Shiatsu massage in Alexandria Virginia massage therapy studio

Shiatsu, originally from Japan, is a type of massage that literally translates to "finger pressure". This technique incorporates stretching, massage, and the application of finger pressure to specific areas along meridian points of the body to help remove blockages, balance qi (energy), and alleviate discomfort.

Shiatsu 

Reiki (ray-kee) is both a holistic healing practice and spiritual path developed in early 20th century Japan. Similar to the subtle flow of Prana in a Yoga class or Qi/Chi in the course of a Qigong or Tai Chi practice, Reiki is vital energy that balances our body and mind. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the client in order to stimulate emotional or physical healing.

By allowing the healing energy to flow freely throughout the body, Reiki is believed to help resolve emotional distress and energy blockages. Improving the body’s energetic alignment may result in relaxation through a reduction of stress and anxiety, an improved sense of well-being, and a decrease of pain and tension throughout the body.

Our Reiki sessions are currently offered as stand-alone Reiki sessions OR as a Reiki+Massage infusion sessions. All of our Reiki sessions include complementary sound healing (if desired).

 

What is sound healing?

Sound healing is the use of specialized frequency tuned instruments that create tones and other sonic vibrations to balance and heal the body, mind, and spirit.

Reiki massage for energy healing

Himalayan salt stone massage uses heated mineral Himalayan salt stones. Differing from a traditional basalt hot stone massage, Himalayan stones naturally help in balancing the body's ion levels. Once heated, these stones emit negative ions which deliver an array of positive health benefits including but not limited to; decreased inflammation, improved circulation, a reduction of anxiety, and an improved sense of well-being and relaxation. Additionally, Himalayan stones are made of pure Himalayan salt which provide the added benefit of replenishing and nourishing your skin and body with over 80 minerals. The texture of these stones also lightly exfoliate the skin for a softer and smoother feeling. Other benefits of Himalayan salt stone massage may include prevention of muscle cramps, lowered blood pressure, balanced nervous system, improved sleep, relief of muscle pain and soreness, and boosted immunity.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release Massage

Myofascial Release, founded by John F. Barnes, is a therapeutic massage technique that focuses on releasing the restricted tension of the fascia. Fascia is the continuous layer of connective tissue that surrounds all of the muscles and organs within the entire body. Myofascial release includes gentle to intense techniques that involve slow, sustained, and direct contact with the skin while using little to no lotion or oil. The intentional release of stagnant and restricted fascia can improve pain, posture, and mobility.

Myofascial Release sessions can be scheduled with Tim and Viviane

90-minute Myofascial Release massage $185
