Aromatherapy Massage is the perfect pairing of two ancient alternative healing modalities, Aromatherapy and Massage Therapy. In Aromatherapy Massage, essential oils are incorporated into the oil that is massaged into your skin. Alternately, essential oils may be diffused into the air.
Aromatherapy is used to relieve tension, reduce pain and inflammation, influence mood, ease cramping, aid digestion, relieve sinus congestion and far too many other benefits to mention here.
Foot Reflexology is based on the theory that specific areas on the feet are reflexes to other parts on the body including the internal organs. The reflexes are stimulated using the thumbs or fingers. If you love getting your tired, sore feet rubbed, this is for you!

it helps to improve blood circulation and stimulate nerves, traditional Malay massage involves stretching, stepping, long kneading strokes and pressure applied to every part of the body, from the head, face, abdomen, body to the toes of the feet.
Swedish is a good choice for a first massage.
Swedish Massage is the most widely practiced and best known Western type of massage therapy. Swedish massage consists of 5 basic strokes:
Effleurage – Long, luxurious gliding stroke
Petrissage – Kneading stroke
Tapotement – Percussion or tapping
Friction – Rapid, repetitious, heat producing stroke
Vibration – Vibrating or jostling
Although wonderful for relaxing and revitalizing, Swedish massage can also release muscle tension, increase circulation of blood and lymph and dissolve scar tissue adhesions.
Deep Tissue refers to a number of different massage techniques used to access deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia. It is often used to reduce pain and inflammation and to help rehabilitate injuries.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy searches out and deactivates painful fibrous nodules in your muscles and connective tissue. These exquisitely tender points may also refer pain to other parts of your body in predictable patterns.
Typically, your therapist will do a combination of applying static pressure on the trigger points and stretching and manipulating the area to soften the tight, painful tissue.
