- MASSAGE TREATMENTS OFFERED -
Our "regular massage" is a full hour session. Your therapist will ask you to enter the room where you will undress & get on your stomach with a sheet to cover your body. She will ask if your ready & enter the room when your full hour will start. Let her know if you have any problem areas you would like her to work more on & if you'd rather not have oil. She will ask if the pressure is ok soon after your massage starts when you can let her know if you want it deeper or softer. Towards the end she will use hot stones, slowly gliding them over your skin that will work out the toxins & help you relax even more. She will use a warm moist towel to clean off the oil. When the bell rings you can get dressed & come out, have some water & relax. Then you can pay & tip the girl based on how the service was. Don't forget to make an appointment for the next time.
This classic European technique is the most common in massage therapy. Stress is eased with long, flowing strokes and muscle kneading. This firm, but gentle, full-body massage improves circulation, relieves muscle tension, and creates a heightened sense of well-being and relaxation.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
This therapeutic massage works deep into the muscle tissues, both along and across the muscle fibers. Slow, deep movements are used to release muscle tension, reduce scar tissue, and increase range of motion. This type of massage is recommended for individuals wanting more detailed bodywork on specific muscle groups.
This massage is designed to prepare muscles for exercise and to help them recover more rapidly for the next round of activity. This is a vigorous massage that includes stretching, friction, and range of motion techniques. This also helps with recovery after an athletic event.
We have ashiatsu set up in one of the couples rooms (please call us to make an appointment). The ladies are experienced in balancing on the overhead bars while controlling the pressure on your body with their feet. If you like deep tissue or a sports massage, you should give this a try. You can ask for them to work more lightly if you like the Swedish style more than a deep tissue. Using their bare feet, they glide over your body using deep long strokes that help elongate your spine, help drain your lymphatic system & promotes a state of well being while improving your posture. You can always switch to a regular massage if you wanted during your session & end with the hot stones. You can remain clothed for this if you prefer, let your therapist know.
Share the experience of well-being and relaxation by unwinding with someone special. Enjoy a massage side-by-side with your loved one. One of our couples rooms now has ashiatsu bars. Ask for this when you make an appointment.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
This ancient Native American treatment uses heated, smooth basalt river rocks to dissolve muscle tension and give an overall sense of relaxation and warmth. The stones are applied to the body using the traditional Swedish massage movements to improve circulation, release toxins, and alleviate stress and pain. Hot Stone Massage has been known to treat muscular aches and pains, as well as insomnia and anxiety.
REFLEXOLOGY (Foot Massage)
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. You can enjoy a warm salt foot bath followed by a soothing foot massage in one of our relaxing recliners. If you fall asleep, we understand. This is typically followed by a chair massage to work on your neck, shoulders, arms & back.
Chinese Massage works on muscle groups, joints, sites of pain and poor circulation. Our therapists understand the different nerves & meridians that run thru your body. If they become blocked, this can cause pain. It is a stronger massage than Swedish & you may feel a little discomfort as the masseuse works on problem areas you might have.
Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short -- 10 or 15 minutes -- and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is done over clothes and doesn't require any oils. Ask us to add this to your foot massage for a good over-all experience. Some people don't like to lay on the table & enjoy the chair more. Combine the foot bath/massage with the chair for a full hour of bliss.
