Swedish Massage - Swedish massage is phenomenal for relaxation and stress-relief. Cream or oil is applied to the body using lighter pressure massage techniques known as effleurage and petrissage.
Deep Tissue Massage - Deep Tissue massage is used to relieve pain and increase range of motion in the joints. With this type of work, the massage therapist may use forearms, elbows and hands to apply firm pressure in order to access the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues in the body. Deep Tissue work can be used in conjunction with Swedish massage or by itself. It is a great modality for targeting specific conditions such a frozen shoulder, tendonitis, sciatica or chronic headache.
Pre-Natal Massage - Pre-Natal massage is designed specifically for expectant mothers. We offer Pre-Natal massage with bolsters and pillows either in the side-lying position or reclined on a soft wedge. Side-lying and reclined massage are also great options for non-pregnant clients who may have difficulty or experience discomfort when lying face up on their back or face down on their abdomen.
Reiki - Reiki applies a healing energy through very gentle touch and manipulation of the energy body. Reiki supports the entire person physically, mentally and spiritually. On a physical level, it relaxes stressed muscles, decreases pain and accelerates healing. Emotionally, it reduces anxiety and stress and increases a sense of well-being. Spiritually, clients state they often feel reborn and clearer about their intentions.
