types of massage
Swedish Massage: As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep Tissue: A deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Prenatal: Expecting? Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Chair Massage: Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically shorter in length and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is done over clothes and doesn’t require any massage oil.
Reflexology: Involves the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body

Frequently Asked Questions
How should I prepare for my visit?
Dress comfortably and prepare to RELAX. Don’t be afraid to give your therapist feedback regarding pressure of touch, the temperature of the room, music volume, lighting or any other concerns you might have. Be sure to drink plenty of water after your treatment.
Should I remove my undergarments?
This is a personal preference. Your therapist will keep you appropriately covered so that you feel comfortable.
Do I need to tip?
Gratuities are always appreciated by our therapists. A 15% tip is customary and you are welcome to give cash directly to your therapist.
Are gift cards available?
Yes! We sell gift cards online that you can use toward a massage in our Wellness Center.
What if I am late or need to cancel?
Arriving late will limit the length of your service. Your treatment must end at its scheduled time so that we can accommodate the next scheduled guest. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please give us 24 hours notice for a refund.
What is the advantage of choosing a 60 or 90 minute massage over 30 minutes?
The average full-body massage treatment lasts approximately one hour. A 90 minute massage allows more time to concentrate on certain areas. A 30 minutes massage only allows time for a partial massage session, focusing on a specific area, such as neck and shoulders. Many people prefer a 60 to 90-minute session for optimal relaxation.
How will I feel after my massage treatment?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience a significant decrease in aches and pains. Many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days. If you received a deep tissue massage, you may be slightly sore the next day, much like a good workout at the gym. Sometimes a hot shower, or a soak in the tub can ease this soreness. After your session, you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body’s tissues hydrated and healthy.
Do you offer couples massage? Currently, we do not offer couples massage as space in our Wellness Center is limited.
