massage and spa treatments

  • Swedish Massage- Swedish massage therapy uses a combination of kneading, long strokes, circular motions, and tapping to induce relaxation and release muscle knots. This gentle massage is ideal for people who have a lot of tension, are new to massage, or are sensitive to touch.
  • Hot Stone Massage- This type of massage therapy uses heated stones instead of or in addition to the massage therapist’s hands. The heat from the stones helps relieve pain, ease muscle tension, and improve blood flow, as well as the standard benefits of stress relief and relaxation.
  • Sports Massage- As you can guess from the name, sports massage therapy is specifically designed to help with injuries from playing a sport or other repetitive activity. A sports massage can focus on the site of injury, or can include the whole body. In addition to helping alleviate and manage pain from existing injuries, a sports massage can also help improve flexibility and performance to avoid injuries in the future.
