Deep Tissue

60min-$100 / 90min-$140

Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of massage is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layer of muscles, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle). Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints.

Hot Stone

60min-$100 / 90min-$140

Enjoy the relaxation and comfort of our couples suite. Let the direct heat of the warm stones relax your muscles, allowing the therapist access to deeper muscle layers and melt away any tension or discomforts you may have. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also encourages blood flow throughout the body and have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Sports Therapy Massage

60min-$95 / 90min-$135

Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion.

Therapeutic Massage

60min- $100 / 90min- $140

Therapeutic Massage seeks to obtain a therapeutic benefit. While therapeutic massage is often relaxing, the end goal of the session or series of sessions is not relaxation. Therapeutic massage can be used to aid specific concerns, injuries, is also suitable for people with disabilities and a variety of other treatments. For an injury you may have regular therapeutic massage to loosen muscles, improve muscle tone, and increase their flexibility. Basic therapeutic massage techniques are derived from a variety of massage styles. Your massage therapist will tailor your massage techniques depending on your needs. If you are unsure whether or not massage is appropriate for you please ask.

Maternity Massage

Prenatal  Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness.

What are essential oils?

Essential oils are the subtle, volatile liquids and aromatic compounds that are distilled or pressed from plants. Essential oils are present in the oil glands, hairs, ducts, bark, stems, leaves, and flowers of many plants. They are called “essential” because they are the immune system of the plant and without them the plant would die.

What is Essential Oil Therapy and Aromatherapy?

Essential Oil Therapy is the use of therapeutic quality essential oils to treat clients psychological or physical ailments both internally and externally. Aromatherapy focuses more on the inhaled used of essential oils to treat a client. In recent years the term Aromatherapy has grown to include external use of essential oils applied to the skin. What is the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils? Essential oils are derived from the true aromatic essence of plants, while perfume or fragrance oils are artificially created or contain synthetic materials. Perfume or fragrance oils do not offer any of the therapeutic benefits that true essential oils do. Only essential oils can generate a therapeutic benefit because they contain all the chemical constituents necessary for the cell receptor sites to recognize the oil and to utilize it. Fragrance, perfume, or synthetic oils are missing some of these key chemical constituents, therefore, causing the cell receptors to repel the isolated compound and initiate an immune system response such as an allergic reaction. True essential oils are hypoallergenic. If a company offers essential oils (single notes, not blends) such as peach, new mown hay, morning dew, etc. then they are most likely offering fragrance or synthetic oils and should be avoided. Also avoid companies selling precious oils like Rose for less than $50/ounce, as it is most likely synthetic.
