Is an affective, hands-on technique that uses sustained pressure to reduce restrictions in the connective tissue system. Fascia is the packaging system of the body that surrounds and interweaves every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one structure that exists from head to foot without interruption. This way, you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.
In a normal healthy state, fascia has a flexible, elastic configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When we experience physical trauma, scarring, or inflammation, fascia loses its pliability.
There are numerous types and styles of massage therapy fall into the "deep tissue" category. Deep Tissue massage is typically Swedish based massage therapy.

It is normal to feel some soreness the day after a deep tissue massage.

Most strokes are done toward the heart with the goal of improving blood and lymphatic circulation. Varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements are incorporated.

Hot Stone Deep Tissue
Having trouble relaxing on the massage table? Try a hot stone massage.We place stones on points that are thought to be energy centers of the body to re-balance the body and mind. The heat from the stones softens the tissue, increases circulation and leaves you in a state of tranquility. Hot stones increase flexibility and joint mobility, relieves sinus pressure and pain, and restores equilibrium.
Reflexology is an ancient practice thousands of years old. It consists of massaging acupressure points on the feet to relieve stress, illness, pain and stimulate mental, emotional, physical healing and well-being in all body systems. It is said to build resistance to stress and rejuvenates by stimulating meridians, circulatory systems and detoxing.

It is also used for post-operative or palliative care. A study in the American Cancer Society Journal found that one-third of cancer patients used reflexology as a complimentary therapy.

experience Fiji barefoot massage technique I have made it my own by integrating structure, deep tissue and a variety of other techniques I have accumulated over the years. I have found its very effective for people suffering form low back and hip pain. this massage is preformed on the floor while you remain fully clothed in loose cloths. I do not walk on you, I massage you with my feet from a seated or standing position next to you. This is a great stand alone massage or you have the option to start with the Fijian and finish with a relaxing Swedish.
