Acupressure: Like acupuncture but without the needles; a balancing of the body’s bio-electrical circuits or energy routes.

Aromatherapy: Aromatic or essential oils added to massage for various benefits.

AromaTouch: Structured massage with an ordered series of premium essential oils. Light to medium pressure.

Cancer Massage: A light modality using a mix of energy work, lymphatic drainage, and reflexology.

Cranial Sacral: Gentle, light to medium holds that release restrictions in the spinal column, bones of the head/spine and underlying structures.

Deep Tissue: A deep, slow modality focused on lengthening tight muscles. Very time-consuming, best mixed in short bits with Swedish or Sports Massage.

Facilitated Stretching: This is a good sports modality with gentle stretching of all major muscle groups. Mainly, the therapist stretches you, with or without some assistance from you.

Hot Stone: Water heated stones massaged into the body to relax and sooth achy muscles; catalyzes a deeper more effective release.

Injury: Area specific, rehabilitation massage for soft tissue damage. This modality uses short, focused strokes to strip out toxins and remold scar tissue, medium to deep pressure.

Lymphatic Drainage: Light, flat strokes help move fluid build up or mild inflammation.

Meridian Flexibility: Heavy, active stretching with a mix of squashing massage, compressions plus breathing. Wear movable clothes for this modality, no disrobing involved.

Reflexology: The activation and stimulation of nerve endings in feet, hands and ears. Medium to deep pressure.

Reiki: A fully clothed, specialized, holistic healing treatment that rebalances and revitalizes the energy pathways of the body. If you have anxiety, stress, pain, problems sleeping, feel stuck, exhausted and have tried other things — REIKI CAN HELP. Reiki is positive energy for the mind, body, emotion and spirit. Treatments bring you feelings of peace, calm and well-being. It is administered using gentle touch while lying on a massage table or sitting in a chair. Reiki reduces/releases stress, pain and tension, quiets the overactive mind, soothes the emotions, removes energy blockages and supports the healing process. (Miri Klements only)
