At our facility you won't find a "grin and bear it" mentality.

Relaxation Massage 30-90 Minute long sessions
Relaxing and rejuvenating Swedish massage.
Massage treatments are tailored to your needs and preferences. These treatments are not deep tissue. This method of massage works with your body, melting through the layers of tension rather than forcing through it. Treatments are performed in a quiet atmosphere with soft music of your choice and natural light.
Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.
Essential Oil Wrap Add 20 minutes to your session length
Essential oils and massage lotion will be applied to your body with gentle effleurage (long soothing strokes) as you relax in a gentle atmosphere of soft music and natural lights. Then you are cocooned while the essential oils do their work. When the treatments is over you will feel relaxed, soothed and rejuvenated. *This is my personal favorite*
Essential oils stimulate and tone the skin while calming your nervous system. They can increase local temperature, reinforce interchanges and speed the elimination of toxins. The lotion is given time to absorb into your skin leaving it soft and supple.
Hot Stones Add $5 to your treatment cost. done within Scheduled Treatment
This special massage uses basalt stones that are heated to optimum temperature and are then used with massage strokes to provide a unique relaxing massage. The stones help to heat and relax tight muscles before the therapist works on the area to allow deeper work more quickly. Hot stones can also be incorporated into your regular massage to increase relaxation of muscles.
Hot Stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. You shouldn't get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as it may trigger a hot flash.
