Massages such as Deep Tissue, Reiki, Lymphatic Drainage, Swedish, Shiatsu and Reflexology are commonly offered at Med Spas in New York City.

  • Shiatsu Massage – This Japanese style of massage consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. This type if massage is very effective for overall circulation stimulation and results in dramatic pain relief.
  • Swedish Massage – Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes by rubbing the muscles in the direction of blood returning to the heart. This type of massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
  • Reflexology Massage – Also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine or pseudoscience involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.
  • Reiki Massage – Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
  • Deep Tissue Massage – It is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. It breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body.
