The full Thai massage session follows a rhythm of pressing and stretching of the entire body which is can typically take longer than a standard therapeutic massage. The therapist uses no lotions or oils and the treatment takes place on a firm mat on the floor. You will remain clothed for your treatment so please wear items that you are able to move comfortably in. Learn more about our Thai Massage

Myofascial Cupping Massage

As the name implies, this is the practice of placing slightly heated cups on your skin to stimulate blood flow and promote healing. The cups are typically made of glass, although other materials can be used. The practitioner will quickly pass a flame into the cup; just long enough to heat the air within, and then place the cup, open face down, on your body. As the air within the cup cools, it creates a vacuum which pulls your flesh up and inside. The procedure leaves a painless, circular mark which disappears in a few days, whereupon you can return for another treatment. Learn more about Myofascial Cupping Massage

Prenatal Massage

A regular regimen of massage therapy promotes overall well-being and can help eliminate the painful aspects of pregnancy.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

As athletes, we’re driven by results, continually focused on performance. That unyielding drive to surpass and exceed is immensely rewarding, but it is also incredibly taxing on our bodies. Injuries and soreness are par for the course, and can seriously impact performance. To maintain peak efficiency, we need to find ways to minimize recovery time. One of the best ways to do that is with Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Learn more about Lymphatic Drainage

Plantar Fasciitis Massage

Plantar fasciitis is normally the result of repetitive strain, affecting people who run or walk often or over long distances without the proper footwear. Less frequently, plantar fasciitis can be caused by a single heavy blow to the ligament. This is a common injury amongst novice skydivers. In both cases, tiny tears (called micro tears) appear in the ligament at the site where it attaches to the heel bone. Learn more about our Plantar Fasciitis Massage
