Why Massage + Yoga?
 Massage and Yoga both excel at countering the effects of stress on the body. Massage shines at treating constricted, injured or knotted tissue conditions that limit our function while Yoga excels at treating the movement patterns that confine our well being.  We use combinations of massage, stretching, yoga, to bring out your best self.  We know the body wants to heal and create balance and by working in concert with the body intelligence we see extraordinary change. We've searched high and low to find the most relevant bodywork techniques and contantly develop our own. In particular we've developed a unique assessment approach that informs our decisions to provide the best course of treatent. And we consistently see success combining Massage + Yoga to facilitate desired change.

Our clients enjoy less stress, better sleep, less pain, and more energy.

Much of what people experience as 'Muscle' Pain, Spasm or Ache is a disturbance pattern held in 'Fascia'. Fascia gives our movement continuity and distributes forces through a process called 'tensegrity'. Done properly deep tissue massage restores fascia to full function and ease. To create the most advanced DEEP TISSUE massage we've adopted a Barefoot Massage appraoch that uses a fusion of many modalities including Swedish, MyoFascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Strain-Counter-Strain, Craino-Sacral Therapy, Stretch Therapy, Meridian Stretching and Nutrition for NeuroImmune Health.  By adding Barefoot techniques we gain advantages that need to be experienced! Combined with infrared heat and magnesium infused oils clients experience far less soreness than typical with deep tissue massage.  These are DELUXE treatments usually not less than 90 minutes.

To find the BEST TREATMENT PLAN for clients we adopted Stretch Therapy and Neurobiologix Advanced Nutrition.  Stretch Therapy offers an interactive treatment where the client learns to relieve patterns of pain and discomfort in minutes. Unlike generic stretching for sports, Stretch Therapy was created to resolve chronic pain.  We have found amazing results across a diverse range of clients.  Group Yoga Classes and Private Yoga also offer tremendous value for your health.
