Relaxation massage is provided while you sit comfortably in our chair, designed specifically for the purpose of massage. To sweeten your experience, aromatherapy is included!
Swedish is perfect if your main goal is to relax. This modality is usually lighter in touch than other forms of massage techniques and includes long flowing strokes, kneading, and/or friction techniques on more superficial layers of the muscles. It can loosen stiff joints, reduce muscle tension, and help clear nasal or chest congestion.
Deep Tissue/Therapeutic Massage can be corrective and beneficial for many physical problems resulting from injury, daily life, or disease. Multiple techniques such as triggerpoint therapy, cupping and/or other modalities may be used to treat the areas of focus. If you have a specific "issue" you would like addressed, or if you simply prefer deeper pressure while you relax, this massage is for you.
Sports massage focuses on muscles relevant to the event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event. Prior to an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles so that their performance and endurance might be enhanced. Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports Massage may utilize a variety of techniques such as classical Swedish Massage, trigger point therapy, and hydrotherapy.
CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (CST)
CST is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams, restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system can be released. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and for it's effectiveness on a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. Research (and personal experience) has shown that CST has had significant positive impact on those suffering from PTSD, autism, ADHD, stress, physical &/or mental trauma, and more.
Think of Cupping as an inversion of massage, where tissue is pulled upward to create "space" for circulation, and the created suction pulls toxins out of deeper tissues. Cups are usually left in place for a period of time and are also used to glide over the skin, pulling the tissue upward along the way. The result is increased blood and lymphatic circulation; relaxed fascia and muscle tissue; and the withdrawing of pain-causing stagnation and toxins out of the deeper tissues. For these reasons, Cupping is generally recommended for the treatment of pain, stiffness, gastrointestinal disorders, and lung diseases, among other ailments. Please note that cupping will likely leave temporary marks that have the APPEARANCE of bruising. These marks are indications that stagnant blood (containing toxins, lymph waste, pathogens, etc.) have been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface. The color and pattern of the marks depend on the level of stagnation in the area, and range from a bright red to dark purple, usually lasting 3 days to a week. If there is no stagnation present, there will be only a pink marking which disappears in a few minutes to a couple of hours.
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage ¬– to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies.
HOT STONE THERAPY
The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles. Always check with your doctor before getting a hot stone massage; individuals with certain conditions--including pregnant women and people with high blood pressure--are advised to avoid this type of therapy.
4-HANDS MASSAGE THERAPY
This treatment is said to be an Ayervedic tradition. Two therapists provide relaxing massage to one person, mirroring each others' movements. For example, both your arms are massaged at the same time, or one therapist works on the right side of your back while the other works on the left. As you might imagine, this treatment can be twice the benefit in half the time. You must try it! (Excludes Hot Stone Therapy)
COUPLE'S MASSAGE THERAPY
Two individuals both receive their massage treatment in the same room at the same time. This is perfect for when you want to share your spa experience with a friend, loved one, or significant other. Each individual selects their desired massage service. (For example, one person can receive Deep Tissue massage while the other can opt for Swedish & add on a specialty emollient; or both individuals can opt to receive the exact same service.)
HANDS & FEET
Hot towel wraps, aromatherapy, and TLC for your hands and feet. Need we say more?
Essential oils are extracted from parts of herbs and plants and contain all the properties of the plants themselves, each plant having one or more unique benefit to offer. Because the oil is condensed, only a few drops are needed. The essential oils chosen by the client are mixed with the massage lotion and applied directly to the skin. (If needed, the therapist will be happy to assist with choosing the right essential oil for the session.) The effects of an aromatherapy massage can last up to 48 hours, depending on the oils used.
Topical pain relievers--whether in the form of creams, gels, lotions, or oils--can be useful tools to assist in getting the most out of a massage session. This is highly recommended for Deep Tissue, Therapeutic and Sports Massage therapies.
The creams, lotions and oils we use on a standard basis are high-quality and formulated specifically for massage. However, we like to offer you more luxurious or more nutrient-packed options that your skin will love you for. (These products vary, so please feel free to ask your therapist what we currently have available.)
