organs are toned. The result is a comprehensive full-body treatment that relieves muscular tension, stimulates the body’s natural healing ability, and balances the body energetically.
