Thermal Palms were created by Hugette Long, a registered massage therapist and spa facilitator from Ottawa, Ontario. It has become Canada’s signature trademark in the massage industry. It is a treatment that melts away your tension and soothes to the core!
Thermal Palms are soft hand held heated sachets that mould to the contours of the body while delivering a deep and penetrating heat to muscles and joints. The deep heat of Thermal Palms alleviates chronic muscular tension allowing the muscles to become pliable and responsive to massage techniques while reducing post treatment tenderness. Although firm pressure massage techniques can be included, the focus is to provide a deeper sense of physical relaxation which promotes a more peaceful state of mind.
Thermal Palms massage improves circulation, enhances lymph flow, relieves sore muscles, calms the parasympathetic nervous system which reduces pain signals to the brain and ultimately helps you to relax and get the most benefit from your treatment.
Thermal Palms massage is ideal for people with:
- anxiety, tension and stress
- poor circulation
- muscle aches, pains and stiffness
Thermal Palms is not for everyone though. For those with health conditions that contraindicate the use of heat, such as heart disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, diminished sensation, acute trauma or inflammation then this treatment would not be suitable for you. We do have other techniques we use that can provide you with the therapeutic benefits of massage – just let us know and we’d be happy to discuss them with you.
