Therapeutic Massage

Everybody has individual needs and preferences. Whether you are looking to relax, reduce tension, or relieve pain and muscle tightness, a customized massage therapy session will be structured to meet your needs.  Massage modalities incorporated:

•Swedish Massage- a full body massage using light to medium pressure. Long, kneading, rhythmic, soothing strokes are used.

• Deep Tissue Massage- full body or area specific, deeper pressure is used to release tissue restriction.  Hands, soft fists, forearms and elbows apply pressure for this treatment.

• Myofascial Release- These strokes are sometimes more intense (but effective). It is generally dry work, no lotion is used, which increases tissue movement, reduces restrictions & improves range of motion.

• Positional Release- With this method the body is moved into positions which create slack in tight tender muscles. This resets the way your muscles perceive stimuli and relieves points of tension and pain.

•Cupping- Silicone cups are applied to the body by suction.  Cupping moves lymph, and reduces restriction in fascia and muscle tissue.  Aside from being used during your 30/60/90 minute treatment you have the option to use cupping as an Add On treatment: Cups will be applied to your back and left on for 15 minutes.

 

Facial Toning Massage

60 minute session includes a vigorous massage to the face, neck and decollete with the use of toner, essential oils, massage creme and the application of hot moist towels.  Added massage time to the scalp, hands and feet.  Feet are wrapped in hot moist towels prior to massage.

  • Please arrive without makeup

  • Avoid too much sun/sunburn

  • In the case of acne or rosacea, cold towels will be used

 

Thai Foot Reflexology Massage

Reflexology helps bring the body back into homeostasis so that the body can heal itself.  It decreases stress & pain.

Reviews

Amazing doesn’t cut it! Erika is so welcoming, professional, and knowledgable. She has amazing techniques that are completely soothing while working out kinks at the same time. She is the only person who has ever put me into a trance during a massage. Easy to get in touch with, easy to get an appointment, and easy on the wallet. I can’t stress enough how great she is...or I can..so then I can give myself an excuse to go have another massage!
