Swedish Massage (Relaxation Massage)
Swedish Massage is one of the most common and best-known type of massages in the West, which uses strokes called effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fibre) and vibration/shaking movements. Those are used to warm up and work the muscle tissue, releasing tension and breaking up muscle "knots".
Swedish massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension,
If it's your first time to receive a massage or you can not tolerate any pressure or momentary discomfort, then this would be best option for you.
Deep Tissue Massage (Raynor Massage)
Raynor Massage is a system of bodywork developed by international Naturopath, Brandon Raynor. It covers not just the muscle, but also the skeletal system and the subtle energy systems of the body.
The massage works on a deep physical level as well as a deep emotional level. Our emphasis on deep feet and hand massage means that this massage penetrates to the deepest layers of tension and stress often caused by deep physical or emotional imbalances from the past.
Raynor Massage benefits anyone regardless of age and fitness level and is very effective in removing the normal aches and pains that have such an impact on our daily lives. Back, neck and shoulder pain, in particular, responds well to this treatment.

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.The theory is that following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of "imbalance", and that vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself.

Reiki is a hands-on Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to use/receive Reiki.
