One of the most popular massages at SPA LUX - The Muscle Meltdown is a favorite for a good reason!
The technique we call “Muscle Meltdown” massage may be one of the best options for many people. As the name implies the technique has something to do with warming up the muscles to make them softer, more loosened and therefore more susceptible to a therapeutic treatment. In order to provide a proper Muscle Meltdown massage SPA LUX uses Hydrocollators in order to warm up heat packs with pure water. These heated packs are then placed strategically on the body to relax the muscles and provide access to deeper areas of connective tissue. Heat alone can relax tightened or injured muscles, and can reduce muscle pain. But, when it is combined with a lighter form of Deep Tissue massage it becomes truly therapeutic.
When you book a Muscle Meltdown massage and come to your appointment, we will pre-heat the Hydrocollator packs. The packs are designed to retain heat for the duration of the massage and there will be no need to reheat them. You will be accompanied to a room and set up on the massage table. The hot packs, wrapped in towels, will be placed on various areas of your body (determined by the therapist) in order to loosen the tissue and access the deep muscles of the body. You will feel the packs warming up the tissue. Each area will need a few minutes for the heat from the packs to penetrate. During this warming period the therapist will massage a different area of the body. For example, while the heat packs are on the back, the therapist will massage legs while the back warms up.
Communicate with your therapist in order to achieve the most comfortable and productive session.
The therapist will move the packs during the session and massage the heated areas. You will feel those deep seated knots literally melt away under their hands. At times you will feel the therapist digs right into the deep muscle to loosen it. But, with preliminary heating, the possible pain and discomfort will be significantly reduced. This is the main purpose of the technique. The main benefit of this technique is that the therapist can access deeper layers of muscles that have been loosen by heat in order to rip all the benefits of Deep Tissue massage without the pain.
