Therapeutic Massage is used when a client is seeking massage as a part of their regular health and wellness routine. Some of the many benefits to massage are stress reduction, lowering blood pressure, enhanced immunity, improved circulation and the lessening of depression and anxiety. The therapist may combine many different modalities to achieve the client’s goal.
This refreshing and relaxing massage relieves stress and tension aches for pure relaxation. The Swedish massage techniques rejuvenate both body and mind. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue massage 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 do not get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment. 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.
Acupressure or Shiatsu is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments. Acupuncture and Acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure. When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, detoxify the body for greater health and beauty, and tone facial and back muscles.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the client while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. Please note that Hot Stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. You shouldn't get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as it may trigger a hot flash.
Raindrop Technique uses a sequence of nine therapeutic-grade essential oils that have been chosen for their positive effects on all major systems of the body. These highly anti-oxidant essential oils help protect the body against viruses and bacteria, boosting and supporting your immune system. Raindrop Technique will help you relax and decrease stress while promoting overall health, vitality, and longevity.
The nine essential oils are applied to the soles of your feet utilizing a technique called Vitaflex, targeting the points corresponding to the spine, major glands and digestive organs. Each oil is then applied in "drops" along the spine and lightly massaged into the back and neck. A soothing, hot towel is then draped over the entire back to close the session, allowing the oils to penetrate deep into the skin and muscles. Many clients find this type of session more effective than deep tissue massage as the oils continue to work in the body for five to seven days afterwards. Please note that the Raindrop Technique is not recommended for those sensitive to essential oils and aromas.

These aromatherapeutic uses are only part of the remarkable essential oils story. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal, cosmetic, and emotionally uplifting properties.

Using only natural ingredients, these advanced skin and hair care solutions make it easy to enjoy the beautiful benefits of essential oils every day: lavender essential oil and frankincense essential oil.
Create deep spiritual awareness
Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants to transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. Research shows that the pure constituents in these oils stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. To enhance your spiritual practice, dilute and apply meditative, empowering essential oils directly to wrists, feet, and behind the ears, or diffuse in a quiet space. Popular essential oils and blends for spiritual focus include: Sacred Frankincense, White Angelica™, Egyptian Gold™, Exodus™, Inspiration™ and The Gift™.
Star Flower Essences
& Gemstone Essences
Flower Essences are vibrationally infused solutions made from living, organic, wild crafted flowers. These essences carry what is known as an “energetic signature" or vibration of the flower that can be transmitted to the user. This energy or vibration can positively influence imbalances within the body or energetic field of the user.
Flower essences convey the specific code or pattern that resides within each flower. All of a plant’s energy is focused in creating this ultimate genetic expression to ensure the continuance of that species. Their beneficial powers come from the life force inherent in the flowers themselves. Through unique, sacred process, the vibrational signature held within the blossom is imprinted in the pure water used to make the essence, thus charging the water with the divine imprint of the flower's particular characteristics and qualities.
Paracelsus, a great healer of the 16th century, collected dew from flowers to treat his patients. Dr. Edward Bach, a modern pioneer in this field, researched flower essences extensively in the 1930's, and created the Bach Flower Remedies. It is believed, in the ancient civilization of Lemuria, flower essences were used to promote the evolution of consciousness, as disease was rare.
Gemstone Essences are elixirs infused with the unique vibrations of specially selected precious and semiprecious gemstones. Each stone carries within its crystalline structure specific vibrational frequencies and attributes that can affect the energetic fields near it. Crystal is the flower of the mineral world, the peak of perfection in matter. Gemstones and crystals have been used throughout human history for healing and enhancement.

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning. Reflexology can be easily incorporated into a regular massage while the therapists massages the feet and hands.
Vitaflex is a method of healing touch that stimulates the electrical currents of the body to bring about healing, primarily on the hands and feet. It works as a healing modality on its own, but also works even better in combination with essential oils. It is most commonly used in conjunction with the Raindrop Technique (above). Please note that Vitaflex is not recommended for those sensitive to essential oils and aromas.
