Heated Flax Pillow Massage is a type of thermal therapy bodywork in which the massage therapist works "through" heated flax pillows to achieve myofascial release and pain management. The massage generally includes gentle stretching, relaxing slow strokes, and deep compression. The heat exuded from the flax pillows allows the therapist to work deeper into the muscle tissue to decrease pain sensations to the brain, accelerate healing, support immune system health, improve mobility, flexibility, and comfort. Thermal therapy is typically used to assist with arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, computer strain, Fibromyalgia, frozen shoulder, headaches, hip and sciatica pain, low back pain, mid back and shoulder pain, shin splints, and more.
This massage is performed on a massage table with the guest fulling clothed, so it is also great for anyone who has limited mobility or modesty concerns. Please wear comfortable loose fitting or "yoga" type clothing.
