The benefits of massage are numerous, besides a feel-good experience, there are some serious rewards:
Physical: massage eases muscle pain, head and/or body aches and improves circulation, combats postural stress that can come from sitting or standing for extended periods of time. Mental/emotional: massage also helps to raise alertness and focus, soothes anxiety, depression and/or stress. It can also have surprising effects like improving sleep and boost immunity, even beauty benefits from flushing out of toxins.
Please take a look at the massage menu for descriptions of various types offered. New Clients can request a date and time for massage in the Intake Form below.
Light and Fluffy
A light to medium pressure Swedish-style massage, a no pain, gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, to help relax you.
Sports massage, that can be like a work-out in itself, which utilizes stretching, breathing exercises, vibration and tapping to help energize and to prevent or treat injuries.
Good Cop, Bad Cop
Deep tissue massage that relaxes the muscles slowly, then deeply, using slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries or overuse.
Office work often leads to neck and shoulder tension which can then turn into headaches and add to stress. This massage focuses on the neck, shoulder, and back, using stretching, breathing and deep tissue techniques to release tension.
These techniques can be Add-ons or an entire treatment!
Just as it sounds, Ashiatsu (Japansese for foot-pressure) is a deep massage that uses body weight pressure to stimulate your body's meridians (pathways of energy). This massage is a perfect 10-minute starter to loosen tough muscles or if you'd feel more comfortable having a whole massage done while in your pajamas (like Thai massage). But don't worry about the depth of pressure, it is always tailored to your needs.
Reflexology is a manual therapy focusing on the feet. An ancient Chinese practice that teaches that different areas on your feet and hands correspond to other parts of your body, and massaging them stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself and help the body relieve pain and stress.
Smell the Roses
Aromatherapy - this light massage is more concerned with the absorption of essential oils than the of manipulating muscles. We use an oil, custom to your needs, in light, long, continuous stokes relax your body and mind, which can be good when used before a deep tissue session, or as its own relaxing massage. We only use essential oils in coconut or jojoba carrier oil.
