Massage Services and Pricing

Female Services

CranioSacral - is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.

Deep Tissue Massage - relieves tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. It is highly effective for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Soreness is pretty common after treatment so plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Gentle Massage – is the gentle rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands, especially to relieve tension or pain.

Hot/Cold Stone Massage – It uses both hot and cold massage stones to create a deeply relaxing, yet refreshing and rejuvenating experience.  Cold stones can also be very beneficial in the treatment of inflammation and muscular injury.

Myofascial Release - Is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Massage with Cupping - Cupping therapy is when a massage therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This therapy is used for assisting with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Massage with Hot Packs – Hot Packs is used in conjunction with massage therapy. Therapeutic heat can relieve muscle spasm, reduce pain and increase blood flow to the injured area.

Pregnancy Massage - It is a gentle form of massage which relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).

Post-Partum Massage/Body Work - Is an effective and holistic approach for the many adjustments to motherhood. . Massage is well known for relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief and other health benefits.

Sports Massage – Is different massage and manual therapy techniques aimed at restoring functional movement, increasing performance and recovery and decreasing chronic pain.



Male Services

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) – Is a dynamic system for improving your flexibility and overall well-being (Developed by Aaron Mattes). Stretching your muscles not only reduces your chance of injury, but also strengthens your tendons and improves your circulation.

Chair Massage - Relieves stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. The massage is given in a specialized ergonomic chair which is brought to your location. This type of massage is designed to relieve tension or pain with the gentleness of rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body. This type of massage is done over clothes and is usually a shorter session.

Deep Tissue Massage - Relieves tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. It is highly effective for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Soreness is pretty common after treatment so plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Hot Stone/Hot Pack Therapy – It is a style of massage therapy where heated stones/packs are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones/packs release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The experience is very relaxing, nurturing and rejuvenating.

Sports Massage – Enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. It is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.

Swedish Massage – A very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork.  It combines oils or lotions with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. Benefits of this type of bodywork are relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance and great flexibility.
