Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep tissue massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that are released from the deep tissue during the session. ~ $90 / 60 minutes
Hot Stone Therapy
Smooth river rocks are designed by Mother Nature. When heated and placed on the body they alleviate tension as well as stimulate skin and restore fatigued musculature. Stones are carefully placed on chakra points as well as full body (if you so desire) and left to cool. A relaxing massage follows stone therapy, leaving you in wonderland. ~ $120 / 90 minutes
Seasonal Adaptation Massage
Come be nurtured from all that ails you due to Mother Nature and the shift with seasons. This massage begins in the prone position (face down) with essential oils (eucalyptus, peppermint, etc.) to help relieve sinus congestion.

As you move into the last half of this massage you'll enjoy a facial steam while receiving shiatsu on the sinus points. Reflex points on the ears, hands and feet are also manipulated. You will leave this massage feeling like a breath of fresh air! ~ $95 / 60 minutes
Swedish massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. ~ $90 / 60 minutes Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. In addition, since the elderly don't typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression. ~ $90 / 60 minutes Pregnancy massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, pregnancy massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. Special bolstering with pillows and other aids are used to comfort the client during the different trimesters. ~ $90 / 60 minutes
Infant massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically to promote the healthy development of your infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a healthy thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are numerous. For example, many infants show improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Infant massage has also been shown to improve the quality of a baby's sleep, as well as strengthening their immune system. ~ $25 / 30 minute training session for parents
Sports massage is designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reducing pain and swelling in the body, relaxing the mind, increasing flexibility, and dramatically improving recovery rates. Sports massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function. I have worked with many different athletes, including triathletes, marathon runners, and cyclists. ~ $90 / 60 minutes
