Massage Therapies



The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body.  By the end of your treatment you will feel so relaxed.....


hot stones

Hot Stones

Hot Stone Massage is often paired with Swedish Massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to soothe, warm, and massage your muscles. Hot Stones expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body.  Hot Stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote relaxation.  Allowing your body to relax and release tension and stress. 

Deep tissue

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage uses the same principles as Swedish massage, but the movement is performed slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrates on areas of tension and pain. Many people have occupations that encourage repetitive postures such as drivers, desk workers and computer operators.  This often promotes gradual development of muscular imbalance, pain, muscular knots and trigger points.  This type of massage is usually recommended for sports enthusiasts; people with chronic joint or muscle injuries; those performing repetitive work causing strain on muscles and joints; individuals suffering from stress.
