A therapeutic massage is a fusion of Swedish, deep tissue and MyoFascial release. Incorporating techniques from several different modalities creates a truly customized therapeutic treatment. Each session is tailored to an individuals specific needs and are available in 30, 60, and 90 minute increments.
Heated Stone Therapy
Heated Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones 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.
Thai Yoga Massage
2,500 years ago this dymanic bodywork emerged from the temples of Thailand. Based on Ayurveda this bodywork blends yoga and acupressure for a deeply relaxing treatment. The practitioner uses their hands, knees and feet to guide the client through a series of yoga postures and stretches, while applying acupressure. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, increases range of motion and calms the mind.
Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable attire allowing ease of movement. No yoga experience is necessary to enjoy this ancient therapy.
Chair massage is a great introduction to massage therapy. The client sits in a comfortable ergonomic chair for a session of 10-30 minutes. This therapy is excellent for individuals uneasey about disrobing as clients are fully dressed during this treatment.
On-site chair massage is also a fantastic way for employers to show appreciation for their employees by having a therapist come to their office.
PreNatal Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using pillows and bolsters to support mom, pregnancy massage helps ease the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body restore and improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved sleep, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering 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. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Myofascial release is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.
