Monthly Maintenance Program
Make sure you schedule your self-care monthly! This is my most popular service for a reason: it’s an amazing deal. Members get any 90-minute massage once a month for $90 (3 month minimum), for which I can incorporate orthopedic techniques, moving cupping, hot towels, hot stones, essential oils or even lymphatic drainage if desired. No auto-debit or advanced payment required, just the commitment that you will maintain your membership for at least three months. Monthly members for at least 6 months receive a complimentary 60 minute birthday massage in addition to their regular massage on that month. Please let me know just prior to your first massage if you are interested in this program. If you are interested in coming twice a month for a shorter session, let’s discuss details.
90 min Monthly Maintenance $90
A whole body massage characterized by long broad strokes. The pressure can be light, medium or deep, and can vary during the course of the massage depending on the client’s request. Essential oils are incorporated according to the goals of the massage. This massage is popular for relaxation, but is actually very therapeutic, as it calms the nervous system and addresses the body as an integrative system. Systemic relaxation is the first step in healing.
60 min Swedish $80
90 min Swedish $100
This is a more focused, targeted and often active style of massage. Specific areas of tension or pain are evaluated and addressed through neuromuscular techniques, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, moving cupping and active engagement techniques – often without oil. Depending on the client’s goals, only a few areas of the body may be addressed during the massage.
60 min Orthopedic $80
90 min Orthopedic $100
Prenatal or Postpartum Massage
A customized session geared toward easing the strain of carrying a baby. We will work together to identify structural imbalances, relieve the pain and tension they cause and find positions of greater comfort for daily life. I safely address low back pain, leg pain, neck strain, headaches and swelling in the legs and feet. Massage will not only help you feel more like yourself in your body again, but it will decrease the stress often experienced by expectant mothers. Calming the stress response has been shown to stabilize blood pressure, increase oxytocin levels for mom and baby, and decrease the probability of gestational complications. Postpartum massage will address the specific physiological challenges experienced by mothers after the birthing process (and allow mom to take a short break from baby care and receive a little much needed nurturing herself!)
60 min Prenatal $80

Manual Lymphatic Drainage
This treatment involves gentle rhythmic pressure in the direction of lymph flow in order to decrease swelling or simply support the body’s healthy immunological function. Gentle moving cupping can be incorporated as necessary to facilitate fluid flow. Swelling due to sports injuries can normally be relieved in one or two sessions. MLD can be used as surgery support, normally with one full-body session prior to surgery and one or two targeted sessions during the recovery period. In addition to responding to bacteria and viruses, the lymphatic system is responsible for the crucial tasks of delivering proteins to the cardiovascular system for cell nourishment and the absorption of fats, through a one-way fluid transport system. When it is not functioning optimally, the first sign is fluid back up in the form of swelling, or edema. Barring contraindications, MLD can address this. MLD is a powerful tool for swelling, but it is also under-utilized to maintain healthy systems at optimum functioning. For more information, read my blog posts on MLD here and here. Many clients benefit from a series of 6 weekly sessions, and I offer a package of 6 at $75 each. Inquire if this interests you.
60 min MLD $95
90 min MLD $130
Face & Neck Lymphatic Drainage
A 15-minute add-on to any massage, this gentle rhythmic technique utilizes very light pressure in the direction of lymph flow in order to aid in the detoxification of the tissues of the head. It relieves puffiness and swelling and decreases congestion. The neck is where the lymphatic system joins the cardiovascular system, so it is crucial to decongest this area so the entire lymphatic pathways can be clear. This is an excellent way to finish any massage.
Face & Neck Add-on $20
Massage + MLD
A combination of therapeutic massage and lymphatic drainage. We custom design the session together. A common sequence would be a massage on shoulders and neck, followed by MLD on the same areas plus limbs.
90 min Massage + MLD $115
Back, Neck and Shoulders Tune-Up
Relieve a sore back, stiff neck, or achy shoulders in between massages, or when you are just pressed for time. A combination of myofascial, swedish and deep tissue techniques designed to target the most common areas of tension.
45 min Back, Neck and Shoulders $65
