Massage induces relaxation, increases circulation, and improves self-awareness. Our clients tell us that after treatment they sleep better, move with greater ease, have more energy, and laugh more.
We tailor your treatment to your particular needs. We use a variety of techniques to address what ails you on the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level.
Our clientele comprises blue collar workers, healthcare professionals, corporate executives, academics, marathoners, dancers, grandmas, granddads, moms, dads, and teenagers.
What We Offer
Massage therapists typically use Swedish massage to induce relaxation and a feeling of general well being. Following a rhythmic protocol that aids in creating a feeling of serenity, the massage therapist will work on one part of the body at a time, using light to medium touch in long, superficial strokes (effleurage), followed by slightly deeper and shorter cross fiber strokes (petrissage), and finishing with more effleurage. It may also be appropriate to use light drumming (tapotement).
A word of caution: Clients sometimes say they want a full-body deep-tissue massage. Deep-tissue work over the entire body in one session is a very unpleasant and unhealthy experience for the client and the massage therapist. These clients probably have in mind a firm Swedish massage.
Hot Stone Massage
Pregnancy and Labor
Fifty. Sixty-two. Sixty-five. Maybe even seventy. There is a range of ages in the US that denote “seniority,” depending on who’s doing the labeling and why. Whichever age you decide makes you a senior, massage can help alleviate the muscle and joint discomfort that tends to creep in as we age. Massage can help enhance the effects of a lifetime of good habits and help counteract the effects of a lifetime of bad habits. It’s not a luxury. We are tending to live longer—in more and more cases, nearly twice as long as that early marker of 50. Massage can help make that second half of life more comfortable, active, and enjoyable.

We are happy to accommodate your time constraints with shorter sessions; longer sessions are also possible. The type of work is always calibrated to your needs.
The number of sessions you may need will vary. For short-term, acute stress, one session may provide significant relief. For accumulated stress, clients should notice an immediate improvement, but it may take as many as four to six sessions to begin noticing enduring relief. In any case, clients should consider maintenance/wellbeing massage no less than once a month.
Our signature treatment is 75 minutes, allowing a comfortable pace for a full-body massage with deeper work on a particular area (such as the back or feet or neck and shoulders). This session includes hot towels on the feet and hot rocks on the back.
I thoroughly enjoyed the massage and will be continuing to schedule regular sessions! I highly recommend!Great Massage!
