Aromatherapy is the art and science of using pure essential oils to help heal mental, emotional and physical issues and to increase wellness. Incorporating essential oils into a massage is a complex and powerful experience.

Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace using a specialized ergonomic chair. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit from this method is that it is done over the clothing. With chair massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Hot Stone Massage
Experience the profound elements of fire and earth with a sacred hot stone massage. The heat of the stones are grounding and deeply relaxing taking you to a place of serenity, peacefulness and bliss. The hot stones are used to penetrate tight muscles by being placed on your body while you receive strokes with specially gathered and prepared natural stones.
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restriction to eliminate pain and restore motion. The therapy targets the fascia, the connective tissues that wraps around your muscles and other parts of your body. This connective tissue web becomes bound down following injury or stress. Trauma, inflammatory responses and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures that do not show up on many of the standard tests ( x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, etc.) but cause acute and chronic pain.
This treatment can provide relief to those experiencing pain from headaches, backaches, or other chronic pain issues. Did you know? Myofascial Release is one of the top recommendations for physical therapy. It can also help with pain relief for injuries, illness, and diseases, especially those affecting soft tissue areas.

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
A study conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and published in The New York Times, found that volunteers who received a 45-minute Swedish massage experienced significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin-a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. Volunteers also had increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu.
