Massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
This massage technique is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension by focusing on specific problem areas. The pressure is always adjusted to accommodate the client's comfort level.
With the client's active participation through deep breathing and identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort, this massage technique is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
Foot Reflexology massage can be deeply relaxing and a very good therapeutic modality for people who suffer from plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries or even everyday work.
