OTHER SERVICES

Regardless of the type of massage you want, we believe your massage needs to be as unique as you are.  One type of massage does not fit all. Therefore, our therapists offer sessions using techniques from various massage modalities.

 

Drawing on extensive training, your therapist will incorporate elements from numerous techniques to ensure that you receive the type of massage that is best suited and most effective to your needs on any particular day. We partner with you to create a customized session. Our client’s modesty is always respected; we take great care when draping.

 

Confused? If you are confused by the various offerings described here, do not worry. Your therapist will work with you on the day of your massage to create a wonderful relaxing and therapeutic experience based on your unique needs. While we have therapists who specialize in many forms of body work all of our therapists can provide excellent Swedish and deep tissue work. We are also happy to answer any of your questions if you call for further information.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands that map to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on particular areas the therapist creates relaxation and addresses areas of concern.

The therapist will use intuition to guide this two-hour session. It will be based on what the therapist feels is needed and may include many different approaches to unlock the body.

This is an opportunity to truly relinquish control and let the therapist be your guide to wellness.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapy dating back at least 2,000 years. Since 1950, cupping therapy has been applied as a formal modality in hospitals throughout China and elsewhere in the world to relieve pain and to treat various diseases.

Cupping is a technique that uses small cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin. The cups can be left in place for up to 20 minutes (“fixed” or “stationary” cupping) or gently moved across the skin (“gliding cupping” or “massage cupping”). The suction in the cups draws the skin and superficial muscle layer into the cup, loosening muscles, encouraging blood flow, and sedating the nervous system.

Cupping is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin, releasing toxins, clearing blockages, and opening circulation, improving lymph drainage. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and fibromyalgia pain. Cupping can also be used to break up cellulite.

Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available with no harmful side effects. However, temporary skin discoloration may occur following the therapy.

 

Also available as a session add-on.

Trauma

We have two therapists, Allison and Jette, who work directly with trauma. They have both studied with Brigit Viksins and taken her Alchemical Alignment couses.  Each therapist approaches the work in a unique way and work with the client’s unique safety system to ensure that their nervous system is allowed to relax, thus  allowing enough time, space and respect for the healing to take place.  The therapists approach may differ slightly but both work with tremendous concern and respect for the client’s over-activated safety system and facilitate the client’s relaxation.  It is in that stillness and calm that occurs that the healing occurs. Gentle hand placement and softly spoken words of encouragement allow both client and therapist to track progress.

 

This work is most often done while fully clothed so please wear loose fitting comfortable clothing when coming in for treatment.
