Swedish Full Body Relaxation Massage
Benefits:  Shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system while soothing the nerves themselves. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as a component of a regular program for stress management.


BEYOND:

Services Listed in Alphabetical Order

Acupressure
Benefits:  Stimulates the body's own recuperative powers by stimulating the various points on the body.  The stimulation removes energy blockages by diffusing the toxic build-up that accumulates in the muscle tissues.  The accumulation of toxins causes stiffness throughout the body.  Stiffness in muscles puts abnormal pressure on nerves, and blood/lymph vessels.  The pressure on blood and lymph vessels affects both skeletal systems and internal organ functioning.

Aromatherapy
Specially formulated massage oil may be used in the massage to heighten relaxation services. I use only organic scented oils in my grape seed aromatherapy massage oils. You may also request a dry massage if you wish. Oil may be used in all massages except for chair massage.

Barefoot Shiatsu
Benefits:  Promotes relaxation, releases tension and holding patterns, increases flexibility, and strengthens energy flow.

​Cupping Massage
Benefits: Helps reduce pain and inflammation, increase blood flow, promotes relaxation and well-being, and is a great technique for deep-tissue massage.

Foot and Hand Reflexology
Benefits:  Relieves foot pain and back pain.  Reflexology is very beneficial for people with diabetes.  There have been documented positive effects for infertility, stroke, digestive problems and hormonal imbalances.  It is also effective in relieving symptoms of stroke, asthma, glaucoma, and many other ailments.  Reflexology is preventive foot and hand care that maintains health, vitality and strengthens immunity.

Polarity and Chakra Therapy
Benefits:  Polarity therapy unblocks and recharges the flow of life energy known as "Chi", and realigns unbalanced energy.  Tapping into the power of the chakras brings in the universal life-force and allows it to flow through the body’s systems for optimal well-being.

Prenatal Massage
Benefits:  Reduces stress levels, stretch marks, swelling of feet and ankles, and pelvic pain. Improves skin elasticity, sleep, and digestion. Relaxes and soothes baby. Eases back and foot pain caused by changes in posture.

Thai Yoga Massage
Benefits:  Relieves tension headaches, reduces types of back pain (typically subacute and chronic nonspecific back pain), relieves muscle pain and spasticity as well as joint stiffness and pain, increases flexibility and range of motion, stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage, boosts energy, and calms the nervous system
