This massage treatment originated in Japan. Its purpose is to promote self-healing and encourage a state of equilibrium.

Prenatal Massage: Pregnancy

Trigger Point Massage: Movement
This massage aims to reduce pain and increase movement. Therapists apply specific techniques to help soften, lengthen, and strengthen muscles.
Sports Massage: Recover And Refuel
This massage is specifically designed to meet the recovery and preparation needs of athletes. The therapist treats soft tissue aches, pain, and injuries by focusing on these areas of the body, so that the athlete can achieve recovery from past exertion, as well as prepare for the fitness feats ahead.
Hot Stone Massage: Deep Relaxation
By using smooth, heated stones on the body, this added heat allows the body to more fully relax. The heated stones, in combination with the therapist, warm tight muscles more quickly and more deeply than a traditional massage.
