Introducing Hot Stone Massage Therapy

At our clinic in Tacoma we perform many types of massage therapy to treat a variety of health conditions.  We are proud to announce that we now offer Hot & Cold Stone Massage Therapy.

Indulge yourself in a Hot Stone Massage!
Have you heard about hot stone massage? If you have never experienced this unique indulgence, you owe yourself this exquisite moment. At our clinic in Tacoma we now offer Hot Stone Massage along with our other massages to help one to get and feel healthy.

Stone massage is a unique connection we experience with nature, offering a sense of profoundness and sacredness that we too often forget. It's a deep healing and unique moment that enhances our awareness and brings us closer to our true essence. It is the perfect treatment that is as enjoyable and can be healing therapy for the client as well as the practitioner!

Stone massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage.


In cases of muscular injury and inflammation, frozen, cooling stones are used. This creates a type of thermotherapeutic 'vascular gymnastics' in the circulatory system to help the body detoxify and heal. The warmer stones expand the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system. The cold stones cause the blood vessels to constrict, stimulating the nervous system and drawing blood and waste products along the body.

This ensures that every cell in the body receives more oxygen and nutrients while at the same time waste material is removed more effectively through the corresponding increase in lymph flow. Not unlike changing the old oil and filter in your car for a newer filter with clean oil?a service for the body.

At our clinic in Tacoma we can incorporate this type of massage with Laser Therapy, Infrared Sauna Therapy, Acupuncture, Rolfing and or Microccurent Therapy to maximize the therapeutic benefits.

 

It is quite an experience to feel the deeply relaxing, penetrating heat from the basalt stones alternating with the toning and refreshing coolness of the marble stones. The use of extremes of temperature has long been scientifically and medically proven to be of benefit to the body. Those who wish to relax and tone their muscles with a minimum of effort see this in the use of ice packs for muscle trauma and the use of saunas.

Many of our clients in Tacoma report Stone massage can make you feel deeply relaxed, allowing you to let go of all the stress that is held within your body. It is really an amazing experience to offer to the ones you love!

Those experiencing a hot stone massage may notice a healing improvement of the following symptoms:

  • Muscular aches, pains, sprains, and strains
  • Poor circulation
  • Rheumatic and arthritic conditions
  • Fibromyalgia
  • MS
  • Back pain
  • Stress, anxiety and tension
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

We welcome massage clients from Tacoma, Seattle, University Place, Fircrest, Gig Harbor, Federal Way, Puyallup, Olympia, Lakewood Wa, Auburn and Kent Washington.

Swedish Massage

 

What is a Swedish Massage?

The term "Swedish Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.

Purpose of Swedish Massage

The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

Swedish massage can shorten recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It may increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.

At our clinic in Tacoma we can incorporate this type of massage with Laser Therapy, Infrared Sauna Therapy, Acupuncture, Rolfing and or Microccurent Therapy to maximize the therapeutic benefits.

Swedish Massage Techniques

Swedish massage techniques include: long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration, effleurage, and shaking motions. The usually sequence of techniques are:

  1. Effleurage: Gliding strokes with the palms, thumbs and/or fingertips
  2. Petrissage: Kneading movements with the hands, thumbs and/or fingers
  3. Friction: Circular pressures with the palms of hands, thumbs and/or fingers
  4. Vibration: Oscillatory movements that shake or vibrate the body
  5. Percussion: Brisk hacking or tapping
  6. Passive and active movements: Bending and stretching

Benefits of Swedish Massage

Swedish massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, while promoting health and well being.

 Deep Tissue Massage

What is deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

Our massage clients in Tacoma report It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

How does deep tissue massage work?

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.

Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.

At our clinic in Tacoma we can incorporate this type of massage with Laser Therapy, Infrared Sauna Therapy, Acupuncture, Rolfing and or Microccurent Therapy to maximize the therapeutic benefits.

Will deep tissue massage hurt?

At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain.

It is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range.

There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.

What conditions is deep tissue massage used for?

Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as:

  • Chronic pain
  •   Limited mobility
  •   Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  •   Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  •  Postural problems
  •  Ostearthritis pain
  •   Fibromyalgia
  •   Muscle tension or spasm

    According to the August 2005 issue of Consumer Reports magazine, 34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine and over-the-counter drugs.

    Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain.

    People often notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.

What can I expect during my visit?

Massage therapists may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during the deep tissue massage.

You may be asked to breathe deeply as the massage therapist works on certain tense areas.
It is important to drink plenty of water as you can after the massage to flush metabolic waste from the tissues.

