Relaxing Massage

Swedish Massage — $75.00/60 Minutes

Swedish massage is an especially relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes, such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to improve circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include the following:

• Relief From Aches and Pains
• Decreased Stress Levels
• Improved Appearance
• Greater Flexibility
• Enhanced Mental Clarity

Deep Tissue Massage — $85.00/60 Minutes

Deep tissue massage relieves tension in the deeper layers of body tissue. It is highly effective at releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Soreness is common after the treatment, and you should drink plenty of water after the session.

Shiatsu — $80.00/60 Minutes

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of therapeutic massage. It comes from two Japanese words, shi- (finger) + -atsu (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along your energy pathways, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Chi (energy) throughout. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the physical, mental, and spiritual.

Thai Massage — $80.00/60 Minutes

Thai is a more energizing and rigorous style than most other forms of massage therapy. It's also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. Clients say that it is like doing yoga without any of the work. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. A single Thai massage session releases stress, relieves pain, and helps you function more effectively at work and home.

Myotherapy — $75.00/60 Minutes

Developed by physical therapist Bonnie Pruden in 1976, myotherapy applies focused pressure onto specific points called trigger points. They are places in the body that can radiate pain to other areas. For instance, a trigger point on the hamstring might cause problems in the lower back. These trigger points are deactivated by applying direct pressure to the muscle for several seconds with the hands, fingers, or elbows. Through several sessions of myotherapy, full function and range of motion can be restored.

Myofascial Release — $85.00/60 Minutes

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. Massage techniques that stretch the fascia are used. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia, allowing for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.

Pregnancy Massage — $75.00/60 Minutes

Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, pregnancy massage helps release the discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.

Sports Massage — $75.00/60 Minutes

Sports massage is designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Sports can be harsh on the body and lead to long- and short-term injuries. Sports massage encourages greater kinesthetic awareness, which stimulates natural immune function. It can also enhance performance and prolong a sports career. Benefits include the following:

• Prevent Injury • Reduce Pain and Swelling • Relax the Mind • Increase Flexibility

Hot Stone Therapy — $99.99/60 Minutes

Hot stone therapy uses heated stones that are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.

Child/Infant Massage — $50.00/60 Minutes

Child/infant massage promotes the development of your child or infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a healthy, thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are potent and numerous. Infant massage improves the quality of a baby's sleep. It may also strengthen the immune system, as well as improve growth and development of the brain and nervous system.
