Integrative massage therapy is based on the idea that not just one massage therapy technique is right for every person or can solve every problem. Integrative massage involves the integration of hands-on therapeutic techniques from a number of different modalities such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, and Trigger Point.
Heat therapy (warm Bamboo sticks, hot stones, and heat packs); aroma therapy essential oils and blends; MediCupping™ (Vacuum Therapy); range of motion stretching and muscle release techniques; and warm or cold pain relieving gels can also be integrated into the session as needed at no additional charge. The specific combination of therapeutic techniques depends on the individual, as each session is customized to gain the best therapeutic result for the client. Your feet will enjoy being wrapped in hot towels at the end of this massage; a special treat from me!
* To enhance the Integrative Massage, add an Aromatherapy Essential Oil or Blend for only $6!
Traditional Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It is also called Thai Yoga massage because hands, knees, legs, and feet are used to move the body through a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, which is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressure along energy lines. Guided meditation and breathing are offered to assist in releasing muscle tension. Energy clearing, aromatherapy, and heat therapy (Thai herbal balls) are intertwined in this rejuvenating experience!
Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, and is performed on a cushioned mat placed on the floor. As such, the client remains fully clothed during the session and should wear comfortable, movable clothing. There is constant body contact between the giver (therapist) and the receiver (client), but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched, and rocked.
Traditional Thai massage helps to release stress and relieve pain, and is an excellent form of massage therapy to use for post-workouts. Traditional Thai massage benefits include stress reduction; improved relaxation; enhanced circulatory system; increased flexibility and range of motion; and increased energy.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage where heated basalt stones are placed at specific sites on the body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in the muscles.

Bamboo Fusion Massage
Bamboo Fusion Massage is an exotic and innovative way to provide a full body Integrative Massage using warm bamboo / rattan tools of different shapes and sizes.

Have you got issues in your tissues?? MediCupping™ (Vacuum Therapy) utilizes glass or plastic cups of various sizes and a vacuum machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using a variety of techniques such as gliding, shaking, twisting, or rotating while gently pulling up on the cup. Some are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. Larger cups are used for the broad areas of the back, and a strong vacuum will mimic the rolling action of deep tissue massage without the discomfort. The movement may be long and draining or circular and stimulating for stubborn knots and areas of rigid tissue.
MediCupping™ wakes the body-up and helps the client feel invigorated, at the same time producing profound levels of healing through nervous system sedation. Again, this technique is done by creating a suction and vacuum pressure which is used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions, bring blood flow and hydration to tissue, release deep inflammation, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
Increased local blood supply to the muscles and skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away via the lymph. Conditions of chronic and acute pain can be relieved with minimal discomfort and tense muscles softened quickly and easily. MediCupping™ is wonderfully effective in releasing restrictions in fascia and scar tissue, such as plantar fasciitis. The action on the nervous system is sedating and people often fall into a deep state of relaxation. On a deeper therapeutic level, this nervous system sedation is beneficial for those with high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, chronic headaches, fibromyalgia, and neuralgia.
Vacuum therapy is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out from deep in the tissues to be released. The skin can turn red with strong movements, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface. As such, some temporary discoloration (not bruising) may occur, but will only last a short period of time. Application of liniments, analgesics, and essential oil blends immediately after treatment will enable absorption of the product deep into the tissue.
* To target a specific body area only, schedule a 30 or 45 minute session.
MediCupping Face Lift / Drainage
MediCupping™ Face Lifting / Drainage (Vacuum Therapy) utilizes glass and plastic micro-cups and a vacuum machine which creates a suction across the face and neck that mimics the pumping movement of lymphatic drainage. This technique eliminates the buildup of wastes and fluids in the face and neck by opening and clearing the drainage pathways in the head and neck. Vacuum therapy on the face is remarkable for relieving sinus congestion and for draining stagnant fluids to ease puffiness, while eyebrows can often lift back up to the brow line!
The muscles of the face benefit greatly from reduced tension and tightness, easing expression lines, and loosening rigid muscles associated with TMJ disorders. Lines, wrinkles, and scar tissue will soften with this technique and rosaceous or congested skin can quickly clear. This technique is also a perfect preparation and recovery protocol for most facial surgeries.
Note: MediCupping™ Face Lifting / Drainage (Vacuum Therapy) is not recommended for clients who have received Botox or similar injections and/or fillers. However, to pre-treat and help eliminate the buildup of waste and fluid in the face, clients can receive treatments 2 weeks prior to these types of injections and/or fillers.
The number of treatments vary from person to person as each client will have a different level of stagnation. The results of this technique is cumulative; therefore, it is recommended to begin with a series of 6 - 10 treatments, with 2 – 5 days between treatments, until the series is complete. Thereafter, continue with a monthly regimen of 1 – 2 times a month.
Enjoy a relaxing 60 or 90 minute Couples Massage with a friend or loved one! Includes a refreshing aromatherapy foot soak before the session begins. Complimentary hot tea or wine, with a food paring completes this rejuvenating service!

Also, Chair Massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
