Skilled Hands provides Swedish massage (most common), deep tissue massage, reflexology, acupressure, shiatsu, remedial exercises and variety of other therapies and techniques.

Massage acts directly and more specifically on the musculoskeletal, nervous and circulatory system, and indirectly on all other body systems. As a result, massage therapy helps to relieve soft tissue discomfort and pain associated with every day and occupational stress, muscular overuse, sports and recreational injuries and many chronic diseases and pain disorders. It also greatly reduces tension, depression and stress by promoting calm, deep relaxation and enhancing your well-being.

Reflexology is a natural healing technique preformed by applying digital pressure to the reflex areas of the feet, hands and face which correspond to various organs, glands and body systems. Reflexology relieves tension and stress, improves circulation and helps promote the natural connection between mind and body and feeling of wellness.

Acupressure applies the same principles as acupuncture. However, there is no needle insertion because the acupuncture points are pressed by fingers. Acupressure like acupuncture helps relieve common back, neck and shoulder pains, headaches, menstrual problems and digestive disorders. Acupressure is particularly beneficial for people who are scared of needle insertion.
