At Holistic Health Care We Offer Many Modalities (forms) of Massage, Bodywork and Energetic Healing.
Often it is beneficial to blend several. You will also find that one Therapist may be more in tune with you than another.
We are trained and experienced in discovering with you the combination to best enhance your well-being with a holistic approach that addresses.
Our clinic has five rooms, four with tables and one is a Japanese style tatami room for mat work
such as therapeutic stretching, Thai Massage, and Korean Martial Therapy (Hwal Bup Do).
One of the table rooms has an electric lift table that is ADA compliant.
This allows easy transfer from a wheelchair as our facility is wheelchair accessible.
We also have chair massage in the waiting area. This is excellent for quick
relief of neck and shoulder pain
when you don't have time for a full massage or bodywork.
Two Foot Massage Sofas are available for Chinese foot massage with Reflexology and a Foot Bath.
Massage is the use of oil on the skin using various styles of hand strokes to aid circulation and stretch the fascia. It orginated in the ancient Greco-Judaic world. The word massage comes from the hebrew word mashiach משיח meaning to anoint with oil. During the middle ages it was shunned by the Catholic church as erotic. It wasn't until the 19th century that the method used by Hippocrates regained its position as a healing art. In the U.S it is usually called Swedish Massage but in Europe it is referred to as Classic Massage. Aromatherapy is part of the massage system and many recipes for oil blends are found in the bible.
Bodywork is much different as it is usually done without oil or with very little. There are many forms of bodywork, mostly originating in Asia. These use stretch, acupoints, pressure, scraping and are based on Asian medicine that recognizes an energetic system in the body. Bodywork can be performed on a mat, in a chair or on a table. The client may be clothed or unclothed depending on the modality. This flexibility makes it ideal for first response treatment at an accident scene and for those too modest to be comfortable worked on unclothed. Modalities we perform of this type are KMT, Thai Massage, Acupressure, Cupping, Guasha, Reflexology, Shiatsu........ The list of modalities our therapists are skilled in is long and varied.
Recently there have been many new modalities developed that blend or reinterpret the traditional ones. Many have brought modern medical science into play to enhance the effectiveness of the traditional forms.
This I have done in creating Enlightened Therapeutic Touch. I utilize the stretch, leverage, pressure & energetic techniques of Asian modalities such as KMT & Thai Massage with modern scientific anatomy and physiology. Touch of Jade Lymphatic Therapy is very effective. It utilizes Chinese Jade Rollers and the knowledge of modern physiology and anatomy.
