HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot Stone Massage uses pressure applied with heated stones that have been worn smooth with time. Natural heat relaxes and sooths your muscles, easing tension and relieving pain. Strain and anxiety melt away, leaving you feeling balanced and rejuvenated.
Cupping therapy is an ancient practice used to treat deep muscular issues. It is a technique where the therapist uses glass 'cups' as a tool during the massage to create a vacuum on the skin. This 'vacuum effect' creates suction that softens tissues, releases toxins and increases circulation. Cupping is not painful but the client should expect to experience slight surface bruising due to the nature of this work.
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage such as relief of tension and relaxation, but it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.

Refresh yourself fast with a rejuvenating chair massage. The University of Pennsylvania Office of Health Education says "even 15 minutes of massage to the neck, back, arms and hands can increase circulation, returning energy levels." For this type of massage, you keep all of your clothes on. The massage chair gives the massage therapist easy access to your neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands and head.
Reiki is a deeply relaxing treatment developed in Japan that has been practiced for thousands of years. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing to encourage emotional or physical healing. You lie on a massage table and remain clothed while the Reiki practitioner places her hands on or above areas of pain, tension, or dysfunction. Each treatment is tailored to your needs.
Shiatsu is an eastern massage modality which seeks to release and facilitate the flow of vital life energy, known as Qi. Shiatsu incorporates a number of massage techniques and stretching positions. The client should wear loose comfortable clothing (not jeans please) to each session as they will stay fully dressed and need to be able to move freely. The Therapist will assess imbalances in the client's body and help the client find harmony by working corresponding meridians. Each session may be tailored to relieve specific symptoms (both physical and emotional).
