A custom therapeutic massage is unique to each individual blending all of the benefits of a relaxing Swedish Massage (long gentle gliding strokes) with the therapeutic benefits of Deep Tissue Massage (focusing on the layers of muscle tissue and fascia to release acute or chronic muscle tension) in conjunction with Hot Stone Massage (warmed basalt stones) on specific areas and Facial Massage (easing facial tension).
Prior to each treatment, the therapist discusses areas of concern and tailors a massage especially for your needs. The custom therapeutic massage allows the therapist to fine-tune the amount of pressure and duration spent in each area.
A custom therapeutic massage will also help to increase your circulation and open channels of blood flow so your lymphatic system cleanses your body. The increased blood flow will also aid in nourishing the soft tissues.
Massage therapy is a proven, natural way to reduce stress levels in the body by releasing endorphins that help calm the nervous system. The massage therapist will take into account your personal needs and create an experience that will help relieve anxiety and stress-related disorders.
Custom Therapeutic Massage Benefits -
Hot stone massage is an ancient technique modernized by Mary Hannigan-Nelson's La Stone teachings in 1992. Basalt stones are heated and used by the therapist as an extension of their hands to massage your muscles. The warmed stones allow for a release of tension and stress which is both relaxing and therapeutic.

Lomi Lomi is a specialized type of holistic massage that has its roots in ancient Polynesian traditions. Lomi Lomi massage therapists use a combination of traditional Native Hawaiian techniques and a belief in sharing mana (life energy) in the present moment. A Lomi Lomi massage therapist can help you activate your mana to feel better, improve your health, and gain spiritual balance.
Lomi Lomi massage therapists work with the life energy called mana, which bears many similarities to qi in Chinese acupressure and ki in Japanese Reiki. They also use techniques similar to those used by Western therapists, such as rubbing, kneading, and stroking.
Benefits of Lomi Lomi Massage Include:
Unlike other forms of massage, Lomi Lomi involves full-body sweeping motions with two areas sometimes being massaged at once. You will likely be covered with a small towel with all extremities uncovered. Women's breasts will be covered at all times and stomach massage is desired but optional. The approach is holistic, creating a mind/body connection to treat you on all levels: mind, body, emotion, and spirit.
Reiki is a spiritual healing practice that helps your system balance itself. Balance is always a good thing, because your body can only self-heal when your nervous system is balanced.
By encouraging your system toward balance, Reiki can help you in any situation, even when it isn't the only help you need.
Balance means different things at different times. If you are tired, you will feel refreshed. If you are anxious, you will feel serene. If you are distressed, you will feel comforted.
Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you will discover a renewed clarity and purpose. These subjective changes come with physical changes associated with deep relaxation, such as a slower heart rate and easier breathing.
The first session usually brings improvement, and the benefits grow with repeated sessions. In emergencies or during intensive care, patients often show benefit within a few minutes.
Regardless of the challenges you face, Reiki can help you, and Reiki can help you face your challenges more effectively and with greater poise.
Research Data Shows Reiki Treatment can be Effective for the Following:
Reflexology, also known as zone therapy or acupressure, dates back to ancient China and Egypt, and is documented in ancient medical texts as far back as 4000 B.C. Similar to acupuncture's potential benefits and methodology, reflexology uses pressure rather than needles to activate points and organs throughout the body to relieve pain, stimulate circulation, and bring balance to the bodily systems.
Much like acupuncture, reflexology is not based on pure scientific fact, but rather a millennia of trial and error, patterns, and an elaborate mapping of the energies of the body. Its benefits range from stress relief and relaxation to increased blood circulation.
Generalities aside, just because we cannot prove a response does not necessarily negate the wide ranging potential benefits that reflexology may provide. Reflexology is said to stimulate individual organs and bodily symptoms, remove blockages, and reverse disease.
In line with a traditional holistic mentality, if we view disease as an imbalance or blockage in the body versus a diagnosis, this means once we remove this blockage and allow the energy to flow freely, the symptoms will subside and health will be restored.
Benefits of Reflexology:
Reflexology is most commonly practiced on the feet where the meridian channels end and all come together. Concentrated in these areas, we can access every organ and system in the body.
When it comes to our feet, these points can be accessed through the soles of our feet as well as the tops. Simplified, there are four main areas of the soles of the feet that correspond to organs relating to the head and neck, spine, chest, and pelvic areas. The left foot corresponds to the left side of the body, and the right foot, the right side of the body.
Celluma is an innovative way to use the newest LED (light emitting diode) therapy treatment by speeding tissue repair and revitalizing cells. The device is backed and cleared by the FDA for the treatment of pain and skin concerns. LEDs are the light source that powers healing in the Celluma. Just as a plant is nourished from the sun, LEDs penetrate our skin and trigger our body's natural healing process.
Research has Demonstrated that Celluma Offers the Following Benefits:
Celluma addresses skin health for those who are looking for its anti-aging benefits and acne treatment.
Anti-Aging - If your skin is looking less than refreshed and bright, Celluma is a great option. It tightens saggy skin
and improves fine lines and wrinkles in addition to combating and smoothing the skin's texture and
overall quality. The wavelengths stimulate collagen and elastin production which gives you a non-toxic
and non-invasive approach to skin care.
Acne - Acne is a skin condition that is notoriously hard to treat. Celluma is a gentle and non-abrasive alternative to
healing acne. If you are tired of chemicals and the side effects they bring, step into the light! The LED
light destroys acne-causing bacteria to clear current blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Get
clearer, smoother, and more radiant skin with Celluma.
Celluma for Pain Relief
Whether you are trying to manage chronic or acute pain, Celluma is the ideal natural and drug-free solution. Because
LED's are able to penetrate our skin layers on a deep level, the wavelengths are absorbed by the photoreceptors in the
mitochondria. As they are triggered, ATP synthesis occurs as a result which fuels cellular energy and rapidly supports
tissue repair and reduces pain and inflammation.
