This is a customized signature aromatherapy massage that gives a unique soothing experience where we employ techniques of Swedish style massage using gentle to firm pressure to give depth without using very deep pressure.

We use specially made essential oil added to a warm carrier oil for deeper relaxation, a still mind and an inner sense of well-being.
Aviva Special Mix Therapy
An Aviva Special Mix Therapy is a massage integrating more than one style or massage technique. It can combine techniques from Swedish massage, Medical massage, Foot Massage, Shi-Atsu Massage, Indian Head-Neck Shoulder Massage and Hot Stone Massage. These combinations are used to tailor the massage towards your personal preferences and specific needs. Aviva Special Mix Therapy massage is a great choice for someone not as familiar with massage. It can help you discover your preferred massage technique in one quick session. In addition, certain combinations are said to amplify the healing effects of massage. For example, a Swedish massage combined with a hot stone may increase circulation and metabolism quicker than using only one style.

Hot Stone Massage
The hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The massage therapist places the hot stones on specific points on your body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage with gentle movements. The heat helps the body relax and warm the muscles so that the therapist can massage them better.
Stone massage is a gentle and very deep relaxation.
A hot stone massage is a truly unique experience, and while it may sound a bit alternative to massage with hot lava stone, hot stone massage is a recognized and very effective form of massage that we are very proud of being able to offer you in our clinic. Everyone can benefit from hot stone massage, and we hope you have the courage to try it and to experience the beneficial effects on your own body.

A sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Soft tissue is connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage; it includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
BENEFITS OF SPORTS MASSAGE
The following benefits can be experienced through the application of sports massage techniques:
Reduction in muscle tension, muscular pain and discomfort
Increased range of motion, leading to enhanced performance.
Decreased muscle stiffness and soreness after exercise or physical activity
Reduced recovery time post injury
Increased levels of relaxation and reduction in physical and psychological stress levels
Aids sleep quantity and quality.
These benefits are largely the result of an increase in local blood circulation which helps to flush out chemical irritants and waste products which have stored up within the muscle. At the same time, fresh blood flow increases oxygen and nutrient content within the muscle. This in turn can help with muscle repair and leads to a reduction in muscle tension
A swedish massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension.
Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
Swedish massage may loosen up tight muscles caused by daily activities such as sitting at the computer or exercising. It can be very helpful for people who hold a lot of tension in theirlower back, shoulders and neck.
During pregnancy, the mobility of the mother-to-be is much more restricted than it would otherwise be. This can lead to several changes in lifestyle, which in turn have an effect on the body. The above changes, combined with the changes the body is already undergoing as a result of the pregnancy, can cause a host of issues throughout the body, such as back pain, nausea, fatigue and cramping.
Massage during pregnancy helps reduce swelling, back and neck pain and improves circulation.
Anti Cellulite Massage
An anti cellulite massage affects the breaking down of fat build up and strengthening connective tissue at the affected areas and increasing blood circulation. Anti-cellulite massage has been specifically designed to eliminate cellulite over a period of continued therapy.
As with other massage therapy modules the focus is on increasing blood flow to the affected area and to reduce fluid build up.
The anti-cellulite massage technique is firmer and more fast paced than the typical Swedish massage or a relaxing massage. Also the areas with cellulite build up can be sore and sensitive. Due to this you might experience some discomfort when the massage therapist is working the areas with the cellulite. Here communication between you and your massage therapist is key to ensure you have the best experience. Over several appointments the client begins to see visible results.
An anti stress massage is a combination of therapeutic massage of the back and relax massage.
Anti-stress massage is one of the most effective methods of relieving stress and a supportive treatment to prevent stress-related problems in our body. This massage relaxes the muscles and especially the nervous system, improves blood flow, circulatory and digestive problems and your body will be more resistant to stress.
It is performed with slow and rhythmic strokes to the head, neck, back and the back of the legs.
