Circulatory Massage:

Also referred to as a Swedish Massage, a Circulatory Massage is the most requested modality at Day Spas.  It involves using a massage oil to perform a variety of strokes to relax and increase circulation in the body. Techniques learned include gliding (Effleurage), kneading (Petrissage), and cross-fi

ber friction (Fanning). Special focus is given to proper body mechanics and “draping” techniques. Done properly, Circulatory Massage promotes relaxation, relieves pain, and facilitates a variety of other health benefits.

Healing Hands’ Faculty strives to provide students with the most comprehensive, well-rounded education possible.  That’s why the curriculum includes over 40 Massage and Holistic Health Courses to choose from.  Some of the most popular modalities include Deep-tissue, Sports, and Shiatsu.  Integrative therapies like Hot Stone, Reflexology, Trigger Point,  and TuiNa (Acupressure) are also available.
