SERVICES


Therapeutic Massage

I will use a variety of techniques that I have been trained in such as Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, massage cupping, medical massage, sports massage and stretching.  These techniques are designed to help reduce stress and muscle tension, rehabilitate from an injury, unconstrict muscles, improve range of motion, reduce pain and improve overall health and well being.

  ​​
Hot Stone Massage

Take a minute to visualize yourself on the table with stones, warmed to 140 degrees, lying comfortably on your back. Trails of heat flowing deep within the body, swirling along the spine, radiating through the shoulders and neck, flowing down the legs to the feet. Lingering just long enough to melt the tension from each and every muscle. The relaxing nature of Swedish Massage, while the therapist holds the stones, facilitates the flow of relaxation throughout the body, mind and spirit.

Massage Cupping

In this treatment, a cup is positioned over the area of the body being treated and suction is created using a vacuum gun. My cups are made of plastic, glass and silicone. The suction level can range from light to heavy, and the movements performed by the therapist can be stimulating and very sedating. Cupping is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws inflammation out, moves stagnation of blood and lymphatic fluid, can improve respiratory conditions, loosen adhesions (knots), lifts connective tissue, brings hydration and blood flow to body tissue and drains excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. This is a great alternative for someone who needs deeper muscle work but doesn't like pain sometimes associated with deeper pressure.

There is no cost for this treatment, the cups can be used as needed within the time frame of your session.


Reflexology

The theory behind reflexology is that there are nerve endings in the feet, hands and ears that relay messages to different areas of the body. This is achieved by using applied pressure to specific pressure points and reflex areas.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses fragrant oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance the benefits of massage. Choose from one single oil or a unique blend and it will be added to the massage lotion.

Add Aromatherapy to any massage for $10.00


Dead Sea Mud for the back

This treatment is for your back and uses mud from a cave deep under the Dead Sea.  It is used to draw out impurities, rehydrate, and re-mineralize the skin.  It also can be used to help ease arthritic pain. The mud is warmed, painted on and after 10-15 minutes of drying, wiped away with hot towels. It is a very rejuvenating and relaxing treatment.

Add this treatment to any massage for $15.00


Infrared Sauna

Infrared saunas have been shown to assist in weight loss, pain management, skin purification, detoxification, and stress reduction.  Infrared saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions.  The carbon far infrared sauna therapy surrounds the body and penetrates deeply into the joints, muscles, and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.  Natural body healing with infrared saunas lead to a healthier lifestyle for you.  If you are a first time user, please do not book this service until you have spoke with me and read through the advisements and contraindications.  If you have a medical condition, on medication, under 18, elderly, pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a sensitivity to heat, consulting with your doctor before hand may be required.
