Spa Relaxation / Swedish Massage
Light to Moderate/Firm Touch. A luxurious relaxing full body massage which may include a variety of massage strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. It may also include range of motion stretching. 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, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
Moderate to Deep Touch. Deep tissue massage relieves chronic tension and toxins from the body. This technique is effective for relieving pain from deeply held muscle tension such as back pain, chronic pain, sciatic pain, etc. Deep Tissue is different from Swedish Deep Tissue Massage in that the therapist does not use oil or lotion and works very slowly. The therapist works deeply in such a way as to encourage the body not to react defensively and the treatment is kept within the comfort range of the client. The purpose is to “un-stick” the fibers of a muscle while releasing deeply held patterns of tension, removing toxins, relaxing, soothing and thereby re-educating the muscle to operate in full capacity.

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands. Reflexology is meant to affect physical change in the body and reduce stress and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium. This pressure stimulates the senses and reinvigorates the body.

Total treatment time varies, but ranges from 30 - 45 minutes.

Detox Foot Bath Treatments
Detox Foot Baths are a great and pain-free way to detox the whole body, based on the premise that positive and negative ionic help rid the body of toxins via the feet. As your feet soak in the relaxing, warm water of the foot bath, a small undectectable current is sent through them generating positive charged ions. These positive charged ions attach themselves to the negative charged toxins in your body, thereby neutralizing them and allowing them to be discarded out through the bottom of the feet and into the water. Includes 20 minute mini-foot reflexology session.
Available beginning January of 2017.. Auricular Acupuncture Sessions!
Auricular acupuncture is one of the more widely used microsystems within eastern medicine. Microsystems use one aspect of the body - for example, the ears, hands or feet - to treat conditions that are present anywhere in the body. Auricular acupuncture may be used as a primary mode of treatment or in conjunction with other treatments such as acupuncture, bodywork or herbal medicine. At five designated earpoints in each auricle (outer ear), NADA-trained clinicians apply fine gauge, sterilized, one-time use stainless steel needles just under the skin, where they remain for between 20-40 minutes while the patient relaxes quietly in a comfortable chair. Includes consultation time.
