Thai Massage $80 (30 min) $150 (1 hr)
It clears energy pathways from the toes to the top of the head. Therapists compress your body with fingers or hands, elbows, feet and give your body into various positions that open up energy channels for the free flow of energy and thoroughly stretch the muscles, relieve tension and pain. It is a deep form of therapy. (Comfortable clothing required)
Shiatsu Massage $100 (55 min)
Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic massage in which pressure is applied with the thumbs and palms to those areas of the body used in acupuncture. Concepts of shiatsu hold that it can promote health and facilitate healing by correcting energy imbalances in the body. These imbalances are corrected by applying pressure to specific points along channels in the body known as meridians.
Ashiatsu Back Walking Massage $125 (55 min)
When you want fast relief from muscle aches and stiffness, nothing beats the feeling of having your back walked on! But there’s a lot more to this exhilarating and often cathartic method of therapy. Imagine the deepest Swedish Deep Tissue massage you’ve ever had and then amplify it. The legs have a longer range of movement which means the therapist can apply consistent deep pressure throughout much longer spanning strokes. Powerful therapy not only has the ability to quickly resolve back pain and improves overall wellness but ultimately it can bring about real structural change to improve posture.
(Not recommended as a first time massage experience or with any injuries)
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (AOBT) is a barefoot massage technique using deep strokes from the therapists' feet. It is a western version of an ancient form of bodywork, with roots dating back thousands of years from cultures across Asia, India, Africa and the Pacific Rim.
In an Ashiatsu session, the client relaxes on a comfortable massage table while the therapist stands on the table holding onto overhead bars for balance and support, using their feet to deliver the massage. The advantage of this massage — both for the client and the therapist — is that Ashiatsu allows gravity to do the work, leveraging the therapists' body weight to provide a depth unmatched by other techniques.
Ashiatsu offers deep, broad compression without sharp discomfort. Ashiatsu is meant to feel more like a mesmerizing Swedish massage — deep broad pressured flowing strokes — with no pain. Feel an awakening of your natural healing potential through true relaxation.
Clients of every age and size can benefit from this deep tissue massage, famous for back and hip pain relief, and deep relaxation. Ashiatsu is particularly popular among athletes, but is not recommended during pregnancy, or with any health issues only if supported with doctor permission note. Please discuss with your massage therapist any potential health concerns before trying Ashiatsu.
Ashiatsu can be done with clothes on as per client request. Comfortable cotton clothing must be worn at the time of the service.
