Each massage is as unique as the recipient. Experience the techniques that are right for you in the moment and for your general well-being. Most therapeutic techniques work best as a customized blend specific to your needs. Sessions are tailored to a client's needs on that day as well as their long-term goals. Using a variety of these therapeutic techniques within each session clients are charged by time rather than service, with the exception of CBD massage, so there is freedom to match techniques to a client’s needs. The services listed here are simply to help you understand the various techniques available. Please click the options below for more information.

Swedish massage uses long gliding strokes, kneading of soft tissue, friction, vibration and percussion techniques to enhance circulation and ease muscular tension. Generally full body but can be customized and focused on specific areas. Relax and be at ease.
Deep Tissue Massage
A series of slow specific intentional strokes with varying amounts of pressure. The therapist uses fingers, thumbs, fists, elbows and forearms to target specific areas of tension in muscles and soft tissue layer by layer. Experience the release of long-standing holding patterns from the slow, specific strokes of deep tissue massage.
Modern Cupping Therapy
Modern cupping uses a vacuum effect and silicon cups to create negative pressure (decompression) that lifts and separates adhered tissues and moves waste that is potentially blocking the body's healing. The negative pressure creates local vasodilatation, which draws a fresh supply of fluids and nutrients to areas that have been injured, dehydrated, malnourished and deficient in fresh blood supply. Cupping when used in combination with massage replenishes what the body needs to heal, creates space for healing and is a relaxing experience.
Reflexology is a massage technique that is applied to the hands and feet that is used to promote well-being. It is based in traditional Chinese medicine energy flow and how different points in the hands and feet correspond to other specific organs and body systems.
Massage performed in a portable specialized chair where the client is sitting upright and clothed. It targets the neck, shoulders, upper back, arms, and hands, and is often used for onsite workplace massage. Can be used in place of table if more accessible or comfortable for client.

Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally in combination with massage to improve both physical and mental health. The essential oils can be diffused and absorbed through inhalation during the massage or they can be added to a carrier oil and used for the massage so that they are absorbed through the skin. There are many essential oils for you to choose from and you always have the option to not use any.
