FROM THE EAST:

Japanese Hot Stone Massage – hot basalt river stones are used to create a state of deep relaxation and healing in the body. This style of massage, based on Anma (the oldest form of East Asian massage) treats the whole body, mind and spirit. Hot stone massage can be gentle and calm to relieve stress or deep and penetrating to reduce back, neck and shoulder tension.

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy – Ashiatsu is an adaptation of an ancient form of barefoot massage using a combination of deep compression and gliding strokes. Overhead bars provide stability for the therapist. The amount of even pressure that is applied to the body by the feet can rarely be achieved by the hands alone. Ashiatsu is recommended for those in need of stress reduction as well as for the relief of chronic back discomfort. This versatile massage can be given using light, moderate or deep pressure. It is the therapy of choice for the seasoned client who never feels a massage is “deep enough.” 

Foot Reflexology – Reflexology reduces stress, promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being. It is a form of natural healing which has been practiced for centuries and is based on the Chinese theory that reflex points in the feet correspond to other areas of the body. Reflexologists apply appropriate pressure to these points to stimulate the flow of energy.  
This helps to relieve pain or blockages throughout the entire body. After enjoying a warm and soothing herbal foot soak, you will receive a very pleasurable form of bodywork.

Usui Reiki (ray-key) Reiki is an ancient healing art known as the Universal Life Force Energy. When the flow of energy within us is disrupted, our health and well-being are compromised. Reiki does not require any form of manipulation of the tissue or muscles. The recipient remains fully clothed while lying comfortably on a massage table. The practitioner’s hands are placed on or above the body in the recipient’s energy field. During the session, one may experience sensations such as warmth or tingling from the flow of Reiki energy. It can also provide an emotional release for some. 


Thai Yoga Massage developed in Thailand many centuries ago, Thai Yoga Massage is a comprehensive and interactive form of body work that is delivered with the hands, arms, feet and legs. It relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and helps to balance the body's energy meridians. 
The recipient is fully clothed and placed on a floor mat where the practitioner guides them through a series of yoga postures representing a harmonious and therapeutic dance. This healing art combines therapeutic stretching, joint mobilization, rhythmic rocking and acupressure. Thai Yoga Massage is easily adapted to benefit anyone, regardless of age, gender, anatomy or flexibility. 

FROM THE WEST:

Classic Western Massage – is generally regarded as the most common form of massage (Swedish or European Massage) combining long flowing strokes with gentle kneading and stretching to improve circulation, reduce stress and soothe tired or aching muscles. This form of massage is especially suited to those who prefer a lighter touch.

Deep Tissue Massage – is delivered using slow strokes and direct pressure. Friction is sometimes applied across the grain of the muscles. The therapist may use fingers, thumbs, forearms or elbows to work deeply into the muscle and connective tissue. Trigger point therapy, neuromuscular techniques and myofascial release may also be combined with this form of massage to treat chronic pain, sore or injured muscles. 

Prenatal Massage – Pregnancy is a time of major physiological, psychological, spiritual and social change for women. Regular massages during pregnancy benefit both Mom and Baby by supporting the circulatory system, increasing cellular respiration, reducing edema and calming the nervous system. Pregnancy massage can alleviate neck, back and sciatica pain, reduce anxiety, promote relaxation and sleep and help to prepare the body for the impending labor.

 Sports Massage is a highly refined combination of Classic Western (Swedish) and Deep Tissue Massage that is specially adapted to the needs of athletes and the effects of athletic performance. Sports massage is both preventative and therapeutic; it aids in the prevention of injury, improves flexibility, enhances performance and speeds the recovery time for overtaxed muscle tissue. These testimonials are validated by a great many professional and world-class athletes.
