While most types of massage can provide the same benefits, each type targets a different need and offers a unique benefit.
At Rhemedy by Rhed in West Village and Edgewater, we offer a variety of therapeutic massage treatments and services that can help you get the benefits you seek. From detox massage to massage cupping, we offer a variety of unique massage types that can help you relax and offer you different benefits. In this blog, we are going to go over some of the different types of massage and treatments we offer and how they can benefit you!
A detox massage is a form of deep tissue massage therapy that targets muscle tissue and the lymphatic system. The main purpose of a detox massage is to remove toxins from the body. Our body brings in toxins daily, from pesticides, additives, junk food, and other environmental factors. These toxins can affect your overall health and wellbeing. A detox massage stimulates key areas of waste removal, increases lymphatic flow, and opens skin pores to allow for a beneficial detox. We use custom oil blends as well to help you relax and boost the detox. This massage can help rid the toxins in your body, allowing you to feel healthier and happier. Our detox massage also offers the benefits that many other massage types offer including increased circulation, relaxed muscles, and reduced stress.
Massage Cupping Therapy
Our massage cupping therapy is similar to a deep tissue massage but uses the cupping technique to help provide more benefits. Cupping therapy has become popular in recent years, but it is actually an ancient form of alternative medicine. This treatment uses cups and ancient techniques to create suction and negative pressure on the skin. This helps soften tight muscles, lift connective tissue, increase blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins. This type of massage can help with inflammation, relaxation, and pain. This is a great massage type for athletes and those with sore muscles.
Thai massage, also known as Thai yoga, is a unique treatment that offers many benefits. This method of massage is used to balance sen lines, which are the pathways in which prana, or energy flows. This unique massage type offers very similar benefits to other massage types, including reduced stress, increased energy, and a boost in circulation, but the main benefits are that it can help balance your energy and promotes lengthening. This treatment includes rocking finger and palm pressure, positional stretches, and mindful meditation. After this treatment, you will feel refreshed and at peace.
Our deep tissue massage, called Rhemedy Ritual®, uses a combination of long Swedish strokes, myofascial, and deep massage techniques. This type of massage focuses on the areas of your body that hold the most tension to help relieve that tension. We also incorporate Shiatsu point holding, Thai yoga stretching, and other techniques to balance and elongate your muscles. This message type can help to rescue stress, soothe sore muscles, and balance your energy. If you are looking for a massage that does it all, this is a great option and can help you feel your best.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is another popular and beneficial technique. This method of massage uses heated basalt stones and cooled marble slabs that are positioned and glided on your body, providing thermotherapy and allowing for chakra balancing. We use finger-shaped stones to press lightly into marma points, which as energy points on the body, to clear blockage. This type of massage helps to reduce inflammation, release deep tissue, and focus on the first and second chakras.
