A step beyond - Specialty Ayurveda massage services
In addition to traditional bodywork therapies, our specialized Ayurveda therapies come from thousands of years of Ayurvedic medicine, where practitioners asses the energetic, elemental energies of the individual and prescribe specific treatments that promote balance and well-being. Your therapist will asses your Dosha type in an intake interview and make recommendations for regimens that can help support your better health. These sessions are often recommended to be repeated 3-5 times for best results. You may also decide to try each treatment if you are curious! Feel free to call to talk to one of our therapists if you have any questions or want more information.

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated, basalt stones, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release. During the massage, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another. The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.

Marma points (Marmani) are vital energy points on the body that are important junctures to the energy pathways for healing. Similar to acupuncture or shiatsu, the system and knowledge of Marma Chikitsa has been used as an assessment tool, as well as a therapeutic modality for healing body, mind and consciousness for thousands of years. Marmani are classified according to their location on the body, the tissue of which they are composed, and the effects felt if injured. Ayurvedic massage therapy is based upon the knowledge of these sensitive, vital anatomical points, where structures pulsate and pain can exist. They are reflex anatomical sites, where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet and connect by subtle channels similar to meridians that carry energy and impulses that vitalize us.
