Service Add-Ons

Post Massage Power Nap  - Add a light touch/head scratch to relax at the end of your massage and take 15 min to doze or stretch before you have to restart your day.

Aromatherapy Diffuser - Choose from single oils or blends built specifically to help with a certain issue.

Cupping (silicone)/scraping (Gua Sha) - Cupping helps lift the tissue up off the bone or its attachment points (think reverse deep tissue) and helps to bring circulation to the area. Scraping also brings circulation to an area but covers larger sections of the body and helps alleviate fascial sensitivity.

Sore Muscle Salve - Made by Bekah, this blend combines the power of arnica, comfrey leaf and root, calendula, chickweed, ginger, cayenne pepper and essential oils of lavender, eucalyptus, copaiba, and rosemary to help calm and heal sore muscles and tissue.

Deep Tissue - Y'all know what this is. Deep tissue is hard on our thumbs and shoulders. That's why we charge you extra for it.

Hot Towels - Use them on your feet, your back, your shoulders... whatever makes you feel warm and fuzzy.

Taping - Kinesiotape acts as an additional layer of support in movement as well as gently lifting the skin to allow blood flow in and around the muscle, aiding in recovery.
