Massage Menu

Tuina/Therapeutic Massage: – 55 minutes, $95
Tui Na is the oldest known system of massage.  "Tui Na" translates as "push pull" and is the name given to Chinese medical massage. Based on traditional Chinese medicine, it incorporates techniques that are similar to Western and Asian massage, chiropractic, osteopathic, and western physical therapy.  Tui Na uses a variety of hand techniques and passive and active stretching to restore correct anatomical musculo-skeletal relationships, neuromuscular patterns, and to increase the circulation of Qi ("life force"), and blood to remove biochemical irritants.  Acupoints may be selected to re-balance and harmonize the flow of qi and blood through the "organ meridians" (energy lines that circulate the qi throughout the body) in order to facilitate healing and prevent further injury.  Tui Na is a great bodywork modality for the maintenance of optimal health and the prevention of disease.  Any musculo-skeletal disorder, including shoulder problems, joint pain, back, hip, thigh, knee, and lower leg and ankle disorders, may benefit from Tui Na.  Tui Na is appropriate for both acute and chronic pain.

Hot Stone Massage: – 55 minutes, $95
This is our signature massage, one that takes you on a journey of healing and relaxation. We use smooth, polished lava stones which provide deep heat therapy.  The stones are combined with a luxurious massage that totally loosens tight muscles, relieves tension, and completely relaxes your body. Deliciously scented oils enhance this journey.  Extra glasses of water are recommended in the twenty-four-hour period following this treatment.

Therapeutic Massage: – 55 minutes, $95
A massage customized just for you! Allow our therapists to design the ideal combination of techniques to concentrate on areas that require special attention, such as neck and shoulder or lower back. This blend of treatments can relax you, speed recovery from fatigue or injury, or be used to invigorate.

Therapeutic/Hot Stone Combination Massage: – 55 minutes, $105
Our Therapeutic Massage with the added benefits and pleasures of heated stones.

Pregnancy Massage – 55 minutes, $95.00
A special version of our Swedish massage, with extra time given and attention paid to wherever you need it most, using essential oils safe for pregnancy and positioning for the greatest comfort.
