Massage Services Offered:
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue massage involves manipulation of the soft-tissue for balancing the body's central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. By focusing on the deeper muscles and connective tissues of the body, movement and pressure is used to alleviate spasms and cramping. Trigger points are tender areas where muscles have been damaged by reoccurring spasms or "kink" that refers pain to surrounding areas. The goal is to reduce the spasm and increase blood flow into the area. Then the soft tissue begins to reshape and realign - breaking old habitual holding patterns and returning them to a state of balance.

In order to ensure this, the 30, 60, or 90 minute session that you reserved is time set aside for only you. We’d like to communicate some guidelines and policies in order to provide you with an optimum session.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of your scheduled reservation. This allows time to fill out the short, but required, health history form and talk to the therapist about any health issues or concerns, or your specific body needs that particular day. Giving yourself a little bit of extra time also allows your body and mind to start transitioning from active-busy-mode, into a more relaxing, receiving mode, thereby enhancing your massage experience. From the business and therapists’ side, it gives us the full time to actually have our hands on you, keeps our business on schedule, and respects the next client’s reserved therapy time.

If you do not call and do not show up for your reservation, you will incur a fee of the full value of your massage. These fees must be paid in full before further reservations can be made. Gift certificates and coupons are voided by failing to show for your scheduled time or cancel with sufficient notice.
We generally can work with a 5-10 minute delay if you are running late, but please be advised you will still be charged for the full session, and it will still end at the same time it would have had you arrived on time. If you are more than 10 minutes late, your massage may need to be rescheduled altogether, in which case the cancellation policy will apply. Of course we understand that life is complicated.
