THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder.

DEEP TISSUE

Deep tissue works with your body in a deeper manner helping to break down stores of tension and stress with a deep, firm touch. Pressure is tailored to your specific needs and preferences, and care is taken to ensure that this remains therapeutic. 

SPORTS THERAPY

This massage will get your body working at its peak through deep tissue, stretching, or other healing methods. This work is specialized based on your body's unique physical needs and physical goals.

HOT STONES

A massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

SWEDISH

The most commonly used form of classical Western massage, generally performed in the direction of the heart, sometimes with active or passive movement of the joints. It is used especially for relaxation, relief of muscular tension, and improvement of circulation and range of motion.

AROMATHERAPY

The aromatherapy massage is an amazing sensory experience in which we pair your massage with wonderful scents tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Leave feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

ASHIATSU BAREFOOT MASSAGE

Ashiatsu is a deep compression barefoot massage where the therapist uses overhead bars on the ceiling for support and balance. The therapist can deliver a consistent deep pressure massage with their feet by using body weight and gravity. The broad surface area of the foot makes the compression smooth and provides the deepest massage possible without painful poking.
