CLASSIC SWEDISH & AROMATHERAPY
This classic, full-body massage utilizes organic aromatherapy essential oils for maximum benefits. A relaxing gentle-to-firm massage relieves tension, soothes tired muscles, enhances circulation and improves muscle tone. The perfect choice for first timers.
DEEP TISSUE & HERBAL THERAPY
For those familiar with massage, this stronger, deep-tissue massage utilizes a steamed bolus filled with locally grown organic healing plants and herbs. The herbal bolus is placed upon targeted problem areas, such as shoulders, legs and the lower back. This promotes the release of toxins and relief from recurring muscular tension, strain and inflammation.
An exceptional therapeutic treatment incorporates neuromuscular and trigger points to treat muscular imbalance and structural-alignment problems, which are the causes of chronic pain. The alternative use of hot and cold stones for tissue repair and stress reduction may be applied.
HOT & COLD STONE MASSAGE RITUAL
Melt into relaxation with this heady combination of massage and nurturing. Penetrating heat from warm, smooth, basalt stones relieves tension in targeted areas, while an ancient indigenous smudging ritual balances the emotions, calms the mind and renews energy.
HOLISTIC RAINDROP RITUAL
This ritual involves dripping ten pharmaceutical-grade essential oils along the spine in sequential order to encourage the body’s structural and electrical alignment and fight viruses. Tibetan reflexology and specific massage techniques help the osmosis process and encourage the body to heal itself. Excellent for boosting the immune system, releasing muscle spasms and reducing inflammation. This treatment brings renewed energy to your tired, travel-weary body.
Calling upon the centuries-old Chinese science of reflexology, pressure is strategically applied to various parts of your feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands and other vital systems of the body. Reflexology is believed to increase circulation and release blocked energy, relieving stress and resetting your body’s natural equilibrium.
SCALP & FOOT MASSAGE THERAPY
Forget the hustle bustle of the world as we treat your head and feet. Following a warm- oil scalp massage, your head is wrapped in a warm towel as your therapist performs a foot reflexology treatment.
Thai massage is often called “yoga massage” because the body is gently stretched into yoga-like positions, and if necessary, vigorous pressure is applied while pulling and stretching the body. Some of the benefits of Thai massage include release from stress and muscle pain, improved circulation of the blood and the lymphatic system, body realignment and better flexibility and digestion. Wear loose clothing.

The Japanese word Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy.” Gentle therapeutic touch promotes the healing process, restoring harmony to mind, body and spirit and enhancing deep relaxation. It can help you sleep and reduce high blood pressure, migraines, stress and pain.
REPLENISHING OIL CANDLE MASSAGE
A moment of complete relaxation for body and mind amidst a halo of light and the delicately oriental scents of West Indian Cedar and Neroli essential oils. The moisturizing, antioxidant-rich, anti-aging benefits and the enveloping texture of a pure melted soy oil candle provides a new perception of touch and an unforgettable pampering experience that stimulates all senses.
ASHIATSU BAREFOOT MASSAGE
A remarkable deep-tissue massage in which therapists use the heel, the arch of the foot and sometimes the entire surface of the foot to apply a more concentrated, firm pressure, along with a less intense force where it’s needed for longer periods. Helps relax, soften and lengthen rigid muscles, eliminates toxins from veins and lymph channels, reduces inflammation, increases blood circulation and leaves a feeling of well being.
Craniosacral therapy is a holistic practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in your body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.

A special stretch-mark-preventive oil is used to give elasticity and nourishment to the skin. Choose between rose and lavender scents.
Watsu is a combination of Shiatsu massage and stretching in our specially designed Watsu pool.

HOLISTIC CRYSTAL LIGHT THERAPY
The focus of this therapy is treating the person as a whole.
