A massage that manipulates the body using alternating long and short strokes, increasing circulation as it relieves tension, aiding in the body’s own restorative powers.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as in Swedish massage but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
A customized massage with therapeutic-grade essential oils to address your individual needs and respectively energize, calm and relax you.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
$120 (75 minutes)
This unique massage combines Swedish techniques with the heat of the stones to warm and relax the muscles, allowing the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired. The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system, helping to rebalance the body and mind.
Designed to be shared with a significant other, or you can simply enjoy some bonding time with a best friend, daughter, mother, father or sibling while indulging in a side-by-side Therapeutic Massage. Add aromatherapy for $10 per client.
Massage Cupping is an adaption of ancient technique and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Plastic cups act as a vacuum pump to create negative pressure on the skin's surface. Cups are then moved using various techniques while gently pulling on the connective tissue. Bony land marks such as spine and scapula which are often avoided (due to compression because typical massage would cause pain), can be worked on. Click HERE to read more.

PRENATAL / POST-PARTUM (PREGNANCY) MASSAGE
Pregnancy massage focuses on the dramatic structural, physiological and psychological ways a mom-to-be is changed and challenged during this time. While not intended to replace appropriate medical care, it can enhance this special time by relieving some of the common discomforts related to pregnancy – including postpartum – such as neck, back and hip pain as well as the stress of being a new mom! Some of our therapists are trained to work with more complicated prenatal issues. Please inquire for more details. READ MORE
GENTLE / PALLIATIVE MASSAGE
This is a gentler approach that works superficially with the connective tissue to provide you with an opportunity to connect with your body while working with the autonomic nervous system to give you a space where you can rest from the fight-or-flight state that we often feel moving through our days.

Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing. Wear comfortable clothes, as you will be fully dressed during the session.
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork that calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, while it improves circulation, relieves stiff muscles and alleviates stress. The word "shiatsu" means "finger pressure." Your therapist will apply pressure using his or her fingers, thumbs, and/or palms in a continuous rhythmic sequence to open energetic pathways (meridians) to improve the flow of qi.
The pressure feels more localized, because unlike other types of massage, the finger pads are used to apply pressure for most of the treatment instead of the entire palm. Certain pressure points may feel tender and the treatment is done on a low massage table or on the floor. No massage oil is applied, and you remain fully clothed during the treatment. We recommend that you bring comfortable clothing to wear.
Ashiatsu is a deeply relaxing therapy, where the therapist uses her feet and body weight to relax the muscles. The therapist must have coordination, balance, as well as a skilled but instinctual ability to apply the appropriate amount of pressure to different areas of the body. We use the bars for balance, allowing the sensitivity of our feet to focus on musculoskeletal alignment and pain relief. This style of work is great for anyone who wants deep, compressive pressure along large muscle groups and is looking to relax. Although it is much different from a traditional Swedish massage, the long, slow strokes can be quite sedating, and really allow for the client to "zone out" (once they've gotten over the mystery of being massaged with the therapist's feet!).

MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE (MLD)
MLD is a type of gentle massage that is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The aim of the massage is to move fluid from the swollen area into an area where the lymphatic system is working normally. To do this, the therapist might first massage and clear the area they want the fluid to drain into. For example, the therapist might massage your chest and neck if you have lymphedema in your arm, giving the fluid somewhere to drain to when they massage your arm.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
