Swedish & Prenatal Massage


This form of massage is the typical massage that most people receive. It involves the use of oils and lotions to give smooth long strokes and kneading along muscle tissue fibers to decrease tension and increase circulation. Prenatal and deep tissue massage include the aforementioned techniques. Added techniques to Swedish massage treatments can include lymphatic drainage, trigger point therapy, joint mobilizations, fascial release, cupping as well as craniosacral therapy.

Thai Massage

Thai massage can also be called Thai yoga massage or Nuat Boran. This practice strives to eliminate blockages in the sen sib which are energy lines in the body. Clients are dressed in loose clothing and are treated on a supportive floor mat. Compressions and passive stretches are applied to the client in a rhythmical fashion to move energies around the body to decrease the blockages.

Hot Stone Massage

​This unique treatment involves the use of heated basalt stones derived from volcanic lava. Due to its natural origin, basalt stone retains heat and is a perfect medium for delivering deep heat to tight muscle tissue, helping to decrease muscle tension and increase circulation. The use of cold basalt stones or jade can help decrease areas of inflammation and swelling. Additional therapy during a hot stone treatment may include aromatherapy to relax or stimulate the body through the olfactory senses and/or the use of chakra stones to rebalance energies, resulting in enhanced therapeutic effects.


Indie Head Massage

Indie head massage is derived from the Indian system of medicine known as Ayurveda. The face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back and upper arms are massaged with warm oil, which helps decrease stress, tension, and sinus headaches, and helps increase circulation and concentration. It also nourishes the scalp and hair.   


Reflexology


The feet conceal a map of the entire body and by alternating pressure on specific points and areas on the feet, it can affect various organs. Nerve endings in the feet connect to every part of the body and by stimulating them, internal organs can be indirectly stimulated to promote healing from the inside out.
