Deep Tissue Massage – Designed to access the deeper layer of muscles and connective tissue, this technique generally uses a firmer pressure to release chronic muscle tension. Often this technique is applied to focused trouble areas of the body.

Swedish Massage – This more relaxing style of massage uses long sweeping strokes to help increase the body’s blood and lymphatic circulation and to relieve stress.

Trigger Point Release – A technique often used during a deep tissue massage, trigger points are generally dealt with through constant pressure on top of the tight fibers within the muscle.

Prenatal Massage – A very beneficial way to relieve discomforts that normally come with being pregnant, prenatal massage uses many of the same techniques as any other massage.  Your therapist is specifically trained, as there are additional contraindications with prenatal massage. During the second and third trimesters, special bolstering is used to keep the client comfortable on their side.

Hot Stone Massage –  Smooth, flat rocks that have been heated are used as an extension of the therapist’s hands to work deeper into the muscles as the heat relaxes away the tension.  The stones may also be placed at different places on the body to heat up an area.

Spa Facial – A relaxing spa experience designed to exfoliate and balance the skin while allowing you to relax and de-stress.

  • Anti-Aging Treatment –  An additional product incorporated into the facial designed to reduce the signs of aging.

 

Sugar Scrub Treatment –  Gently pamper your skin with this sweet exfoliant. An Ayurvedic oil blend combined with brown sugar contains natural fatty acids that help feed the skin. These nutrients help reduce the signs of aging by increasing elasticity and firming the surface of the skin. This full body treatment will begin by removing impurities to improve skin health and is followed by a customized massage to lock in the moisture.

Cupping Therapy – The combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.

  • Facial Cupping –  Customized cups are used to apply negative pressure to the face and neck without the use of chemicals. The facial tissue is gently lifted to increase circulation and stimulate lymph drainage, increasing oxygen and nutrients and eliminating waste and toxins. This technique minimizes fine lines and puffiness, working best after several sessions and alongside a healthy diet.
  • Cupping Blanket— 20 to 30 cups are placed across the shoulders and whole back to create a ‘blanket of cups’.  They remain on the back for 15 to 20 minutes while aiding in all the great benefits that cupping as a whole does.
  • IT Band Release— Cups are placed along the gluteal region and down the back and side of the upper leg. This treatment is great for runners or those with hip issues.
  • Abdominal Cupping— Cups are moved along the abdominal region to help aid in digestion. This helps to clear out waste that may be built up in the digestive system.
