Massage, like yoga has a whole host of health benefits; the two together are a recipe for optimal health and well-being…mind, body and spirit. 

Our therapists are experienced in various modalities so you are sure to find exactly what you need!

Massage used to be available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in businesses, clinics, hospitals, even airports, and, lucky for you in yoga studios!

The purpose of Swedish massage is to bring pure relaxation to the body by manipulating the muscles with long, gliding strokes that follow the direction of blood that’s returning to the heart. 

Lotions and oils are often used to minimize friction between the therapist’s hands and your skin in order to  to move or activate the skin. 

Swedish massage will not only  relax but also aids in the  repair of overworked or injured muscles. 

Having regular Swedish massage will enhance your circulatory system, bringing more oxygen to your muscles, tissues and other parts of the body.

The Raindrop Technique (RT) is a special technique  used to apply essential oils (we use Young Living Oils) to the body to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone of the body at a cellular level  boosting the immune system, bringing the body into structural/electrical balance, and enabling the release of toxins or disease wherever they may be lodged; including those illnesses lodged in the mind and emotions.

The seven single essential oils used include:

Oregano
Thyme
Basil
Cypress
Wintergreen
Marjoram
Peppermint
2 essential oil blends; Valor (Energy Balance) and
Aroma Seiz (muscle relaxation).

The oils can continue to work in the body for up to one week following RT, often with continued re-alignment taking place during this time.  Therefore, evaluation of the benefits received from RT may take several days to assess.

60 Minutes – $85.00*

Pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs.

Prenatal massage is a natural touch therapy for this unique time in a woman’s life filled with new experiences, heightened excitement, mixed emotions and significant physical changes.

The massage therapist ensures the mother’s body is properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby. Not recommended in the 1st trimester and a release from your doctor is required prior to the massage.
