MELLOW MASSAGE $75.00
This is what is known as the Swedish Massage and is the most common or basic type of massage therapy. The therapist uses long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle tissue. Generally, Swedish massage techniques are used in a session geared towards relaxation and general muscle tension relief. If you are super stressed out and just want to get into a calm state of mind and maybe fall asleep, this is the massage for you.
THE THERAPEUTIC $85.00
The Therapeutic Deep tissue massage targets the 2nd and third layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist applies slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. This massage is customized to what the patient needs.
Ah~Shiatsu literally means foot pressure. This type of massage originated in India and used in most asian countries around the world. The therapist uses bars that hang from the ceiling for balance while using her feet and heels, allowing muscles to quickly warm up, relax and lengthen while lightly adjusting muscles simultaneously. It can be for relaxation or it can be an extra deep tissue massage depending on your preference. This can be applied as an add on at the beginning of any massage for some basic compressions or stretching.
HOT STONE $95.00
Hot stone therapy is an ancient method that dates back to when Native Americans warmed stones by fire to ease muscle aches and pains. This treatment has evolved over time by massage therapists and is used to help melt the tension in your muscles and promote a state of deep relaxation.
MELLOW MOMMA $85.00
This massage is for expectant mothers and reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension -- which aids in better sleep -- and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes. The lay position will be different and is primarily lighter pressure but can still target hip and low back issues as well when your body changes. Also relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). Only for soon to be mothers that are in their second and third trimester.
THAI REFLEXOLOGY $95.00
Foot massage is an ancient Chinese massage and has been in use for more than 3,000 years. The theory is that the sensory nerves of the body’s inner organs are spread throughout the body and are connected to the most superficial layer of the body, such as the skin. All sensory nerves are rooted primarily at the bottom of the foot. Massaging and pressing specific points on the soles of the feet associated with particular organs produces a therapeutic effect in corresponding parts of the body, helps stimulate activities of the inner organs and improves blood and lymph circulation.
Massage techniques combines acupressure, lower legs stretching, massage from the feet up and including the knees, reflexology using a wood stick aided by massage cream and oil. This is deep work for the feet. Sugar scrub and hot towels wrap the feet at the end.
TRIGGER POINT RELEASE $10.00 Add On
This modality is fantastic for specific issues like headache relief and severe muscle tension. Ever wake up in the morning and you can't move your head to the left or the right? TP release can assist in issues such as that. Its a deeper pressure to specific point of the body that refers pain to another area of the body and releases that pain and tightness. Also great for people suffering from Sciatica. Typically used in the therapeutic massage.
FIRE CUPPING $10.00 Add on
Cupping is an ancient alternative medicine that involves putting special cups on the skin for a few minutes to generate suction.
The therapist puts a flammable substance like alcohol, herbs or paper in a cup and lights it on fire. Once the fire goes out, the cup is placed upside down on the skin. A vacuum is created as the air inside the cup cools, which causes the skin to rise and for blood vessels to expand. The cup is usually left in place for about 5 to 10 minutes. Its like an inverted deep tissue massage. It bring the blood up through the muscles to the superficial layer and promotes heat and blood flow. Its great for adhesions, scar tissue, and knots. It helps keep you looser, longer. :)

THAI MASSAGE STRETCHING
