Explanation of Services

Chinese Traditional Massage - The Chinese massage is a unique technique based on the theory of Chinese traditional medicine.  Using hands, arms, elbows, knees and feet, the masseuse applies pressure on the special areas or points of the person receiving the massage. 


Chinese massage for pain and stress relief originated from ancient China more than 3,000 years ago.

These special areas or points are well known as "Meridian Points".  The slowing-down of energy flow causes stress or fatigue, and the blockage of energy flow will cause many kinds of pain. 

Deep Tissue Massage - Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues.  The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. 


Deep tissue massage is typically used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one or two days after the massage while the body restores itself.
 
 

Swedish Massage - Swedish massage is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about a massage. The primary goal is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.


But, Swedish massage is much more than body relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.  

Hot Stone Massage - Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism.  The placement of water-heated stones at key points on the body promotes deeper muscle relaxation.  This therapy is combined with a focused customized massage to enhance the benefits of the hot stone therapy.  

Foot Reflexology - Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques.  It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet which results in a physical change to the body.

Signature Massage - This is our custom massage that uses several modalities with emphasis of the "Tuina" process which uses focused accu-pressure points.  Although all of our massages have therapeutic power, this massage is used for specific body issues and customized by the therapist to provide the best results.

Lomi Lomi Massage - Lomi Lomi massage is a beloved Hawaiian tradition that works the muscles with long continuous, flowing strokes. It is very nurturing and soothing for every part of the body. It encourages the recipient to relax and let-go of inner tensions.  The massage often includes discussion of inner cleansing.

Ashiatsu Massage - Ashiatsu massage is a technique going back 3000 years that includes using the bare feet to massage the back of the client. Many customers who need deep tissue work find barefoot massage to be very effective. 

Friendly Reminder - We are professional, licensed, massage therapists.  Please be courteous and refrain from asking for any inappropriate services.  You will find that our compassionate approach to touch and our friendly demeanor will have you coming back for more.
