CranioSacral Therapy (CST) developed by osteopathic physician John E Upledger. This gentle hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system – membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas, such as low back pain. Some of the same strokes are used as with classic Swedish massage, but the movements are slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Energizing Massage is a fast-paced, stimulating massage that is excellent for people that are in a slump or feel depressed. The music used for this massage is a little louder, faster, and more lively. This is not recommended for anyone that has been under stress, but instead for those that just can’t seem to get going.
Gong Sound Bath During a Sound Bath you remain fully clothed and typically lay on the floor. These solo or group experiences combine an Earth Gong with a vibrational lift from Tibetan Singing Bowls and tingsha, creating an opportunity to release old patterns and create new ones transforming us physically, energetically and spiritually. Solo baths can be enjoyed while laying on the massage table.

Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. It uses a technique commonly called “palm healing” or “hands-on-healing” as a form of alternative medicine, and is sometimes classified as an Oriental medicine by certain professional medical organizations. It is used as a complementary therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental diseases. While the client lies down, comfortably clothed, hands are intuitively placed on or near the body to transfer universal energy (i.e., reiki) in the form of qi (Japanese: ki) through the palms, which allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
Singing Bowls Meditation Balnaces and clams the nervous system, leaving you refreshed and relaxed.
Sports Massage is specifically designed for individuals who engage in rigorous physical activity and place high demands on their bodies. The massage therapist uses a combination of techniques aimed at helping muscles and tissues to repair or recover faster and to maintain flexibility, thereby keeping the athlete injury-free and performing at a high level. Facilitated stretching can be incorporated into the session. Ninety minutes is highly recommended to cover all muscle groups.
Swedish Massage is a combination of long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage oil or lotion to produce a very gentle and relaxing massage for the client. Swedish massage is often recommended for someone who has never experienced professional massage.
Theta Healing is a holistic healing technique using quantum physics to access healing energy vibrations. The practitioner is a conduit for the healing energy that is passed to the client. Visualization and meditation are incorporated into this healing practice.
Tuning Fork Therapy Tuning forks come from the field of Sound Therapy. They can bring the body back into harmony using vibration. Much like singing can make us feel better, tuning forks work more specifically by vibrating each chakra and bringing it into perfect harmony.
There are tuning forks for each chakra of the body. Each chakra has a unique frequency and each chakra has a specific tuning fork set to that perfect frequency. These forks dissolve negative energy and bring us back into balance. Two different kinds of tuning forks are used: Weighted and Unweighted. Weighted are excellent for reducing pain, reducing inflammation and inducing relaxation. Unweighted are excellent for mental, spiritual and emotional balancing, improving energy fields, improving physical health, and helping to create inner harmony and wholeness
