Okay, let’s get nerdy. What is this lymphatic massage and what does it do? The Lymphatic Massage is a specialty type of massage that is not really discussed but has amazing healing qualities. Only the best and knowledgeable Licensed Massage Therapists are skilled enough in this style of massage. Believe it or not, there is a lot of science behind this massage due to its healing qualities. The lymphatic system is your body’s waste removal system that flows in its own, separate system, so as to not touch the good and healthy blood. The lymphatic picks up old, worn out cells, foreign pathogens, extra fluid, etc in the body to be destroyed and “thrown out” as needed. However, after surgery or during illness, this system gets inflamed and/or backed up. You can visibly see the lymphatic system struggling when you see swelling after surgery — such as when a cosmetic plastic surgeon completes a tummy tuck or liposuction. A sluggish, stopped up, and toxic lymphatic system means continued inflammation and pain, and a longer recovery time.
Deep Tissue Massage
The Deep Tissue Massage is a firmer, deeper, and more powerful massage. Unlike the Swedish Massage, the techniques used for deep tissue rejuvenation include slow and precise strokes, with intense pressure that aims to relieve severe tension in the muscles. Clients go for this massage if they want the treatment to penetrate the tissue underneath the layers of superficial muscles, breaking down muscle “knots” or adhesions.
The Deep Tissue Massage is often endorsed to clients who experience soreness and consistent severe pain in both small and large muscle groups. Those who may consider this style of massage are athletes who train rigorously, professionals who work in high stress or high demand careers, and those who are bigger/taller in stature due to the chronic, day-to-day tension on the musculoskeletal frame. So if you dare to try an hour and a half of power muscle diffusion, then alllow our licensed massage therapists to provide you a soothing and tension-releasing full-body deep tissue massage – give us a call today.
You will surely turn into a believer once you try Serenity’s Stone Massage. It is our signature service as well as a client favorite. This massage follows the same principles of the Swedish Massage but with a bonus: stones. Heated stones help achieve deep, lasting relaxation. The stones are positioned on the parts of the client’s body where the pain is dominant. The stones are water heated to a temperature slightly hotter than your dishes out of the dishwasher. But the secret to keeping these stones emitting heat is their shape. Once warmed your therapist will apply the heated stones onto targeted chakra areas on your body, enhancing the sensations of peace and relaxation, while maximizing the therapeutic benefits of your massage
A Reflexology massage (aka foot massage), also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. A Reflexology massage is based off the belief that practitioners can relieve stress and pain in other parts of the body through the manipulation of the feet. One claimed explanation is that the pressure received in the feet may send signals that ‘balance’ the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce stress and pain. It’s more than just a foot massage in West Palm Beach!
The Swedish Massage is the most famous type of massage therapy and a favorite among massage enthusiasts and newbies alike. The Swedish Massage is straightforward and simple, involving long, concentrated, and fluid strokes on the muscles and tissues. Our therapists apply pressure to strained areas with intensities that vary from light to medium or hard styles. It’s also considered one of the most relaxing massages to date – our clients love it. This treatment is also known to boost the immune system, helping the body fight colds and the flu.
