01 Abhyanga - Aryuvedic Hot Oil Massage

This massage uses warm oil and long strokes over your body. The rhythmic strokes calm down your nervous system, as your parasympathetic response - your rest and digest system -  is activated. The oil nourishes your skin and leaves you with a youthful, healthy glow.

 

For all MOTHERS: While breastfeeding, this treatment has resolved every single clocked duct I had and prevented mastitis with my second son (which I had several times with my first son, when I did not use abhyanga yet).

 

* I have studied abhyanga with Melissa Haight (Kala Ayurveda) and am remaining under her loving guidance.

02 TCM-based Therapeutic Massage

This personalized therapeutic massage consists of intentional pressure to allow for profound relaxation and feeling of wellbeing. Additionally, deeper pressure and release techniques for the fascia (the connective tissue that surrounds muscles and nerves) are added to reduce pain and tension.

Our overall health is intimately related to our muscular health. One of the many factors that contribute to pain and dysfunction of muscles is the development of adhesion and trigger points. Trigger points are hyperirritable areas of muscle tissue or fascia that cause pain in that area and can refer to other areas of the body. We will reduce these trigger points with intentionally directed ischemic compression. 

Aromatherapy makes use of essential oils that are revered for their healing properties. Essential Oils act on our oldest sense - the olfactory sense. This sense strongly associates with our memory and our personality. Essential oils are concentrated, pure, all natural essences, taken from botanic elements such as flowers, fruit, seeds, and leaves. Aromatherapy works pharmacologically, physiologically and psychologically. To accompany your therapeutic massage, we carefully select and blend a mix of essential oils that will benefit your current physical and mental state or condition.

 

* We only use organic essential oils from Mountain Rose herbs. Your customized oil blend is available for purchase.

* Hot towels, hot stones, essential oils and foot treatment are included.

03 Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a cleansing and rejuvenating technique, rooted in ancient Chinese Medicine. After a cleanse of the face, neck and upper body, we will apply special oils and use a gua sha stone to enhance the flow of stagnated lymph fluid, stimulate energy points, and allow the proper flow of your body's natural nutrients to these areas. The experience leaves you relaxed and with fresh, rejuvenated skin. It is recommended to receive weekly gua sha treatments for about 5-10 weeks.

30 min | 50 USD

04 Tui Na

Tui Na is a massage technique from Chinese Medicine and is believed to be the oldest form of bodywork. The focus is on your meridians (energy channels) and acupressure points to promote the free flow of Qi (energy) and release blockages throughout your body. This modality can be applied while you are fully dressed.

05 Cupping

Option to add

Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese medical technique that uses cups to create suction, promote blood flow and facilitate healing in specific areas. It aids in the relief of muscle tension, promotes cell repair, removes toxins, and restores the natural energy flow of the body.

 

* The areas on the back where the cups have been applied will be visible darker for a couple of days, without being painful.
