HOT STONE MASSAGE

"Melt into relaxation and ultimate healing with comforting and deeply therapeutic hot stones"

The therapeutic properties of hot stones have long been used to bring lasting relief and relaxation to stressed bodies & minds. Our therapists use smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work break through the tension with ease.

Cupping Massage

Cupping is a therapeutic technique that uses small glass cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin. The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layers to be slightly pulled into the cup. Once applied onto the skin, the cups are either moved along meridian lines/muscle groups (gliding) or left in place for about ten minutes (stationary cupping).

JADE HOT STONE MASSAGE

Jade Stone Massage provides a more penetrating massage because of the shape, energetic properties and the incorporation of both heated and cooled stones. At temperatures of 130°F and 32°F, the stones open and release tissues that are tight and knotted. This alternation of temperatures provides an internal workout, moving blood, lymph, and energy, leading the muscles to an increased energy state but a minor compromise on overall body relaxation.

Acupuncture is an ancient practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). According to TCM, a healthy body is balanced with Qi (energy) flowing freely throughout 12 regular meridians to nourish each corresponding organ in the body. Each organ has a function and if the free flow of Qi or Blood is interrupted, patterns of disharmony occur leading to illness or pain. After an initial intake, Elizabeth will select points on the affected meridians to target not only symptoms, but the root cause of dysfunction. Acupuncture promotes natural healing, supports emotional and physical health, improves overall body function and well-being.

Elizabeth enjoys working with people of all ages and enjoys how each one of her clients bring something new to the table to broaden her knowledge and experience.

SOME BASICS TO ASSIST YOU COMMUNICATING YOUR WANTS AND NEEDS WITH THE THERAPIST

Deep Tissue Massage

We will get to the root of your tension no matter how deep you've hidden it. Deep tissue massage aims to release chronic patterns of tension in the body, through specific deep pressure and slow strokes at specifc concentrated areas. The intent of the massage is to work on the layers of the body’s soft tissues and particularly the structure which covers and encases them – the fasci. This technique can be corrective and is best suited for chronic issues. Deep massage techniques can utilize the knuckles, fists, elbows, and forearms but our therapists will always respect your pain tolerance levels, and will work with you to find a level of pressure that is comfortable for you. After a massage with our skilled therapists, you will feel more relaxed and looser than you have in years!

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage ­– to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly. The mother's body is properly positioned and supported using pillows, massage bolsters and padding to allow for enhanced comfort and to create the ideal therapeutic massage position.

RELAXATION MASSAGE

Rediscover the feeling of being free and completely letting go. Allow our therapists to find that tranquil spot while focusing on relieving muscle tension and assisting in the removal of toxins from your system. By completely allowing yourself to relax, a relaxation massage provides assist in the reduction of muscle pain, migraine headaches, joint pain, overused or sore muscles, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and muscle injuries. Relaxation massage can also help with a better night sleep and to speed the recovery times from mild illnesses.

Pre-event treatment is designed to help athletes prevent injury, increase performance, and increase endurance. Post-event massage relieves pain, prevents stiffness, and decreases recovery time. Peak performance is easily acheived when attention is paid to your body. Help your body to function optimally by removing your body's restrictions.
