Here at Le Reve, we offer many different massages to meet your body’s needs. One of our all time favorite massages is the Barefoot Massage.
Also known by many as the “compression cure“, in barefoot massage direct pressure is applied to the muscles, to give slow, deep, thorough compressions. A perfect blend of deep tissue therapy and the ultimate in relaxation massage.
This deeper form of bodywork helps to assist with the rest, recovery, and repair of muscle tissue creating a positive structural change in chronic soft tissue damage. Barefoot massage is an effective bodywork treatment for treating and preventing all types of athletic injuries. Most clients report significant decreases pain with amazing increases in range of motion and athletic performance.
While this type of massage is typically requested by athletes or clients with sports or repetitive strain injuries its ability to reduce stiffness and increase flexibility can be beneficial for all.
It is often reported by our clients with repetitive strain injuries that following barefoot massage sessions they experience a greater flexibility than even before they were injured!“While Barefoot is deeper massage than a typical Deep Tissue session it feels like a Swedish massage with a relaxing stretch that takes you further than you could go on your own”-Bridgette
