DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Hot stone massage uses smooth, heated stones to relieve stiffness and soreness, and to restore energy to aching muscles and joints. Warmed stones encourage the exchange of blood and lymph circulation throughout the body, and provide soothing and healing heat for deep-tissue work.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a very specialized form of massage therapy. It's the use of static pressure on specific trigger points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body to balance the muscular system with the nervous system. When our bodies are subject to trauma, such as an accident, injury, prolonged stress or bad posture, the nerves begin to speed up their transmission and fire more rapidly. This process makes the body vulnerable to pain, dysfunction and further injury. NMT is highly beneficial in re-stabilizing the neurological activity between the muscular and nervous system, which is necessary to maintain normal function and overall health of our body.
Athletes of all kinds who are looking to improve their performance are candidates for a sports massage. Sports massage will help release any built up tension in the overworked muscles so that blood and oxygen can return to the muscle and effectively promote muscle repair. Athletes commonly overuse their muscles, causing strain, tears and imbalances in the soft muscle tissues. It's also common that athletes ignore aches and pains until they turn into serious injuries. The more a sports injury is ignored; the more susceptible it becomes to further strain and injury. Sports massages, if received as part of a sports program, can help an athlete prevent injury due to overuse
A reflexology massage focus solely on your hands and feet. This type of massage can lead to an endorphin release and decreased stress levels. Reflexology is an ancient healing art based on the principles that there are reflexes in the hands and feet that correspond to every part, organ and gland in your body. During a reflexology massage, your therapist will ask you very specific questions to determine your present condition so they can apply pressure according to a reflexology map.
Prenatal massages can reduce pregnancy discomfort and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both the mother and the fetus. Massages can calm many of the aches and pains associated with pregnancy such as sciatica, swelling, back and neck pain and upset stomach. They can also improve physical discomfort by encouraging circulation and by stretching the muscles and joints to their full range of motion to improve skin elasticity and body tone. Studies show that pregnant mothers who receive regular prenatal massages are more at ease - furthermore relaxing the fetus inside the womb.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing used to relax the body and mind. It aids in reducing pain and stress by triggering the body's natural healing response.
RAINDROP THERAPY MASSAGE
Raindrop therapy massage is a full body massage that incorporates the raindrop oils and techniques into a 90 minute massage session. Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of essential oils that are immune enhancing, support the body's natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous and other body systems. These oils, which are high in antioxidants, are also mood elevating and antiseptic, creating an unfavorable environment for harmful viruses and bacteria that can hibernate in the body. Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, help you relax, help manage stress and frustration and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.
I arranged for a couple’s massage for my boyfriend’s birthday weekend. Both ladies did an amazing job. We felt like feathers after our session. It was well needed for the both of us. We ended up booking a Valentine’s couple massage package right after our session. We look forward to seeing them once a month!
My girlfriend and I were on vacation in New Orleans coming from Cincinnati. Before the trip, she surprised me with the idea of having professional massages because we work hard at our respected professions. We never had a massage done by professional massage therapists. Based on the reviews, Body Mechanix was the best choice. Everyone was professional, kind, caring, and knowledgeable from start to finish. The massages that we had left us floating, relaxed, and energetic throughout the day and night while we had fun on French Quarter. It was excellent. Thank You so much for a great experience.
I woke up a few days earlier with terrible pain in my lower back and radiating down my left leg. I went to my physical therapist who did dry needling, exercises and icing it but it only helped a little. I called Body Mechanix Massage and Wellness and they got me in right away and did a deep muscle massage on my back. The majority of the pain left right away and the rest left after a few days. I am eternally grateful.
