Massage

Getting a good massage is one of life’s pleasures! 

 It’s a necessity for those who experience chronic pain & aches and a way to feel good for the rest of us.

 

New to massage? Not sure what to select? See our list of modalities below to see what might work best. When you book your massage just select the time frame you would like and choose which modality you would like to incorporate. Some techniques do have an extra charge.

 

Psst.....If you’re going straight to your massage without soaking in our HydroTherapy tub first, you’re not getting the full benefit for your time and money. Take a soak in the tub before your massage for 15-20 minutes and you’ll enjoy a better massage, guaranteed.

Heat Therapy

Involves the use of smooth, heated stones. ... The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort.

Release Tension

Eases the muscle tension in the neck, jaw, and shoulders, which can cause headaches in the first place. Studies have shown that massage reduces the frequency of migraines and even reduced pain in the midst of an active migraine.

Relief

Focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
