Relaxation massage is a smooth, gentle style of massage designed to improve circulation, range of movement, relief minor muscle pain, and promote overall relaxation.

Relaxation Massage Therapy

This style of massage is strictly for the purposes of rest and relaxation.  This is not a deep tissue massage, and it is not designed for therapeutic effects or for dealing with chronic pain or discomfort.  This style of massage is a gentle to medium pressure, gently manipulating the tissue to promote relaxation, covering a generalized range of areas on the body including the back, legs, arms and neck.

Other techniques can be used to maximize your relaxation massage such as:

1) The use of Aromatherapy Oils – these are high quality essential oils that have therapeutic benefit such as relaxing, energizing, stress-reducing, or balancing.  

2) Reiki – Laurie is 3rd degree Reiki certified in the Japanese Usui system.

Human beings are energy systems. If we accept this premise, then life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy systemReiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well being to the recipient.  

When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" or “Qi” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur, we are more likely to get sick. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way. Along this same premise,  if our “life force energy” or “qi” it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being.

Reiki energy treatments provide a means to balance the human energy fields (auras), and energy centers (chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function. We suffer when we don't have enough energy to carry out our life functions or when we, as energy systems, are out of balance. The effect of receiving a Reiki treatment is that our supply of life energy is increased and we return to balance. In this state of balance and renewed energy we can heal.

One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities, and improves and maintains health.

By reducing stress, and inducing relaxation, Reiki is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.
