it's fall - time to detox
This aromatic relaxation massage is a full body massage and scrub with a custom blend of the essential oils of Pine, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Melissa to warm and melt away sore tired muscles.
A custom blended Bon Vital’ Salt Glow is applied to help alleviate the dry, chapped skin and is followed by decadent Body Butter to leave even the driest skin supple, nourished, and smooth. Finished with an application of Anti-Fluid Gel. This treatment is also fantastic in relieving general fluid retention, bloating or swelling.
adventure spa signature massage
This aromatherapy signature wellness massage is a combination of several massage styles, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stones, Reflexology, Lomi-Lomi, Liquid Exfoliation, and Shiatsu, each tailored to address specific needs. Warm compresses and signature essential oils are incorporated into your treatment. This massage creates a sensory experience that can be relaxing, uplifting, and detoxifying.
classic spa massage
This treatment delivers superb therapy for high-stress individuals in need of nurturing, incorporating a blend of classical Swedish massage techniques designed for relaxation. Warm towels and aromatic products from Cures by Avance are used to enhance the soothing effects. You will notice improved muscle tone, increased circulation, and an overall sense of relaxation.
deep muscular ease
Firm pressure techniques are used throughout this massage to encourage change in the deeper muscles of your body. These techniques encourage your body's natural healing ability and will help in reducing chronic pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing tension in your body. Warm towels and products from Cures by Avance contain analgesic properties which aid in further easing your muscles. -- This is a full-body massage...If more detailed work is needed to just your back and neck, please choose our Tension Zone Massage.
tension zone massage
Massage for back, neck, and shoulders. This is a more detailed and sometimes more aggressive style of massage that "really gets in there." Deep work is performed in areas where tension most accumulates. Finishes with Foot Reflexology to release blocked energy in the body overall.
energy therapy with tuning forks
Energy therapy is based on the belief that everyone has a "life force", and that the body needs to sustain its balance for optimum health. Anytime you experience emotional or physical illness, it indicates that your life force has simply become unbalanced. By using specific rhythms and frequencies with the tuning forks, you can downshift your brain from the beta state (normal consciousness) to the theta state (relaxed consciousness) and even the delta state (where internal healing can occur). Once your energy field has been restored, your body will follow.
vitamin c-infused massage
A customized massage with a tailored approach to pressure. Hydrating oil containing Vitamin C and L-ascorbic acid is used to repair damaged skin as it creates new skin cells, protects against pollution, age, and future sun exposure.
liquid exfoliating massage
Utilizing Cures by Avance Marine Oil Body Glow and exfoliating techniques, this treatment brightens dull, dehydrated skin. A customized massage with a tailored approach to pressure follows your exfoliation, leaving you relaxed and radiant.
lomi-lomi "hawaiian" massage
Passed down through Hawaiian traditions, this ancient therapy is a sacred healing art which brings life flow and energy, while connecting the body, mind, and soul. The unique flowing, vibrant, and deeply relaxing massage strokes are more vigorous, rhythmical, and faster than Swedish massage, incorporating more forearm work.
warm stone massage
As warm stones glide over your body, heat radiates deeply into the muscles to provide stress reduction, deep relaxation, and relief from physical pain. I use the stones as an extension of my hands and also gently place them on some of the body's energy points, including hands, in-between toes, and along the back.
the celeste massage
When you choose this massage, it will be to thank a client who has not missed her monthly massage with me since November 2002.
She takes our Classic Spa Massage and adds a hot stone treatment for her back. Just enough leg massage with cocoa butter lotion to soothe and hydrate her skin. Lots of foot massage with reflexology points. After the flip, she loves a long soothing scalp massage with pressure at the base of her head. A sinus relief facial massage leads into long firm pressure massage strokes on her neck, working out those stubborn knots as needed. Lots of hand massage. A few stretching techniques on her arms to keep them flexible (first ailment she came to me with was pain in her arms). And last but definitely not least, she added a super scrubby sugary/salt treatment (removed with steamy towels) for her feet, and her favorite foot massage with thick body butter...ending with a bit more head massage. Thank you Celeste!
