At Palms Restorative Spa we offer 11 Types of Massage Modalities 

Palms employs massage therapists trained in a variety of specialties, giving you 11 types of massage modalities to choose from on your visit.

Our Therapists work hard to learn more about you and the types of activities and work you do so we can best prescribe the modality that will alleviate any issues you may be experiencing, often blending different modalities into one session, a hybrid massage if you like.

Whether it’s recovery from an injury or accident, stress relief, pain relief from sports or old injuries or sitting in front of a computer all day; our therapists will work with you to ensure you are getting the best possible experience during your 20, 60, or 90-minute massage.

Swedish Massage

If you’ve never experienced a massage before, or are sensitive to touch, we often start with a Swedish massage. Our therapists will use this technique if you are seeking a relaxing massage that will release the tension in your muscles and provide a soothing experience that might just lull you to sleep. Peace will be unto you.

 

Deep Tissue Massage

For those who have a high tolerance for pain, have muscle problems or chronic pain; deep tissue massage may be for you. Deep pressure is applied, allowing the massage therapist to reach deeper layers of your muscles and creating a more intense experience, by releasing pressure points that may be causing you pain or discomfort. 

 

Hot Stone Massage

Just as the name implies, our therapists use hot stones in this massage technique. The stones help improve blood flow and relieve pain. The heated stones are placed around your body and used to apply deeper pressure on sore areas or tight muscles. This unique experience is one you must indulge in as the stones create a softer muscle and facia release of tension and soreness.

 

Thai Stretch

Thai massage combines compression, acupressure, and passive stretching. These increase the range of motion in your joints and muscles. This can also improve your posture. Helps with back pain. Practitioners use their entire bodies, including their hands, elbows, feet, and knees to stand, kneel, or walk on the recipient and create deep pressure.

Body Wraps

Exfoliation; Enjoy a Swedish massage with this service & rid your body of unwanted drying skin to reveal a smooth, hydrated complexion. Seaweed Wraps; Seaweed is one of the most beneficial body treatments available today. It helps remove toxins and impurities by working deep into the skin. Packed with minerals seaweed aids wellness while removing unwanted, unhealthy cells

Prenatal Massage

Pregnant women can safely and comfortably seek relief from discomfort with prenatal massage, often provided on a table in a side-lying position. Prenatal massage helps with aches and pains associated with pregnancy and can help alleviate stress and anxiety. From head to toes, expecting mothers deserve to treat and indulge yourselves.  

 

Cupping

Cupping became more popular in the United States when Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps arrived at a competition in 2016 with purple circles on his back from a cupping treatment. Cupping uses special cups that provide suction and negative pressure, pulling muscles as opposed to typical massage which pushes on the muscles. Cupping helps relieve pain, loosen muscles, and encourage blood flow; leaving you feeling more relaxed. Don't worry the cupping marks only last from just a few hours to up to 48. 

 

Cranio-Sacral

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on therapy that alleviates headaches, muscle pain, anxiety, pressure, general strain and chronic pain. CST works with the cerebral spinal fluid, cranial bones and connective tissue to relieve restrictions in the body and create synchronicity of these symptoms. This technique is provided by certified therapist and an incredible treat for your health and relaxation.

 

Couples Massage

With two massage tables alongside one another, couples massage requires two therapists working together to bring comfort and relief to two individuals. Couples massage does not have to be for a “couple” in the traditional sense. Quite often, mothers and daughters, best friends or anyone can come in and save time by combining two treatments at once, while chatting with one another or relaxing in a quiet atmosphere. Enjoy Palms refreshments in the atmosphere of pure royalty.
