Soothing Swedish Massage (60, 90 or 120 minutes)
Lighter, smoother, flowing style of massage with long, gliding strokes to provide overall relaxation. Sometimes simplicity is key, and the Swedish massage style is a sweet, simple, soothing experience. As one of the most recognized types of massage, it’s perfect to help your mind, body and spirit unwind and de-stress. Let these lavish and luxuriousness of this Swedish style banish your cares and worries while resetting your body’s natural rhythms.
Luxurious Hot Stone Massage (60, 90 or 120 minutes)
Using heated, polished, basalt stones, warm soothing ayurvedic oil, relaxing aromatherapy and lavish Swedish massage strokes, the tension just melts away. The intentional way that the stones are placed on the body for warmth, as well as, using the stones to perform massage strokes on certain sections of the body in a gentle, luxurious way do wonders for a tight body and busy mind.
Transformative Sports Massage (60, 90 or 120 minutes)
Incorporates some of the basic Swedish massage strokes along with additional lengthening the muscles with very researched, specific stretches to unlock stuck areas, decompressing overused joints, increasing range of motion, releasing muscular knots through myofascial release and trigger point therapy, and cultivating a deep feeling of expansion and ‘ahhhhhhh’. Whether you work at a desk job, drive for long periods of time, carry young children, are a care-taker yourself, a weekend warrior, competitive athlete, or have repetitive, on-going, physical challenges of any kind, this very therapeutic style of massage is very transformative.
Injury Focused Massage (60, 90 or 120 minutes)
We fall down, we get back up, it happens! Whether you are dealing with an old injury or new injury, or have tried about everything else on the planet, an Injury Focused Massage could be what you are looking for. Using advanced techniques, specific anatomy and kinesiology education, and a well-versed understanding of how impact, trauma and life can cause havoc in our bodies, our therapists partner with you to create change and healing. Adding massage to your physical therapy or rehabilitation program can speed up your healing process and get you back in the game of life! Breaking up muscle adhesions and scar tissue can make a huge difference in your movement and healing as well.
*Because of the focus on the injury, some parts of the body may need to take a back burner while other areas become the higher priority, or a longer session length may be advisable.
Pampering Prenatal Massage for Moms-To-Be (60, 90 or 120 minutes)
Motherhood can be a wonderful, beautiful period of time while we’re bringing new life into the world. But sometimes it can be stressful, confusing, uncomfortable and challenging too. Let us ease you through it in a supportive, caring way. After the first or second month of a normal pregnancy all the way through to birth, a nurturing, gentle, massage from a therapist well-versed in pre-natal massage is advantageous for mother and child. Check with your doctor first, if you have any concerns. A soothing, calming, flowing massage will iron out achy muscles, help relieve nerve compression, joint pressure and tension for the mother as her body continues to change. Your baby will also receive the circulation improvements and calming effects as well, so both of you can relax more deeply and enjoy this amazing experience together.
*Body positioning changes and bolstering with extra pillows will be necessary at the baby grows inside the mother’s womb.
Massage and Bodywork Add-Ons
Any of these Add-Ons, individually or mixed with other modalities below, can become a 60-120 minute session on their own if you choose.
If you are unsure about what to add on, or what type of massage you want, our therapists will talk through the options with you when you come in and create a personalized session you will love!
Would you like Light, Medium or Deep pressure for your custom blended massage? Each person interprets massage pressure differently, one person’s Light could be another person’s Medium to Deep. If you’re not sure, don’t worry, we will figure it out with you once you are on the massage table, determine what pressure feels most comfortable to you and keep that pressure level consistent throughout your massage session.
By very gently releasing tension and compression in the cranial bones of the head and face, along the vertebrae and sacrum bone at the end of the spinal column, flow happens. It’s like a computer re-boot for the central nervous system and increases, balances, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid that runs between the occiput and sacrum bones at each end of the spine. This very special modality is great for migraines sufferers, car accidents and trauma victims, eye and ear challenges, allergies, anxiety, PTSD and overall stress relief.
Every gland, internal organ, muscle group, joint and skeletal section of the body has a highway of nerves that run through the body and the end point is located in the soles of the feet. (hands too, actually) By accessing very specific acupressure points on the foot we can create change and balance in the corresponding parts of the body. It’s pretty mind blowing, indeed! If that part of the system is overactive or underactive, reflexology will help balance it using our body’s own self intelligence and healing response. The pampering, tranquil feeling it provides you is the icing on the cake.
This gentle and amazingly powerful energetic healing modality came out of Japan originally until it was eventually shared around the world. Energy exists all around us in every living thing. Every cell in our body, every molecule that exists in even the desk you’re seated at, or the seat you’re sitting in has it’s own unique vibration. Reiki channels the energy that is all around us, through the therapist’s hands and then moves throughout your body. This energy is self-intelligent and goes directly where it’s needed most in your body. The therapist’s hands will still be touching the body but not necessarily be manipulating muscle tissue, so you can remain clothed if you so choose. Reiki provides a path for the body to release stress, trauma, imbalance, pain, and more, on every level; physical, emotional and mental. From babies still in utero, to the elderly, to athletes, soldiers coming back from war, to everyday folks, Reiki is extremely beneficial, transformative, relaxing and healing.
The mind-body-spirit connection is well documented and undeniable. By walking you through an extremely customized guided visualization and/or meditation created specifically for your unique wants and needs, change IS possible. Whether you are wanting to help heal a physical ailment, work through a traumatic experience of any kind, shift into a healthier life/lifestyle, makes changes to your belief systems, or internal dialogue with yourself, or sink into a very deep state of relaxation, we partner with you to help bring that into existence. What we can create, see, and feel inside our mind helps our body move in the direction of the new normal by resetting our internal ‘compass’ towards this new map we made inside our minds. What journey can we take you on today?
