Today our body takes on a lot of stress; it can be from work (sitting for long hours or it may even be physically demanding), home life, accidents, injuries, or even driving are just a few stressors.

 

At Parikrama, we take the clinical approach to deep tissue.  Deep Tissue massage will not only help treat muscle pain, soreness, & injuries, it can help lower blood pressure, detox, & cleanse by expelling toxins & waste.

 

In your first session, we will create  an individual treatment plan. A thorough intake will be taken which will include many therapeutic techniques as well as an orthopedic assessment if needed to bring your body back in line with your mind & spirit.

​Maternity massage uses specially designed massage tables, cushions, and side-lying postures to addresses the special needs of mothers-to-be.

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction may occur from many factors:

  • Injury - motor vehicle accident, dental work, direct impact

  • Posture

  • Clenching teeth

  • Stress

  • Misalignment of jaw

  • Chewing gum

TMJ can cause severe pain, headaches, sleepless nights, and others.

There are different types of treatment such as botox to help relieve the pain. Massage treatment targets the specific muscles through intra oral relieving the tension allowing the joint to begin functioning the way it is meant to. Combining massage and appropriate exercises will help speed the healing process. 

Relaxation massage enhances your well being by:

  • reducing anxiety levels from reaching calmer thinking & creativity

  • relieves mental stress by improving awareness of the mind & body connection

  • reducing edema, pain perception, muscle hypertonicity & pain

  • decreasing sympathetic nervous system firing

  • increase circulation & muscle tone

Myofascial Release

First, what is fascia?

 

Fascia is the band or sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, & separates muscles & other internal organs. Fascia contains movement, pressure & vibration, chemical balance, & pain.

Damage to fascia can be from trauma, surgery, improper hydration, posture, lack of movement, & stress.

Fascia is the first on the line & yet is rarely ever treated. Fascia will be so tight, it will hinder the pliability of the muscles. Through slow techniques, the fascia can be released allowing muscles to heal, become pliable, & work in unison.

Cupping

Cupping began as a traditional Chinese technique for pain relief & relaxation. The vacuum draws superficial tissue perpendicular to the skin, pulling tissue apart allowing fascia to release. Breaking up thick hard fascia will increase your range of motion & allowing tissue to develop new blood flow & release ant-inflammatory chemicals to the region.

 

Some of the conditions that respond to this treatment: 

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Scoliosis

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Bursitis/tendonitis

  • Athletic stress &injury

  • Tension headaches/sinusitis/migraine

  • Carpal tunnel

  • Arthritis

  • Chronic pain/ poor circulation

  • Sciatica

  • Low back pain

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage encourages lymph flow, decreases pain perception, & reduces formation of scar tissue. 

 

This is an excellent treatment for those with cancer or in remission, lymphatic blockages, edema, or surgery.

Body Polish

Getting ready for summer or love to maintain your skin throughout winter? What better way than to keep those pesky dry & dead skin cells off your soft skin.

Body polish takes off dry & dead skin cells, deep cleans pores, brightens skin, & increases blood & lymphatic flow.

Body Wraps

There are two different styles of body wraps to choose from. Both offer two different therapeutic results.

  1. Mud Wraps: In general, mud wraps fortify the skin & prevent premature aging as it stimulates circulation & lymphatic flow. Depending on the mud you choose, will determine the unique benefits of the treatment.

  2. Hot & Cold Herbal Wrap: First you will experience a decrease in blood circulation while you lay in a cool wrap followed by an increase in blood circulation from a hot wrap. This technique creates a flushing effect diffused with herbs to begin your healing process.
