Therapeutic and Relaxation Massage
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body, addressing areas of pain or discomfort due to acute or chronic injury, repetitive strain, postural dysfunction, changes due to pregnancy, emotional stress, and others. Having both a relaxing and therapeutic effect, massage may include Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, joint mobilizations, cupping, instrument assisted, and stretching. After reviewing your health history and listening to your concerns, we work with you, implementing a variety of techniques to promote tissue healing and achieve your treatment goals. Clear communication with our clients and recommendations for self care enhance a positive treatment outcome.
This gentle form of fascial release is growing in popularity. During treatment, the therapist places plastic or silicone suction cups on restricted areas and moves them slowly to decrease fascial adhesions. The cups may also be left on specific areas for several minutes for deeper effect. Clients might experience pleasant skin pulling as layers of fascia unwind, increasing blood flow to the area and promoting tissue healing. While cupping may leave circular marks on the body, these are temporary and fade within a few days. Myofascial cupping can be used by itself or within a massage therapy session.
Gentle, nurturing and deeply relaxing, Reiki is subtle energy work that brings healing to body, mind and spirit. Applied by resting hands directly on or above the body, this "Universal Life Energy" can not only bring relief to physical discomfort and pain but can also deepen one's awareness and connection to Self.
Reiki may be used to relieve pain, improve sleep and digestive issues, recover from illness or injury, reduce stress and fatigue, ease anxiety, depression, and grief, just to name a few. Ideally Reiki is a treatment within itself but may also be included within a massage therapy session.

Traditional Thai Massage
The art of Traditional Thai Massage, practiced in Thailand today, is a unique form of body therapy that combines ancient practices taken from both China (acupuncture) and India (yoga). It is done on a mat on the floor with the patient fully clothed. The practitioner uses their hands, feet and elbows to employ elements of gentle rocking, deep tissue stretching and rhythmic compression. The Thai method of massage uses a combination of muscle stretching and pressure point techniques on the main energy lines, called SEN, to initiate energy movement through the body. It is of great therapeutic benefit for a wide range of conditions such as headaches, back pain, digestive disorders, shoulder and neck tension, joint pain, menstruation problems, insomnia, stress related conditions and much more.
Manual Lymph Drainage
MLD uses gentle, rhythmic, pumping massage-like movements to stimulate the movement of fluids in the tissue. The lymph vessel system is responsible for carrying excess water, proteins and wastes from the connective tissue back to the blood system. If the pathways become congested, blocked or damaged, fluids can build up in the tissue leading to swelling. MLD aids the lymph system by transporting damaged cells, inflammatory products and toxins away at a faster rate, speeding up the healing process. MLD is beneficial for lymphedema, non-infected inflammatory conditions (like acne, tendonitis, sprains, etc), sports injuries, burns, recovery from plastic or orthopedic surgery, circulatory disturbances, venous insufficiency and as an immune system boost.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation
IASTM uses smooth, bevel edged stainless steel tools to assess and treat soft tissues. The tools may be used to reduce scarring and fascial restrictions, but by adjusting the rate, depth and time an area is treated, the IASTM has also been shown to stimulate different sensory receptors in the skin, affecting the nervous system as a whole. The results can lead to decreased pain, increased local circulation, improved mobility, and deeper relaxation. IASTM can be used for short, localized treatments, or in combination with other massage therapy techniques.
Please note that all new clients require an initial therapeutic assessment. We recommend our 75min Therapeutic Massage with Assessment package as it allows for a successful initial treatment.
If you decide to go with a different service on your first visit with us, a 15 minute assessment will be included in your massage.

We require a minimum of 24h advance notice of appointment cancellation. Missed appointments and appointments cancelled in less then 24h prior are subject to a fee equal the price of the scheduled treatment. This fee must be paid prior to rebooking and it can not be charged to the insurance provider.
