Treatment that feels like treats! These are hands-down favorites for soothing sore, overworked muscles, vanquishing tension and lifting your spirits. And you can combine Classic Therapies together, or with a Specialty Therapy for your own unique program.
The classic! A totally indulgent full-body massage that soothes tired, tight muscles, stimulates circulation and is utterly relaxing. Your therapist can customize the pressure and target problem areas to ensure you receive the most therapeutic benefit. From 30 minutes to 2 hrs. See our rates menu, or call.
A wonderful introduction to massage that melts away tension and energizes. If you ever wished your salon shampoo could last more than 5 minutes, a Scalp Massage is pure bliss. Focusing solely on the head, neck and shoulders--often the nexus of pain and stress-based tension--the therapist coaxes muscles along the occipital ridge at the base of the skull to relax, thus allowing the shoulders to drop and creating freer range of motion in the neck. Can be performed while you are fully dressed (the only thing you take off are your shoes), so you can de-stress easily. (30 or 45 minutes.) Can be incorporated into longer sessions with other therapies.
Practice and repetitive training can cause over-development of certain muscle groups and disturb natural alignment leading to weakness, injury or strain. Our customized Sports Massage is designed to get the body back in balance using a combination of techniques to address specific sports-related aches and pains and finishes with a gentle stretching session. A restorative gift for your favorite tennis player, golfer, runner, swimmer or high-school athlete. (60 minutes.) Can be incorporated into longer sessions with other therapies such as Swedish massage or Reflexology.
Modern modalities that integrate knowledge of ancient practices and advanced medical techniques. These therapeutic options can be especially beneficial as a complement to conventional medical treatment for chronic pain, chemotherapy, and repetitive stress conditions, or to renew energy and restore a feeling of wellbeing.
Deep Tissue Massage
Performed slowly and methodically, using precise and controlledmovements, Deep Tissue Massage is one of the most effectivetherapeutic modalities for releasing tension in the deepestmuscle layers. Excellent for targeting specific problem areas and extremely beneficial for people who spend long hours sitting at a desk or computer. (60, 75 or 90 minutes).
Pre- & Peri-Natal Massage
Ease aching muscles, soothe swollen feet and lift your spirits with this gentle massage. As pregnancy progresses the pelvis flattens out the ligaments in the hips, thighs and knees, causing added discomfort in the joints, legs and lower-back pain. Our Pre- & Peri-Natal Massages cosset the mom-to-be in an embrace of soft pillows while all her aches and pains are tenderly nurtured. A treat for mom and baby, and a thoughtful shower gift. From 60 minutes. See our rates menu or call.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
MLD is designed to stimulate lymphatic circulation, the body’s natural cleansing system, this gentle massage of light rhythmic strokes, sequenced with careful rotating and pumping movements, can restore balance and reduce pain due to infection, inflammation, radiation or chemotherapy. Extremely beneficial for cancer patients (read testimonials) and those suffering from auto immune diseases, chronic allergies or rosacea. (60 or 75 minutes).
Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST)
Using extremely subtle and precise adjustments and light pressure-point touch, the therapist gently works to balance the soft tissue and bones of the cranium (head), spine and pelvis. Designed to improve the flow of fluids within the cranio-sacral system, CST can release accumulated stress and tension, balance energy flow in the spinal column and create an overall sense of well-being. Especially helpful with chronic headaches, neck and jaw stiffness and pelvic pain. (60 minutes.) Can be incorporated into longer sessions with other therapies such as Swedish massage or Reflexology.
A treat for dog-tired feet and a relaxing way to refresh and rebalance energy and stimulate circulation. Specific pressure points on the soles of the feet are stimulated via massage, which according to traditional Chinese medicine correspond to specific meridians and organs, allowing Qi (chi/energy) to flow naturally and freely throughout the entire body. Reflexology can be performed while you are fully dressed (the only thing you take off are your shoes and socks), so you can de-stress easily. (30 or 60 minutes). Can be incorporated into longer sessions with other therapies such as Swedish massage or Deep Tissue.