Precautions

Massage is not recommended for certain people:

infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds immediately after surgery immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor people with osteoporosis should consult their doctor before getting a massage prone to blood clots. There is a risk of blood clots being dislodged. If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage pregnant women should check with their doctor first if they are considering getting a massage. Massage in pregnant women should be done by massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage. Massage should not be done directly over bruises, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumors, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures.

Additional tips

Don't eat a heavy meal before the massage

Text Box: BioMedical Massage Therapy As we move into the 21st Century we see many exciting advances in medical technologies and treatments. New modes of healing are undoubtedly moving us beyond surgery and drugs, giving new hope to sufferers of chronic health conditions.

Miracle Instruments like the ones used in BioMedical therapy are the latest release of the most advanced technology to support the treatment of a whole host of health conditions.

What is BioMedical Massage Therapy?

BioMedical therapy is energy medicine. It is also referred to as Microcurrent Therapy since a very small amount of electrical energy is utilized. Microcurrent therapy is used to treat and alleviate pain, expedite wound healing, and crate an environment for local healing by increasing energy produced by cells and stimulating lymphatic drainage. BioMedical (microcurrent) Therapy works on the cellular level and is a painless, non-invasive treatment.

BioMedical Therapy may effectively reduce pain and promote faster healing for the following conditions:

Acute and chronic sprains and strains

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Torn muscles and ligaments
  • Overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel and tennis elbow
  • Neck and back pains
  • TMJ problems
  • Headaches
  • Pinched nerves

Because this therapy delivers a treatment that differs from other types of pain management, it is often effective when other treatments have failed. Many of our massage clients in Tacoma include microcurreent therapy with their other massages. Renee Parr is the only certified microcurrent therapist in the Tacoma area,

Microcurrent is a physical therapy that has been around in other countries for about 15 years, providing current in millionths of an amp. in which individual tissues and cellular disturbances are directly targeted with streams of life giving electrons, which help to normalise cellular energy production and function. Your own cells make current in microamps. These improvements in cellular bio-electric activity are considered the hallmarks of healthy cellular function and assist in reducing symptoms of degenerative diseases, reduce inflammation, relieve pain, reduce muscle spasms, prevent muscle loss, increase blood circulation and range of motion to injured areas and much more.

 

Your body seems to use the microcurrent energy to increase it's own energy production. Microcurrent increases the production of ATP, your own chemical energy production, by up to 500%. It also increases protein synthesis and waste product removal. The current is so low that it doesn't stimulate sensory nerves and you can't feel it. However for the skeptics that think that if you can't feel it, it isn't working, one can allow the gloves used to dry out and then you get a pins and needles sensation or turn it up for a real shock.

 

How does BioMedical Therapy help reduce pain and promote faster healing?

The human body is an electromagnetic system; individual organs, tissues and cells generate different electrical frequencies that change with disease and injury. This technique incorporates various low voltage electrical frequencies, applied with specific procedures to injured tissues.

Microcurrent Therapy helps return your body's electrical current to a normal activity level by improving circulation, cell metabolism, protein and nutrient use and the release of endorphins. All these improvements may reduce pain and inflammation, accelerate healing and help the body heal itself.

How does it work?

BioMedical therapy works by introducing a gentle current in waveforms similar to the body's own electrical currents. This increases the electrical activity of the affected tissue so that cells can begin the work of self repair.

It may seem like BioMedical therapy heals the tissue and organs of the body. It does not. BUT what it does do is make the body heal itself by stimulating not only the blood supply, lymph, ATP and oxygen to the area, but also by stimulating cellular regeneration.

Other ATP related microcurrent stimulatory effects include decreased inflammation, edema and swelling, and increased physical endurance in sports.

What is BioMedical Massage Therapy?

BioMedical Massage Therapy is a microcurrent assisted massage.

Massage is a nearly perfect therapy because it taps into the body's natural ability to heal itself, often eliminating the need for medication. Among its many physiological effects, massage can:

  • Stimulate the lymph system, the body's natural defense, against toxic invaders.
  • Relax and soften injured and overused muscles, reducing spasms and cramping.
  • Provide arthritis relief by increasing joint flexibility.
  • Reduce recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminate subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
  • Release endorphins, the body's natural painkiller to reduce pain in a number of health conditions.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and edema and reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred.

BioMedical Therapy is a combination of microcurrent and massage therapy. Thus BioMedical Massage Therapy benefits the patient in two ways. First one receives all the therapeutic benefits of microcurrent therapy. Second microcurrent significantly increase the effects of a regular massage.

For example Microcurrent therapy causes cells to release deeply stored toxins. Deep tissue massage also allows cells to release toxins.

20 minutes of the BioMedical Massage Therapy may releases as many toxins as four hours of deep tissue massage.
