Healing Arts Menu


Acupressure is a powerful, yet gentle bodywork therapy that focuses on key points along the body used to rebalance the body-mind connection and revitalize our life energy force. This ancient practice is similar to Acupuncture, but instead of needles it uses a much gentler form of finger pressure to activate deep healing.

Classical Swedish Massage

Classical Swedish Massage with soothing hot towels on back and legs to help stress melt away.  This is a classic massage technique that kneads away sore, tense muscles. You will leave refreshed with increased blood and lymph circulation, release of toxins from the muscles, and rejuvenation of mind.

Hot Stone Therapy (1.5 hour minimum)

Hot Stone Therapy helps to improve overall mental, spiritual, and physical wellness. Polished basalt stones are heated to a comfortable temperature by water, and the heated stones are then placed strategically along pressure points to help melt away tension. Aromatherapy oils applied to the body create a calming atmosphere and allow for the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. As stress and anxiety fade away and your mind begins to relax at the deepest level, physical wellness also begins to improve as stone therapy relieves muscle aches and pain.


Reflexology is a focused pressure technique that is directed at the feet and hands. It is based on the principle that there are reflexes on hands and feet which correspond to all parts, glands and organs of the body. Reflexology is a tremendously relaxing and soothing holistic treatment which can help to improve circulation, soothes tired feet, and encourages overall wellness.
