Available Massages:

Swedish Massage 
Characterized by a smooth manipulation and kneading of the muscles with oils to promote stress relief, improve circulation, relieve muscle pain, increase flexibility, and induce relaxation.

Sports Massage 
A deep massage of the muscles and foundation tissues used in athletic activities, often around the joints. It combines classical Swedish style with trigger point and compression techniques to reduce soreness. Perfect for preparing for sports activities or after a strenuous workout.

Prenatal Massage 
Enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, noninvasive approach can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy and is only performed during the second and third trimesters.

Acupressure (30, 60, 90 min only) 
Ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulates the body's natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, and reduces pain.

Deep Tissue Massage 
Deep work brings about realignment of postural distortions and restores proper range of motion by freeing congested muscle attachments. Muscle function and awareness are balanced, and elasticity is revived. (with trigger point therapy if necessary)

Lymphatic Drainage Massage (60, 90, 120 min only) 
A type of gentle massage intended to encourage the natural drainage of lymph fluid. This type of massage is used for people who retain fluid due to surgery, injury, or poor circulation.

Muscle Activation (60, 90, 120 min only) 
A technique that activates the inhibited muscle to restore full firing function of the muscle. Consultation is required before scheduling for this technique.
