Types of massages

I welcome you to the Gîte of Lac-à-la-Tortue, near Shawinigan, Trois-Rivières and Parc de la Mauricie.

Swedish/Relaxation

Swedish massage for relaxation. It is the most classic technique in the West, used to restore tired, intoxicated or inhibited muscles to good condition and to maximize the ability of the joints to act. Possibility of using Arbonne essential oil with eucalyptus to promote gentle movements.

Thai

Thai massage is a fluid combination of deep stretching, joint movement, rhythmic rocking and yoga poses, combined with energy line work and acupressure. It is both relaxing and invigorating.

Sportsman

Sports massage restores muscle tone through a massage that eliminates aches and toxins caused by physical exertion.

Latino

Accompanied by Latin music, Latino energy massage is based on an integral approach to the individual. Its principle aims at relaxing and awakening a psycho-corporal consciousness.

Japanese rejuvenating facial massage is a 90-minute massage, which involves working with different techniques, including bamboo chopsticks and hot towels. They aim to firm and cleanse the skin of the face and neck in order to reduce the signs of aging. With the application of heat source, which allows a very great relaxation of the nervous system, this treatment is effective against stress, headaches, insomnia, fatigue and eye pain.

Combining massage and aesthetic care, the Japanese rejuvenating Facial Massage is known to stimulate the entire energy circulation of the face, neck and entire body and releases muscle tension that promotes the appearance of wrinkles. Much more than a simple facial, the Japanese Rejuvenating Facial Massage is a 90min massage where the back, shoulders, neck, arms and hands are also massaged. In addition to the application of a heat source, which allows a very great relaxation of the nervous system, this treatment is effective against stress, headaches, insomnia, fatigue and eye pain. This massage also strengthens the immune system and promotes blood circulation, softens and tones the facial muscles, allows the skin to regain suppleness and elasticity, releases muscle tension in the face and neck, opens the respiratory tract, restores radiance to the complexion, soothes and calms.

Created in Japan in 1472, this treatment was first reserved for the empresses of the time and then became a traditional art of rejuvenation for Japanese women. This facial massage is known to stimulate the entire energy circulation of the face, neck and body as a whole and releases muscle tension that promotes the appearance of wrinkles. Ancient anti-wrinkle, Japanese rejuvenating facial massage is one of the most effective techniques today.

 

 Its regular practice makes it possible to prolong or restore the youthfulness of the face by softening and toning the muscles, purifying the skin and restoring its radiance. This massage consists of about forty techniques and alternates digital pressure, percussion, palpers rolling with bamboo, movements slipped on the neck, neck and face using meridians and tsubos (acupuncture points).

This massage is divided into several phases and will allow you to integrate a 10 or 15 minute facial massage into your Swedish or Californian massage. This treatment treats the entire upper body, mixing both massage techniques and Japanese aesthetic practices. Soft and deep, it brings great relaxation both muscular and cerebral and leads to a real inner well-being. A most interesting asset for massage therapists and spas!
