Massage is one of the oldest forms of healing based upon the simple power of human touch. It helps ease tension, stiffness, and pain. Massage can help to alleviate anxiety, improve sleep quality, and may reduce high blood pressure in some. Regular massage can even help improve your golf game (Welcome to Phoenix)!
When people think “massage”, they are most often thinking about the Swedish modality. Swedish is the classic massage that features long, flowing strokes, gentle kneading, and other movements to relax and relieve muscle tension, tension you may not even be aware of! This relaxation helps improve your overall circulation, as well as your flexibility, mobility, and range of motion.

Hot Stone Massage is a special treat that combines Swedish techniques with the warmth of hot stones placed to melt away stress and tension. First, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the hot stone cools off, your therapist will replace it with another. Your therapist uses a selection of stones with varying shapes and sizes — big stones are placed on larger muscles, smaller ones on place on the smaller muscles. Your therapist might also place heated stones at specific points on your spine to help improve the relaxation and the flow of energy in your body.
A deep tissue massage helps release muscle tension and knots using slow strokes, direct pressure, or friction directed across the grain of the muscles with the fingers, thumbs or elbows. During a deep tissue massage, the therapist will apply more pressure that goes to deeper muscle layers than in a Swedish massage. Deep tissue massage is good for treating conditions as sore shoulders, lower back pain, and headaches.
Sports massage is a REQUIREMENT in a balanced training regime. It can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Athletes know that the specially formulated sports massage helps promote their flexibility, improves their endurance, helps prevent injuries, and helps prepare them to perform at their absolute best. Our licensed therapists will assist you with gentle stretching during your massage as well to help you regain range of motion. If you are competing in a Phoenix area event, such as a golf tournament, it can help you sink that birdie!

Pregnancy, or prenatal massage, helps relax and reduce pregnancy aches and pains. It focuses on the special needs of the expectant mother and her unborn baby as she goes through the miraculous, but often stressful changes associated with childbearing. Prenatal massage can help relieve muscle cramps, swelling, and stress while providing comfort to the mother-to-be. During the pregnancy massage, pillows and cushions help place you in a relaxing side-lying position that ensures proper spinal alignment and support. During a pregnancy massage, your therapist will apply light Swedish massage strokes to soothe your sore body. This will help alleviate aching in stress bearing joints, such as the lower back and ankles. You will leave feeling relaxed, restored, and rejuvenated!
