RELAXATION
Light to medium Pressure

The goal of a relaxation massage is to improve circulation and generally relax your muscles. Using a light to medium touch, a relaxation massage aids in relieving stress and anxiety.

Choose this level of massage if you do not have a specific point on your body that needs to be worked on, but need a massage to give you an overall feeling of well-being.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE
Medium to deep pressure

The goal of a therapeutic massage is to resolve problem areas such as chronic pain, muscle tightness and soreness, and reduced range of motion. Each therapist will apply his or her own technique that is most beneficial to your body’s tissues and how your muscles are responding.

Choose this level of massage if you need relief from aches and pains, but also want it to be relaxing.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Most intense pressure

The most intense level of massage offered is deep tissue massage. Using a consistent, deep pressure, therapists focus on areas of pain or tension in your body. Your therapist will use proven techniques to release muscle tension and encourage blood flow into areas that have been restricted by injury or overuse.

Choose this level of massage if you are an athlete, have chronic problems, or have very tight muscles.

Far Infrared Sauna

Infrared heat relieves pain, improves circulation, enhances skin's healing process, increases metabolic rate, speeds recovery time, and improves immunity without using steam. Infrared heat goes directly to tissues, joints and muscles.

Chinese Medicine

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that has been used for centuries to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, emotional and mental conditions. It stimulates precise points on the body with a very fine needle.

CUPPING

Cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses small “cups” and heat on the body to focus blood flow in an area. Focused blood flow helps your body by flushing built-up toxins through the lymphatic system. Cupping is a deep tissue massage, much like Gua Sha, but works deeper in your muscles and fascia.

After a session using cupping, you may have circular marks on your skin from the cups. These marks will go away within 24-48 hours. Post treatment is the same as Gua Sha.

GUA SHA (pronounced “gwah shah”)

Gua Sha is a common practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that is used to get blood moving again so your body can recover from injuries and overuse. Massage oil or lotion is applied to the skin of the area to be treated. A smooth-edged instrument is used by the therapist to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. This stroking motion creates raised redness or bruise-like marks (but not bruises) as the blood is restored to the painful area. The change in color indicates how much of a problem you have in the area, and usually fades within 2-4 days.

After receiving Gua Sha, it is important to stay dry and warm, without cold air blowing on you. (Avoid showering for 12 hours).  

TUI NA (pronounced “twee nah”)

Tui Na uses principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to restore the body to balance. Your therapist will use his or her hands on your muscles and joints to affect the flow of energy through your body, using motions like rocking, pressing, and rolling your skin.
