Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain in areas of the body by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands.

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).

Craniosacral Therapy is a technique used to feel, interpret and remove tension from the scalp/cranium, spine and lower back/sacrum. This technique relaxes the nerve endings and can improve structural imbalances in the body.

Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short -- 10 or 15 minutes -- and focuses on your back, shoulders, neck, and arms. It is done over clothes and doesn't require any massage oil. For chair massage, you are seated in a special chair with your face resting in a cradle, with supports for your arms. Your back and neck completely relax while the therapist relieves muscle tension using a combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point Therapy.
