Types of Massage

Ashiatsu
Meaning “Foot Pressure” in Japanese, Ashiatsu allows the therapist to use more pressure, more comfortably than most Deep Tissue massage. By using feet as the massage tool while standing on the table with the client, the therapist is able to utilize gravity and bodyweight resulting in a much deeper massage. Parallel bars suspended from the ceiling allow the therapist to maintain balance. This also provides a way for the therapist to moderate the amount of pressure by pulling their weight up, or by pressing against the bars. The pressure is applied more evenly and over a larger surface area than when using hands, fingers, and elbows, resulting in a more comfortable massage. This modality is especially useful for chronic pain of the back, shoulders, and hips.  Upgrade your Ashiatsu by adding aromatherapy.
Swedish
Swedish massage is the most common massage practiced in the United States. This massage is considered a deeply relaxing treatment using light to medium pressure. The focus of Swedish massage is gentle manipulation of the soft tissues including muscles, fascia, and tendons. Increased circulation of the blood and lymph, promotion of the immune system, and a general sense of relaxation are the main benefits of Swedish massage. The therapist will craft a treatment using a variety of techniques to ensure a deeply relaxing, healing, and unforgettable experience. All of our Swedish massage sessions include steamed aroma towels and three of our favorite essential oils- lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus.
Upgrade Swedish massage by adding deep tissue, aromatherapy, or hot stones. 
Deep Tissue ($10/hour extra)

Request upgrade in the “Notes” section when booking online or inform spa coordinator when booking by phone.
Working to affect the deeper structures of soft tissues of the body, the therapist will release the tension of the superficial muscles first. After identifying tension and trigger points that have accumulated more deeply, more aggressive and intense techniques will be used to alleviate the issues. This technique is best received when the client is in good health and well hydrated.
Aromatherapy ($10/hour extra)

Request upgrade in the “Notes” section when booking online or inform spa coordinator when booking by phone. Using the powers of plant essences to achieve desired changes to the emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies is an ancient tradition. Our oils are all certified organic oils from Mountain Rose Herbs. We ask that you arrive early to answer a brief questionnaire so that we may choose the appropriate oils to encourage healing and wellbeing. Some of the most common symptoms that can be affected by an aromatherapy session include anxiety, depression, allergies, muscle pain, and headaches.
Hot Stone Massage ($10/hour extra)

Request upgrade in the “Notes” section when booking online or inform spa coordinator when booking by phone.
Warmed basalt stones are used to help increase circulation, warm the muscle tissue, promote healing, and encourage relaxation. Larger stones are placed stationary on areas of tension in the same manner as a heat pack. Smaller stones are held in the therapist’s palm and actually used as a massage tool. The stones seem to mold to the contours of the body. The soothing sensation of the warm stones is a unique and superbly healing process.
Prenatal Massage
Request upgrade in the “Notes” section when booking online or inform spa coordinator when booking by phone.
Supporting an expecting mother is a great privilege for our highly skilled massage therapists. For most women, there is little or no risk associated with receiving massage during pregnancy, and the benefits are numerous. Whether you are looking for relief from the aches and pains, want to help reduce swelling, or just want a moment to relax, a prenatal massage is exactly what you need. Our therapists will ensure your comfort and safety using either our “pregnancy bolster” or a side lying position and will be sure to adjust the massage for your specific needs.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), also known as lymphatic massage, is a modality that encourages the lymphatic system to more efficiently uptake and process waste materials and toxins from the body. Many factors including illness, injury, surgery, or environmental toxicity can lead to a sluggish lymphatic system which can result in fatigue, immune deficiency, or a particular type of swelling, called lymph edema. MLD is performed with no oils or lotions, and uses particular manipulations of the skin to help encourage the natural movement of the lymphatic system. Most MLD sessions are approximately 90 minutes. $120

Currently, MLD sessions are available only by calling (405)701-2832.
