Boost your body’s flow of qi with a specialized cupping treatment. This type of therapy involves heated round glass or silicone cups that create a vacuum or suction when placed on your skin. They are strategically placed and then slid along the muscles being treated. This technique helps the blood and qi to flow more easily to stagnated areas of the body to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Recover from stress and tension with the Restorative Massage. This massage treatment consists of strong, energizing strokes to release even the tightest knots in overworked bodies. Deep layers of muscle and fascia are restored resulting in pain reduction and improved mobility and range of motion.

Experience a State of Calm
There is plenty of research on the positive effects of massage therapy on one’s mental and physical health. The soothing techniques of massage therapy calm the nervous system to allow the mind and body to truly rest and recharge. This allows your emotional brain to switch off, easing anxiety and worry and allowing your mind to drift into a state of deep relaxation.
Massage therapy has recently been shown to increase and help regulate the availability of neuro-hormones that affect brain chemistry and the body’s psychological and physiological responses. Stress hormones (cortisol) are reduced while calming, feel-good hormones (oxytocin) are released, resulting in a greater sense of well-being.
Psychological research has demonstrated that people who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and anxiety disorders have higher levels of cortisol as they live in a chronic state of stress. Due to the positive effects on the endocrine system, regular massage therapy is an effective treatment to help reduce stress levels and improve overall functioning.
Massage therapy has a multitude of benefits on physical health and pain relief. It has been associated with increased circulation, reduced inflammation, improved hormonal balance, and overall stronger immune system. There have even been studies associating massage therapy with lowering one’s heart rate and blood pressure, as well as increasing energy levels and alertness.
If you are feeling stressed, you likely have a build up of tension in your upper body, as this is where stress is stored. Massage therapy eases stubborn knots and tight muscles, allowing you to breathe and move more freely. You may notice that your flexibility and range of motion have also improved. Our specialized massage treatments are tailored to your personal wellness goals so that you can feel your best.
