An integrative approach to massage and bodywork allows us to utilize the best aspects of many techniques and modalities, resulting in a well rounded and truly therapeutic massage experience.

According to the Mayo Clinic and The American Massage Therapy Association therapeutic massage can also help decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety by lowering cortisol and increasing serotonin as well as providing compassionate touch therapy.
Massage cupping is a technique that uses suction on the surface of the skin to draw inflammation and stagnation from the body to the surface where it is then flushed away in the lymph and circulatory systems. Some of the benefits of massage cupping include but are not limited to:
Drains & Moves Fluids
Nervous System Sedation
Stretches Muscles and Connective Tissue
Loosens Adhesions in the Fascia
Cupping is gentle yet profoundly effective on the physical and mental bodies. Five minutes of cupping is equal to 30 minutes of deep tissue massage and can affect the tissue up to 4 inches into the body.

"Dynamic Fascial ResponseTM is a blend of structural therapies and foundational philosophy that produce a dialog of activation and response between the practitioner and the fascia. The response in the fascia releases holding patterns in the fascial body and, as a result, both physiological and emotional changes occur. This method resources and re-purposes stuck patterns and can heal trauma, relieve pain, improve posture and health and above all promote peace." -Chula Gemignani, CMT and Instructor and creator and of the DFRTM Technique.
Foot Lounge Experience
So often we find ourselves rushing through our day... rushing to appointments, running around at work, at home, on our days off... it's exhausting. And our feet largely take the brunt of all this hurrying. Our Foot Lounge Experience was created with this in mind, as somewhere you can land for 20 minutes (or more!) and just let go of the day for a few moments and show your self and your feet some care and appreciation. Sink into our soft and cushy vibrating massage chairs while the warm water infused with Dead Sea salts and soothing herbs (by local busines Bloom & Skye Herbal Remedies) soak away the stress of the day as you gaze out over our potted garden of Japanese Maples (courtesy of another local small business Focal Point Trees).
