Deep Tissue Massage: This traditional therapeutic
massage focuses on particular areas of pain for the client. It is generally not
a full body massage, as the therapist will focus on the needs of each
particular client. It is designed to loosen up muscles and connective tissue by
using a deeper pressure on specific areas of pain or discomfort. This is a
wonderful massage if you have chronic areas of pain or if you are in pain from

Swedish massage, as your therapist will be affecting deeper layers of tissue.

activity. This is a great treatment if you are physically active and want to
increase your performance and flexibility, while still receiving the benefits
of relaxation and increased circulation of a Swedish massage.

Swedish massages, but want to try something new, this is the massage for you.
Esalen massage will bring you to a deep level of relaxation. Your therapist
will use a variety of Swedish strokes, but will also bring more a flow into the
massage. It is not broken up part by part like a normal massage, so all of the
strokes flow together to leave you feeling energetically balanced as well.
therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching of the
skull and sacrum to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes
the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal
area. Craniosacral therapists can most
easily feel the CSR in the body by lightly touching the base of the skull or
the sacrum. During a session, they feel for disturbances in the rate,
amplitude, symmetry, and quality of flow of the CSR. A therapist uses gentle
touch to assess and balance the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. Once the
cerebrospinal fluid moves freely, the body's natural healing responses can function.

that uses simple hands-on and visualization techniques, with the goal of
improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki practitioners are trained

increase energy, and relieve the pain and symptoms of health conditions.

- Reflexology: Reflexology is a therapeutic
method of relieving pain and discomfort by stimulating pressure points on the
feet which reflect areas of the body. This controlled pressure quells the
sensation of pain and can alleviate the source of the discomfort. By means of
this touching therapy, any part of the body that is the source of pain,
illness, or potential debility can be strengthened through the application of
pressure at the respective foot or hand location. Reflexology is also as
effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it is for
relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.
