Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Various massage techniques are specially designed for the expecting mother which help release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy.

A specialized prenatal table allows mom-to-be the perfect support to experience massage while laying face down. Supportive woven elastic strips cover the belly and breasts through a special opening in the table.

All therapists are certified for prenatal massage.

This massage style aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body, and is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.  

Therapeutic massage session may include other healing techniques like Myofascial release which focus on loosening the connective tissue which surrounds the muscle fibers. This treatment allows muscles to have space to relax to, and can help assist the body to realign, and diminish pain from myofascial tenderness. This slow, and warming technique communicates with the body, asking the body to release the tension instead of forcing the connective tissue and muscles to respond.  Many patients receiving myofascial release on a consistent basis have reported overall improvement of their condition, diminished pain, soreness, and headaches after treatment, and prolonged relief after and individual treatment.

45 | 60 | 90 mins   Reiki Energy Healing $55 | $75 | $99

Reiki, (pronounced "ray-key"), is a hands on healing technique that originated in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. There are many forms of Reiki however (Egyptian, Hawaiian energy work), and is a holistic method for stress relief. It helps to calm the nervous system, metabolize stress hormone, and also promotes healing and improvement of pain threshold. It is not a cure for any diseases, but a help with relaxing the body. We see it as a supplementary energy therapy that works in harmony with other types of medicine to combat anxieties and illnesses. 

All Reiki practitioners offer a different experience during a session. Typically, a session is administered with the client lying on a table, fully clothed. A reiki session focuses on facilitating a safe space for enabling meditation and calming of the body while stopping overactive of thought patterns often experienced day-to-day. An Integrative energy session can include the use of tools like essential oils, guided meditation, crystal and metal sound healing bowls, with Reiki energy work that can increase balance of energy and and calm in the body. As a licensed massage therapist, Nicole can incorporate therapeutic massage, or reflexology in addition to Reiki in an Integrative Energy Healing session, and she has completed two Reiki Master Certifications.

A Reiki energy session can focus intention on balance of emotional, mental and physical states. When energy of the Charka centers has been blocked over long amounts of time, it is believed that there is a link to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dis-ease within the body. Reiki Master practitioners act as conduits, channeling the intuitive healing life force energy to areas of a client's body that is need of cleansing and relaxing. The practitioner may focus on specific Chakra energy centers, or areas of the body such as: hands, feet, legs, arms, shoulders, neck, or head. Hands are hovered over the body, or gently resting hands over the Chakras. When sound healing bowls are used, they may also be gently rested over the Chakra centers, and struck, or rung. The vibration of the bowls help to attune the vibration of that Chakra.  Reiki practitioners’ gift comes from a Higher source, our creator. Reiki is passed down by a Master Practitioner to a student, who teaches how to attune the sensitivity of energy; and this lineage goes back centuries.

cupping-therapy

Cupping has long been used to help treat upper respiratory infections like cold and flu, as well as other issues like cellulite, arthritis, migraines, anxiety and depression. 

60 | 90  mins    Chinese Cupping Therapy    $85 | $110

Cupping has long been an important part of traditional Chinese medicine, and has a long history in Asian culture. It has also been recorded in Ancient Greek writing and Egyptian hieroglyphs. Cupping is a physical therapy used to treat pathologies by use of negative pressure created from fire or vacuum pump cups.

The session begins with a gentle oil massage moving up and down the length of the spine. Negative pressure created inside the cup helps to lift and separate the connective tissue and tight muscle; aiding in release of pain and tension in the body.  Cups can be glided along the whole body during the massage, or placed on specific meridian energy points. Finally, the tissue is then smoothed out after the cups have been taken off the body. 

Cupping can create a mechanical warming stimulation, as well as produce temporary circular "love-bite" marks, as seen on celebrities like Gwyeneth Paltrow and Jennifer Anniston after their cupping therapy sessions.
