Great Barrington Mass Wellness GB

Integrative

Originally introduced to the United States in 1858 as the “Swedish Movement Cure,” this technique employs oil or lotion on the skin in a circulatory manner to relax and release toxins from the muscles and return blood flow toward the heart. It keeps tendons and ligaments supple and pliable while manipulating, organizing, and aligning layers of skin and fascia. Firm, gentle pressure using stroking, kneading, friction, vibration, soft shaking, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, moderate range of motion stretches, lymphatic drainage and energy work are a collection of modern techniques employed in this modality, bringing about holistic benefits for the body and mind.

This is WellnessGB signature massage.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

This gentle and systematic modality involves slow pumping of lymphatic fluids along specific pathways in the body to create a vacuum effect, releasing waste products, cellular debris, bacteria, and unwanted proteins so the lymph can effectively drain through proper channels. Each session begins with a specific protocol of light massage on the surface of the skin of the neck and then concentrates on specific areas of the body where there is pronounced swelling. Lymphatic drainage is very gentle, not painful, without a stimulating effect. Recommended for lymphedema clients, reducing pain from cosmetic surgery, and/or for seasonal changes to charge up the immune system. Great for lethargy and fatigue syndromes, and those wishing a gentler massage.
