Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the skin. It feels different from massage therapy. It releases muscular tension, stress and promotes the circulation of blood and Chi. It uses the power of healing touch instead of needles, as in acupuncture. Its many benefits include pain and stress relief. It can improve the quality of sleep and digestion.
Shiatsu is the modern Japanese form of acupressure. This massage technique focuses on unblocking the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs. It promotes self-healing and adaptation to changes. Zen Shiatsu helps figure out the root cause of pain and issues.
Tui Na has been practiced in China for over 5000 years. It involves a wide range of massage techniques, including pushing, grasping, pressing, rubbing, rolling, tapping, stretching, kneading. They stimulate acupoints and are applied to muscle or soft tissue at specific body locations. They help clear energy blocks along specific meridians associated with particular conditions.
Thai Massage is traditionally performed on the floor, but Joëlle adapted it to the table. Shiatsu stimulates the meridians, Thai Massage stretches them. It is very dynamic and is excellent for your joints, and your overall flexibility. It is both relaxing and energizing.
Sports massage is a Western massage therapy technique used to prevent injuries, or helps recover from them. It can also help remove lactic acid. Joëlle has worked with a number of runners and helped them prepare for a Marathon.
Deep tissue massage helps release chronic muscle tension.
"Joëlle listens, both to my words and my body. She combines what I tell her with her excellent instincts for where my pain is and what will bring relief. Sometimes she'll do something that seems counterintuitive; I've finally learned to stop being amazed when it works. I can still feel the positive effects of her work days later. I depend on her to help me find my balance!"
