SOUL RETREAT SPA
Welcome to Soul Retreat Spa, the newest, most comfortable, relaxing urban retreat around!
Our Body Massage is the combination of special movements that increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body. The following are the combination of movements we use:
Long, sweeping strokes (effleurage), usually used at the start and end of a massage;
Muscle kneading and rolling (petrissage), where the muscles are worked on just like kneading dough;
Friction, where deep pressure is applied to a particular spot with the thumb, fingertips, or knuckles;
Rhythmic tapping (tapotement), fast percussion movements like chopping and even pounding.
Foot reflexology is a therapy based on the principle that there are small and specific areas of innervation in the feet that correspond to specific muscle groups or organs of the body. In this system, the nerve endings in the extremities provide a “map” of the rest of the body.
Examples are the base of the little toe representing the ear, or the ball of the foot representing the lung. Through the application of pressure on particular areas of the feet, reflexology is said to promote benefits such as the relaxation of tension, improvement of circulation, and support of normalized function in the related area in the body.
During a hot stone massage, your body is not only weighted down with hot, smooth stones, but the masseuse also uses the stones to massage your body. It's like being caressed by the smoothest (rollerball-like) hands, giving you a "Yeeoww!….Ahh" effect as you exhale.
A hot stone massage is mostly relaxing, but it also is more invigorating than your run-of-the-mill massage. The heat from the hot stones helps release the tension in your back and shoulders, soothing your muscles, allowing a relaxation that will melt away stress, improve your energy and make you feel truly at peace.
