Aromatherapy:

The practice of using natural oils to enhance psychological and physical well-being. We take blended oils and mix with an unscented jojoba carrier lotion and apply during the massage. We offer many different scents and you can smell and choose when you come in for your appointment. 

Sugar Foot Scrub: 

Great all year round and keeps the feet smooth and soft. We use 2 hot towels wrapping the feet and massage the warmth into the skin. Then we take a brown sugar mix with extra virgin olive oil mixed to the perfect consistency and applied to the feet, scrubbing the dead skin off leaving the foot clean. Next, is another set of towels to help the oil soak into the foot and melt the sugar for a clean feet. Last, we take a body butter and apply to the feet leaving your feet soft and ready for any footwear. Our offer scent free scrubs, if you would like a scent we can add an essential oil blends that we carry to your scrub for $5. 

Deep Muscle Therapy:

Great technique using warm towels, Prossage, and Bio-Freeze and helps manipulate the muscles for a deeper tissue massage.

Reiki (performed by Doug only):

An energy work that can be added to your massage. Reiki is a Japanese technique that uses energy also called Ki or life force energy that is in our bodies and around us in everything. Reiki is used to replenish this energy or unblock it promoting relaxation, stress relief and self healing by the body.

Reiki can be done by itself or incorporated in with massage. When done by itself you can wear loose fitting clothing to allow unrestricted breathing and blood flow. A Reiki session usually lasts about an hour and is applied with light touch or with no touch. 

Cupping (Doug and Stephanie only):

A wonderful ancient tool in modern form of vacuum therapy. Cupping provides incredible results by creating a suction and vacuum pressure to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. It can be easily customized to provide a variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This can be a full session or added to a session and a specific muscle is cupped or a certain area for 10 minutes. 

Reflexology (Zakia only):

Reflex points correspond to various structures of the body. Massaging in gentle circular stroke or direct pressure will break up any crystal like deposits around the reflex points. This promotes optimal organ and nerve function, as well as increasing the lymphatic and circulatory flow and relaxation of the body.
