Zuma Healths Relaxation Massage is designed to let your body unwind, let your stresses dissolve, let your breath slow down, let your mind quieten and your natural state of grace emerge. It is in this place of quiet grace that struggle, control and forced will, step aside and allow natural healing to occur. This is done by our massage therapist using manual therapy techniques that includes holding, moving, and applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia in order to improve overall wellbeing and health.
Remedial Massage can be less relaxing at the time, but the after effects of relieving strains and injuries can make comfort and healing more possible. Remedial techniques are usually covered by private health insurance, if you are covered for extras.
