List of Services
Acupuncture – Acupressure Bodywork techniques are the traditional Chinese medicine art of balancing Chi energy—the circulating life force in the body—by stimulating its healthy flow along energy pathways called meridians. Practiced through clothing, practitioners utilize finger and elbow pressure on the same meridian points stimulated with needles in Acupuncture. During treatment, there is elongation of the muscle fibers, which contributes to the release of toxins and waste materials within the tissues, and an increase in the circulation of oxygenated blood, thereby promoting cellular nutrition and stronger resistance to disease.
Clinical Deep Tissue Massage works through tension, layer by layer, reaching the deeper muscles where persistent discomfort can be released. Much of the work is focused on bringing the body back into balance by working on the fascia—the soft tissue component of the connective tissue system of the body. The work is usually localized, and the client must be relaxed to permit the practitioner to work deeply. The pressure starts lightly, but progresses to the deepest level the client can tolerate. This approach can be either corrective or generally therapeutic.
Craniosacral Therapy is one of the more gentle yet powerful therapies. William Sutherland, an osteopathic practitioner in the early 1900’s, discovered that gentle manipulations and adjustments at the sutures of the cranium, sacrum, and tailbone released tension from the membranes of the entire system, allowing the body to self-correct. This technique uses gentle, fluid movements of the bones and tissues of the head, thorax, and hips to enhance the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Imbalances are corrected in the central nervous system between the cranium and the sacrum, resetting the body’s natural healing potential. Craniosacral work can be done with the client clothed or unclothed.
Esalen Massage is a nurturing, flowing massage that incorporates long strokes, gentle rocking, passive joint mobilization stretches, and the flow of breathing. Flowing, light-oiled strokes are intrinsic, and therapists switch between using hands and elbows for deeper work and stretches. Founded at Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California, this approach supports the whole person, rather than disjointed parts.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a gentle, connective tissue massage technique that accelerates the movement of the lymphatic fluid that bathes the tissues, through the lymphatic system and into the bloodstream. The lymphatic system is responsible for keeping the connective tissue surrounding cells free from excess water, proteins, bacteria, viruses, inorganic materials, destroyed cells resulting from surgery or trauma, red blood cells, and other dead cells.
Myofascial Release Bodywork is a gentle, hands-on form of stretching that evaluates and treats the fascial connective tissue system, which can become restricted due to overuse, inactivity, trauma, or infection, often resulting in pain and muscle tension. The function of fascia is varied, but it generally acts as a shock absorber. It creates tissue spaces and plays an important role in support, protection, separation, cellular respiration, elimination, metabolism, and fluid and lymphatic flow. It is a major area of inflammatory processes and will often change prior to chronic tissue congestion. Dysfunction in these tissues can have far-reaching effects.
Neuromassage Bodywork incorporates gentle and deep techniques for addressing unhealthy chronic tension patterns and structural imbalances. It is used to re-educate and encourage the nervous system to allow rather than to resist release. Founded by Langdon Roberts, this work combines both neuroscience and therapeutic bodywork while ‘teaching’ the client’s nervous system how to achieve and maintain the physiology of relaxation. It focuses on the body’s somatosensory system, the part of the nervous system that is responsible for how we experience touch, including pain, pressure, and temperature change.

We bring therapeutic massage to hospital employees, law firms, high-tech companies, and more.

Pregnancy Massage is designed for women who are pregnant, and they can receive this massage at any point in their pregnancy. Our pregnancy massage therapists have had specific training in this field. The client receives the session in a side-lying position with pillows and bolsters provided for support and maximum comfort. The treatment consists of specific features of tissue sculpting, Swedish massage, joint mobilization, foot zone therapy, and connective tissue work to alleviate many of the physiological, musculoskeletal, and emotional stresses that can accompany pregnancy.
Reflexology Massage uses various touch techniques on specific points of the feet and hands to normalize body function, restore energy throughout the body, and maintain optimum health. Reflexology practitioners theorize that there are major reflex points in the hands and feet corresponding to each organ and major muscle group in the body. Pressure on these points releases restricted energy flow and improves blood supply. Since the extremities have a rich supply of nerve endings, stimulation to these points can have far-reaching effects, including release of endorphin into the bloodstream, providing pain relief and a feeling of well-being.
Reiki Bodywork is a Japanese hands-on healing system that works with the human energy bio-field. Reiki is also the word used to identify the healing modality that accesses the very high vibrational force in all living beings. To tap into this universal energy, or reiki, the practitioner attunes the person’s bio-energy field to accept reiki frequency. Reiki is practiced through loose, comfortable clothing. It is administered with a light touch of the practitioner’s hands upon various parts of the recipient’s body, in a pattern that promotes optimum energy balancing and enhances the natural self-healing processes.
Shiatsu Acupressure is an ancient Japanese bodywork system that uses hand, knuckle, palm, elbow, and foot pressure on specific points located along energy pathways called meridians, in order to promote the free flow of ki energy, the circulating life force. Oriental medicine maintains that disease occurs because of stagnation or blockage in the flow of ki energy. Shiatsu uses pressure techniques to affect the interrupted energy flow throughout the meridians and related organs, thus restoring balance to the body. The practitioner’s techniques may include finger pressing, palm pressing, holding, vibration, rubbing, shaking with hand or foot, patting, tapping, kneading, stretching, and joint rotation.
Sports Massage is a specialized and often eclectic form of Swedish massage that focuses on enhancing athletic performance and facilitating post-event recovery. It benefits the professional or amateur athlete, dancer, or exercise enthusiast. Practitioners of sports massage concentrate on working the whole body, and they also pay particular attention to those muscle groups that are involved in a specific sport or activity. The four basic strokes used by a sports massage therapist are direct or trigger point pressure, cross fiber friction, compression, and percussion.
Swedish Massage is the classic style of bodywork. Also called Western massage, it is the most popular and familiar massage method being practiced today, and it has served as a foundation for many of the massage techniques developed in recent years. Swedish massage is a scientific system of manipulations on the muscles and connective soft tissue of the body for the purpose of relaxation, rehabilitation, and health maintenance. It is comprised of five basic strokes and their variations: effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), friction (cross fiber), percussion (rhythmic tapping), and vibration.
