Therapeutic Massage (60, 75, or 90 Minute Sessions)
An integrated approach to massage therapy using multiple techniques in a single session such as: myofascial release, Swedish, sports or deep tissue work, relaxation, and soft tissue injury techniques. The goal is to create a balanced treatment that is tailored to fit the individual's needs and strive for a deeply therapeutic massage that promotes positive change every time.
Hot Stone Swedish Massage (60, 75 or 90 Minute Sessions)
Try this ancient healing technique of applying smooth, flat basalt stones that are hydro-heated and massaged over your tired and overworked body. The warm stones calms the senses and bring relief by melting away muscle tension. Although the massage is done with adequate pressure, it is not a deep tissue massage.
Neck Restoration Massage (30 Minute Session)
A targeted 30 minute treatment designed for those dealing with neck and upper body tension. The main focus of this treatment is to provide relief and increase the range of motion in your neck and shoulders.
Hand, Feet & Scalp Massage (50 Minute Session)
A relaxing alternative to a full body massage. This treatment starts with a luxurious foot scrub that is removed with comforting warm towels. Next up is your scalp massage. This tension reducing scalp massage can be done with or without essential oils. Now that you are feeling relaxed, the work begins on your hard working hands - using an all natural, luxurious hydrating cream.. Lastly, the feet. Your often neglected feet that have been with you every step of the way get the massage treatment they deserve.
Prenatal/Postpartum Massage (60, 75 or 90 Minute Sessions)
Massage tailored to meet the needs of pregnant women and new mothers. It can help reduce some of the physical and emotional stress that can accompany pregnancy and motherhood. Assist with developing greater body awareness and mobility, promote relaxation, and stress reduction while relieving muscle tension; especially in the lower back, neck, hips and legs.
If you are currently receiving oncology treatment, or have ever received treatment for cancer, the safest massage is with a licensed massage therapist with advanced training in the specifics of cancer, cancer treatment and how to safely adapt the massage for people at all stages of the cancer journey. Oncology massage is not a different set of techniques, but a variation in the treatment. Massage during treatment for cancer can be extremely beneficial in helping to deal with the side effects of cancer and/or cancer treatments. If you are in treatment for cancer or just out of treatment and are interested in receiving massage, or have questions, please email or call.
Palliative & Hospice Massage
A common thread running through both palliative care and hospice is that patients eligible for these services have received a terminal diagnosis. Palliative care can begin as soon as someone receives a life-limiting diagnosis. Hospice care begins when the life expectancy is six months or less. Palliative massage provides comfort and support to those diagnosed with a serious illness (curative or terminal). Both hospice and palliative care emphasize quality of life, that is, comfort rather than cure. This supports the patient both physically and mentally, providing relief to sore muscles and impacts quality of life by increasing overall relaxation. Home visits can be arranged.
Very easy to contact Laura (owner). I called and got her right away, and she was very accommodating with my schedule. After filling out a brief form, Laura sat with me and was very thorough in obtaining my history as well as preferences and expectations. Treatment room is beautiful and comfortable/peaceful and very clean (big plus for me!).
I had some specific issues/body areas I needed addressed. I was nervous because I have some chronic pain but Laura was gentle and communicated with me throughout to gage my comfort level.
At the end, I was not rushed out, and she took the time to discuss strategies to help me manage my pain and tightness going forward. It is obvious to me that Laura is very passionate and skilled at her profession - I plan to go back very soon : ) Stephanie S.
"Laura is wonderful! She’s professional, warm and caring. I’ve been receiving massage from her for chronic neck and back issues due to old injuries. I like how she not only addresses those areas with various orthopedic techniques like deep tissue or myofascial release, but also combines that work with a restorative full-body massage. I leave feeling completely at ease and de-stressed. I am so happy to have found her and will continue monthly massage as part of my self-care regimen".
