"The facility is beautiful and clean. They did an amazing job with the ambiance and atmosphere. Melissa at the front desk was courteous and the owners took time to speak with every customer who walked out the door to check on their experience. Definitely the most personable and welcoming people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Brittany and Brandi did a great job with our massages. They made sure we were comfortable and satisfied the whole time and at no point did they make us feel as if they were rushing us. Without a doubt, one of the best massages I've ever had and I already can't wait to go back!"

"It was amazing.. even tho the had a mix up with the dates.. we came in without an appointment and the staff was so wonderful and helpful and booked us the same day! This is when everyone needs to make an appointment about a month in advance. The Massagest’s were willing to stay extra time do get our couples massage done. Great staff, great service, great massages.. we seriously appreciated it and will be coming back and definitely recommend this place to our friends and family."-Liana

For thousands of years, Eastern healers have used pressure-point massage to balance the body. Shiatsu is the Japanese version. The idea is that chi, or life energy, flows through the body in 14 meridians. When the meridians are blocked, physical or emotional problems result. During a shiatsu massage, you lie on a floor mat while the therapist gently rocks and stretches your body and applies finger and thumb pressure to points. The purpose can be to stimulate or to subdue energy, making shiatsu invigorating as well as relaxing. Shiatsu treats your whole being rather than a single aspect of your body. Spas recommend it for stubborn knots, sports injuries, and back pain, and say the pressure can help trigger the release of chemicals, like cortisone, that help the body heal itself. Shiatsu means “finger pressure” in Japanese, but that doesn’t begin to cover it. Shiatsu therapists use their thumbs as well as elbows, knees, and feet to apply strategic pressure to muscles and connective tissues. Practitioners of Zen or Five Elements shiatsu therapy use the pressure-point massage for another reason. Namely, to balance the body’s chi, a practice that comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine. In both cases, you typically wear loose-fitting clothing, and it’s done on a floor mat. Expect intense pressure and a fair bit of movement as the therapist stretches your muscles and alleviates knots and pain. While it’s languid enough to ultimately relax your muscles, it’s not likely something you’ll sleep through. Some therapists will spend a lot of time on your hara (stomach), which is considered the root of imbalance in Five Elements shiatsu.

I have been working with desk jockeys for 15 years as a massage therapist.  I help with all the pain and discomfort business people tend to have from stress, typing emails all day, and frequent air travel. I am certified in medical massage and did my advanced massage training at Lauterstein-Conway which was known as the best massage school in the US at the time. I am also an esthetician but do not practice much of that privately.  As an esthetician, I am occassionally a featured writer with Dermascope magazine.

"We had the couples massage special and it was lovely. Tatiana (facialist) and Carmina (masseuse) we’re very friendly and did a great job. We felt so much better afterward. We got the wine and chocolates and they let us hang and relax and drink as much wine as we wanted. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend it. No issues with Groupon and I was able to book over the phone."-Virginia I.
Reflexology is the practice of stimulating points on the feet that are thought to correspond to specific parts of the body. It is based on a reflexology chart or “zone theory” that maps out the body on the foot. It is not an everyday foot massage. Reflexology involves kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel, and pushing deep into the arch. These are just a few of the many small, intense movements you’ll experience. While some spots may feel more sensitive than others, reflexologists will often say that pain indicates blocks in the energy pathways or weak organs and isn’t due to the pressure of the touch. In addition to manipulating the pressure points on the foot, reflexologists sometimes work on hands or ears to trigger relaxation. Some people say they feel hot or cold sensations. During a reflexology session, you’re clothed and seated or lying down while the therapist rubs, presses on, and squeezes points on your feet. The therapist may concentrate on specific areas to alleviate ailments (if you have sinus trouble, she’ll focus on your toes) or work on the whole foot with the aim of strengthening every system in the body.
