MENU OF SERVICES
THE CALM | swedish massage | 30/60/90 mins | $40/$70/$100
This is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. With light to medium/firm pressure, the therapist uses different flowing strokes to rejuvenate, relieve stress and tension, improve circulation, and promote total relaxation of body, mind, and spirit. Each session can be catered to the clients specific needs and goals. Regular Swedish massage has been shown to improve skin tone and texture, improve lymph function, increase oxygen in the blood, and decrease in levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Best experienced as a full-body massage; the therapist will use techniques such as gliding effleurage, kneading petrissage, and other frictional type techniques to induce relaxation and loosen tight muscles. Areas massaged during a full-body session include the neck, arms, hands, legs, feet, back, and scalp when applicable. Each session ends with hot towels on the back. Modesty is always preserved and draping is always required.
THE FIX | therapeutic deep tissue massage | 30/60/90 mins | $50/$80/$110
Similar to Swedish Massage, deep tissue massage uses deeper pressure to reach buried layers of muscle tension, helping to release chronic areas of pain. The therapeutic style can still have an overall relaxing effect, while also increasing vitality and providing relief from pain. This type of massage is often slower in pace than swedish, as moving to fast during a deep tissue massage could cause some discomfort. Deep tissue does not have to be painful, but some discomfort can be felt for example when there are trigger points (a tight area within the muscle that can radiate pain to other parts of the body) that need work. Trigger point techniques include periods of isolated pressure and release. Communication with your therapist during a deep tissue session is key, as different parts of the body require different amounts of pressure.
Best experienced as a full-body massage; the therapist will discuss the areas causing the most pain and will determine if heat therapy (paraffin), or other pain relief creams/ointments (white flower, tiger balm, biofreeze) would be beneficial during the session. Areas covered during the massage are neck, arms, hands, legs, feet and back. Each session ends with hot towels. When applicable and discussed, the glutes may be included professional as well. Modesty is always preserved and draping is always required.
*If you have areas that have been bound and causing chronic pain over a long period, you may require multiple sessions to see and feel desired results.
THE STONE | hot stone massage | 90 mins | $110
This 90 min Swedish Massage (see “THE CALM” for Swedish specifics) is a crowd pleaser for both those seeking deep relaxation, as well as those who have areas of stubborn pain. The heat from the basalt stones has a sedative effect that can help in relieving chronic pain without the use of deep tissue techniques. Primarily used on the back, the hot stones help melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation. The 90 min session allows the client to slip into a state of deep relaxation, where stress is reduced and deep sleep can be induced.
The stones will be heated to a bearable heat level, but it is always important to communicate with the therapist if the heat is too much. If you would like the hot stones used on an area other than the back/neck, please let the therapist know, but keep in mind the 90 mins is designed to give an efficient full body massage, with the majority of time for the stones to be used on the back.
THE GLOW | prenatal massage | 30/60mins | $45/$75
For expectant mothers 13+ weeks, a prenatal massage is an excellent compliment to conventional (or unconventional!) medical care during pregnancy. Unless otherwise recommended by your Doctor, prenatal massage can be performed all the way up until and during labor. It is a relaxing way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness of mother and baby. The aches and pains of pregnancy are countered by the release of serotonin, your body's natural anti-pain chemical, which is stimulated by massage. Using swedish massage techniques (see “THE CALM”) with light to medium/firm pressure, backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling) can decrease, while also giving the joints a break from bearing the extra weight of pregnancy. And lastly, prenatal massage relaxes nervous tension, promotes better sleep, and can even help in relieving depression caused by hormonal changes.
There a a few options when it comes to positioning the expectant mother during the massage. From the traditional side lying method, to a wedge pillow under the back and head, to the innovative pregnancy bolster (which allows the mother to lie face down in a plush bolster designed use for pregnancy. It has a large cut out for the belly, breasts, and face). Many clients find this extremely comfortable and a real treat to be able to safely lie “on” their tummy!
Our therapists that offer prenatal massage are very concerned with your safety and comfort. Please discuss all expectations, concerns, and questions before, during, and after the session.
*Reflex points on ankles and feet corresponding with the uterus and ovaries will be avoided
THE ROOT | foot reflexology | 30 mins | $50
Our feet do a lot for us; Sometimes we need to treat them to something special and deeply therapeutic. Not only does this 30 min session feel simply amazing for a part of the body that rarely gets that kind of attention. It can help with conditions such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis, and overuse aches and pains- but even more amazing, it can help detox the entire body and promote healing for every organ and nerve.
