Sabai Sabai Massage
A Natural Way to Heal
Welcome, I am a Certified Massage Therapist and a firm believer in a holistic approach to healing: To prevent sickness; to use nature to heal yourself; to balance yourself with all elements (taste, smell, sound, touch and spirit); for natural balance in your body; for energy flow in your body.
Thai Yoga Massage
At the heart of Thai Yoga Massage and embodied in everything we do is the power of metta, or loving-kindness.
Based on yoga, ayurveda and the martial arts - hands, feet, arms and legs are used to gently guide you through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body's energy pathways and pressure points, known in the Thai tradition as sen lines.
This is the most common massage in the West and is designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation.
The basic techniques of effleurage, petrissage, friction, and percussion may be used all flowing toward the heart to manipulate the soft tissues of the body.
Warm and cold stones are used to bring about physical healing and mental relaxation.
During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body for energy balancing.
Deep Tissue Massage
Instead of gentle strokes, deep tissue uses sometimes vigorous hand movements with firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Ear candling is an alternative medicine practice used to improve general health and well-being.
Many people use ear candles purely for relaxation purposes. Other benefits include:
- Improved hearing
- Headache relief
- Release of build up of pressure in the ear
- Release of build up of ear wax
- Relief of sinus problems
- Relief from 'swimmers ear'
The lymphatic system is the body’s drainage system, returning excess fluids, nutrients, and waste products to the circulatory system.
Lymphatic drainage techniques help improve normal lymph flow which can reduce pain and strengthen the immune system.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a very light, circulatory massage, designed to increase the flow of lymph to its final destinations.
Ionic Foot Detox
Ionic Foot Detoxification is a gentle yet effective way to detox by submerging your feet in salt water. As water is ionized, the ions enter the body through the pores of the feet. The circulatory and lymphatic systems transport the ions throughout the body, neutralizing oppositely charged toxins in the cells. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal process of urination, defecation and sweating. Some toxins will leave through the pores of the feet.
Aroma Oil Therapy
Body massage with aroma oils have many healing benefits. These types of aroma oils or essential oils collected from various kinds of fruits, flowers, seeds and leaves of essential plants.
Many Aromatherapists believe aromatherapy can boost one’s well being. Relieve stress, reduce headache and tension and improve one’s body and mind.
