Massage, the systematic manipulation of muscles and soft-tissue, has proven over centuries to restore and enhance our sense of well being and fitness – physical, mental and emotional. Besides reducing the negative effects of daily stress on your body, regular massage will help normalize blood pressure, decrease insomnia, strengthen the immune system and restore the elasticity of muscles and joints. While there are many ‘clinical’ proofs of the benefits, massage will prove itself to you when you experience it at its best. For a more transformative experience, pair your massage with a whole body vibration & sauna therapy treatment or PEMF therapy.
Our Licensed Massage Therapists have broad training and deep experience in many of the most popular modalities listed below. They have at least 200 hours of professional work experience after graduation. Meet our therapists

Swedish massage is the most common and best known type of massage. It involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and soft tissue with pressure that varies from light to medium to firm. This type of massage is considered to be one of the most relaxing styles. Your massage therapist will adjust the pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.
A no-nonsense massage that aims to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue condition. Sports massage can enable you to move your body more freely with more flexibility and in time can improve your posture. There are also specific protocols for sports massage immediately pre or post-event. As the name suggests it is popular with athletes, as it enhances performance, assists recovery and prevents injury. These are benefits we can all enjoy.
Deep Tissue/Trigger Point Massage
Deep tissue & trigger point is a more intense, focused massage. This technique uses slow, deep strokes as well as sustained pressure on trigger-points and is designed to relieve severe tension, resolve issues of discomfort and restore easy and pain-free movement. Your therapist will consult with you prior to determine areas of specific need, and will check with you throughout the session to keep the pressure within your comfort range. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for those who experience chronic pain, excessive tension and restricted range of motion.

CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses his or her hands to evaluate the cranio-sacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the cranio-sacral system. By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord, and enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct, CranioSacral therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment.
What conditions do CranioSacral therapy address?
Migraines and Headaches – Chronic Neck and Back Pain – Autism – Stress and Tension-Related Disorders – Motor-Coordination Impairments – Infant and Childhood Disorders – Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries – Chronic Fatigue – Fibromyalgia – TMJ Syndrome – Scoliosis – Central Nervous System Disorders – Learning Disabilities – ADD/ADHD – Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – Orthopedic Problems
It is easy to think of massage as a luxury to indulge on occasions, but one of the most beneficial times for massage may be during pregnancy. Prenatal massage is specifically tailored to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Carrying a baby inside of woman changes her center of gravity and puts a lot of stress on her back, neck, abdominal muscles and shoulders. Pregnancy also relaxes her ligaments, so that her pelvic joints are less stable, and changes her posture, pulling her pelvis forward. In addition, the extra weight she carries also puts stress on the lower back. Prenatal Massage is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness because it relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Thai Yoga Massage
Traditional Thai Massage, or Nuad Boran, is an Eastern healing system which utilizes acupressure, muscle compression, and assisted yoga postures and passive stretching to relieve tension, chronic pain, stiffness and loss of flexibility. The work can be anywhere from moderate to deep, but is especially useful for manipulation and release of deeper muscles. This is a truly rejuvenating full body treatment that will help relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, boost the immune system and balance the body energetically. This is an active massage with clothes on, no oils, and you work with the therapist on a floor mat.
