DeepFeet SARGA Floor Bodywork
Warm Bamboo Massage
SARGA bodywork is another productive, deep tissue barefoot massage that delivers an effective and therapeutic Ashiatsu floor massage treatment. The word Sarga is defined in Spanish, meaning a woven tapestry from many threads, and in Sanskrit, the word refers to action of energy. Sarga utilizes the use of a fabric strap fastened to a massage table to deliver therapeutic myofascial and deep tissue strokes + compressions. This fabric strap is used by practitioners for stability while adding tensional and gravitational force to provide an exceptional massage experience.

massage techniques, gravity and consistent soothing strokes to provide a
luxurious therapeutic massage. Bars are used to stabilize practitioners
balance and help support body weight for appropriate pressure. You'll

Ashi~Thai is similar to Ashiatsu bodywork. The therapist uses the overhead bar system as the client receives all the amazing benefits. However, Ashi~Thai is a combination of stretching, compression work and movement with a gentle and rhythmic flow. Ashi~Thai massage is done fully clothed for a stand alone treatment or may be incorporated into an Ashiatsu fusion massage session.

Simple and practical with significant results, well controlled Cupping Therapy is a healing art known as one of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies. Creating a reverse massage with use of concentrated suction, cups are applied as tools to draw tissue away creating space for oxygen, living cells and nutrients needed for healing, By stimulating the tissue through cupping, stagnation of blood is unblocked. This modality offers both stationary and gliding (when appropriate) cupping for an effective treatment. Please note when discoloration appears on the skin, it is a result of having internal unwanted toxins pulled up to the surface. These marks are harmless and will fade within a few days. Cupping may be added to your massage therapy service or provided as a stand alone treatment.
