To ensure wonderful spa experiences, discuss openly your likes and dislikes, concerns, questions or areas of focus with your Practitioner before and during treatment. 


Massage and Bodywork sessions are customized and Holistic Health focused to each individual and their specific bodily needs. Red/NIR Infrared Light Therapy is a separate treatment offered to anyone, even your furry friends. What is all incorporated in your session is as follows:


Swedish Massage Techniques


Feeling stressed and just need something basic as a pick me up? This type of massage uses light pressure, focusing on activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) to calm and de-stress the body and mind. Please request this so the practitioner knows that this is what you prefer and not a customized holistic massage. 



 Deep Tissue Techniques


This technique will utilize deep tissue/deep muscle massage. Pressure is administered to affect the sub-layer of musculature and fascia when appropriate. It can help with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis. Deeper tissue isn't always appropriate depending on your matter at that time so it may not be integrated if the therapist doesn't feel its appropriate. 




Myofascial Release Techniques


What is myofascia? Myofascia is a fibrous  membrane covering, supporting and separating muscles. This type of massage works best for those who are hypertonic. A slow process massage but the benefits are worth it after just one treatment. Myofascial release can be addressed from many different techniques such as dry stretching(no oil), Gua Sha and different cup or cupping techniques. 



Neuromuscular Therapy Technique


"Neuro" means nerves or nervous system. Neuromuscular therapy address the nerves that supply muscles. This is a targeted session, treating muscle fibers by using specific trigger points due to adhesions, repetitive movements or postural distortion. This technique can be addressed with different techniques as well; mostly through direct pressure for long periods and the use of a percussor tool. 



Thai Massage Techniques


Thai moves energy along predictable lines or pathways known as sens. Too increase the flow of energy along the sens; the practitioner will move your body into yoga-like positions in addition to pulling and rocking your body in various ways. Thai is traditionally performed on a floor massage mat as a session by itself with the person fully clothed but as this practitioner integrates all massage techniques in one, this separate session is not needed. 



Hot Stone Technique

Involves using smooth, heated basalt stones to help sink into the skeletal muscle tissue deeper, decreasing tension and allowing for a better night sleep. 

*Some medical conditions are contraindicated for hot stone. Discuss with your therapist if interested in trying hot stone massage.
