Positive Effects

The positive effects of regular massage can have benefits in many areas of your life.

Home. Massage therapy helps families under stress create healthy households with clear thinking and more relaxed moms and dads. Individuals taking care of themselves are better equipped to be responsive caregivers who can provide a sense of security—to children, partners, aging parents, or other family members.

Work. The health benefits of massage can help forestall illnesses and lost work time, especially when you may be asked to produce more with fewer resources. Decision-making skills will be better and your performance is likely to be improved with a clear focus and more energy. A hint for the boss: Research shows employees exhibit improved performance and less stress when given twice-weekly, 15-minute massages in the office.

Health. Those with existing health conditions can continue to reap benefits in the following ways. Proactively caring for health through massage may help reduce costly doctor visits and use of prescription and over-the-counter medications.*

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, light touch form of bodywork that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. CranioSacral therapy is used to evaluate and enhance the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, thereby improving the function of the central nervous system.

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan. It uses kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques and is performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing. It uses acupressure points along the meridians to stimulate the flow of chi, similar to acuppuncture without needles.

Seven Crystal Massage

Receive a relaxing massage to help relax and soothe your muscles. After the massage, 7 crystals will be placed over your chakras (energy centers of the body). A guided meditation will accompany your session to clear and balance your chakras and restore them to their full radiance. Chakra clearing can be a very powerful experience and can help with many areas of your life. Receive a relaxing massage to help relax and soothe your muscles. Please note that the 60 min. session includes a shorter massage, if you would like a full body massage please opt for a 90 min. session
