Modalities Described

Swedish Massage
Reward yourself and destress with a truly relaxing treatment that will dissolve the strains and tensions of everyday living. Tune inward and enjoy as the therapist utilizes different relaxation techniques such as gentle stretching, long gliding stokes, kneading, and percussion stokes, addressing the superficial layers of underlying fascia. Oil will be applied to the skin.
 
Connective Tissue Massage (Deep Tissue)
Also known as Deep Tissue, this technique addresses the deeper layers of fascia surrounding whole muscles, as well as individual muscle fibers. A specific focus is paid to adhered muscle fibers (knots), and chronically shortened fibers (trigger points) with deep, slow strokes applied both generally and locally. A reserved amount of oil or lotion is applied to provide greater resistance for the therapist to achieve maximal results.                                  

Prenatal Massage Therapy
Pregnancy is a beautiful and exciting time in a family’s life, yet a demanding one for the expectant mother,
physically, mentally, and emotionally.  As the months of pregnancy progress, so do the stresses on the body and mind as the mother-to-be undergoes drastic structural and hormonal changes. Prenatal massage is aimed to ease the process for the expectant mother, addressing the strains experienced, while catering to the special accommodations a pregnant body needs at all stages of pregnancy. A great gift for yourself or for others.

Thai Yoga Massage

Click above to learn more about this session which some find as restorative as massage. It is done with the clothing on and without oil by a certified yoga instructor.

*Please note that all massages are licensed, professional, and therapeutic variety. We do NOT offer what is sometimes called "sensual massage." 


Tipping
If you feel that your therapist provided outstanding service and you would like to express your gratitude by tipping it is  appreciated. If your therapist is on staff they are not receiving your full payment for themselves.  Tips often amount to a significant portion of many massage therapists overall earnings. Of course, if your budget does not allow for this added expense you are under no obligation to and you can simply express your gratitude for exceptional service verbally.

Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy is a way one may strengthen  health in a holistic, non-invasion fashion. Improved connective tissue health, increased local and general circulation, lowered blood pressure, decreased stress, stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system and sensory skin receptors, increased muscle relaxation and joint range of motion, improved elimination of metabolic wastes, and increased body awareness are just some of the advantages.


What To Expect From a Massage Session
Before the massage begins, the client will fill out a short intake form. The therapist and client will discuss specific goals for the session, and any other concerns or preferences the client may have. The therapist will then take the client into the treatment room, where there will be a place for the client’s belongings. The therapist will leave the room for a few minutes as the client disrobes to their level of comfort, and gets comfortable on the massage table, covered by a soft sheet. The therapist will knock to see if they are ready before re-entering the treatment room. The massage is accompanied by soft relaxing music, and a serene environment. Throughout the massage, the client remains covered by the sheet, leaving only the body part being worked on exposed. Generally, the massage is done with a moderate amount of oil. Throughout the session the therapist will be open to feedback regarding the pressure being used, the area being focused on, etc.

The massages we offer are a full half hour, or full hour, and do not include the time before the massage begins or after. We therefore kindly ask for our clients to come 10 minutes before the scheduled session.
