Swedish Massage
The term “Swedish Massage” refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. It involves the use of kneading, stroking, friction, tapping, and vibration and may provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and many other health problems. The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deep layers of muscle tissues in an effort to release chronic patterns of tension. The massage uses many of the same strokes as classic message therapy, with the main difference lying in the fact that a deep tissue massage involves slower movements and the application of greater pressure.

Prenatal Massage
Prenatal massage services use prenatal cushions enabling mother to lie face down on the table to promote a comfortable position during their service. Our therapist, Kacie, is formally trained in Prenatal Massage Techniques and can utilize all traditional massage techniques during the appointment per the mother’s preference. Please note: It is not recommended to have a prenatal massage before the second trimester, unless cleared by your OB/GYN. If you have any further questions, please call before scheduling your appointment.

Acupressure
Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that utilizes the principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. In acupressure, the same points on the body are used as in acupuncture, but are stimulated with finger pressure instead of with the insertion of needles. Acupressure is used to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain.

Trigger Point Therapy

Hyper-irritable spots in skeletal muscle that is associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. Trigger point therapy is also called myofascial trigger point therapy. It was developed by Dr. Janet Travel in the United States in the 1940s.

Hot Stone
A full body massage coupled with hot stones to enhance the relaxation experience. The use of hot stones also increases blood flow to the muscle tissue. With increased blood flow comes better circumstances for tissue repair and healing.

Sports Massage
Sports massage is a
form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

Dry Cupping
Dry Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Detoxification Body Wraps
The pampering experience of a body wrap can provide multiple benefits. It can help rid the body of toxins through metabolic skin cell stimulation, help reduce inflammation as well as general aches/pains, and help promote weight loss.

Scalp Therapy
The use of warm beautifying oil, hot towels are used to promote a healthier scalp and overall relaxation.

Foot Reflexology
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology serves to relax tension, improve circulation and promote the natural function of the related area in the body.
