Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as gliding, kneading, tapping, rolling, and friction at mild-moderate pressured strokes that flow over the muscles. It targets pain, stress, stiffness and injuries. This promotes healing, pain relief, stress release, it can improve circulation, it soothes the nervous system, boost your immune system and eases muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Treatment
Similar to the Swedish strokes it also includes stripping, friction and slow deep gliding pressure. By using knuckles, elbows, forearms, and thumbs this helps to reach the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. This firm and therapeutically soothing treatment milks out toxins, relieves chronic pain, breaks up adhesions, promotes scar tissue healing, increases flexibility, and ROM. 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 will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Prenatal Massage Treatment
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 (reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression), the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, improve labor outcomes and newborn health, improved breathing and relaxation.
In-Home Chair Treatment
Always on the go? Never have enough time? Only need a target area focused on, or just can't sit still for an hour? Let this 30 minute treatment intervene in your busy schedule to get in that much needed dose of Self Care. This is perfect for when you need a quick "pick me up" to get you through the rest of your day. Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair in your home or office. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule. Choose the focus that YOU need!

Health & Wellness at Work?!
On-Site chair massage can be held for any event like Company Picnics, Employee Appreciation Day, Corporate Events, Sales Promotions, Rewards Programs, Sporting Events, or Weekly/Monthly Basis for Employees. Unmanaged stress, both physical and mental , causes numerous health problems. High stress levels and soaring health care costs are taking their toll on employees and their companies. Treating employees with massage can decrease muscle tension, boost immune system, and release stress, while preventing the development of serious injuries. Incorporating a Wellness program lowers the number of workers compensation claims, increases energy levels and concentration, decreases absenteeism, boosts productivity, and enhances moral. We design our customized chair massage programs exclusively for the corporate world. A quiet room on-site is needed to work quietly and efficiently to avoid any interruption to the office workflow. Clients remain fully clothed, and no oils will be used that can stain clothing. When done on a consistent basis, you will be amazed at the healthy transformation even ten minutes a week makes. Employees will experience an immediate and lasting sense of physical well being, and mental clarity.

If you have a fever, have been in the hospital, have been vomiting or had diarrhea within 24 hours of our appointment, please call to reschedule. There will be no charge for these types of cancellations. Clients who repeatedly cancel last minute will be asked to pre-pay for future appointments and refusal to provide valid credit card information will terminate our relationship.

- Arriving Late - Your appointment time has been specifically arranged for you. If you arrive late your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your Therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the "full" session; however we will do our best to satisfy the scheduled time if it permits at our discretion.
- NO-SHOWS - Anyone who either forgets or consciously forgo their appointment with no contact, will be considered a "no-show". They will be charged the FULL amount for their "missed" appointment and future service will be denied until payment is made.
