BlueWater Day Spa Ortigas-Greenhills Branch recently invited me for an exclusive blogger event to present its added massage services:
INDIAN MASSAGE for head, neck and shoulder
Blue Water Day Spa’s International Indian Trainer, Miss Ranjeet Kour, brought a massage technique being practiced in India for over a thousand years now. Simply known as Indian massage, it’s an ancient and therapeutic massage style that focuses on the head, face, neck, down to the shoulders, and to the back of our bodies.
An Indian Massage usually targets areas where tension, tightness and stiffness built up and can be done within 45 minutes or 15 minutes per area. With aromatic essential oils that help soothe the nerves, you will feel calm, balanced and absolutely de-stressed after the treatment.
I have personally tried BlueWater Day Spa Indian Massage and it was really relaxing. My muscles were so hard which means tensed muscles as well, and having that massage released some of muscle stress.
Having an Indian Massage also stimulates and improves scalp circulation for promoting strength, growth and texture of hair. It relaxes the scalp, relieves eye strain and headaches while stretching and moving the neck and shoulders to improve mobility and flexibility of joints.
Anyone who’s suffering from a neck, shoulder and/or back stiffness and pains should try Blue Water Day Spa Indian Massage. But not for those who had recent neck Injury, fracture, severe headache, fever or has an active Migraine, hypertension or vertigo.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD) Massage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage or better known as MLD massage is the perfect therapeutic prescription for detoxifying and slimming; this toxin targeting technique recharges the immune system and reduces water retention and boosts sluggish circulation.
MLD can prove to be beneficial in the correction of varying conditions and in preventive health maintenance as well. Practitioners using the Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage are doctors, surgeons, osteopathic physicians, doctors of chiropractic, physical therapists, dentists, massage therapists and the like. MLD works to help recirculate body fluids, stimulate functioning and balancing of the immune system.
Undergoing a BlueWater Day Spa MLD massage may relieve vertigo, dizziness, headaches and migraines. It also helps in the reduction of edemas (swelling) and lymphedemas of many origins.
Moreover, having the MLD massage can provide relief of chronic and subacute inflammation and conditions such as acne, eczema, and allergies and alleviates adiposis and cellulite tissues.
While it can regenerate tissues and gives anti-aging effects, it detoxifies the body as well. Lastly, having a Blue Water Day Spa MLD massage offers deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitality, and loss of memory.
MLD works by spreading up the major superficial and deep lymph nodes. This stimulates the lymph fluid to flow toward the nodes that are acting like a vacuum, sucking up the excess fluid. Then the therapist will activate the stretch receptors in your skin to increase flow to the lymph nodes. The excess fluid then passes through your body’s sewage system and exits out of our body through our urine.
Is MLD painful?
A Blue Water Day Spa massage therapist will only apply light pressure to certain regions of the body that have a high concentration of lymph nodes such as the auxiliary and inguinal regions. Rest assured, this is very gentle and extremely relaxing.
