Overview of Service
Massage provides exceptional relief from pain and mental stress that does not require a doctor’s supervision, however, it is not a substitute for medical treatment. In many cases, clients are able to create a pain management program with massage that medicine alone has not been able to alleviate.
Many people claim massage does better to relieve their pain than any other treatment they have tried. So, while massage is a great complimentary therapy to other treatments, it alone can also provide substantial positive results.

Types of Massage We Offer:
The Back To Wellness MassageA Personalized massage experience combining several massage techniques that focus on your specific needs. Your therapist can help you decide what your “Body Kneads”.
SwedishDuring traditional Swedish massage, the muscles are stroked and kneaded to encourage them to relax, to release toxins, and to improve circulation. Sometimes a heavy pressure is necessary to get muscles to release and relax.
Deep TissueDeep Tissue massage uses slow strokes and deep pressure across the grain of the tense muscles. It is applied with more pressure and to deeper layers of muscle than Swedish massage. There is evidence that deep tissue massage helps break up and eliminate scar tissue.
ReflexologyReflexology follows the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every organ, gland or muscular/skeletal part of the body. Gentle pressure is applied to these reflex points in order to help promote normalization of body functions. .Reflexology treats the body holistically and can be considered as a very useful complementary therapy.
Sports MassageSports Massage is used primarily for the serious athlete who trains continuously. It focuses on the muscles relevant to the particular athletic activity. A pre- or post-workout massage stimulates muscle mass, improves circulation, and increases power and flexibility through stretching.
