Organic Fusion Massage: an IO Client Testamonial
Perfect Fusion – A Treatment Testimonial by IO Client, Joslyn H.
I have to rave about IO Massage Therapist, Mieze Steinberg, and the amazing IO Organic Fusion Massage she gave me the other day. The Organic Fusion is a specialty massage that combines three of my favorite things: massage, yoga, and aromatherapy.
I learned that Mieze is trained in Thai yoga massage, which is bodywork that is like letting someone else put your body through yoga poses without you ever lifting a muscle, so to speak. She raised me gently into a heart-opening cobra pose which made my cranky back feel fantastic, and then stretched out my hips by manipulating my legs in the most subtle, effortless way.
IO Organic Fusion also incorporates basic Swedish massage and a little bit of shiatsu: the practitioner uses their fingers to apply pressure to traditional points along the body in order to stimulate the meridians (in eastern medicine) and key points along the nervous system (in the western philosophy). Shiatsu is a traditional therapeutic form of massage, and utterly relaxing.
Here’s my favorite part of the experience: having the highest-quality organic IO Enrich cream methodically and sensually applied to my skin, all over, to re-hydrate from the drying effects of winter. That’s followed up by a liberal application of IO Anoint body oil. Both are organic products that have lasting effects on my skin. Even after sitting in the steam room for a good twenty minutes after my massage, my skin still felt baby-soft for quite a while.
I like to be really warm, especially when I am trying to relax. And the warmed, citrus-scented towels that Mieze laid under my neck, across my back, and around my feet had the most cozy and comforting effect. If it sounds like there’s a lot going on with this treatment, trust me, it all blends magically into a sensory experience that will leave you feeling like a happy noodle.
Thank you for the perfect fusion. When can I come back?
