Regular massage is essential in these increasingly stress-filled times. Massage may help improve circulation, boost immune system functioning, and release old stress patterns. Just as yoga practice is more beneficial when practiced on a consistent basis, massage is most effective when received regularly. We offer 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120-minute massages.

Relaxation Massage
Otherwise known as a “classic massage,” our Relaxation Massage is used to support the long-term health and rehabilitative care of individuals and athletes.  Firm but gentle pressure is used with long flowing movements for total relaxation.  Increased circulation and relief of muscle tension are results of this massage.

Wellness Massage
Relax with this delightful combination of Relaxation and Deep Tissue techniques. Flowing strokes help relax muscles and calm the nervous system, while techniques such as gentle squeezing, compression, and tapping target specific muscles. A Wellness Massage is a wonderful way to reduce stress and release deeply-held muscle patterns. This therapeutic style of massage can also be a highly effective form of body maintenance for athletes.

Deep Tissue
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.  The movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

Prenatal Massage
Nurture your changing body throughout pregnancy and beyond. Prenatal, labor, and postpartum massage techniques help to relieve soreness in the back, neck, and shoulders; reduce pain and labor time; improve recovery time; and reduce connective tissue damage after birth. For effective treatment, we recommend a 60 or 90 min session. Celebrate your pregnancy by taking time for yourself.

Cupping – ADD ON
Massage Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese art of cupping therapy. By creating a suction or vacuum, cupping therapy is used to release rigid soft tissue, drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue while bringing blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.

Hot Stones – ADD ON
This massage is performed using heated basalt stones. The heat from the stones is transferred to the body and warms the tissue to allow ease of muscle movement. This type of massage is fabulous for clients seeking a deeply relaxing massage. It is a perfect way for clients who have difficulties mentally unwinding to ease the mind in turn allowing the therapist to work out areas of muscle tension.
