Swedish Massage

30 minutes- $30 ∗ 60 minutes- $50 ∗ 90 minutes- $75

A variety of techniques designed to relax the muscles by applying pressure against deeper muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood that returns to the heart.

Reflexology

30 minutes-$30

Reflexology can help to optimize blood, lymph, and nerve flow to painful areas, thus minimizing discomfort as well as muscle tension and facilitating the body's natural healing and detoxifying processes.

Deep Tissue Massage

30 minutes- $30 ∗ 60 minutes- $50

By releasing the chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and by applying a more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles will get you feeling better in no time.

Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage

30 minutes- $30 ∗ 60 minutes- $50

Take care of your body and your baby--both at the same time. Prenatal/pregnancy massages are the perfect treat for achieving that much needed peace and tranquility that you so deserve.

Bamboo Therapy

30 minutes- $30 ∗ 60 minutes- $50 ∗ 90 minutes-$75

Bambo sticks are used as a massage tool and are heated and oiled. Bamboo is used to give a deep, firm massage. The cane is held by the therapist and rolled over the muscle using the same stokes normally used by the hands, forearm, or elbow. The muscles are then kneaded, which assists in the release of tension and easing of knots.

Aromatherapy

30 minutes- $40 ∗ 60 minutes- $60

Massage oil is blended with essential oils to affect your mood and alleviate pain.

Trigger Point Therapy

30 minutes- $30 ∗ 60 minutes- $50 ∗ 90 minutes- $75


Trigger points or trigger sites are described as hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers. Trigger point practitioners believe that palpable nodules are small contraction knots[ambiguous] and a common cause of pain. Compression of a trigger point may elicit local tenderness, referred pain, or local twitch response. The local twitch response is not the same as a muscle spasm. This is because a muscle spasm refers to the entire muscle entirely contracting whereas the local twitch response also refers to the entire muscle but only involves a small twitch, no contraction. The trigger point model states that unexplained pain frequently radiates from these points of local tenderness to broader areas, sometimes distant from the trigger point itself. Practitioners claim to have identified reliable referred pain patterns, allowing practitioners to associate pain in one location with trigger points elsewhere.[2]
