For some it's a facial and for others's a massage, regardless knowing your options is an essential part of the experience. Here Haute Beauty experts at Xanadu Med Spa review the menu items available to all, specifically the massages.

A massage is valuable for its ability to relax, detoxify and de-stress the body. At Xanadu Med Spa the massage therapies are private and nurturing, using tranquil lighting and a relaxing atmosphere to add to your sensory experience. Most of the time, one would consider massage therapy to be all about pampering when in fact it actually has important health benefits. Here are the 11 massage options Xanadu provides for both relaxing and clinical outcomes:

Therapeutic Massage Therapy Options

Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage. It is designed to balance and soothe, relieving tension and stimulating circulation in the body.

Therapeutic Massage describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder or lower back pain.

Ashiatsu Massage is a form of Japanese bodywork. It involves the use of deep strokes from the therapists' feet rather than using hands or arms.

Prenatal Massage (13 weeks or more) aids in relieving swelling and muscle tension due to pregnancy.

Deep Tissue Massage applies firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia.

Trigger Point Massage works out the sore, painful spots, also called knots that are in our muscles. The treatment is designed to alleviate the source of pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.

Hot Stone & Lava Shell Massage is heat treatment. Using hot stones or lava shells, the massage therapist can use them as a tool to nourish the tissues, release accumulated waste held in muscle tension and melt away stress.

Aromatherapy Massage is massage therapy with the added aroma of essential oils to address specific needs. These oils can be used topically or diffused, which enhances the experience.

AromaTouch Massage is similar to the Aromatherapy massage but it combines the use of therapeutic grade essential oils and the power of human touch.

Couples Massage can be done with any of the above massages at the foundation. It is important to note that the treatment will not be performed in the same room as your partner.
