Aromatherapy is a gentle therapy using relaxing massage and essential oils to relieve physical and emotional conditions, enhance well-being and promote health. Aromatherapy could possibly affect you physically, emotionally and also spiritually. Each essential oil has its own unique combination of therapeutic properties. Rieko will give a massage using the appropriate essential oils according to the client's condition.
Deep Tissue Massage (DTM)
Deep Tissue Massage (DTM) is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It helps to release the chronically tensed and contracted areas in the body, such as stiff necks, sore shoulders and lower back tension. It is also used for reducing pain and discomfort in conditions such as repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. DTM employs slower strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques such as Myofascial Release or Trigger Point Therapy.
Trigger point therapy
A trigger point is also known as myofascial trigger points, which are tight areas within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger Point Therapy is a technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve myofascial pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Rieko often incorporates massage and Trigger Point Therapy together.
Holistic/ Therapeutic massage is a very effective massage which may help to speed up the body's recovery from physical and mental fatigue, stress and general aches and pains. Various pressure and massage strokes are applied according to the client's need.

Reflexology is an ancient form of complementary therapy. It is the technique of applying gentle pressure on the reflex points of the feet and hands that are thought to correspond with organs, glands and structures around the body. This brings about a state of deep relaxation, stimulates the body’s own healing processes and encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance. Many people may benefit from reflexology and find relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
