Our therapeutic massage is tailored to each individual’s needs and is designed to promote overall relaxation. You can discuss any specific injuries or areas of tension before the session and our therapist will focus special attention and techniques to these areas. This treatment is ideal for reducing specific muscular aches and pains, and overall stress and anxiety. It is a perfect way to help you achieve optimal relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage for Upper Body
Designed to work the deep connective tissue and release tight muscular tension in your chest, shoulders, upper arms, thoracic area, chest and back. Its aim is to help open up the chest cavity area and the supporting back muscles. Our therapist will also pay special attention to the area under the scapula, to free the shoulders and let the arms move with more ease and sense of spaciousness.
Deep Tissue Massage for Lower Body
This deep tissue treatment is specifically created for the lower back, hips and upper legs. It works the muscles of the hip and thighs, including the outward rotators, hamstrings, adductors and trunk flexors, to help you find a sense of openness in the lower body and supporting spine. This massage will also help to lengthen the hamstrings and address lower back issues that arise from extended periods of sitting.
This healing massage leads to complete relaxation. You can select from pure, natural aromatherapy oils, such as lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, bergamot, orange or lemongrass. Combined with expert therapeutic techniques, this experience will help to awaken your senses and harmonize your body and mind.
“Sabai” means “comfort” or “relax” in Thai. Using pressure points along the spine and back, our therapist will help to relieve tension in your muscles, rebalance your nervous system and improve your circulation. Our specialized treatments use a blend of pure essential oils, and give special attention to the needs of your upper body, typical high areas of tension, especially your back, neck and shoulders. A gentle head and neck massage at the end of the treatment will leave you feeling light and clear.
Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai Massage combines thumb, elbow and palm pressure along the meridian lines, to release tension throughout the whole body. This technique has been perfected over generations of practitioners. It uses full body stretching to stimulate energy flow by increasing blood circulation, lowering blood pressure and releasing tension from specific areas. It is ideal for muscle relaxation, increasing flexibility and mobility.
Foot Reflexology Massage
Deeply relaxing and balancing to your entire system, Reflexology is an ancient method of healing based on the theory that every organ, muscle and gland of your body is reflected in ‘reflex points’ of your feet. During the treatment, these specific areas are massaged to help clear the energy channels of the body, improving circulation and relieving tension. Special techniques are also employed to apply pressure directly on the reflex points, encouraging elimination of blockages in the related areas.
Herbal Facial Treatment
This reviving natural, herbal treatment will leave your skin feeling refreshed, energized and glowing. We use our homemade scrub to cleanse and treat your face, filled with natural extracts of Vitamin C, followed by our herbal face mask, made from yogurt and oats, and completed with a cucumber mask to rejuvenate your skin to a youthful, radiant state.
Our relaxing Galvanic Facial Massage uses a low-level electric current to facilitate the transport of key ingredients to your skin, for improved cleansing, hydration and circulation. The pre-treatment facial gel contains TEA Cocoyl Glutamate, which is rich in extracts of marigold, sea kelp and vanilla, to purify and soothe your skin. Its application uses a treatment gel which contains Magnesium to promote cellular energy, arginine to facilitate recovery from stress, aspartate to balance your skin’s pH, and pure Vitamin E to help moisturize your skin.
Detoxifying Body Scrub and Wrap
A full body scrub and wrap to help purify the surface layer of skin cells. This detoxifying treatment begins with our special coffee and sesame scrub, to deeply exfoliate dead skin cells, detox the body, firm and tone your skin. To follow, a nourishing hand-blended mixture of coconut milk, coconut oil and honey is applied in a body wrap, leaving your skin glowing and rejuvenated. A decadent experience for your skin.
Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage
Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working the energy of the internal organs”. This treatment clears blockages and tension in the abdomen and guides healing energy through the entire body by massaging a series of points in the navel area with deep, gentle touches. This detoxifying massage is excellent for digestive issues or constipation problems, back pain and stress.
