Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
Enjoy having the luxury and comforts of getting a massage at home without ruining your massage driving in traffic or having to go anywhere. The cost of mileage will be added to time of service if the location is not in Rio Rancho/Albuquerque area. Thank you for you understanding.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, since the elderly don't typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression. Seniors over the age of 65 will receive a 10% discount on all services.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Lomi Lomi is the Hawaiian word for "massage", and it is part of a larger native Hawaiian tradition of healing and natural body care. According to Hawaiian tradition, all living beings are seeking a state of balance and love in the world. During a Lomi Lomi session, therefore, I focus on not only relaxing your body through gentle touch, but also reviving your spirit and filling your body with the energy of love.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
The purpose of the massage is to deal with any dysfunctional areas or problems in the soft-tissues of the body. It differs from therapeutic massage as it does not focus on relieving tension or stress from the body. It is usually used for patients who are recovering from injuries or surgical procedures. The doctor will inform the client if he or she could benefit from massage therapy as it is often used to help speed healing and recovery.
After an injury has occurred the patient usually avoids using those muscles of the body until the injury has healed. During this time, with no use or movement of the affected area, these muscle groups become very stiff and out of shape. Medical massage therapy is used to slowly rehabilitate the unused muscles. It helps to promote healthy movement and functioning of the newly healed area of the body while also preventing further injuries from occurring.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction facilitates healing with blood flow, as well as the flow of “qi” in the body. Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This can relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It can also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. People use cupping to complement their care for a host of ailments and conditions.
The researchers found that cupping therapy may help with the following conditions, among others:
- herpes zoster
- facial paralysis
- cough and dyspnea
- lumbar disc herniation
- cervical spondylosis
There are many benefits to a body scrub or polish. A body scrub will exfoliate your skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and rubbing away hard and flaky skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Scrub or polishing products usually include an oily base which moisturizes and soothes your skin as it is scrubbed.
A scrub can be really invigorating as well, and improve the circulation of blood and lymph to the surface of the skin, helping to fight cellulite and improve your skin tone.
Sugar scrubs can be taken as the most innate way of softening, exfoliating, and freshening up your skin. This is because sugar is a sweetener by nature and can therefore be applied as a natural skin care regimen. The fine texture of sugar exfoliates your skin gently without imparting any harmful residue which can lead to clogging of pores. Also, it contains moisturizing qualities which prevent the skin from getting dry. A sugar scrub can be used even on the soft skin of children, for example, to heal chapped lips.

Incorporating CBD into Massage Therapy
The benefits of both massage therapy and CBD individually provide great relief to the body. When CBD is incorporated into massage therapy the results can be more intense. CBD will bind and act on the CB2 receptors which can be found near the skin. This will activate the endocannabinoid system to deliver relief.
Since CBD is non-psychoactive so you do not have to worry about getting a high feeling from the CBD massage. If you were to get a massage that incorporated both THC and CBD topical products, you still wouldn't feel a high. This study concludes that the body has a low absorption rate for these cannabinoids and never absorbed into the bloodstream.

Hot Towel treatment
Moist Heat Effects
Moist heat sources -- like hot towels -- transfer heat more quickly and effectively to the skin and underlying superficial tissues than does dry heat, according to a December 2013 report in the "Journal of Clinical Medicine Research." Applying moist, hot towels also increase blood flow to the skin more quickly than dry heat sources, according to a study published in September 2009 in the "Archives of Dermatological Research." When used to treat muscle pain -- such as after an intense workout -- applying hot moist towels is most effective in the first 24 hours, according to the 2013 study. For optimum muscle-healing benefits through increased blood flow, another form of moist heat delivery may be best, as towels cool quickly.
Integrating With Massage
Massage therapy increases blood flow and skin temperature for up to 60 minutes, according to a July 2010 "Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine" report. Since both moist heat and massage are used to relieve post-exercise muscle soreness, these therapies are often integrated. One option is to apply hot moist towels for 20 minutes to 2 hours immediately following exercise and follow that with a massage focusing on the muscles used in your workout.
Ensure the towel temperature is not too hot before applying it to your body. Additionally, check with a health-care professional before using hot towels if you have a pre-existing health condition that affects temperature sensation or circulation, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease.
The firm bristles of the brush remove dead cells and exfoliating the skin to make it softer, smoother and even cleaner. They also stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a key role in your body's ability to detox. Working on your upper arms, legs, and other trouble areas, you’ll find that dry brushing breaks down toxins and helps you flush them out. Since the whole process promotes blood circulation, many people experience an increase in energy immediately after dry brushing.
A treatment for the symptoms of joint and muscle conditions, such as arthritis, that involves applying melted mineral wax derived from petroleum to a body area. Paraffin dips can be especially helpful in relieving the pain and stiffness of arthritis involving the small joints of the hands. The hands are repeatedly dipped into the melted, warm wax, and the wax is allowed to cool and harden around the sore joints.
