Infrared Sauna Sessions
Infrared saunas are a lovely, affordable, and effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light, felt in our bodies as heat, is produced naturally by the sun, has the ability to warm you from within and penetrate deeper into tissue than traditional dry-heat saunas. These combined factors produce a host of anti-aging health benefits, making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” home therapies for overall healthier living. The benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to help your body get back into balance and achieve your wellness goals. They include: detoxification, relaxation, weight loss, pain relief, blood pressure reduction, increased circulation, wound healing, skin purification, faster muscle & soft tissue recovery and increased immunity. Sauna sessions are wonderful add-on to massage treatments or Pilates sessions to induce the relaxation response, warm up the muscles OR complete the treatment so you feel fully flushed and rejuvenated!

Classical Pilates teaches and honors the original exercises of Joseph H. Pilates while tailoring the workout to the clients' individual needs and experience level. This brilliantly crafted program allows you to connect your mind to your muscles like never before and learn as you move! The emphasis is centered around building a strong "core" (abdominals, spine, back, pelvis, neck, etc). Pilates priciples work to enhance daily postures and activites, increase mobility & strength, find body awareness AND support a more pain free, vibrant life!
Ashiatsu DeepFeet Bar Therapy
Ashiatsu is a unique, deeply therapeutic and somatically luxurious form of bodywork. "Ashi" meaning foot and "atsu" meaning pressure, together, symbolize this gravity assisted barefoot massage technique which incorporates the most effective and healing elements of massage!
Parallel bars are used above the therapist's head for balance and perfection of pressure. Compression is individualized to the clients needs at all times and combines flowing strokes that can span from heel to head in one sinking, sweeping motion. More specific movements are intended to melt away tension and trigger-points, smooth and stretch fascia, increase joint range of motion, and create structural changes in chronic soft tissue disfunction. Areas of the body that respond particularly well to this form of massage include the spine, lower back, hips, glute muscles, legs, mid and upper back, shoulders, occipital attachments, forearms, hands and feet. Clients step off the table feeling lengthened, lighter, detoxified, aligned, and able to go about their daily activities with greater ease. This is truly an experience you don't want to miss!

Trigger Point Therapy "NMT"
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension that refer pain and/or sensations to other areas of the body. "TP's" are similar to acupressure points except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. The effects of this work are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Neuromuscular therapy is a system of massage techniques that were developed in the 1930's by Dr. Stanley Lief in England. It uses a holistic approach towards healing, emphasizing and stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Neuromuscular therapy also enhances the function of joints and muscles, and accelerates the overall healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. Specific body pillows, wedges and pregnancy pillows are used to support comfort in supine (face up), sidelying, AND prone (face down) positions so every important area of mom's body can be addressed with ease.
Hot Stone Therapy
Melt away stress and body-aches with a form of massage that utilizes deeply heated basalt lava stones. These ancient stones are placed at specific sites on the body-such as the hands and feet, chakra centers, lower back, shoulders, and neck - and are also held in the therapist's hands to preform the massage. The warmth from the stones, combined with slow, intentional movement deepens relaxation, softens muscle tissue, and promotes nourishing blood flow and circulation for an overall grounded and peaceful state of being. Typically, muscles that are manipulated and heated with these stones release tension, trigger points, and stress more quickly, with less pressure, and on a deeper level. The overall experience is calming, grounding, luxurious, and immensely therapeutic.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Plenty of water should be ingested before and after to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Swedish "Relaxation" Massage
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation and calm the central nervous system. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, lengthen and tone muscular tissue, increase range of motion, and rebalance the body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Lomi Lomi is the Hawaiian word for "massage", and it is part of a larger native Hawaiian tradition of healing and natural body care. According to Hawaiian tradition, all living beings are seeking a state of balance and love in the world. During a Lomi Lomi session the focus is on not only relaxing your body through gentle flowing touch, but also reviving your spirit and filling your body with the energy of love.
