Relaxing massage can be very beneficial to improving the circulatory system but also the lymphatic system and to calm the nervous system. Therapeutic massage will go one step farther beyond relaxing and will focus on those problem areas that need more mobility and release. *See below for pricing to add on Basic Aromatherapy or Specialized Aromatherapy.
Deep tissue will use an increase of pressure in problem areas and will work into deeper layers of the muscle tissue. Therapists include the use of forearms, elbows and knuckles as needed. While we have therapists skilled in deep pressure, remember that deeper is not always better and "no pain no gain" is not a phrase we go by. The level should be comfortable; client should not tense or hold breath because this is a sign less pressure should be used. *Amanda, Bridget, & Arianna.
Prenatal massage is one of the best therapies that a woman could do for herself and her baby while being pregnant. Despite some of the myths, there is no indication of negative side effects of massage in the 1st trimester or beyond with trained professionals. We do offer this from the beginning of your pregnancy up to the day you are going in to deliver. Deep tissue, however, is not advised. *Offered by all therapists.
Special trigger points will be focused on to relieve tension in the head along with facial/sinus work when needed, scalp work, and a lot of neck and shoulder work.

Yin Yoga is focused on the joints, fascia & ligaments of the body tissues. It consists of about 20 poses; selection of poses varies in each class. Poses are held for 3-5 minutes; all are reclined or seated in order to release deeper into the connective tissues & open meridians. It's the recommended style of yoga for people 30 & older as we enter the "yin" stage of life & leave the "yang" stage. This is the forgotten part of balance to the body as most people solely focus on rigorous activity.
Chair yoga is great for anyone who has injuries or limits or difficulty in any poses that typically require being on the floor. *Not your typical chair yoga*. This class focuses on correcting posture, mobilizing restrictions in the body, finding how to contract the proper muscles in order to bring balance and health back to the muscles of the body while creating safe movement and alignment for the joints and relieving stiffness.
*Ages 3-7 with parent
*Ages 8+ welcome after parent signs and they are free to practice on their own.