Out feet are like a map of our body. Every organ and system is represented and can be addressed through the feet. Using a technique that intricately covers the whole foot, thumb walking, reflexology helps to balance the nervous system by stimulating the nerve endings of the feet, which connect with the spinal nerves and their corresponding organs. It works with the circulatory system, breaking up congestion and deposits in the feet, which in turn help detoxify the body.
For holistic results, reflexology is best when received regularly. But even one session can help with acute issues like helping pass kidney stones, helping relieve constipation, addressing areas of the body that are injured can cannot be massaged directly (i.e. post surgery), or breaking up congestion in the lungs. The possibilities and results are endless. Each session ends with hot towels on the feet.
THE STRETCH | sports massage | 60 mins | $80
Sports massage works deep in the muscles, realigning the muscle fibers and connective tissue, and flushing away toxins. It’s well suited for athletes or anyone suffering from tension, immobility, or injury from sports or repetitive use. Can also assist those preparing for upcoming athletic events, or those wanting to reduce recovery time. After a range of motion evaluation, the therapist will target problem areas with deep tissue massage, trigger point, as well as passive or active stretching techniques.
Clients should arrive wearing athletic shorts (and sports bra for females). The session is not designed to induce relaxation, as there will be a lot of movement and communication between there client and therapist.
THE RELEASE | fascial therapy | 30 mins | $50
This pain and cellulite reducing myofascial therapy, is specifically designed to target the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles and organs throughout your entire body. If you have chronic pain and cannot seem to get relief from other modalities, your fascia could be bound, causing adhesions that dont allow the muscles and joints to remain in their proper place. When fascia is extremely bound, or when there is scar tissue, regular massage will not fix the problem. Combining “THE RELEASE” with another modality such as “THE FIX” can give optimal results.
Being that fascial adhesions are ornery by nature, it’s going to take some grit to convince them to let go. For the relief that will be felt on the other side, enduring some discomfort during the session is something most clients find worth it. You will be asked to sign a separate waiver as this service is completely different from a regular massage. The therapist will discuss what to expect during session, as well as discus which areas in particular are to be focussed on.
*For clients seeking reduction in the appearance of cellulite, multiple sessions will most likely be recommended.
THE CLEANSE | manual lymphatic drainage | 30/60 mins | $50/$80
This is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that has a powerful effect on the body. Using the technique Developed in France in 1932 by Emil and Estrid Vodder, Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa, just enough to pump rather than flatten the lymph nodes) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. It helps eliminate swelling by facilitating the movement of ‘stuck’ lymph back to the heart for circulation and elimination. Additionally, it helps free clogged vessels, so the lymph system can work better in the long run. Those with immune disorders, recent surgery, chronic infection, allergies, sickness, stress or depression can benefit greatly from this modality.
The 60 min session addresses lymph nodes over entire body, while the 30 min session addresses those from the sternum and up. While clients are typically encouraged to “undress to their comfort level”, it is best when receiving MLD to undress completely, as even underwear can inhibit lymph flow. client will be properly draped and modestly preserved at all times. You can receive MLD up to 3x per week, and you should drink plenty of water after. Slight detox effects could be felt.
*Those seeking MLD for reducing swelling cause by fluid build up after cancer treatment should first get consent from their Doctor.
THE RAIN | raindrop technique | 60 mins | $90
Using about $30 worth of Young Living Essential oils per session, this technique is unlike anything else. If you suffer from stress/anxiety/depression, chronic pain, an auto-immune disorder, scoliosis, or want to strengthen your immune system, the Raindrop might be just the thing to try.
Here’s how it works: The cells that make up everything in our body are constantly communicating with one another. When everything is in alignment, the messages are clear and correct. When toxins from stress, the environment, medications, sickness, etc enter the picture, the messages get distorted. Enter the Raindrop. The amazing oils used during each session have incredible abilities to do 3 things: 1) clean off the receptor sites where messages are sent and received; 2) DE-program the wrong messages between cells; 3) RE-program the correct messages. What does this mean? It means that the same oils used on each person, will have different effects for each person, depending on what is out of alignment in each persons body. Amazing!
Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Peppermint and Aroma Siez are applied to the feet using a technique called Vita flex (life through the reflexes) and to the spine in a “raindrop” like fashion. Specific techniques are then used to assure that the oils penetrate deep into the muscles and are picked up efficiently by the nervous system, to be carried through the entire body and to every cell. Clients often describe feeling like they have gotten a massage and an adjustment. This technique can have a detox effect that can vary from person to person and can even come in the form of an emotional release. This is all considered normal and healthy.
*Arrive hydrated and showed *if* possible. You will be asked to drink more water than normal after the service and asked to leave the oils on your skin w/out showering overnight- this is advised but not required for effectiveness.
If you have ANY allergies, please discuss with the therapist prior to the session.
