Relaxation Massage
Relaxation massage uses smooth, gliding strokes for the purpose of helping you to relax. The massage uses a light pressure and is applied at a slow pace. Less emphasis is placed on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and Reva won’t push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. People often fall asleep during a relaxation massage. The essential health benefits from a relaxation massage includes promoting a sense of well-being, calming the nervous system,  improving blood circulation and stimulating your lymphatic system, help it rid the body of  away waste products.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep-tissue massage specifically concentrates on the fascia which is a layer of fibrous tissue and the deep layers of muscle in the body. Reva will apply deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes while performing deep tissue massage to treat a many physical ailments.  Doctors often recommend deep-tissue massage to their patients. This is because it has many benefits such as reducing chronic pain. Deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through through the body which helps reduce the inflammation causing pain and can also help alleviate muscle tension which is often a side effect of chronic pain.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage uses specialized stones called basalt stones. Basalt stones hold heat which Reva uses to create a deep tissue massage for the purpose of relaxing tight, knotted muscles and to release tension. Hot stone massage is relaxing and offers several health benefits including release tension, easing muscle stiffness and increasing circulation and metabolism.  The direct heat of the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing Reva to access the deeper muscle layers. A combination of a hot stone protocol with a full body massage is a very effective healing experience by expanding the blood vessels encouraging blood to flow throughout the body. The hot basalt stones have a sedative effect that can  reduce stress, relieve chronic pain,  and promote deep relaxation.
