Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.
An energy healing session is usually performed on a client who is fully clothed, lying comfortably on a massage table. You will want to wear loose fitting or comfortable clothing. The healing work may be done with a light gentle hands-on approach or the practitioner’s hands may be a few inches above your body with no actual contact. Most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. The mind may feel calm and your physical body may become relaxed. Sometimes clients fall asleep during the session, but not to worry, you will still receive all of the benefits of the session, sleeping or awake.
Massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance wellness. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body. Massage has been practiced in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history, and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain.
If this is your first massage you will fill out a confidential health history and customer profile that will allow the therapist to provide you with a customized service and discuss results you are seeking.The key to achieving your goals during a session is communication. Let your Therapist know if you are in need of general relaxation, stress reduction, pain management/relief or therapy in specific areas that need attention. Please ask your therapist to stop if there is something that you don’t like — they will be more than happy to adjust technique, pressure or general relaxation if something is uncomfortable for you.

Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.
After checking in, you will be guided to our private sauna room. Before or after your sauna session, enjoy complimentary herbal teas in our Relaxation Area. We recommend wearing comfortable, loose fitting clothes, and arriving a few minutes before your session.
Inside the infrared sauna room, you will find plush towels for your use. After your session, allow for a few minutes to get changed, drink some water, and cool off.
Guests can utilize apps to listen to calming or energizing music with Spotify or Pandora or meditate with Headspace by syncing your phone to the sauna’s bluetooth speakers.
You’ll sweat deeply, enjoy a moment of quiet and relaxation, and leave feeling refreshed and energized! To fully experience the infrared sauna benefits, we recommend coming for sessions at least two times a week. Immediately after a sauna session you will feel refreshed and see a glow in your skin, similar to after a great workout. It will take a handful of sessions before the body acclimates and begins to deeply detox and see all the benefits related to infrared light therapy

Foot detoxes rid the body of any harmful toxins. Potential toxins can range from impurities in the air, to chemicals in your home and beauty products.
An ionic foot detox works by pulling the toxins out of your body through your feet. It is a safe and relaxing way to clear out the body. The ionizing machine works to ionize the foot bath water which gives the hydrogen in the water a positive charge. The positive charge attracts the negatively charged toxins in your body. The ions in the foot bath water hold a charge that enables them bind to any heavy metals and toxins in your body, similar to how a magnet works. This allows the toxins to be pulled out through the bottoms of your feet.
Your feet are placed in the warm, ionized water in the foot bath tub. An infrared belt is placed on your mid-section to gently warm the organs to stimulate blood flow, allowing for the release of toxins. You can relax quietly for 30 minutes while you body effortlessly detoxifies.
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. Devices that utilize PEMF technology emit electromagnetic waves at different wavelengths in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process. PEMF technology can benefit your body when other electromagnetic fields – like those produced by microwaves and x-ray machines – are harmful. Frequency and duration make all the difference. The waves created by PEMF devices occur in brief bursts and are very low-frequency, like the electromagnetic waves found in nature. In fact, most waves involved in PEMF treatments have a lower frequency than you would be exposed to during a thunderstorm.
Your whole body, including skin, bones, and organs, is composed of cells. The membranes of healthy cells have positive and negative magnetic charges. These charges are required to exchange ions carrying chemical elements your body needs to function, like calcium and potassium. Over time your cells deteriorate or get injured, and when that happens they lose their magnetic charges – and with them, the ability to exchange ions. Symptoms like inflammation, fatigue, and pain are caused by damaged cells with low charges. PEMF technology targets the affected area and restores cells’ healthy electromagnetic charges.
During a PEMF session, you’ll lay, (fully clothed), comfortably on a massage table on top of the PEMF mat. Headphones playing meditative music are utilized to help your body get maximum relaxation to aid in the body’s healing. A soothing eye pillow will be placed on you to help you go deeper into a meditative state. A weighted blanket is available for those who want to feel it’s anti anxiety and stress-relieving benefits. The session lasts 30 min.
Estheticians, also called skin care therapists, specialize in treatments and enhancement of the appearance of your skin.
Each facial begins with a consultation that helps the esthetician determine the right products for your skin type and concerns. Once that has been determined, the relaxing part begins! Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps: cleansing, exfoliation, light massage and mask. Estheticians also perform waxing and body treatments.
Our in-house esthetician is Kat Andino.
