Swedish Massage -Swedish is the classic spa massage - a rhythmic flow of mostly long, sliding and gliding strokes that promotes relaxation, increases circulation, and reduces pain and stiffness throughout the body. The pressure can vary from light to quite firm depending upon the recipient's preferences and sensitivities. We recommend it to anyone - particularly those who have never before received a professional massage, those who are looking simply to relax, and those who do not care to experience any therapeutic pain or challenging sensations during their massage.
Deep Tissue Massage -More therapeutic in nature, Deep Tissue Massage is the most popular modality with athletes, bodybuilders, people with naturally tight and tense musculature, and those who just can't relax without taking a good beating. Deep Tissue work often incorporates many of the same techniques of a Swedish Massage but with greater pressure delivered to the deeper layers of muscle and fascia that make up the complex system of soft tissue that we employ to mobilize our joints and bones. This modality is often painful in regions that have become tighter and more tense than what is ideal, but it is often the best means of releasing that tension and restoring a healthier level of openness, blood flow, and relaxation. Half-hour $50, One hour $85, One and a half-hour $120, Two hour $150 or for My Prana Members: Half-hour $30, One hour $60, One and a half-hour $85, Two hour $110
Hot Stone Massage -Smooth, round, flat stones in a variety of sizes are placed in water and heated to nearly 140 degrees, then used throughout the massage in order to deliver penetrating warmth and deep relaxation to the entire body from head to toe. Some stones are removed from the warmer, placed on body regions, and left there to penetrate and draw circulation to the area. Others are removed from the warmer, covered in oil while they are nice and hot, and used to massage every muscle on the body with variable amounts of pressure and a DEEPLY relaxing effect that cannot be achieved by the hands alone. Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques can be employed with the stones, delivering a highly therapeutic and, once again, DEEPLY relaxing effect upon the body. We recommend Hot Stone Massage to anyone who loves the sensation of heat and wishes to experience new levels of warmth and relaxation. One hour $95, One and a half-hour $130, Two hour $170 or for My Prana Members: One hour $65, One and a half-hour $90, Two hour $120
Thai Massage - Do you want to achieve greater flexibility, to alleviate the stiffness in your joints, to balance the flow of energy throughout your body, to feel more open, to find your posture improved, your mind more focused? Thai Massage can deliver all of these great benefits to you in your very first session. A gift to humankind from Thailand and the East, it is a totally different approach to massage from the traditional Swedish and Western methods with which most Americans are familiar. The recipient lies on a large mat on the floor wearing loose or flexible clothing in which he or she can be comfortably stretched and manipulated into a sequence of therapeutic and healing positions by the therapist. Trigger points are released, and the major meridians (channels of energy that flow up and down the body - a fundamental component of the science of acupuncture and Eastern medicine) of the body are brought into balance by a series of compressions interspersed throughout the treatment. We wholeheartedly recommend this treatment to any and all, but particularly to those who are seeking to improve their flexibility, those who prefer to keep their clothes on, and those with various medical conditions that might keep them from receiving the traditional Western styles of massage described above. One hour $95, One and a half-hour $130, Two hour $170 or for My Prana Members: One hour $65, One and a half-hour $90, Two hour $120
Foot Reflexology - Foot Reflexology is a powerful therapeutic treatment performed on the feet for the benefit of the entire body. Reflex zones all over the feet corresponding to each and every organ, gland, bone, and body region are massaged with deep pressure using a variety of techniques. This centuries-old therapy has been used with great success to treat all kinds of aches, pains, ailments, conditions, illnesses, and disease by healers all over the world. Much more than a simple foot massage. Half-hour $50, One hour $85 or for My Prana Members: Half-hour $30, One hour $60
Medical/Therapeutic Massage - Medical Massage treatments typically focus the entire session on a specific area of concern and employ a variety of skills including Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Active Release Technique, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, and more to treat any number of injuries, limitations, or dysfunctions in the body's soft tissues. It is often prescribed by doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists to treat conditions like frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and other forms of tendonitis, pulled/strained muscles, sciatica, and so on. Half-hour $50, One hour $95 or for My Prana Members: Half-hour $35, One hour $65
