Swedish Body Massage
Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (light touch), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (compression), and vibration. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis.

Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy.
Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body. It is well suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage.
Shiatsu – Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesion’s to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Couples Massage is a romantic side by side massage in a candle lit room, customized to each of your needs. Each person can choose between Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Aroma Therapy. Couples massage is a great way to introduce a partner who has not received a massage before in a way that makes them feel more comfortable their first time.
Reflexology is the application of pressure to the feet without the use of oil or lotion. The therapist manipulates a system of zones and reflex areas on the foot that reflects an image of the body’s organs on the feet. The gentle, soothing pressure helps to remove energy blockages and will direct good energy to flow to reinforce, promote, and restore the natural functions of the organs. This method will improve a person’s energy and vitality.
