Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person's health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).
Sita Mani is trained in Swedish Massage and Sports Massage at The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences and her particular approach combines the Feldenkrais ideology, which involves gently supporting and encouraging the system to release tensions in harmony with its own natural rhythms (eg. breath and muscular contraction), with deeper traditional massage techniques for working with tension, scar tissue and soft tissue adhesions.
This modality requires removal of clothing (to the degree that the client is comfortable), laying on a massage table with the body draped (covered with a sheet), and the application of cream as a medium to contact and work with the soft tissues of the body.
Sessions are 60, 75 or 90 minutes as per client needs/requests.
