Qualified Avalon Massage & Health Spa massage therapists serving Windermere and the surrounding area, offer Swedish massage, (also known as relaxation massage) that incorporates several therapeutic techniques adapted to your individual needs. From light, to moderate or deep pressure, Swedish massage techniques can be targeted to provide a range of solutions that include recovery from injury, to relaxation and stress reduction.
Deep Tissue Massage
Avalon Massage & Health Spa massage therapists perform deep tissue massage by concentrating on the deeper layers of the body’s soft tissue to release persistent pain and tension patterns. Slow and methodical strokes are applied to the top layers of affected areas in order to penetrate to deeper muscle layers and achieve lasting relief from chronic pain for our Orlando clients.
The word “Shiatsu” translates to “finger pressure” in Japanese. Avalon Massage & Health Spa massage therapists apply light, non-invasive pressure to particular acupuncture points to relieve sore and stiff muscles, loosen tension and improve circulation for our Kissimmee clients.
Lomi Lomi Massage
Typically, massage therapists begin a lomi lomi session by placing their hands gently on you and remaining still for a few moments. They may ask you to breathe deeply to help you relax. A traditional practitioner may incorporate other rituals, such as chants and music. The physical benefits of this massage are the same as other types of massage in terms of relaxing muscles, promoting circulation and releasing blocked energy. The difference lies in the Hawaiian traditions woven into the massage, including the belief that "loving hands" help you release not only physical tension but also mental, emotional and spiritual blockages.
