Massage Treatments

Buccal Face Massage is also called Face lifting Massage or Sculptural Massage. Bucca means “cheek” in Latin.  The Buccal Massage is a relatively new technique developed to restore muscular facial tone.

There are many therapists and schools around the world have developed their own techniques for Buccal Massage, such as Joelle Ciocco (France), Yakov Gershkovich (Israel) and many others. I have travelled to Europe and Asia to learn some of them and have combined the best for the benefits of my clients.

The massage is partly performed from inside the mouth to get a better access to facial muscles (therapist wears sanitized gloves for that part).

The face is a complex mass of sinew and muscles, hidden beneath the skin. With time our facial muscles get lazy. Gravitationsunsugarbadhabitsstress, lack of rest and selfcare – everything we might experience every day – influence and pull down our muscles so they become sagged. Our other muscles do the opposite – they tense too much and might create for us certain faceexpression which we not always mean to have.

Aging is inevitable, although people try to endure it with plasticsurgeries and cosmeticinjectionsFacialmassage is the noninvasivehealthier, cheaper alternative way to restore facial contour and restrain wrinkles with less side effectsFace lifting massage relaxes the tensed muscles and facilitates lazy muscles so face looks “lifted”. 

Stimulating the face muscles with regular massage helps to bring oxygen to that area, which is a natural form of anti aging skin care in itself.

Facial massage can be firm, smooth or sculpt.  Sculpt massage is also called Face Lifting Massage or Buccal Massage. Bucca means “cheek” in Latin. The massage is partly performed from inside the mouth to get a better access to facial muscles(therapist wears gloves for that part). The buccal massage is a relatively new technique developed to restore muscular facialtone.

Facial massage benefits:

  • relaxes tight muscles (prevent the formation of wrinkles);
  • relieves the tension of the face;
  • activates blood circulation which helps the skin to be more flexible and look younger (healthy glow);
  • stimulates the lymph nodes (reduce swelling).

The face is less likely to fall into deep wrinkles or show signs of physical and/or emotional stress.

You enhance your vital organs health, which benefits your skin and muscles.

Face massage is based on pressure points techniques, gliding movements and is performed when client is lying down facing up.

For face massage we use an Australian made organic Ecobeauty cream (see more about the Ecobeauty cosmetics).

The seated massage is done with no oil, on top of clothes, on special massage chair if office space allows (Seated massage) or on normal office chair directly at the working desk (Roaming clinic massage). 

Length of Seated Corporate Massage per person can be from 5 to 15 minutes which means that within one hour 4 to 10 people can receive massage.

I have been doing seated massage for over three years now and have all the necessary equipment,  qualifications and insurance.

I’ve massaged staff in QBE, McDonalds, Flight Centre, First Colonial offices, in child and aged care environments and open for new business opportunities. Seated massage is great for aged care facilities: since there is no oil used for massage, the risks of oil spills and falls are eliminated.

Lomi Lomi is an indigenous Hawaiian healing practice which includes massage. ‘Lomi Lomi’ means ‘to rub or to knead’ in the Hawaiian (Polynesian) language and it is a beautiful form of body work which is energetically vibrant yet deeply relaxing. Lomi Lomi is also known as “loving hands”.

It is a unique full body oil based massage in which the practitioner uses hands and forearms in long fluid strokes of varying intensity and rhythm up, down and around the body. The massage has a unique flowing style, which is deep tissue in nature, working to nurture the body as well as to release tension and relieve strain. ‘Lomi Lomi’ also balances the mind emotionally thereby providing a safe space for you to empower yourself to deal effectively with life’s challenges.

Music is played during the massage and the practitioner may dance around the table using hula or tai chi style movements. This helps them to attune to the natural rhythms of your body and it also helps the practitioner to harmonise the rhythms that occur between a person’s body, mind and soul.

The massage works by stimulating the natural flow of energy within the body in order to bring about changes in the physical, emotional and spiritual areas. Stress and tension is released so that energy can flow freely once more. It is also deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Lomi Lomi is good for:

  • Detoxification and waste removal;

  • Improving the immune system;

  • Stimulating lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems;

  • Releasing muscle tension;

  • Bring a sense of peace, harmony and well being;

  • Improving flexibility;

  • Improving muscle tone.

