This is the most basic form of massage, and for some the most rewarding. It involves light, flowing strokes and leaves one feeling rejuvenated. Nothing says "relax" more than a professional Swedish massage to increase your endorphin levels and blood flow to the body. If you are new to massage, this modality can be a gentle and appealing introduction to the work of massage therapy. But even if you receive regular massage, this approach is guaranteed to satisfy.
Intuitive Deep Tissue
There are many forms of massage categorized under Deep Tissue, including Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Sculpting. Each of these modalities uses firm pressure to interact more directly with the muscles to help facilitate tension release and the stretching of muscles. This form of massage is excellent for rehabilitation, chronic pain, and overall emotional and physical wellness.
Lymph is a very important companion to the circulatory system in our bodies. When we get sick or have an injury, the lymph nodes could become overloaded and as a result, the whole lymph system could get "sluggish" in its process. This massage modality targets the lymph system to move things along, and is beneficial in reducing edema, swelling, and reducing the duration of illness or disease.
Massage during pregnancy is a safe and wonderful choice for prenatal care. Not only can it provide needed relief for backaches, leg cramps, headaches, pinched nerves, and overall soreness, but prenatal massage can also reduce stress on weight-bearing joints, improve circulation, and relax the nervous system (improving sleep). Bolsters are expertly arranged to make the massage experience blissful for every stage of pregnancy.
Complex Joint Recovery
This unique massage combines the best of three different techniques (Sports massage, Thai massage, and Deep Tissue) to target joint mobility and muscle isolation. The benefits include faster recovery from injury, more circulation to affected joints, increased flexibility, decreased pain levels, and movement-assisted tension release of muscle tissue. You can expect highest-level treatment with this phenomenal massage experience, a health plan in between sessions, and better physical results.
Beyond Balance Massage
For those that crave more out of a massage than just a physical release, the Beyond Balance massage targets all four aspects of wellness: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Therapist Nic intuitively harnesses his wide array of mind-body techniques drawing from his Beyond Balance coaching experience. The result? A well-rounded, whole-soul experience that will satisfy and inspire.
Deep Energy Cleansing
This massage is a fusion of two seemingly opposite philosophies: deep tissue and energy work. When someone is under a lot of physical and emotional stress, muscle manipulation alone may be insufficient. When combined with energy work, your capacity for somatic release is exponentially increased. This technique was created to facilitate release on multiple levels while also pacifying anxiety and depression.

The Migraine Buster
This session begins with a consultation to determine the root cause(s) of the migraine. With that awareness, the massage is then personally customized to help reduce the duration, frequency, and pain level of those pesky headaches. It is a blend of cranial-sacral and deep tissue techniques that target head and neck. An herbal blend designed specifically for migraines is also available at a discounted rate as a companion to the massage.
