Massage

While these are specific types of massage you may request, often times a combination of these styles is best, offering you the full benefits of your massage.

Be sure to specify which type of massage you would like, so we may be sure to book you with the specialized therapist.

Hot Stone Massage

This is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, water heated, basalt stones as an extension of their own hands and also by placing the stones on the body.  It is both deeply relaxing, calming to the nervous system, and helps warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply if desired.  Hot Stone has been very successful in relieving general and chronic muscle pain, arthritis pain, calming anxiety and stress, relieving depression and insomnia and bringing significant, long lasting relief to those who suffer with fibromyalgia.

Reiki

This is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Craniosacral Therapy

This is a light touch approach that releases tensions deep in the body. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, Craniosacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.

Raindrop Technique

This involves the amazing power of essential oils, which are dispensed in small, rain-like drops about six inches above the back and are very lightly massaged along the vertebrae, back muscles and spinal reflex points on the feet. It is a non-invasive tool utilizing the antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic action of nine essential oils, bringing the body into structural and electrical alignment.

Oncology Massage

This  massage pairs traditional, established massage therapy techniques with advanced training in the complex medical issues associated with cancer and cancer treatment. Oncology massage helps to ease the side effects of cancer treatment.

Chakra Balancing

Pure essential oils are used to help open and balance the seven chakras promoting health and wellness both physically and emotionally.  Seven powerful essential oils have been selected to correspond with a specific chakra.  The oil will be applied to the chakra as well as inhaled through calming deep breaths. A pre and post reading of the chakras can be included to evaluate the progress made.

Thai Table Massage

The Massage therapist performs a dynamic flow of movements, joint manipulation and rhythmic stretching done fully clothed on the massage table. It is an effective way to reduce the mental anxiety and physical tension brought on by the cumulative effects of everyday stress.  You will be left with a sense of calm, openness, and mental clarity, feeling recharged, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Swedish Massage

A classic relaxation massage incorporating slow sweeping strokes and kneading to soothe away muscular tension while promoting circulation.

Deep Tissue Massage
