Traditional Massage

Swedish Massage

A nourishing and healthy way to experience relief from everyday soreness, tightness, headaches, and stress, Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.  A typical session consists of a relaxation massage designed to calm the body and mind with slow, deep long strokes, gentle rocking, and peaceful music.


Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage utilizes techniques found in both Swedish and Deep Tissue massage while using a more targeted approach that is supportive to soothe acute or chronic injuries, healing and returning balance to the body.

Deep Tissue Massage

Although similar to Swedish massage, it is also used to target knots and relieve chronic muscle tension. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and helping to eliminate scar tissue. The focus is on releasing the deepest layers of muscle tissues, tendons, and fascia.

Prenatal/Postnatal Mothers Massage

From the moment your baby is conceived, your body begins to transform and prepare for the miracle of birth. Mother Massage is an advanced form of massage therapy designed to support women from the first days of pregnancy through labor, and into motherhood with mindful care.

Your therapist has studied in the physiological effects of each stage of pregnancy as well as the psychological changes. They are able to work with each woman on an individual basis to give you the support you need and the relief you crave from the demands of pregnancy and mothering in a sacred space where you can feel safe and nurtured.

Sports Massage Therapy

Maintenance:  A regular program of massage to help the athlete reach optimal performance through injury-free training.

Event:  Takes place before, during and/or after competition to supplement an athlete’s warm-up before competition.  Will help reduce muscle spasms and metabolic build-up after vigorous activity.

Rehabilitation:  Effective in the treatment of both acute and chronic injuries incurred before or during competition.

Sports Massage Therapy

This is a soft tissue therapy that aims to release the myofascial sheaths, a web of interconnected tissue that wraps around the muscles, bones, organs, blood vessels, and nerves of the body. The massage therapist will manipulate the myofascial layer to release trigger points that have become stiff or rigid in order to relieve pressure and reduce pain.


Body & Energy Therapy



A healing modality that promotes deep relaxation, reduces stress and can help relieve chronic pain. Over time it helps bring balance into one's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioner for the client's highest good uniquely in each session, bringing the results a person needs that day.

The client may feel warmth, coolness, tingling, or nothing at all as the energy is moving through them, however, the energy vibrations are working regardless of what one feels. While the practitioner uses hand placements for optimal results, the Reiki energy always flows to the areas of greatest need so the person can be assured of receiving an energetic healing that is for their highest physical and mental good.

Reiki Fusion

The Therapist will use traditional massage techniques to relax and release tension and stress in the muscles and soften the tissues of the body. This will create an optimal reception of the more subtle Reiki healing energy. The Reiki will then deepen the relaxation, relieve pain, and promote mental and emotional healing, balance, and personal growth. Traditional massage coupled with Reiki stimulates your body's innate healing resources on the physical, emotional, and energetic levels, thus encouraging a return to wellness.

Restorative Yogic Therapy

To promote optimal conditions for the body to heal itself, you will be guided through restorative and gentle yoga postures that best suit your current individual needs.  To further stimulate the healing, relaxation response breath work, guided meditation, Reiki, and energy work are also offered throughout your personalized therapy session.

If you are looking to reduce stress, fatigue and muscle tension, boost immune function, lower blood pressure, enhance your digestion, improve attention, focus, and quiet the mind, then this therapy is for you.  One session will provide instant lasting benefits that remain for days thereafter.  Offer yourself the gift of Restorative Therapy today.
