Massage Therapy and Yoga
Massage Therapy has many wonderful benefits to set it apart from other therapies. Many are now using massage as an alternative to modern medicine. It is, after all, an ancient practice that still has value to this day. Massage is a great addition to any wellness practice and routine.
One of the main benefits of massage is stress reduction. Stress causes tension in our muscles, especially in our neck and shoulders. Getting a massage can help relieve muscular tension, and it can be a great addition when one is trying to lower stress levels in their life.
Anyone who is struggling with muscular strain, tension, chronic pain, or is interested in a relaxation massage would benefit from a Swedish Massage. This is a perfect treatment for every day fatigue and wear and tear. Option for light, medium, or firm pressure to be performed, with the option to change if need be.
Prenatal massage has all the benefits of a Swedish massage, however there is extra care and support for the soon to be mother. Proper cushions and positions are utilized to make sure mother and baby are supported, safe and comfortable. Massage for pregnancy can also be very beneficial to help with the birthing process, sciatic pain, back pain and helping mother relax.
Designed to help anyone! If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Private yoga can either supplement your massage treatment or can be separate from massage. Very often what I see is a disconnection between mind and body. When we learn certain postures, it can alleviate the same complaints we get in massage. In fact, yoga can act as a self-massage. Mindful exercise is one of the best ways to compliment massage treatment, and one can see many of the same benefits you get in massage. There are many different variations and modifications one can do in yoga to help with muscular tension, aches, and soreness.
Some of the benefits you’ll see through yoga:
- Increases awareness of mind, body, spirit

Yoga Nidra means sleep with a trace of awareness. It is a relaxation technique that helps you relax while being asleep, or in a state in between wakefulness and sleep. We use iRest ® Yoga Nidra, which is research based and trauma-sensitive program designed to help with trauma recovery, but it is beneficial for all. This treatment can be done lying down or sitting up, although lying down is recommended. Depending on the comfort level of the client, there will be available blankets and bolsters to make one feel comfortable and at ease.

Please show up 10 minutes early to your first appointment to allow time to go over your intake form and 5 minutes early at additional appointments to prepare for your massage. If you are the time allotted for your massage will be cut according to how many minutes you are late. All services end as scheduled. Reducing your massage by more than 15 minutes is contraindicated and does not allow for an effective massage experience. Therefore, if you are 15 or more minutes late for your massage, this will be considered a no show, charged at full fee and services will not be provided. You may reschedule by paying a $20 non-refundable deposit for the next appointment.
