RELAXATION & STRESS MANAGEMENT
In today’s modern fast-paced society it can be difficult to find time to rest and relax. Relaxation is an essential part of healthy living and being able to calmly deal with the stress placed on your body and mind. I have a few treatment options that have the ability to help you manage your stress, improve sleep, promote muscle relaxation, lower blood pressure and soothe away any anxiety and depression.
Relaxation massage is the perfect way to de-stress and unwind, inspired by Swedish massage techniques designed to calm the central nervous system and soothe away any unwanted stress, anxiety and muscle tension brought upon by the hectic modern-day lifestyle.
Hot stone is an ancient practice used for over 2000 years, smooth basalt stones are warmed to perfection to create a soothing and calming effect. My hot stone treatment uses the stones in a more therapeutic manner to ease away muscle tension while you are in a state of deep relaxation.
Pregnancy massage holds benefits to the mother and her beautiful child. At a time of transformation physically and emotionally a lot of strain is placed on the mother's body and mind. As the pregnancy progresses the body must adjust in order to carry the extra weight. This results in a shift in posture, placing strain on your weight-bearing joints. An effective way to help balance the body and relieve physical and mental fatigue is through pregnancy massage. At Elite, I focus the session on the specific needs of the mother to help relieve stress and anxiety, back and joint pain, sciatica and much more. A number of soft pillows and bolsters are used to ensure the mother is extremely comfortable throughout the session.
Please note: At Elite massage, pregnancy massage during the first trimester is perfectly fine for all healthy mothers. Session times may be shortened to ensure safety for yourself and your child. Please contact Josip if you have any questions.
