Enhanced 90 minute massage - with all the fixin's!
Very few things are more relaxing than being therapeutically massaged with dark chocolate massage oil (that's vegan!) and finishing off your session with an essential oil infused scalp massage. That's why it's our May special. Regularly, this session is valued at $160 for non-members, now anyone can purchase for the member price!
Me too! Coughing, sneezing, stuffy and runny nose, the works! After I’ve already taken nearly a week off to recover from a bad head cold. One thing I can depend on though is eucalyptus oil. I mix it in Massage oil, or just put it right where I feel discomfort while I’m sick or wherever I’m sore. It creates a nice cooling sensation too.
Our scalp massage oil has wintergreen oil & ylang ylang oil to create an invigorating, yet grounding scent. Also super nice for migraines, tension headaches, TMJ pain sufferers & stimulating hair growth!!
You can enhance your next session with either awesome oil for only $10. Enjoy!
One thing I’ve learned to appreciate about our healing practice is incorporating heat into our sessions. From my first ever massage, when I realized this is what I wanted to do with my life (heal others), I realized the impact heat can have on the overall relaxation and how great the therapeutic benefit is.
I know I certainly can’t relax when I’m cold - and since the body always responds better to therapeutic touch when the tissues themselves are warmed up, I feel it’s only benefitting my clients to utilize heat during our sessions. I also respect those who choose not to use heat for whatever reason, for the record.
Our cozy table has an adjustable warming pad on top of it, and the linens aren’t your usual hospital or medical facility linens. They’re soft to the touch, thermal insulated for those who like an extra layer of softness.
In addition to the complimentary table warmth, you can add our signature Synergy Stones to any session for only $10 more. Synergy Stones are different from the regular black basalt Stones you see in ads for massage establishments. They’re ceramic so they hold heat better and longer, and are specifically contoured to our hands for better grip and maximum control.
I sincerely hope you take the time this winter to treat your body, mind & soul to warmth and therapeutic healing you so truly deserve. We only get one body, it’s up to us to do what we can to take care of it.

Every day! Well, maybe that’s not practical, even though it would be nice. This is one of the most common questions clients ask about massage therapy, and it really all depends on WHY you get massages. Do you get massages for health benefits? Or, to help you relax and handle the stress of everyday life? Most likely it’s a combination of the two, so let’s look at some of the most common reasons to get regular massages:
Relaxation & Stress Relief
One of the very best reasons to get a massage is for relaxation. Relaxation massage helps to support your body, including blood circulation and flexibility of joints. Regular massage can help prevent pain, muscle tension, and stress points from building up and causing problems. Why wait until you have a problem to get a massage? Massage is perfect for preventing issues with your tissues. Relaxation massage is usually recommended at least once per month, or as often as you want!
There may be times in your life where you experience higher levels of stress and more muscle tension than normal. It is especially important to practice good self-care during these times. When we “don’t have time” for a massage, is usually when we need one the most. Make yourself a priority even during stressful times, your health is worth it.
If you are in a high-stress job or you work in an environment where you stay in a certain position for a long period of time (at a computer for example), you may begin to develop tight or “knotted” muscles. This will frequently occur in your shoulders, arms, and back. All of this increased muscle tension will make movement harder and can cause a great deal of pain. Regular massage can help to keep you loosened up and will help to prevent pain and stiffness.
Living with high levels of stress for a prolonged amount of time increases the risk of contracting heart disease and other diseases. It has been estimated that 75 – 90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress related problems. The good news is, massage can help! Just knowing your massage is coming up in a few days can help to relieve stress, and a massage every 2-4 weeks will help with stress related tension.
Are you a weekend warrior, or do you just like to stay in shape? Either way, massage can help with sports performance and recovery. Many athletes and physically active people receive sports massage because it enhances their performance, prevents injury, and speeds up their muscles’ recovery. Competitive sports can put a lot of stress on a person’s muscles! Research conducted at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging at McMaster University in Ontario shows that massage reduces inflammation and stimulates the growth of new mitochondria, the energy-producing units in the cells, after strenuous exercise. This means that massage can help relieve pain, build muscles and help with muscle recovery too! For these benefits it is recommended that you get a massage up to three times a week or at least three times a month.
Chronic Health Conditions
People with ongoing health issues often find massage very helpful to alleviate symptoms. Chronic health problems that greatly benefit from massage therapy include back pain, joint pain, and localized inflammation. If you get therapy for specific issues, the frequency of getting massage therapy varies with the type of condition you have and how severe it is. Relief from pain can usually be achieved with 2-4 massage sessions per month. Your massage therapist will work with you to help you get on the best schedule for your body.
Pregnant women can greatly benefit from massage therapy! Prenatal massage and is popular among expectant mothers, who often experience a lot of aches and pains as their pregnancy progresses. Many women suffer from back pain, hip & sciatic pain, headaches, and tired legs & feet. But you don’t have to–a certified massage therapist can help to relieve those discomforts.
Going to your massage therapist once or twice a month can help with the symptoms caused by pregnancy, and it can even help you sleep better. Of course, it’s always a good idea to check with your doctor and your massage therapist to ensure that you don’t have any pregnancy related conditions that would contraindicate massage therapy for you. Most women experiencing a healthy pregnancy can and should enjoy regular massage sessions.
