Swedish – a system of therapeutic massage which
includes long, flowing strokes to massage and exercise the muscles and
joints. This technique has been shown to be helpful in reducing pain,
joint stiffness, improving function in patients with osteoarthritis, and
Deep Tissue – Noticeably loosens muscles, alleviates pain, and increases mobility. In today’s society where tension runs rampant, deep tissue massage has grown in popularity because of its ability to stimulate, condition, and heal. Athletes, patients who have sustained physical injury, those with carpal tunnel, chronic pain and fibromyalgia (to name a few), find deep tissue massage beneficial in getting below the surface of the top muscles to deeper, tighter areas. This is not for everyone, as there can be a day or two of soreness following the massage because of the technique and pressure used for tight muscles. Also keep in mind that what one calls deep, another may call light.
Myofascial Release – a manual massage technique that stretches and releases bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles to help eliminate or alleviate pain. This usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.
Trigger Point Therapy – Targets hyperirritable, painful spots referred to as trigger points. Trigger points “refer” pain to other parts of the body and are located in a taut band of muscle fibers. These points took a while to develop and are often areas of chronic “holding”, so it will likely take more than one massage to get rid of them, in addition to some education on how to move in different ways to keep them from recurring.
Lymphatic – A delicate massage used to stimulate the body’s lymphatic system, helping to improve metabolism and elimination of waste and toxins. Because our lymphatic systems have no central pumps, they depend on muscle contractions to move fluid. Lymphatic massage helps increase the lymph flow, which helps remove harmful substances (toxins and bacteria) from tissue and increases immune function. Good for cases of edema, sports injury, people with sluggish immune systems, or those suffering from lack of energy. A strong immune system makes you feel balanced, happy and whole.
** Royal Thai Herbal Poultice – The Herbal Poultice Massage is a relaxing, deep heat medicinal muscle treatment. The ritual dates back to 14th Century Thailand when hot packs were used to heal war-soldiers returning from battle. It is highly recommended for all athletes because of its ability to reduce joint and muscle pain, increase flexibility and reduce swelling. It is very beneficial for increased circulation and lymphatic flow, also aiding in digestion and detoxification. The treatment is broken down into 3 parts: the Royal Thai Massage, the Herbal Poultice application, and the Aromatherapy Massage. During the Royal Thai Massage, pressure is applied to acupressure points to release blocked energy. Then follows the herbal poultice application where a warm, herb-filled poultice is applied in a kneading fashion to the body. The finishing touch is a soothing massage given with the energizing Blue Ginger Aromatherapy oil.
** Hot Stone – Used by ancient cultures and Native Americans to improve overall mental, spiritual, and physical wellness, this style of massage therapy uses heated stones placed at specific sites on the body to promote relaxation and to help open up the meridians (energy pathways). While tension melts away in this calming atmosphere, stress, deadlines, anxiety, and other life annoyances dissipate long enough for the mind to relax at the deepest level. Insomnia is often cured because of the ability to put the mind at ease, and it is said that depression can also be helped by hot stone therapy. Benefits include promotion of deep muscle and tissue relaxation, alleviation of stress, release of toxins, pain relief, and increased circulation.
Warm Goat Milk Massage - This is a restorative goat milk massage with a dry brush exfoliation. Goat's milk has long been recognized as a natural skin moisturizer and rejuvenator. People who suffer from skin allergies, winter itch, eczema, psoriasis, and dry or sensitive skin greatly benefit from using goat milk lotion because its nutrients are easily absorbed by the skin. Since the pH level is similar to ours, it helps protect our skin from invading bacteria and chemicals we come in contact with every day. Goat milk is loaded with calcium, phosphorous, naturally occurring sodium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin B, pantothenic acid, biotin, choline, and many other trace elements. Vitamins A and D give skin strength and suppleness, while the exfoliating alpha-hydroxy acid in the milk smoothes and softens skin, leaving it rejuvenated for a younger appearance. When you use products made with goat milk, you are nourishing not only your skin, but your whole body benefits.
Pregnancy – Not only does the benefit of human touch include comfort, love, and awareness, but it can help alleviate aches and pains. Enjoy tranquil relaxation while receiving relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and pain in the lower back, neck, hips and legs that are commonly experienced while pregnant. Increased circulation can help reduce swelling, and reduced stress on weight-bearing joints is a plus. Pregnancy massage requires special training to ensure that the mother and child are comfortable and safe, and that positioning for their safety is done right. Ask for a therapist who is specially trained in pregnancy massage, to ensure the safety of you and your child.
Reflexology – Reflexology promotes relaxation, improves circulation, stimulates nerves, soothes tired feet and encourages overall healing. In Eastern medicine, reflexology is used to bring balance to the body by manipulating certain points on the hands and feet that correlate to glands, organs and other areas of the body. Stimulating these reflex areas can promote health in the corresponding areas by unblocking stagnant or blocked energy pathways. A scientific explanation is that the applied pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system or release natural chemicals, such as endorphins, that reduce pain and stress.
Sports Massage - A sports massage session is a quick 15 to 30 minutes of warming up key muscles in preparation of endurance or intense exertion for optimal performance. In addition, it is recommended within an hour or two for post-event recovery to help the body normalize by relaxing the muscles, releasing lactic acid and preventing soreness or cramping. Sport massage also focuses on increasing circulation and the prevention and healing of muscle and tendon injuries. It is very beneficial for those with chronic pain such as frozen shoulder, tender joints from running or other injuries causing limited range of motion.

Ear Candling - Used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Tibetans, ear candling is an effective method for removing ear wax build-up, fungus, yeast infection, bacteria and impaction from within the ear canal. A hollow candle that tapers at one end is placed in the ear. The opposite end is lit, with the heat creating a “chimney effect” causing hot air to rise and creating a vacuum in the ear to draw out what resides there. Candling (or coning) can also help regulate sinus pressure, assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, migraines and restoration of equilibrium.
