Swedish Massage Therapy

Swedish massage is considered to be the perfect balance of therapy and relaxation. It is universally popular for its gentle yet effective results and benefits. A massage therapist will rub the skin with massage oil and perform long flowing strokes to encourage gradual break up of muscle “knots” and tissues.

Myofascial Release Therapy Massage
Chronic inflammation and muscular pain? Fibromyalgia or chronic migraines located in the neck/shoulders? Myofascial Release Therapy is an amazing massage technique that helps to target trigger points in the body, releasing stress and pain by using special massage tools. Using the myofascial release tools over portions of your body the therapist will undo the tightness and pressure caused by the inflamed tissue. Thus allowing the tissue to become more flexible and relaxed, eliminating pain. A life-changing therapy with benefits that increase with regular sessions.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy
The massage therapist places heated smooth, flat Basalt stones on key points of the body and waits a few minutes for iron ions from the stones to warm up the muscles. Once the muscles have been warmed up and relaxed, the massage therapist then rubs essential oils into the skin and further continues manipulating back muscles by performing various hot stone techniques including more relaxed/deeper pressure. This unique therapy is very beneficial for guests who tend to feel chilly or have cold feet. It encourages deep relaxation of guest’s muscles with maximum comfort.

Shiatsu Massage Therapy
Shiatsu Massage Therapy comes from ancient Japan and focuses on restoring the healthy flow of energy throughout the body. It is a method of elbow pressure that stimulates energy points along the body. The balancing of energy flow stimulates the body’s ability to heal and maintain itself. It is a holistic treatment that lowers blood pressure, and improves circulation. The elbow pressure is especially beneficial for relaxing contracted muscles and increasing blood flow to those areas.

Prenatal Massage Therapy
Prenatal massage is relaxing and soothing in its nature. It promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves fatigued back and leg muscles in mothers-to-be. This massage is especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in the belly puts a strain on the mother's back. This massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic system, the primary function of which is to transport white blood cells through the blood stream into the bones and help get rid of toxins, waste, and other unwanted elements. The gentle strokes also help stabilize hormone levels and relieve nervous tension throughout the body. We offer the best prenatal massage therapy in Philadelphia!

Reflexology is a healing application of massage and pressure to a specific part of the body, i.e. the feet, by rubbing in essential oils. It is an ancient therapy that promotes relaxation, improves circulation and encourages the body to heal itself through its energetic pathways. Steady, gentle pressure is applied to specific points on the body part that correspond and stimulate different organs and the endocrine system (various glands) to release energy blockage and stress.

Sliding Dry Cupping Therapy
An alternative therapy from Ancient China, cupping comes in many different types whether it is dry or wet, fixed or sliding. At Le Reve we use dry silicone cups and the sliding technique which increases blood circulation, relieves muscle tension, and improves overall blood flow and cell repair. Another unique advantage of sliding cupping is the reduction of cellulite and fat cells on the surface of the body, making your skin smooth and taut. Some light bruising will be visible for up to 10 days after treatment.
