Many Massage Styles

A variety of massages are offered, but how do you know which one is right for you? We can answer any questions you might have, but if you're wondering what the difference is between massages, check out our cheat-sheet below.

Deep tissue massage
This kind of massage is meant to stimulate muscles and tissues deep below the skin's surface. A deep tissue massage works the connective tissues, called fascia, which surround your muscles, bones and organs. To relieve the stress trapped deep in your body, we use our fingers, thumbs, fists and elbows to alleviate tense areas. A deep tissue massage is great for people with chronic pain, sports injuries or anyone involved in strenuous activities.

Swedish massage
A Swedish massage uses a series of techniques to promote stress relief, boost circulation and increase flexibility. We use a combination of gentle strokes, kneading techniques, friction and vibration to achieve the best results. It's a great option for people with a stressful life or anyone looking to unwind.

Hot stone massage
This kind of massage uses heated stones to compliment a range of soothing massage techniques. During this massage, hot stones are strategically placed along your body to help release stress or used to massage troubled areas. The heated rocks are the key; reaching areas deeper in the body that a masseuse can't get to. It's a great option for those who want something more than a Swedish massage.
