Choose Your Path to Relaxation
Our expert massage therapists can utilize many different effective treatment techniques and will go over your goals with you to determine which technique will help you reach optimal health.
Swedish-style Massage to Help You Unwind
Our team uses Swedish-style massage. This is the most popular massage technique and is designed to help the entire body relax. The movements of Swedish massage warm the muscle tissue to help direct the blood to the heart, increase oxygen levels, assist in circulation, and improve flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy vs Relaxation Massage
A deep tissue massage targets deeper muscles and connective tissue. It primarily focuses on stretching your fascia and penetrating deep into tissues using targeted pressure. This is more intense than a relaxation massage that uses more sweeping, less severe movements.
While deep tissue massage is excellent for managing chronic pain, helping improve posture, or assisting in the healing process after injury or surgery, massage for relaxation is gentler. It targets muscles and the circulatory system to help increase blood flow and relax muscles. If you seek tension and stress relief throughout your body, a relaxation massage is exactly what you need!
Cupping therapy uses silicone cups to cause a suction, or lifting, action over a targeted area. With the un-gluing and separating of tissues and fascia, cupping can increase circulation, reduce swelling, release tight muscles, and promote lymphatic drainage and muscle rejuvenation.
Aromatherapy Herbal Oil Massage
Pure essential oil blends are combined with your relaxation massage to ease tension in the mind and body. Each blend combines unique essential oils for their healing properties and chemistry. Choose from Muscle Mend, Headache, Arthritis, Rest Assured and 5 Minutes Peace.
