Light to medium depth pressure and techniques are used for a customized massage aimed for your utmost comfort and relaxation. This session is based on Swedish-style massage. This is our most popular offering.
An integrative massage session ranging from medium to deep pressure; trigger point work may be used. In this massage, the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones,and joints) and on harder-to-find spots like muscle insertions and attachments. Injured areas may receive manual therapy in which quasi-static pressure is applied to soft tissue to stimulate release of trigger points that refer pain elsewhere in the body.
Our cupping sessions are a combination of traditional massage and cupping therapy. The suction provided by cupping can break up stagnation in the body, soften muscle tissue, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. The skin can turn red with strong movements, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface. Think of it like a reverse massage. Instead of applying pressure down onto the body, the tissues are drawn into the cup instead.
Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a certain temperature range. The stones may be placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired. The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system.
Getting its name from the Japanese words "Ashi" (foot) and "Atsu" (pressure), Ashiatsu is the western version of an ancient type of Asian bodywork that is done with the feet. In Ashiatsu, the massage therapist uses bare feet to apply deep, broad compression and effleurage strokes to the client. The massage work can be very deep without feeling "pointy". The therapist uses bars attached to the ceiling to balance. It is performed on a standard massage table on bare skin with cream or oil.

A form of Swedish massage specifically designed to meet the needs of the mother-to-be. Special techniques are used to relieve pain and stress as well as reduce swelling in the legs, ankles and feet. Some massage therapists will only work on pregnant women once they are beyond the first trimester. Unless the pregnancy is considered high-risk or there is a history of miscarriage, experts agree that this precaution is completely unnecessary.
