Why Get A Treatment?

Benefits of Massage

Feel Better In Mind, Body & Soul

Massage Therapy Treatments alleviate tension and strains placed on our bodies from every-day activities, such as sitting for prolonged periods or being physically active.

Massage Therapy Treatments are able to realign and reduce strains of the muscles, tendons, and fascia by properly manipulating your soft tissues.

  • Alleviates Tension

  • Helps Stress & Anxiety

What Treatments do you offer?

Types of Massage

Swedish Massage Therapy & Reflexology

All massage techniques fall under one umbrella, Swedish Massage Therapy. 

The different Treatments we offer refer to the varying techniques and pressure that are used according to the treatment goals for each individual and session.

Therapy treatments will be altered and adjusted according to the clients comfort level and pain tolerances. Your therapist may offer extra complimentary treatments such as Craniosacral, Cupping or Hot Stone if they believe it will benefit you.

  • Deep Tissue

  • Relaxation

  • Reflexology

What's the Difference?

Massage Therapy vs. Reflexology

Which do you need?

When you book a Treatment with us, you can choose between Massage Therapy or Reflexology. But which one do you need?

Massage Therapy is typically applied to larger muscles across the entire body, whereas Reflexology focuses on hands, feet and/or ears.

To learn more about the differences between them, read our blog post about it here.

How can I get a Treatment?

What Should I Do Post-Massage?

Post Massage Tips

Muscle Soreness Is Common

Often times, you may experience muscle soreness (delayed onset muscle soreness). This will usually only last about 24-48 hours. The tips mentioned here will alleviate any soreness from your massage treatment.

After your treatment, your therapist will tell you to drink extra water, use a heating pad, ice packs, take a Epsom salt bath or do light stretching post massage.

These tips will complement and add too your massage treatment.

  • Drink Extra Water

  • Ice/Heat Pads

  • Epsom Salt Bath

  • Light Stretching

Let me start by saying this is a really nice clinic, clean and well decorated. I went for a massage for my lower back and my left shoulder. This was the best sports/deep tissue massage I have ever received. Lisa was professional and wasted no time. The treatment was great I felt comfortable the entire time. I can’t wait to go back. Thanks for the great treatment.

Lisa is the best massage therapist I have ever been to (and I have been to many). Her massages are so amazing, and I always leave feeling relaxed even though she has really gotten into my problem areas. I also love that she doesn't play traditional "spa" music, and instead a relaxing but modern playlist. If you are looking for the perfect massage, you should definitely book an appointment!

April Showers, Bring May Flowers…

“The cliche saying “less is more” yup, that’s right, if you try to carry ALL the mulch in one load, you are risking lower back discomfort. It’s better to split up the loads, yes, it may mean back and forth a few times; but it’s just burning more calories. The lighter the loads the less likely you will overdo it and strain a muscle or two.”
