Traditional Massage

Swedish Massage
An effective therapy which helps in your overall well being when the goal you seek is greater relaxation and a peaceful connection. Swedish Massage is manual manipulation of the body's superficial soft tissue for the purpose of enhancing circulation to restore or maintain your health and overall well being. It aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all cells in your body an cleanses the body's tissue of cellular metabolic waste. Swedish massage also relaxes tense muscles, soothes and sedates the nervous system, increases respiration, reduces swelling from the accumulation of fluid in the extremities, and calms and soothes both emotional and physical stress. Swedish massage also assists in the removal of toxins from the body's tissue. Adding regular massage to your natural stress management routine can be extremely beneficial in calming and soothing both emotional and physical side effects associated with excess stress.

Pregnancy Massage
There are many benefits to having regular massage during pregnancy. It can help many minor ailments experienced during pregnancy, such as achy hips, backache and heavy sore legs due to fluid retention. It can also help with the emotional preparation for giving birth. Massage calms and slows the heartbeat, lowers the blood pressure and brings a sense of balance and equilibrium to the body. Massage also improves psychological health. Studies show massage reduces feelings of stress and anxiety, and enhances feelings of well-being. Calm mothers equal calm babies. Recent studies have shown that hormone regulation is also improved. Balancing hormone regulation has led to fewer complications during birth and modern therapeutic massage is now a popular aid to pre-natal and post-natal care. Pre-natal pregnancy massage aims to reduce the discomfort and pain caused by the constant growth of the baby and resultant changes in weight distribution around the mother's body. This can lead to problems with the neuromuscular system causing muscle aches, joint stiffness and cramps, as well as stress and insomnia. Post-natal massage aims to restore the elasticity of stretched skin and muscles to their pre-pregnancy state while also helping to aid relaxation and increase energy levels. Our therapists have specialty training in the field of massage so you and your baby are in safe hands.

Specialty Massage

Lomi Lomi
Hoʻoponopono (to balance mind, body and sprit or to make things right). Having healing energy to flow freely is the ultimate goal of this massage. Long strokes flow around the body like water. This healing art form uses rhythmic, flowing forearm strokes as well as the hands. Experience from light to deep manipulation with unbroken fluid stokes to relax muscles, increase circulation, and promote overall well-being. The Hawaiians view all aspects of the body as one and believe that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual are all part of the "whole" self - when healing is effected on one level, all levels are affected. As you yield your body to the healing energy, we invite you to allow this unique style to transform you to a deeper state of relaxation.

Hot Stone
Using basalt stones, high-density rocks with an exceptional ability to store heat, hot stone massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but also enhances lymph flow, removes toxins, and fortifies the immune system. The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody, and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones and is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain, and sore muscles. Experience a deep sense of relaxation while the soothing and restorative properties warm you and bring you to a more tranquil state.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a corrective bodywork modality focusing on the deeper layers of muscles within your body. In a deep tissue massage, our therapist will first warm up the superficial layers of muscle and then apply a strong pressure combined with a variety of techniques to the targeted underlying (deep) muscles. It is an intense technique designed to relieve tension and restore the muscles to optimal functioning. This technique is very effective in releasing chronic patterns of tension in the body, breaking up adhesions (knots), breaking muscle spasms, elongating shortened muscle fibers, addressing and eliminating scar tissue, increasing range of motion, correcting postural issues and imbalances. Both active and passive movements and stretches may be included as necessary means to enhance your treatment. In addition, heat and cold may be applied for therapeutic purposes.

Medi - Massage Cupping
MediCupping™ Is a modality that's great for everyone. Our bodies are a "walking history" of our lives. Every injury, illness, surgery and even the toxic substances that the body has been exposed to from conception forward may still be present in the tissues. The body has to store that which it cannot process and eliminate. The result is an accumulation of materials such as old medications, inflammatory agents, cellular wastes and acids in stagnant lymph fluid.

Massage Cupping is an amazing, healing modality adapted from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves the use of cups moving over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. The suction reaches deep into the soft tissue, the lifting technique is the "separation" that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue and the elimination of old waste and congestion. It has become evident that separation and drainage of fused, congested soft tissue produces an increase in tissue and systemic function and is a great catalyst for change in health.

Each body reacts uniquely to this accumulation of debris and stagnation, and after very few sessions, the tissues can finally absorb water and nutrition and retain a healthy moist state. This enables elimination of new wastes that can otherwise re-accumulate and cause allergies, inflammation or sensitivities. Another benefit of this technique is increased vascular integrity and stimulated collagen production to aid in toning flaccid tissue. A unique quality of these modalities is the "lifting without force." Even when working on deep scars and adhesions, fibrous tissue, or fascia that has retained memory from incident or injury, the technique is comfortable and works very quickly.

Massage Cupping can feel extremely relaxing. The pulling action of the cups engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment.

This treatment can be a stand alone service or an enhancement with advanced bodywork techniques such as Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy massage cupping can instantly release rigid soft tissue. Numerous conditions respond beautifully to massage cupping including;

  Anxiety
  Trauma
  Deep tissue and structural issues – old injuries and chronic movement patterns
  Arthritis, Tendonitis, Bursitis
  Scarring – old, new, keloid, post-surgery
  Loose skin and old deposits from weight loss
  Lymphoedema – general and post-surgery
  Fibromyalgia -- sedating effect on the nervous system.
  Sports – injuries and post-event conditions
  Diabetes
  Cellulite
  Vascular issues – spider veins and varicosities
  COPD
  Parkinson's Disease
  IBS -- sluggish colon
  Acid Reflux
  Smoke -- Fire exposure

Shirodhara

60 minute Session $95

From the Sanskrit words “shiras” (head) and “dhara” (flow), shirodhara is the gentle, constant application of warm oil on the third eye or ‘ajna marma’, an area where nerves are highly concentrated, just above and between the eyebrows.

Shirodhara, an intensely healing and relaxing technique, begins with warm, nutritive oil flowing onto the center of your forehead from a beautiful copper vessel. As the soothing oil flows from the forehead and over the scalp, your mental tension and mind chatter flows away. A soothing scalp and neck massage follows, encouraging a state of uplifting emotional well-being.

When the warm oil is being gently poured on your forehead, it induces a deep state of relaxation, calms the nervous system, and stimulates the endocrine system (pituitary gland). It is the most divine treatment there is and nothing rivals it in terms of its effects besides an established mediation practice.

It’s a treatment that melts away stress and tension in both the mind and body.
