Designed for you

Every Massage Session is custom fit to meet your body needs! I incorporate both relaxing and therapeutic techniques using coconut oil and essential oils. We all manage life stressors differently, our body reacts differently, and will respond differently to touch as well. I do not believe in the theory "no pain, no gain". Massage does not have to be painful to receive results. My aim is that you feel restored after each session.

The studio provides an environment including live plants, soothing sounds, a fireplace and a himalyan salt lamp. I hope to create a healing, relaxing environment where your mind, body and spirit feels cared for.

Relaxing & Therapeutic

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.


TriggerPoint-Therapeutic

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. 


Geriatric Massage

Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elderly. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you are elderly, geriatric massage can help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to aging. Massage may help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.


Oncology Massage

Cancer & Massage

Massage can be safe and therapeutic during and after cancer treatment. An oncology trained therapist has completed comprehensive training in general massage therapy as well as additional specialized training that addresses the side effects of cancer or its various treatments. Even after people are out of treatment, receiving bodywork from an oncology therapist is important due to the potential for late effects of treatment. An oncology massage therapist will adapt massage techniques to safely meet the changing bodywork considerations during and after cancer treatment. 

Massage adaptations are required for: 
 Low blood cell counts  
 Blood clots 
 Bone metastases

Chair Massage $15/15 min

Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension in a specialized ergonomic chair. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule. 5, 10 or 15 minute sessions.
