Services and Rates

Investing in massage is an investment in your health.  Many modalities are offered, so after you read through the following information, we can discuss which style would be most appropriate for your needs.  All treatments are provided with the client either fully clothed or securely draped under linens as to protect the modesty of the guest.  Gift Certificates are available for purchase.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage in the United States. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation, decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.  

Aromatherapy

This treatment is completely different from traditional Swedish Massage.  A majority of the focus during the treatment is spent on the back along the spine.  It is this area in which the body can most efficiently absorb essential oils directly into the nervous system.  This is a highly choreographed treatment specifically designed to follow the nervous system as it stems out from the spinal cord to relax the body and mind.  Carefully applied pressure stimulates the nervous system while swedish and neuromuscular therapy relieve tension and lymphatic drainage encourages healthy circulation.

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy

This deeply relaxing treatment uses the therapists body weight to press, sweep, swirl and sooth the muscles.  Many forms of barefoot massage have been brought to the United States from India, Japan, Thailand, China and the Philippines.  The majority of them are provided on a mat on the floor with the client's head turned to the side.  Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is provided on a massage table with the client's head comfortably in a face cradle so the spine is straight and the client is more comfortable.  The therapist uses massage oil and their freshly pedicured feet to glide across the body while the client is securely draped.  The pressure can be light (similar to a Swedish massage) or the pressure can be deep (similar to a Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Therapy Massage) which makes this a highly customizable treatment to fit different needs of different clients.

Hot Stone

If you love heat, this is the massage for you.  The stones glide over the body in a seamless dance to relax the mind and body while the heat from the stones sink to the deeper levels of tissue to aid deep muscle knots releasing and your stress melting away.

Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex points on the ears, hands and feet which correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body.  By applying pressure to these points, reflexology helps to relieve tension, improve circulation and help promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.  This treatment encourages deep relaxation and restores an overall sense of balance and well-being.

Structural Rebalancing

When the body is not symmetrical in one area, other areas are often affected by being thrown off balance to compensate which can cause discomfort or pain.  With this modality, which has a 6 session minimum, we can strive to bring back the natural balance of your body by directly affecting the specific tissues that are throwing you off balance.

Thai Massage

This modality has it's roots in Thailand and was developed more than 2,000 years ago.  If offers aspects of acupressure, massage and passive assisted stretching.  The bodywork is purposeful and slow as you are guided through movements while I will be ever respectful of your physical limitations.  You are asked to wear clothing that does not restrict movement, such as yoga attire.  This modality is provided while you are fully clothed, while you are on a matt on the floor or on the massage table.
