Signature Swedish Massage
This Signature Massage is a relaxing massage that relieves stress and induces an overall state of well-being. It begins with light bodywork using broad strokes that slowly deepens into more area specific bodywork. This massage relieves muscular soreness, fatigue, discomfort and tension. The goal of the Signature Massage is to help you relax into a deep, meditative state that allows a natural healing to the body.
Ease away the day’s stress and strains and bring the body and mind back into balance. This traditional aromatherapy massage uses the powers of the essential oils and carefully applied pressure to stimulate the nervous system while providing mental and physical relaxation.
Hot Stone Massage
A unique body massage rooted in Native American traditions. Smooth, heated, basalt stones are used to relieve muscle tension and balance energy in the body, creating a feeling of deep relaxation and well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
Unlike a full-body Swedish massage, deep tissue massage is a massage which focuses on your problem areas. Deep tissue is intentionally very slow paced. The slow deep strokes stimulate deep into the muscle tissue to loosen muscle fibers, alleviate pain and increase mobility. Suitable for those who require deep, focused pressure on chronically tense areas (such as neck, low back and shoulders). This massage is great for anyone with chronic pain, injury or range-of-motion issues.
A revitalizing massage designed to promote flexibility, increase circulation and stimulate the muscles. Using a combination of stretching, aromatherapy and intelligent therapeutic bodywork, this treatment will help repair you – increasing muscle relaxation, immune function, circulation, nerve function and mental and emotional clarity. A free consultation with the therapist is included with your first therapeutic massage.
Tension Headache / Migraine Release
This massage helps relieve both types of headaches by easing muscle tension, relieving muscle spasms, and relaxing tension held in the muscles of the head, shoulders and neck. When muscle tension eases, there is less pressure on the nerves and the blood vessels that supply them. Massage therapy not only helps the muscles of the body to relax, but also effectively reduces the anxiety and mental stress that can cause or exacerbate the headaches. Regular ongoing massage therapy can also help to prevent headaches by helping to reduce overall stress and the muscle tension that can trigger headache pain.
Pre-Natal for the Expectant Mother
This extremely relaxing massage eases discomfort associated with pregnancy by using gentle pressure and massage strokes that focus on lower back, hips, shoulders and feet. This massage will increase circulation, alleviate tired muscles and reduce water retention. *Expecting mothers must be past their first trimester and no farther than 36 weeks. Deep work not administered during this massage.
Stemming from ancient Egyptian origins, the practice of reflexology uses specific pressure point techniques on the feet triggering nerve endings throughout the body to improve circulation while promoting balance and full body wellness.
Zen Scalp Ritual (Enhancement for Massage)
Relax as the therapist slowly applies warm Moroccan oil over the scalp. The vitamin rich oil provides intense conditioning while the gentle, rhythmic, scalp massage relaxes and de-stresses the scalp and neck.
