Swedish Massage
A soothing, relaxing series of massage techniques that were developed in Sweden in the mid 1800’s that produce a wonderful rejuvenating experience. This classic massage is good for stress management and general relaxation. It utilizes a light to medium touch that helps increase circulation, reduce muscle tension, cleanses lymphatic system leaving you with an overall sense of well being. Regular Swedish Massage sessions improve and increase the quality of your life.

Deep Tissue Massage/Deep Muscle Therapy
Especially effective for back, neck, shoulder pain and stiffness. We use advanced massage techniques that reach the deeper layers of muscles, tendons and ligaments, plus the use of trigger points to relieve chronic pain, cross fiber stroke to soften stiff muscles, Assisted Isolated Stretching™ to increase range of motion, moist heat and ice massage therapy, use of aromatherapy and topical herbal remedies… all combined to reduce chronic pain, correct misalignments, restructure tissue and eliminate discomfort.

Sports Massage
Excellent for anyone who participates in physical activities, with or without sports injuries. Sports Massage includes the same techniques as in the Deep Tissue/Deep Muscle Massage (see above); however, specific attention is placed on sports related body mechanics or injury as well as those groups of muscles, tendons and ligaments involved in your particular sports activity. Sports Massage substantially reduces recovery time, increases flexibility, minimizes pain and accelerates healing of soft tissue injuries. This massage has proven beneficial for pre and post marathons, training workouts, competitions and tournaments but can be enjoyed by any athletic person.

Aromatherapy Massage
Included with a relaxing Swedish Massage (see above) is the added olfactory dimension of Aromatherapy; the art and science of essential oils. These oils are derived from the highest quality flowers and herbs that have healing properties. A custom blend is created for each client. This blend is then added to massage oil and applied to the body and diffused in the air. The molecules of the essential oils are small enough to penetrate gently through the skin and lungs and enter your body with ease. Aromatherapy helps conditions of fatigue, stress, headache, muscle aches, bronchitis and sinusitis. This aromatic experience can also help uplift, calm and relax.

Reflexology Massage
Hand and foot massage using fingers and thumb pressure to stimulate the reflex points that refer to all the major internal organs, muscles, nerves, joints and spinal column. This also assists in removing toxins that build up due to gravity and weak circulation and it feels good too!!!
