Swedish Massage

The most widely recognized and commonly used category of massage is the classic swedish massage. Swedish massage is one of the most relaxing, yet therapeutic, styles of bodywork. Swedish massage includes five standard techniques: effleurage (sliding or gliding); petrissage (rolling, kneading); friction (cross fiber or with the fibers); tapotement (rhythmic tapping), and vibration/shaking and a lubricating product (oil,lotion) for smooth soothing strokes, with varying pressure and tempo - from light to vigorous. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include: relief from muscle aches and pains, whether due to exertion, inactivity or stress; decreased joint stiffness and increased range of motion, yielding greater flexibility; while improving circulation, mental clarity and appearance.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a form of bodywork that aims toward the deeper layers of fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joint capsules. Deep tissue massage takes the classic swedish massage to another level; employing many of the same techniques - it is the intent that changes. Due to the nature of deep tissue work, communication during the session is important to maintain your comfort level. Keep in mind that soreness is not uncommon after the treatment. Remember to hydrate well.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage (aka manual therapy) has many industry terms, and often, more than one form or technique may be applied during a session. Like deep tissue massage, therapeutic massage goes another level up in intensity and intent. Pre and post assessments might be performed and notated. Passive and active exercises might be employed. Range of motion techniques might also be used. You might even have exercises suggested that you can do at home or work. When receiving therapeutic massage, communication becomes paramount. Soreness can be expected for 1-3 days, and using hot and cold therapy afterward will help reduce this effect. Always remember to hydrate well and frequently.

Ashiatsu - Oriental Bar Therapy

60 Minutes - $85.00 | 90 Minutes - $127.50 | 120 Minutes - $170.00

Pkg of 5 - $340.00 | Pkg of 5 - $510.00 | Pkg of 5 - $680.00

Ashiatsu means foot pressure. Ashiatsu is a massage incorporating traditional swedish massage effleurage and traditional shiatsu pressure points delivered by the therapist's feet, while maintaining balance, leverage and pressure via overhead bars. The broad soft pads of the feet work the muscles effectively deep, while the slow and rhythmic tempo is quite relaxing. Adjustments are not uncommon, but are only a side effect of the body naturally relaxing and realigning; it is not a specific intent. While this treatment is superior for those who work out often, and though it may seem intimidating to have someone stand on you, it is good for all body types.

La Stone Therapy (Advanced Booking Required)

90 Minutes - $132.50

La Stone Therapy is a swedish massage incorporating hot and cold stones. The stones can be placed on specific areas of the body to deepen relaxation, soften fascial layers and promote circulation. The stones are also used within the massage using effluerage strokes. The warmth is soothing and relaxing. It is a good choice for those who tend to be cold, and/or have poor circulation.

Modern Cupping

60 Minute Stationary Treatment - $50.00
Non-stationary Treatment (massage service add-on) - $10.00

An ancient healing technique brought into the 21st century - there is Fire Cupping, Vacuum Pump Cupping, and Silicone Cupping. Each method produces a vacuum effect. The stationary (vacuum pump) method draws the tissues, interstitial fluids, and blood into the cup, and in turn opening the skin's pores, whereby creating a release of impurities; the cups are placed strategically and left for a short duration. The non-stationary (silicone) method uses gliding, pulling and vibration to lengthen, lift, and break up fascial adhesions; it can be employed during any massage treatment. Cupping, though considered safe, can cause swelling and/or bruising on the skin where the cups were applied. In most cases, the bruises are usually painless and disappear within a day. For more serious treatments, resulting in more serious effects, the markings can take anywhere from 3-7 days to dissipate.
