Looking for a deep massage that addresses your aches and pains?  You have come to the right place.  Our massage therapy sessions blend deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy and myofascial therapy with relaxation-focused techniques to target restricted muscles and irritated tissue create an experience that is deep, effective and relaxing.

Every body is unique and therefore every massage is too. Each massage is tailored to the specific needs of each client, and to treat YOU uniquely.  Unlike spas that charge extra for more pressure, we believe in using “every tool in our toolbox” to give you the treatment that your body needs.

This treatment is highly recommended for anyone suffering from insomnia, struggling with high-stress situations or grief, or as a gift for a loved one (including yourself!).

Integrative cupping Massage

Cupping Massage uses the placement of silicone cups on areas of tension to decompress muscle tissue and address connective tissue restriction, improve circulation, move lymph fluid, and improve overall muscle function.  In these sessions, your MT will incorporate the use of cups into a therapeutic/deep massage, using both static suction (cups left in place) and at times using the cups in a more mobile method to create stretch within the tissue.  Clients love cupping because it allows for deeper, more effective massage with less discomfort.  Warm eucalyptus towels placed on your back complete the therapeutic experience.  (available scent free as well)

30 min (cupping only): $55

 

PRENATAL MASSAGE

60 min: $85  

Prenatal massage offers support during pregnancy to help the body adapt to the physical and gravitational shifts that lead to hip, low back and neck pain.  Prenatal massages are completed in “side-lying position” using pillows for comfort or using our special prenatal massage tables that include a cushion cut-out so that she may comfortably and safely lay on her belly during the session.  Our number one comment is “I’m so comfortable, I would be happy just to lay here for an hour!”  We recommend buying a package for monthly sessions during the 2nd and 3rd trimester.

Therapeutic massage during pregnancy offers a variety of benefits ranging from reducing pain and discomfort to restoring a sense of emotional well-being.  Specifically, prenatal massage can be helpful to:

  • Address pain in the hips, shoulders and neck that occurs as a result of postural changes.
  • Provide needed rest if sleep is difficult.
  • Decrease the production of cortisol (the stress hormone) and increase the production of serotonin (the happiness hormone) to decrease anxiety and increase a sense of well-being.

Prenatal massage is considered to be safe and beneficial during pregnancy.  However, some precautions are taken during pregnancy to ensure safety. Specifically, acupressure points associated with stimulating contractions and exceptionally deep techniques are avoided.  As with all medical conditions, women that are pregnant and considered to be "high risk" should consult a physician before receiving massage.
