• Title - Massage Services

    Enhance your cleansing experience at OHI with massage and body work provided by our third-party service partners. These services can relieve stress, remove toxins, or simply make your stay more enjoyable. Examples of these beneficial services include:

    Swedish massage

    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. Helps to remove trauma, pain and tension from the body. Good for everything: Circulation and relaxation; Increases red blood cells; Equilibrium restored; Reduces fatigue; and Improves Metabolism.

    Deep tissue massage

    Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. Helps to remove trauma, pain and tension from the body. Expect to be asked to breathe deeply when the person treating you is working on especially tense or deep areas of your muscles. It's common to feel a degree of discomfort during the massage itself. You can also expect to experience some stiffness and soreness in the day or so following your deep tissue massage.

    Reflexology

    Thumb and finger pressure are applied to areas on the feet, which correspond to organs, glands and all body parts. It releases stress, tension, and congestion, which improve the circulation of blood, nerve and lymph to aid the body in its vital functions and the elimination of toxins.

    Lymph Drainage

    Manual Lymph Drainage therapy utilizes gentle massage strokes and circular pumping movements that remove blockages and promotes proper lymph flow. This is important because it is the primary function of the lymph system to defend the body against disease by cleansing, detoxifying, and nourishing the body's
    tissues.

    Reiki Massage

    Reiki massage or reiki therapy is a healing technique originating in Japan that promotes simultaneous physical and spiritual healing. Reiki is believed to work through an extremely specific process and connection between the reiki practitioner, the universal life force of energy, and the one receiving reiki treatment. While a reiki treatment is not a physical manipulation of the muscles, as are Swedish massage techniques, for example, reiki therapy does promote a general feeling of well-being and calmness, which can result in relaxed muscles.

    Energy Session with Evangeline

    This session is designed to free up blocked energy that has been restricted by suppressed emotions and behaviors, which manifest themselves physically as muscle tension, pain and illness. The blocked energy is released to re-establish a normal energy balance promoting deep relaxation and an enhanced capacity to experience life. As each session will vary please allow 1hour to 1-½ hours.

Spiritual Disciplines

In the Judeo Christian tradition, spiritual disciplines are a means of receiving the grace of God. They enable us to do what we cannot do on our own. By practicing spiritual disciplines, we cultivate a life in which God can bring growth, change, and transformation. Typically, spiritual disciplines are divided into two categories – internal and external. Some examples are listed below:

Internal / abstinence

  • Solitude: Be absent from others so you can be present with God
  • Silence: Quiet your voice and the voices of others, so you can listen for the voice of God
  • Fasting: Be aware of yourself and the needs of others; focus your heart on God
  • Frugality: Remove your desire for luxury and devote your resources to serving God and others
  • Secrecy: Let go of external recognition and find acceptance from God
  • Sacrifice:Give up self-security and put total trust in God

External / engagement

  • Prayer: Converse with God : Ask, listen, and open your life to change
  • Study: Change your way of thinking, your way of knowing and pursue God's truth
  • Worship: Experience the greatness of God in everything and everybody
  • Celebration: Rejoice in the goodness of God and live your life in gratitude
  • Fellowship: Gather with others to share love, joy, and encouragement
  • Service: Serve others and free yourself from arrogance and judgment
  • Submission: Be honest, open, and accountable to God and others
  • Confession: Acknowledge your offenses and find freedom in forgiveness

Practicing spiritual disciplines helps affirm your belief in God, enabling you to witness transformation in yourself and others in a community of faith, hope, and love.
