Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage focuses on a traditional Swedish style massage that is gentler on the body and uses more techniques to relax the mind and calm the energy within.  Sending the client into more of a state of Zen.


Relaxation/ Deep Tissue Massage

Relaxing Swedish style massage that balances the mind/body/energy.  The amount of pressure is catered to you... depending on your body's needs. Aroma therapy, a hot heat pack and table warmth are all included with every massage service. 


Deeper tissue work can also be incorporated into this massage with the intention of really working out the trouble areas using trigger point release, neuromuscular techniques , miofascial release, and passive stretching. 


Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue massage really focuses on the muscles that need deep focus using trigger point release, neuromuscular techniques, miofascal release and passive stretching.


Prenatal and Postnatal

Ladies, you get to lay on your belly for once during your long pregnancy!  Side laying is also an option for some. We know how uncomfortable and sometimes painful pregnancy can be, let us help.  For those of you post birth, lets get your bodies back into that symmetry your body longs for.
