Ashi/Ashiatsu Massage is an Asian barefoot massage. Ashi means foot, and atsu means pressure. Oils and lotion are applied to the body, and soft, clean, bare feet give a rhythmic and deep Swedish massage. Parallel bars are overhead, used for the therapist’s balance and control.

LaStone Therapy is the original Hot Basalt Lava Stone & Cold Marble Stone Massage. Stones are placed on the body and under the body while receiving massage with the warm stones. La Stone is very detoxing as one stroke with a stone is equivalent to 5-10 massage strokes with the hand. While feeling deep relaxation from a La Stone session, most clients have a boost of energy 2-3 days after a session.
ACE Massage Cupping
A wonderful ancient tool has found its place in the contemporary world of health care. ACE Massage Cupping™ is a modern form of vacuum therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience its subtle power.
By creating suction and vacuum pressure, ACE Massage Cupping™ is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is incredibly versatile and the basic movements can easily be customized to accomplish a wide variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This complements many health modalities ranging from spa treatments and medical massage to chiropractic, physical and occupational therapies.
