Benefits of Massage

- Improved blood circulation
- Increased flexibility
- Mood enhancement
- Chemical-free relaxation
What to Expect
We currently offer 10 minute chair massages and 45 minute table massages. Your session will begin with a brief, confidential questionnaire about your medical history and your goals for massage therapy. Next, you'll talk with your massage therapist and share any issues or concerns you may have.
Your massage will take place in a private room. For the 45 minute table massage, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort (it's okay to leave some of your clothes on) and lie under a sheet or blanket. Your therapist will apply massage oil to your skin. At the end of your massage, you will have a few minutes to rest, dress, and check out.
