Treatments Offered

60 Minutes

$120.00

Cupping Therapy

This is a vacuum suction to the skin with the use of plastic or silicone cups to pull stagnant blood to the surface to allow better circulation and it is also a great tool to help break up adhesions and restrictive tissue.

45 Minutes – 60 Minutes

$125.00 – $145.00

Pregnancy Massage

Massage is a great choice for pregnancy as it promotes relaxation and treats aches and pains that happen from the pregnancy posture and the release of elastin, a hormone that loosens up the joints and creates extra movement and can cause pain. We will provide ways to help through the process and assess and make sure to provide safe treatment. We have the pregnancy prone pillow that most people find extremely comfortable as they will be allowed to be treated face down in any stage of their pregnancy. The pregnancy pillow has a concave feature for the belly and the breasts and proper neck support. The therapist will instruct how to get on and off the pillow and will lower the table.

Thai Herbal Ball Massage Therapy

Thai Herbal Ball massage uses a herbal compress containing a combination of healing herbs along with massage techniques to give you a soothing and relaxing massage. The herbal balls used are warmed to provide a powerful and therapeutic treatment that combines aromatic, herbal, and thermal therapies to treat stiff and sore muscles with a deep heat to induce relaxation and relieve stress.

Honey Massage

This traditional technique is perfect for boosting overall well-being, especially if you’re dealing with poor circulation, swelling (edema), weak immune system, nervous system issues, migraines, osteoporosis, or scar tissue. Honey Massage helps detoxify the body, ease lymphedema symptoms, alleviate joint problems, positively affect the skin, and aid in weight loss.  Note, however, that it’s not suitable for individuals with cancer, asthma, thyroid issues, vein problems (varicose veins), or allergies to honey. 

Heated Muscle Scraper

Used to scrape the skin to increase circuation, decreases muscle pain and breaks down scar tissue. The tool heats up and vibrates, leaving redness and tiny spots that go away after a few days.

Tuina Massage

Also called Chinese massage, involves techniques focused on manipulating pressure points and applying deep strokes to relax and rejuvenate tired muscles. This type of massage uses similar techniques as acupuncture but without the needles. Instead, the practitioner uses their hands, elbows and knees to apply deep pressure and manipulate energy channels called meridians.  Tuina massage benefits the whole body by improving blood circulation, stimulating the lymphatic system, relaxing muscles and promoting natural healing. It can help reduce stress, stiffness, swelling and inflammation. Tuina massage is also known to alleviate pain from conditions like arthritis, back pain and headaches. Regular sessions can boost overall energy levels and balance the flow of qi or life force energy within the body.
