Swedish Massage

Probably the most common form of Massage in the West. One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The disrobed client is covered by a sheet, with only the area being worked on exposed. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive and tapping movements with the application of oil to reduce friction on the skin. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

Traditional Thai Massage

Nuad Bo Rarn is the Traditional Thai Medical Massage. Thai Massage is based upon an integration of Indian Buddhist medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Thai Massage utilizes hand techniques and a unique approach to passive movement and stretching to open up the veins or energy passages and release chronic tension from the body.  Traditional Thai Massage incorporates a spiritual dimension in its gentle and focused approach to Asian Bodywork.


This is a technique of manipulating the feet (and less frequently, the hands) in order to improve circulation, ease pain, and increase relaxation in the body. Reflexology is based on the theory that all body parts, organs and glands are associated with specific areas, called reflex zones, in the hands and feet, which serve as kind of a mini-map of the entire body. By manipulating the zone, changes can be effected in the corresponding body part. For this reason, reflexology is sometimes called “zone therapy”.
