BODYWORK BY JIVATMA MASSAGUER
SARGA BODYWORK: Sarga Bodywork is a barefoot massage method that employs the use of a fabric strap fastened to a massage table to deliver therapeutic deep tissue and myofascial techniques. Gravitational and tensional force combined with the broad contact surface of the foot are used by practitioners to facilitate less restriction and more ease and relaxation in recipients’ bodies.
DEEP TISSUE: Deep tissue is a technique that targets deeper and more specific layers of muscle and fascia. It is ideal for those suffering from chronic injuries or those that practice a lot of physical activity.
FASCIAL RELEASE CUPPING THERAPY: A new take on a time honored treatment, fascial release cupping therapy utilizes medical grade silicone cups to create powerful suction. Oil is applied to the skin and cups are moved across the body to facilitate soft tissue release and increase blood flow in a manner that is not possible with compressive techniques.
LOMILOMI: Importance is placed on the practitioners' state of presence and awareness. Characteristic of lomilomi is the use of forearms to deliver long rhythmic strokes, making it a deeply relaxing and flowing technique.
SWEDISH MASSAGE: Swedish massage is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. It uses a variety of strokes such as effleurage, compression and friction. Its main benefits are relaxation and increased circulation.
