Nothing spells relief to the expecting mother like a caring and soothing massage! Great for those tired and sore low back muscles and swollen legs. Our therapists have received special training and are qualified to give prenatal massage.

Additionally, we have specialized pregnancy tables designed to maximize comfort and well-being of both the mother and baby!
The most beneficial for the serious athlete. The therapist combines both deep tissue and firm Swedish. The deep work focuses on the muscles related to the client’s athletic activity. The vigorous Swedish strokes help reduce “next day” soreness in overworked muscles and rid the body of lactic acid build-up. This will not only enhance endurance and performance, but will reduce the recovery time following injury.
A specialized technique that places smooth, heated basalt stones on specific acupressure points on the body to help “melt away” pain, stress, and muscle tension. Traditional strokes of Swedish massage are used as the heat from the stones help muscles release more quickly. Our therapists are specially trained in using a variety of polished stones for facial, back, hand & foot massage.
This technique incorporates long and soothing strokes designed to improve blood flow, relieve tension, and put the body in a wonderful and peaceful state. This massage is “full body” and the pressure may vary from a lighter touch known as “pure relaxation”, to a stronger pressure referred to as “firm Swedish”.
This is generally the most popular massage available. Combination techniques incorporate a “blend” of Deep Tissue and Swedish massage, for the purpose of treating certain areas of muscle tension or “spasms”, as well as general relaxing circulatory techniques used in the Swedish style.
