Shiatsu

$70 for an hour, or
$100 for an hour and a half

Add on cupping for an additional $15

An Eastern-style massage that is guided by the elements of water, wood, fire, earth, and metal being in balance. Each element rules certain aspects of your being on a mental, spiritual, and physical level. This massage is done on a mat on the floor, typically fully clothed. It utilizes pressure along the meridians and assisted stretches to offer relaxation and restoration.

You will want to wear comfy clothes you can move in for this kind of massage, similar perhaps to what you might wear to yoga. The nature of this massage is energetically based, so you can have no pressure to a lot of pressure depending on your preference.

Swedish

$70 for an hour, or
$100 for an hour and a half

Add on cupping for an additional $15

Gliding and flowing strokes are the hallmark of this massage. Often used for relaxation, this can be modified for a therapeutic purpose as well.

For relaxation, a general full-body massage from head to toes is used, with a little extra time spent on one area of choice.

As a therapeutic massage, one muscle or group of muscles will be targeted for specific work to help alleviate pain or chronic tension, aid in the healing process (often a great pair with physical therapy), or similar. After working those muscles, as much of a full-body massage as can be included, will be. Sometimes a small area has to be sacrificed, such as the arms or feet.

Therapeutic Thirty

$40 for a thirty-minute targeted massage

Add on cupping for an additional $15

This is the basic Swedish massage, but condensed down into thirty minutes. During this thirty minutes, one muscle or group of muscles will be worked on only, so it will not be a full-body massage. This is great for when you just need a little something to work out one specific kink or issue on a budget.

As a therapeutic massage, one muscle or group of muscles/area will be targeted for specific work to help alleviate pain or chronic tension, aid in the healing process (often a great pair with physical therapy), or similar. It may involve deeper work into that targeted area, and communication between the massage therapist and client is essential in that case. This can be customized to be as involved as you need it to be.

Cupping

$15 add-on to a Shiatsu session or Swedish massage

Cupping can be added in with any service offered to enhance the massage experience. This technique uses special cups to gently pull the tissue up with suction, acting like massage in reverse.

This can aid in the reduction and breaking up of scar tissue, removal of toxins from the body and muscles, ease fascial tension, and more.

Please be advised that cupping tends to leave marks on the skin. They are not harmful or painful, but they look like perfectly round bruises. They can range from light in color to very deep.
