Therapeutic Massage Treatments

Therapeutic Massage Treatments calm your inner soul and focus on the painful areas of the body. Stimulating these areas helps the body to energize and re-balance itself, healing both the body and mind.   Whether stimulating, deep or calming, therapeutic massage combines a blend of Mayan, Marma Point, neuromuscular, abdominal, and sports massage techniques. AromaTouch or Bio-Touch can be added to any therapeutic massage.

Deep Tissue Massage works layer by layer while concentrating on specific areas of pain using deep pressure and slow strokes.  It aims to release chronic tension and toxins in the body and improves pliability with scar tissue. AromaTouch or Bio-Touch can be added to any deep tissue massage.

Vacuodermie at re:fit in Glenview

Vacuodermie® Therapy (using state-of-the-art device) proves its effectiveness by extracting toxins and invigorating tissue flexibility, which improves lymphatic flow, circulation, scar therapy, and the immune system. Vacuodermie uses custom settings and connections to improve chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chemical sensitivity, brain fog, migraines, tender lymph nodes, disrupted sleep, and GI disturbances. Vacuodermie also mitigates symptoms from restless leg syndrome and varicose veins while promoting healing of scar tissue and burns.

  • Cupping is a special way of using Vacuodermie that validates the medicinal power of circulation. During cupping, vacuum pressure is applied to the skin, which stimulates the breakup and healing of muscular scar tissue and painful lactic acid nodules. Using this technique on restricted fascia from injury can result in greater mobility and functionality.
