Massage pro santé - Massage methods and techniques

Massage methods are practiced solely or combined in one session.


Techniques are applied in respect to your symptoms and needs


Swedish massage or classical massage

This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

Deep tissue massage

Uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. Commonly used to treat muscle injuries.

Sports massage

Similar to Swedish or classic massage, it is suitable for sports people because it releases muscle blockages and toxins.

Trigger point massage

Operates on areas where the muscle fibers have become dense and sensitive after injuries or intense efforts.

Ayurvedic massage

Part of Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine technique. The Practice involves the balance of the three life forces: vata, pitta and kapha.

Reflexology

Application of appropriate pressures on the reflex zones of the feet,hands or ears. Each specific point corresponds to an organ or a body system.

Manual Lymph drainage

Stimulates lymph nodes and the movement of the lymph. Increases its flow rate and drains toxic fluids from the body.
