Ashiatsu massage is a massage specialty in which the therapist uses her feet instead of her hands and can be tailored to anyone able to lay face down and receive a regular massage, especially ideal for those seeking a deep tissue massage near Columbia.
Myofascial Release utilizes a set of gentle yet effective techniques, such as mild compressions and stretching, that targets the fascia (connective tissue surrounding bones, muscles and organs and keep them "glued" together). Restrictions in the fascial system prevents adequate circulation and can lead to muscle tension, pain, and malfunctioning of the body's organs. When the fascia becomes entangled and hardens, toxins get trapped, creating a series of symptoms that negatively affect your health. Restoring the flow and the flexibility in the fascial system allows the body to heal itself naturally to homeostasis (healthy balance).
Medicupping is a trademark massage therapy technique of vacutherapy by ACE massage cupping. During a Medicupping session, a cupping machine is used to allow the therapist to adjust suction level and pumping action while gliding, twisting, shaking, scooping the cups. Medicupping is like a "reverse massage" where fascia and skin is pulled instead of pushed to relieve pain and increase blood flow to ischemic areas. For more information, go to massagecupping.com
Access Bars is a type of energy work that is done on the client's head. 32 access points of energy on the head influence our life (i.e. peace, calm, body, healing, joy, sadness, creativity, money, control). By allowing the release of trapped energy, both recipient and receiver benefit from becoming "lighter," that is experiencing a life with more joy, ease and abundance. Some report less physical pain as well as less emotional pain after an Access Bars session. We are proud to provide energy work to Columbia SC!
An Ashiatsu massage is a type of massage in which the therapist uses her feet to deliver the best therapeutic treatment and achieve relaxation and/or alleviate chronic aches and pains. The therapist undergoes specialized training in order to use suspended parallel bars for support and balance.
A typical Ashiatsu therapeutic massage utilizes slow, deep strokes and compressions to warm, release, and penetrate your muscles. Ashiatsu's pressure is broader than a regular deep tissue massage (without the "pointy" feeling of a thumb or elbow) providing a more comfortable and relaxing experience. Ashiastu's pressure can be adjusted for each client's comfort and can be as deep as your therapist's full body weight or as a gentle as a Swedish massage with medium pressure.

Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time and who like deeper pressure work. This type of massage is only recommended for those uncomfortable with Ashiatsu techniques and prefer receiving massages with their therapist's hands or tools.
Hot Stone Massage is often paired with Swedish or Deep tissue massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to sooth, warm, and massage your muscles. This allows your body to relax and release tension and stress. It is highly recommended for individuals who would like a deeper relaxation through warmth, or to warm up upper layers of tissue prior to working out stubborn muscle knots.
