What is a Massage?

Massage is a gentle, relaxing spa treatment that involves rubbing, pressing, and manipulating your skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues. Our massage therapists use a wide range of motions and intensities, from light pressure to deep pressure, to alleviate your chronic pain and discomfort. If you experience discomfort and pain because of the overuse of muscles, physical activities, and underlying medical conditions, massage therapy can help you feel better.


Types of Massage

  • Swedish Massage: This is an extremely gentle massage using deep circular movements, kneading, long strokes, and vibration for relaxation and alleviating pain.
  • Deep Massage: This massage uses slower motions to target deeper layers of connective tissues and muscles to untangle tightened knots of overused muscles.
  • Prenatal: A loving and gentle technique is used to ease the discomforts of pregnancy. Common symptoms include swelling, muscle fatigue, and backache that can be reduced with massage while allowing the stress to melt away. Mom and baby are supported by pillows during this treatment to allow for a comfortable and restful experience. *If you are in your first trimester, please provide a Doctor’s Release in order to receive your massage.
  • Signature Massage: Combine multiple massage modalities: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lava Shells, Warm Bamboo, Cupping, and Aromatherapy. This “fusion” massage is ideal for clients to experiment with different modalities for ultimate relaxation.
  • Ice Massage: Similar to our deep tissue massage but with the implementation of a cold roller ball. This massage helps with injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tight IT bands, quads, hamstrings, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and back pain.
  • Lava Shell: Lava shell massage uses tools made of real crushed seashells and are filled with iron, magnesium, and lavender oil that provides a toasty heat lasting 60-90 minutes. This massage uses nature’s elements to improve your body’s energy flow and is created to deliver the perfect amount of heat to soothe tight muscles, work out knots, and ease the mind. The shape of the shell gives us the ability to apply a light pressure, or a very deep pressure if desired. Because the shells stay hot for so long, there is more hands-on time and less time switching out tools making this an ideal alternative to hot stone and warm bamboo massages.
  • Warm Bamboo: Enjoy the long-lasting warmth of multiple bamboo tools used to roll and knead the muscles. From light to deep pressure, it’s completely customizable. Imagine blending the benefits of hot stone massage, deep tissue, and foam rolling in one treatment. The best of everything to provide deep relaxation of mind & body.
  • Lymphatic Drainage: Within us all, there is a silent system at work to keep us healthy. That system is the lymph system. Lymphatic drainage therapy consists of a very light and gentle massage. Your therapist focuses primarily on specific lymph nodes and points of the body, as well as the natural flow of the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage is a process that will help reduce blockages of the lymphatic system, which in turn promotes a healthier body. *Currently doing laser tattoo removal? This massage would be very beneficial for you!
  • Lomi Lomi: Not traveling anytime soon? Let us bring the islands to you with this rhythmic, ocean wave-like, ultra-relaxing Hawaiian massage! Using continuous, long, rhythmic strokes with forearms and hands, to create a seamless flow, provides a deep sense of relaxation to help you drift away. Instead of targeting specific areas, this massage focuses on connecting mind and body as a whole to release tension, balance energy, and promote optimal healing from within.
