A single massage session has been shown to lower heart rate, insulin, and stress levels, and recovery continues long after the massage is over. Regular massage therapy helps improve overall circulation, posture, range of motion, and general wellness. Our professional massage therapists have a thorough understanding of touch, pressure, and kneading techniques to bring about physical and emotional alignment.

Bodywork massages are the most rigorous massages, and are also known as deep tissue, sports, and pressure point massages. Among the more general benefits of massage, bodywork massages release muscle tension, providing deep pain relief by loosening scar tissue and lengthing muscles. They are ideal for overuse and chronic injuries, for improving flexibility, and promoting circulation.

Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that touch, when appropriately manifested, can activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being. While the mechanics of Reiki are just beginning to be understood, the benefits have been known for almost a century. One person’s Reiki experience may differ greatly from the next, however, nearly everyone feels a sense of deep relaxation after each treatment. Reiki energy gently encourages the body to let go of fear, tension, anxiety, and other negative feelings while inviting in a state of peace and balance. The results can range from a more enlightened sense of well-being to a glowing radiance that is nearly palpable.
Reiki treatments complement many traditional and Western medicines, and are often a supportive way to help make other medical efforts more effective.
Hot Stone Massage
Combining the use of hot stones with one of our massages helps deepen the relaxation properties of a massage, thereby increasing the healing benefits. The use of heat expands blood vessels, making the body more receptive to self-healing. We find that hot stone massage is particularly helpful for clients with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other chronic pain conditions as the stones help relieve the pain and tension often created by strained and contracted muscles.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using pure, natural essential oils for health and healing purposes. Essential oils are concentrated extracts removed from the roots, seeds, leaves, and flowers of plants. These oils have been used by humans for almost 6,000 years to help reduce anxiety, boost energy levels, enhance healing, improve digestion, and among many other benefits. Whether inhaled or applied to the skin, aromatherapy oils can enhance your massage experience by allowing you to access a deeper level of healing.
