Sometimes, straying away from the traditional gives an element of excitement and a bit of rebellion. In this case, creating a custom massage experience for what you know will cater to your exact needs, can be a lot more fulfilling than sticking to the traditional!
Tumi Wellness prides itself in being flexible to our client’s needs. We have customised a few of our signature treatments by mixing things up to best suit the needs of our clients. Here are some of our non-traditional massages that have become very popular with some of our regulars:
Own your 60 minutes with a combination of your favourite massages. You can combine Indian Head Massage, Swedish and any other massages that you enjoy the most. We recommend a maximum of two types in order to get the most out of each express treatment!
Great add-ons to traditional massages are head and foot massages. INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is said to improve circulation in the head, enhance the senses, improve memory and promote clear thinking. It is thought to help those suffering from insomnia, vertigo and depression. FOOT MASSAGES re-energize and balance the body. They also improve circulation, lymphatic drainage and boost the immune system. By reducing stiffness foot massages also increases range of motion and accelerates healing.
Stress Reliever Massage
We all react to stress differently but for most people, they carry a lot of their stress in their back and shoulders. This massage is particularly helpful for clients looking to ease stress and muscular tension in the back area resulting from a deskbound or sedentary job. Your therapist will spend more time than usual massaging your back and shoulders, giving them plenty opportunities to knead out those stress knots. If you are looking for improved muscle tone, boosting lymph and blood circulation to aid detoxification, this could be the massage for you. To top this treatment up, this massage also comes with a scalp and foot massage for complete relaxation.
Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman's life but with it come a few aches, pains and unimaginable levels of exhaustion! Take time to put your feet up and enjoy the relaxing therapy of massage with our highly skilled therapists! Prenatal massages are great for relieving back pain, joint pain and the stress and anxiety of prepping for an addition to the family. This massage is only open to women in their second trimester of pregnancy and with the consent of their medical practitioners.
This is a relaxing and therapeutic treatment concentrating on pressure points and massage techniques on the feet. Here is the best part, you do not need to undress for this treatment! For a change, you can enjoy this treatment, fully clothed and sipping on something nice! Reflexology helps balance and detoxify, which can help alleviate tension in the body, relieve headaches, sinus congestion and most stress related conditions.
By the reflexologist's application of pressure to feet, hands, or ears, it sends a calming message from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system, which in turn signals the body to adjust the tension level in mirror areas of the body. Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist or therapist. This will allow them to adjust the pressure accordingly.
Instead of the relaxing gliding and kneading motions characteristic of more popular forms of massage, Thai massage employs stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion.
The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Did somebody say lazy person's yoga?! Sounds pretty awesome to me! Thai massage will have you feeling limbre, refreshed and relaxed ready to conquer the world!
