Single Person Massage
Our signature 60 minute Angelito massage uses a unique combination of techniques that are relaxing and energizing.
This full body massage also reduces aches and pains; it is applied to the arms, hands, legs, feet, back, shoulders as well as skull, neck and ears.
This is the unique combination of techniques used in the Angelito massage:
Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue. The effects vary depending on the depth, rate and rhythm of the technique.
The effleurage technique increases circulation, reduces edema (inflation), decreases sympathetic nervous system firing* and reduces pain.
(Sympathetic nervous system firing is the “fight or flight syndrome” – the stress response that leaves people feeling energy depleted.)
Petrissage: This is a squeezing, rolling and kneading technique that loosens your muscle fiber.
Tapotement: This short, alternating tap with cupped hands loosens mucus in clients with respiratory conditions, increases local circulation, estimates and decreases sympathetic nervous system firing.
Vibration: In this unique Angelito massage technique, fingertips, hands and palms are moved in a circular movement to create vibrational energy in the area of body being massaged; it also loosens mucus present in respiratory conditions.
