Deep-Tissue Massage 60 minutes/$80
Deep-tissue massage concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep-tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments, especially chronic pain. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep-tissue massage loosens tight tissue clusters and can help alleviate muscle tension, which is often a side effect of chronic pain. By easing stress and tension, deep-tissue massage can help lower blood pressure.
Swedish Massage 60 minutes/$70
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension and boosting the immune system.
Hot Stone Massage 60 minutes/$85
Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 90-minute hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full-body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
Thai Massage 60 minutes/$80
Thai massage is an ancient healing system that comes from Thailand. Traditional Thai massage seeks to provide a full-body experience while harmonizing and aligning the energies that flow all throughout the body. Thai massage is similar to acupressure in that it utilizes the concept of special pressure points that, when stimulated, have a lot of positive medicinal effects on the body. Of course, since the points are merely pressed instead of poked with needles, they are not subjected to as much stress. Thai massage is performed from the feet to the head. The body is moved and in the process, certain body parts will be stretched and loosened. This process can improve flexibility, making Thai massage great for athletes and others who engage in physical pursuits. It is also a great form of therapy for those who have been injured or suffer from stress.
Combination Massage 60 minutes/$85
Combination massage integrates more than one style or massage modality. It will combine techniques from Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, reflexology, trigger-point therapy and hot stone. These combinations are used to tailor the massage toward your personal preferences and specific needs. A combination massage is a great choice for someone not as familiar with massage. It can help you discover your preferred massage technique in one quick session, or to enjoy multiple modalities at once. In addition, certain combinations are said to amplify the healing effects of massage. For example, a Swedish massage combined with a hot stone massage may increase circulation and metabolism more quickly than using only one style.
Reflexology Foot Massage 60 minutes/$60
Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology can promote good health and prevent illness as we as it relieves symptoms of stress, injury and illness. We work from maps of predefined pressure points that are located on the feet. These pressure points are reputed to connect directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands. Your reflexologist manipulates the pressure points according to specific techniques of reflexology therapy. Any part of the body that is the source of pain, illness or potential debility can be strengthened by reflexology -- applying pressure at a certain foot location.