It is excellent for people with conditions such as:

  • stress;

  • depression;

  • exhaustion;

  • confusion;

  • grief or loss;

  • physical discomfort or injuries.

Clients are encouraged to focus on their breath during the massage. Inhaling allows you to draw fresh energy and inspiration into yourself and exhaling allows you to expel tension and negative thoughts.

Relaxation massage (or Swedish massage) is a beautiful tool to achieve mindfulness.

Mindfulness is a state of mind achieved by focusing awareness on the present. It simply means to be here and now, at this current moment when past has gone and future hasn’t arrived.

Mindfulness brings us relieve from stress and anxiety, helps with self control and emotions regulation, enhances focus and attention and brings inner peace.

Relaxation massage involves smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax.

Benefits of relaxaion massage (that can last for several days after your treatment):

  • improvements to stress-related symptoms;

  • gentle boost to the immune system if you have treatments regularly;

  • improvements to the quality of sleep;

  • slowing heart rate;
  • increasing blood circulation;

  • stimulates the body’s lymphatic system, which carries away waste products;

  • improvements to skin tone and appearance;

  • reduction in muscle tension;

  • stimulation of endorphins, which create a sense of well-being and the body’s natural painkillers;

  • lowering blood pressure ;

  • improvements to more regular bowel movements;

  •  

In a relaxation massage, the therapist won’t push your limits in order to get the muscle to release. In a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out chronic underlying muscle tension – the adhesions or “knots” and muscle restrictions in the muscle tissue. That’s because deep tissue work can be uncomfortable, and during a relaxation massage you just want to drift away and feel good. You might even fall asleep!

It’s a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down. Relaxation massage is also good for someone who get massage as a special treat once a year.

Cupping therapy is increasingly being used in weight reduction and the removal of cellulite. Many celebrities are now talking about the fascinating effects of the treatment that is a form of deep-tissue, non-invasive healing therapy. In today’s times, cupping therapy is performed by using glass or medical-grade silicone cup that the user pushes on for suction much like an everyday suction cup. The user simply glides these cups across the target area.

Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is mainly caused because of a genetic condition which causes fluid retention, an inefficient lymphatic drainage system and weak veins that result in ineffective blood circulation. Hormonal imbalances can also cause the development of more fat cells. These factors result in the fat cells lying under the skin converting into cellulite. This cellulite pushes up the cords connecting the skin to the underlying muscle and creates the ungainly appearance of the dimpled, orange peel look on the skin that is a sign of cellulite.

How Cupping Therapy Works

When suction is applied on the skin, the reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Since cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. Cupping is also known to ease the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance.

Cupping for Spot Reduction

While conventional weight loss methods do not work on specifically targeted areas of the body, cupping is known to help in spot reduction as well. Patients can request treatment to remove sagging buttocks, saddlebags, flabby inner thighs and any other love handles. Cups are simply applied on the areas of the patient’s body that need treatment.

Forms of Cupping Therapy Used

There are two forms of Cupping Therapy: dry cupping and gliding cupping also known as running cupping or massage cupping can also be used.

The gliding cupping therapist applies oil on the patient’s skin before causing suction. Once the proper suction is created, the healer moves the cup over the affected areas of the body to relax the tissues and induce the release of fat and toxins that are ultimately expelled from the body naturally.

Dry cupping leaves marks because little papers are set on fire under glass cups to create suction as they sit on your back. While there’s suction with cupping massage, it doesn’t leave a mark because the cups continue to move.

Additional Advantages of Cupping

Since each cupping session can be customized for maximum effect on every individual patient, the therapy provides many other positives. Patients have reported the detoxification of the body, a firmer, tighter appearance of the skin, and removal of stretch marks, acne and scars. The body is more shapely and better blood circulation results in the appearance of a healthier looking skin.

Cupping therapy sessions are most effective when performed by an expert therapist. To reduce the redness caused by the cupping, healers might also perform massage therapy using essential oils and hydration.
