+ ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a technique where muscles are actually stretched in specific directions to prevent muscle damage and encourage muscle release before certain types of massage therapy sessions.
Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.
Cupping is a subtle, effective healing therapy. By creating suction this therapy releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. The action of the suction also provides myofascial release to the superficial layers and deeper layers of fascia. There is no form of lymphatic stimulation and drainage that approaches the efficacy and speed of cupping.
Cupping can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other traditional bodywork modalities such as massage and acupuncture.
Among cupping's Benefits are: increased blood flow, facilitation of toxin and waste removal, decreased muscle tension, myofascial release, increased elasticity of tissue, cellulite treatment, reduction of hypersensitive pain, improved digestion, acceleration of illness recovery.
+ DEEP RELAXATION MASSAGE
This classic, deep relaxing massage technique reduces tension, soothes sore muscles and stimulates circulation.
+ DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
This therapeutic massage is designed to increase flexibility and relieve sore muscles and ease chronic muscle tension. Your therapist's strokes are slower, using more focused, direct pressure, friction and intensity to work the deeper layers of muscle tissue where stress and tension accumulate.
+ KANSA WAND
The domed tool is made of Kansa, a sacred bronze recognized in India as a healing metal. The smooth metal heats up as it is massaged into the skin. It’s been used for centuries to relieve stress, enhance health, increase energy, and leave skin glowing.
The wooden handle and bronze dome of the Kansa wand makes it easy to apply moderate pressure in gentle strokes on the face. Combined with organic oils—Jojoba is a popular choice—the wand provides a warm, relaxing sensation that may help reduce stress and increase energy.
+ PIN & STRETCH

With Pin & Stretch, specific areas are identified in muscles and tendons where overuse has caused repetitive injury and scar tissue has built up. Pin and stretch is a method of stretching involving shortening the muscle length by pinning the muscle, then taking the muscle through the full range of motion.

+ TRIGGER POINT
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
