Massage Therapy

As healing practitioners, we genuinely care about and take pleasure in working with our guests to help them to feel good in their bodies. A balance of technique and intuition are at the heart of each massage.  Our therapists, work with each person in a highly focused and customized way to achieve results. After a session, guests often tell me that they feel pain-free, letting us know that we have been effective in treating each person we touch. Our team specializes in pain management and employ the various modalities of bodywork that we have learned in years of professional experience. That said, we are also mindful of people's need to de-stress and therefore enjoy giving a truly relaxing experience through bodywork therapy to facilitate deep states of calm and peacefulness.

Signature Creative Wellness Massage

Our Signature Massage is our most popular option and the perfect choice if you're unsure of which type of massage therapy is best for you.  It is a custom, tailored experience designed with your needs and goals in mind.  Our therapists use a variety of styles to provide a restorative and relaxing massage. The Signature Massage also includes your choice of one of our signature scent options.  

Cranial Sacral Massage

Cranial Sacral Therapy is an osteopathic manipulative therapy that uses a gentle touch around the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine). This treatment has an effect on the entire craniosacral system including the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that protect the brain and spinal cord.  


Cranial Sacral Therapy has been shown to help those that suffer from a wide range of conditions including migraine headaches, neck pain, stiffness, back pain, existing injuries, sinus infections, TMJ syndrome and more.   This non-invasive holistic practice helps to release compression and relax the client, reducing pain and stress.  


The ultimate goal of Cranial Sacral Therapy is to non-invasively, help the body to heal, self-regulate and improve the functioning of the central nervous system. The client can stay clothed during the session as this is purely a hands-on treatment and no oils are used.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a distinct type of therapy which utilizes smooth and flat basalt stones that are comfortably heated and then placed on the body as well as used to massage specific areas of the body. The use of warm stones is deeply relaxing and warming, providing great relief to sore and tight muscles.
