Promote Health and Healing

Massage therapy is one of the oldest of the healing arts. During a treatment, the physical manipulation of soft tissue structures in the body may help to relieve pain and physical discomfort.

You will receive a personalized massage therapy treatment from one of our highly experienced massage therapists that combines the techniques best suited to address your needs. Some of the modalities we offer are: Swedish, Esalen, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, prenatal, acupressure, shiatsu, myofascial release, orthobionomy, reflexology, and craniosacral therapy.

Massage therapy may reduce stress responses, promote healing and restoration, and help you to achieve a sense of well-being.
