Initial Appointment ~ In order to provide the best possible service to a new client the initial appointment provides a thorough assessment and discussion of health goals prior to the massage. You will then spend a full 60 minutes on the table receiving a massage completely tailored to you. You can expect to leave your appointment with a list of home care suggestions and a plan for continued care and maintenance for optimal health. 90 minutes
Relaxation Massage ~ Allow your body to return to a state of deep relaxation. The goal of this massage is to slow everything down so that the mind can let go and the body can fully relax. Feel your heart rate slow down as your muscles release their tension. 60 or 90 minutes
Therapeutic Massage ~ Need a little extra ‘work’ done? A therapeutic massage targets the deeper muscle layers, tendons, and fascia. This is a great treatment for specific injuries or rehabilitation projects. We can target certain areas for treatment or deal with the whole body in order to release chronic tension. A therapeutic massage is tailored specifically for each unique body. 60 or 90 minutes
Prenatal Massage ~ The woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy that can cause pain and discomfort in different areas. Regular prenatal massage can help to relieve most common aches and pains as well as keep mum relaxed and happy throughout one of the most transformational times in her life. Using extra cushioning helps to support the growing ‘bump’ over the months and allows mum to receive the most effective treatment possible. 60 or 90 minutes
Children’s Massage ~ (up to age 12) The growing body of a child can hold the same (and often more due to the constant growth) tension and pain as that of an adult. Many children are also athletes dealing with heavy demands on their soft tissues. The children’s massage is a shortened duration due to their smaller bodies needing less time to receive the desired results. Please speak to me directly if you have specific questions around massage and your child. A parent is required to be present for the entire duration of the child’s massage.
Hot Stone Massage ~ The deep moist heat of the basalt lava stones softens the muscles and allows a deep and soothing treatment. Knots and tension melt away. This treatment can be a 45 minute Back, Neck, and Shoulder massage or a 75 minute Full Body massage.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage ~ This is a therapeutic treatment using very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage supports the immune system and is useful at the change of seasons as the body adjusts to temperature and daylight changes. 60 minutes
