All services are individualized to the specific needs of each client

Myofascial Therapy

30 minutes: $50

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion by targeting the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension between the fascia and muscle tissue. While it can be used on all muscles, myofascial massage is not a single session "full-body" massage technique. It is recommended for anyone with "tight muscles", stiffness, and "knots".

Deep Tissue Massage

30 minutes: $50​

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 and muscular soreness is common after the treatment. Deep Tissue Massage targets specific areas and is not considered a single session full-body technique.

Swedish Massage

60 minutes: $85

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, and overall relaxation.

Combo Special

60 minutes: $85 (Half-body)

90 minutes: $120 (Full-body)

Enjoy a combination of Myofascial, Deep Tissue, and Deep Swedish massage.  This combination is designed for people who have a specific problem area that needs more focused work and who also want the benefit of an invigorating massage. Ideal for enhancing performance, injury recovery, and increasing range of motion.

Movement Education

60 minutes: $70

Movement education uses a custom-tailored approach to improving your body awareness and movement skills. Muscular discomfort or tension can often be due to faulty movement which causes compensation patterns in other areas of the body. Movement education sessions include evaluation of movement, mobility, and strength with suggestions and instructions for exercises to improve overall movement performance.
