Lymphatic Drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.
The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions and even old age can cause lymph fluid to build up. This leads to painful joints due to hydrostatic pressure. Normally, muscle contractions help facilitate movement of fluid from the legs. When you have tight muscles or weakened veins, this process is hindered. The primary sign of lymphatic back up is called pitting edema, which is performed by pressing on the lower shin bone. If a pit forms and stays for longer than 5 seconds, you have water retention.

Pre / Post Natal
Aches and pains during pregnancy are part and parcel of joy during pregnancy. If you’re in your second trimester, there’s a good chance your hips or back are starting to feel the strain. A pregnancy massage is designed to loosen those hip flexors and SI joints to make it more comfortable to carry. In addition, studies show a decrease in breech cases when everything can move properly!
Deep Tissue Massage
A Deep Tissue massage is a longer process of getting the muscles to relax so the massage therapist can get to the lower layer of connective tissue. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury, and reduce muscle tension.

Elena's Add ons:
Hand/ Foot Reflexology - Add On
The benefits of reflexology may include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increase energy, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, and eliminate toxins from the body. Moreover, it might help stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, and treat urinary tract conditions. This type of massage may also speed up recovery after an injury or surgery, reduce sleep disorders, and relieve depression and pain.
Sports Stretching- Add on
This technique is designed to assist patients with stretching by gently pulling on joints while moving them into different positions. Even if you’re not an athlete, a treatment focused on strictly stretching does wonders for achy joints and tight muscles. Additionally, these sessions do not require the removal of any clothing.
Cupping Therapy -Add On
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involved placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction facilitates healing by increasing blood flow and decreases stagnation in the muscles and fascia. The more stagnation present, the darker red the area will get.
