Ashiatsu Massage
60 minutes: $70
90 Minutes: $90
 

In Ashiatsu, the practitioner uses their feet to deliver treatment. The name comes from the Japanese, ashi for foot and atsu for pressure. This modality typically uses the heel, sesamoid, arch and/or whole plantar surface of foot, and offers large compression, tension and shear forces with less pressure than an elbow, and is ideal for large muscles, such as in thigh, or for long-duration upper trapezius compressions. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Deep Tissue Massage
60 minutes: $70
90 minutes: $90

A firm pressure massage. Helps alleviate pain, muscle spasms, stress, inflammation and tissue damage. Great for anyone with soft tissue problems that produce any discomfort or pain.

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people's blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.

Hydrocollator Hot Pack Massage
60 minutes: $70
90 minutes: $90

Penetrating heat from hydrocollator hot packs is used to relieve tense muscles and sore joints. Combined with Swedish techniques, this creates an unforgettable, thoroughly relaxing experience. So what is a hydrocollator pack? It’s a “hot pack” that applies hot, moist heat directly to the skin. Usually the packs are filled with silica, gels, or organic materials. One of the main uses of hot packs in massage therapy is for the practice of deep tissue massages structural healing. Often times, this technique requires wrapping the muscles with hot packs surrounded by towels, in order to maximize the heat and the comfort levels achieved. Deep tissue massages can offer a variety of benefits when coupled with hydrocollator packs. The benefits can include increased blood flow, decreased pain, and shortened healing times. The relaxing nature of the hydrocollator pack use can alleviate stresses that would otherwise cause the healing process to slow. The hot packs can easily prepared a sprained, bruised, or spasmodic muscle for deep tissue massages that will alleviate soreness.

Sports Massage
60 minutes: $70
90 minutes: $90

A therapeutic massage that includes stretching and compression techniques. Rehabilitates soft tissue dysfunction that can result from physical labor, lifting weights or sports related injuries. Promotes flexibility, reduces swelling, relieves muscle tension, and alleviates muscle fatigue. One of the key benefits of Sports massage therapy compared to other modalities is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions. A 2010 study in the journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that even a 30-second massage improved hip-flexor range of motion. Another study conducted by Margaret Jones, Ph.D. of the American College of Sports Medicine, demonstrated a notable trend toward decreased muscle soreness in the athletes who received massage either before or after exercise.

Thia Massage
90 minutes: $100

Ancient stretching techniques and joint manipulation combined with Swedish massage to rid you of nagging aches and pain. An efficient, fully-clothed massage that improves circulation, stimulates muscles and reduces tension in the back, neck and shoulders. Tension and spasm in a muscle are the result of a vicious circle of events involving the muscle and its sense organs; those muscles that are antagonistic to it and the brain. The more tense the muscle the shorter it gets, and the brain interprets this as contraction, so inhibiting the function of the antagonistic muscles, which weaken as a result. Regular Thai massage stretches the muscles back to their normal resting length, which deceives the brain into 'thinking' that all is well and it stops inhibiting the antagonists. Before long, tension disappears and joint mobility is restored.
