Choose from a variety of popular massage techniques

Massage Therapy Half Moon Bay

Acupressure

Used for thousands of years in China, acupressure is often thought of as acupuncture without the needles.

4-Handed Massage

A technique using two massage therapists working in sync to bring you a slow, deeply-relaxing, and rhythmic massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Jin Shin Do

A gentle yet effective finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal focusing techniques that help release chronic tension, balance the body’s energy, and improve vitality.

Prenatal Massage

Relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy. Reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Reiki

Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso.

Shiatsu Massage

Massages with fingers, thumbs, feet and palms; assisted stretching; and joint manipulation and mobilization.

SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes and its technique depends on the sport. Emphasis is placed on the areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.

Swedish Massage

Long, continuous strokes at a medium to light pressure. Friction and kneading techniques are used to stimulate circulation, flush the circulatory system, release tight muscles, restore range of motion, and to relieve pain.

Tui Na

Techniques include brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, and rubbing the areas between each of the joints to open the body’s defensive chi (Wei Qi) and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles.
