Located in the heart of historic downtown Maquoketa, IA, Healing Arts offers numerous modalities for relaxation as well as rehabilitative/clinical-style bodywork. Not all bodies respond the same to any one modality. Our vast array of holistic services--each bodyworker having a unique academic background in holistic wellness--provides some of the best spa experiences along with lasting benefits of wellness. ENJOY!
Smooth bamboo (& rattan) tools are used to apply petrissage (kneading) in a different manner: rolling over the skin (rolling-pin style!), rolling/kneading into the tissue, gentle twists & strips with the softened ends of the tools. Gentle tapotement (percussion) may also be done to "wake" stagnant-feeling tissue.
Bamboo may be warmed, chilled, or used at room temperature for optimal therapeutic effect.
Any 60, 75, 90-minute or 2-hour massage with Dena may receive a complimentary bamboo massage sample during session.
