Located on the Upper East Side, JJ Eyelashes’ Madison Spa features a relaxing form of massage therapy, composed of various techniques. Customized for each client, masseuses engage in the manual stimulation and manipulation of the body’s soft tissues (i.e. muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments). By focusing on target areas and the total body restoration, massage therapy is often sought after to enhance a person’s health and well-being. JJ Eyelashes offers four massages (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, and Jade Stone), each customized to the client’s needs.
One of the most well-known massages, the Swedish massage is quite simple and relaxing to the entire body. By stimulating the muscles with enhanced strokes, your masseuse improves blood flow towards the heart, reducing muscle tension. Not only is the Swedish massage recommended to to increase the oxygen levels in the blood, but it also reduces muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility. If you are someone who doesn’t get a massage often or has never been to a massage therapist, our Swedish massage is highly recommended.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to the Swedish massage, our Deep Tissue massage uses deeper pressure to release chronic muscle tension. By focusing on the deepest layers of muscle, tendons, and fascia (protective layer around muscles, bones, and joints), the body begins to relax and heal itself. This is a common massage to reduce stress, hormone levels, and improve one’s heart rate, as it is a mood stimulant, releasing oxytocin and serotonin.
Hot and Jade Stone Massage
Using hot stone therapy, the masseuse promotes the melting of muscle tension, easing the stiffness of the muscle and increasing blood circulation. Each session promotes deep muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, heated stones at key points of the body. Using custom massage techniques, this massage relaxes the muscles, reducing chronic stress, tension, and muscle spasms; it also increases flexibility. Rather than using traditional Hot Stones, we also offer Jade Stone, which is more powerful and flushes toxins from internal organs and circulatory system.
For our clients who are experiencing pregnancy, this form of massage therapy is ideal for those who experience chronic headaches, tension of the muscle, and fatigue and backaches. Because each pregnancy is different, our therapists customize the service based on your everyday symptoms. This massage also provides more nutrient-rich oxygen and increases the flow of lymphatic fluid, ridding of toxins and metabolic waste.
For those who or suffer from ankle injuries, Plantar Fasciitis (inflammation of tissue), or are simply on their feet all day, our foot reflexology is ideal to release tension and pain. Using a traditional Swedish technique on the foot, calf, and upper leg, this form of massage therapy allows stress and anxiety to release from the body.
