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.

Reiki a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force to remove blockages and restore your vital life energy. Sessions are done completed clothed.

Geriatric Massage is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly. This type of massage uses gentle and light application of massage techniques with oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without excessive friction to the skin. Geriatric massage has been shown to relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch-deprived elderly clients.

Trigger Point Therapy - A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referred pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Trigger point massage therapy is specially designed to alleviate the pain at the source through cycles of isolated pressure and release. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can alleviate a lot of stress associated with chronic pain.

Aromatherapy Addition – uses pure oil extracts such as lavender and peppermint added to your massage oil or cream to calm, revitalize, and rejuvenate your senses and your body. Aromatherapy Aromatouch - Uses 8 certified pure therapeutic grade oils that are applied and gently massaged on the back and feet. There is an additional fee for this service.
