Our Massage Therapy Services

Relax & Restore Massage

  • 90 Minute Relax & Restore Massage: $95

Our relax and restore massage service creates balance in the body, relieves tight muscles and is a great tool for self-care and to relax the entire body. This service is beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility, while easing tension. Treatments will be infused with therapeutic grade essential oils. 

Deep Tissue Massage

  • 60 Minute Deep Tissue Massage: $75
  • 90 Minute Deep Tissue Massage: $110

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to relaxation massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension, increasing flexibility and targeting problem areas. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Prenatal Massage

  • 60 Minute Prenatal Massage: $65

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of therapeutic massage ­– to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation, release hip pain and sciatica – but is also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly to fit the needs of each pregnant woman.

Postnatal Massage

  • 90 Minute Postnatal Massage: $95

Postpartum bodywork is an effective and holistic approach for the many adjustments to motherhood. Massage is well known for relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief, and other health benefits. Unique postpartum benefits include hormone regulation, reduced swelling, better sleep and improved breastfeeding.

Youth Massage (under 12 years of age)

  • 30 Minute Youth Massage: $45

This massage is for infants and the pediatric population. The massage is shorter and also specific to what the child is able to tolerate, and based on the massage therapist recommendation.

Sports Massage

  • 60 Minute Sports Massage: $75
  • 90 Minute Sports Massage: $110

Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice, focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.

Hot Stone Massage

  • 60 Minute Hot Stone Massage: $95
  • 90 Minute Hot Stone Massage: $135

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.

Aroma Touch 

  • 60 Minute Aroma Touch Service: $75

AromaTouch is the application of certified, pure, therapeutic grade, essential oils to the spine and soles of the feet to address stress, inflammation, pain, immune system support, and help the body to come into a state of balance. The oils are gently stroked in with specific, light touch.

Reflexology

  • 60 Minute Reflexology Service: $75

Reflexology is a therapeutic method that promotes overall health and wellness, while also relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. During this therapy, a gentle pressure is applied to defined pressure points on the feet and hands. These pressure points are believed to connect through the nervous system to bodily organs and glands; thus, a stimulation of these points creates symptom relief, including reduced pain

Myofascial Release

  • 60 Minute Myofascial Release Service: $75

Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome, a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body, but may be source areas of pain or tightness. During Myofascial release, pain reduction is achieved through releasing tightness and tension over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points.
