Therapeutic Massage

 

Therapeutic massage is a very useful form of treatment in the field of physical therapy. It is of positive value in building and maintaining health and has been used since ancient times as a means to promote a general sense of well being. Massage increases circulation of blood and lymph, lowers blood pressure, relaxes muscles and relieves tension. Massage also prevents and relieves stiffness and soreness of muscles, improves muscle tone, relieves mental and physical fatigue and generally relaxes and rejuvenates all the systems of the body. The overall effects of massage--as a promoter of health and well being are the same today as in ancient times.

Scheduling Massage Appointments

Since Eureka Springs can be a very busy little town it is best to call and schedule your massage appointments right after you have reserved your lodging. In that way, you are more likely to be assured of the day and time that work best for you.

First Massage?

If you have never had a massage before, you might be wondering what to expect. From our reception room you will be taken to your treatment room. The massage table is similar to a chiropractic table because you will be able to lie face down, and breathe comfortably, with your face and forehead resting in a cushioned face cradle. The therapist will leave you alone while you undress to your comfort level. In order to massage the back well, it is better for bras to be removed. Also jewelry such as necklaces or long earrings are usually removed by the client so the therapist can effectively massage the neck area.

You will lie on the table either face up or face down and cover yourself with the top sheet and blanket (in cold weather). (Our tables are heated in cold weather).

The therapist will give you plenty of time to get
ready for your massage and will knock on the door before entering. You will always be modestly draped during your session. During a one hour massage the therapist will work on your back and shoulders, legs, feet, hands, arms and neck. If you have scheduled a 30 minute massage, the areas addressed are usually the neck, back, shoulders and feet. Some clients prefer to have their hands massaged, instead of their feet, during a 30 minute session.

We use organic grape seed oil and lotion that contains olive and aloe. We also use essential oils, unless the client prefers none to be used. (There is no charge for the use of essential oils).

Reiki

Reiki is a gentle light touch (client is fully clothed) technique that allows the client to achieve a deep state of relaxation and feeling of well being as tensions dissolve.

Reiki is the name of the ancient healing energies discovered in the early 1900's in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui.

It is a natural method of hands-on healing. The
Japanese word, "Reiki", which signifies the Universal Life Energy that both surrounds and is contained within all living matter, is composed of two kanji Essence of Life, denotes the Universal Life Force that creates, surrounds, and sustains all matter.

Ki (Chinese chi) denotes the individual aspect of that Life Energy, the Inner Source or personalized form of the Universal Life Force that both creates and sustains every individual being.

Taken together these letters are a perfect
description of the Reiki healing system and process whereby a Reiki Practitioner acts as an intermediary to join the Universal Life Force (Rei) with an individual's life force (Ki) to return the ailing body to energetic balance and harmony, thus activating the body's enormous power to rejuvenate and heal.

Reiki is not a religion. People of all ages, all religions, all belief systems, even die-hard skeptics and those with no belief systems at all have become Reiki practitioners. Reiki as Dr. Usui received it and passed it to the world is uniquely suited to modern--to western--sensibilities: it is deeply spiritual yet outside of all religion. It is easy to learn, simple to use, and effective. It is a system of healing for the twenty-first century and beyond.

Some clients will schedule an appointment for just a reiki session and some will request that reiki be added at the end of their massage treatment.
