In native traditions, the sweat lodge is a place of cleansing and healing for tribal members. When the effects of the sweat lodge are combined with body work, it produces a profound response. Your journey (pronounced twa-ba-ha-ji-dah) begins in our hydrotherapy tub as you are massaged in warm water from head to toe. Then, in a steam-filled room, your already-warm, relaxed body is massaged again. This treatment is tailored to your needs and may incorporate massage techniques using the therapist’s hands and feet, deep stretching, and hot and cold towels. Swimsuit required.

Float comfortably in a pool of warm water while a therapist uses massage techniques to soften muscles, stretch tissues and open energy pathways. As your body dances and sways through the water, it reaches a state of relaxation so deep that the mind can follow. From this space, a freedom of awareness encourages and allows healing to occur. Watsu® is exceptionally effective in addressing stress, chronic back pain, orthopedic limitations, arthritis, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, range of motion issues and therapies involving emotional release. This is a profound, holistic body experience unlike any other. Swimsuit required.
NMT is excellent for the reduction of chronic complaints such as sciatica, headaches, shoulder pain and other painful conditions that aren’t responding to traditional therapy. NMT is precise soft-tissue therapy with the purpose of releasing hyper-contraction and spasms in the soft tissue, eliminating trigger points that cause pain and restoring postural alignment and flexibility. Each service includes a measurement of the skeletal frame and an assessment of postural patterns with specific manual therapy to the problem areas. You will be provided with information to help you continue the process of positive change at home. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
This treatment is recommended for those who regularly receive massage and who enjoy intense body work. Specialized, focused techniques reach deep muscle layers, and address points of attachment as well as the belly of the muscles. These techniques tend to be slow and coordinated with deep breathing.
Combining a specially designed vibrational instrument with craniosacral and myofascial release techniques, this treatment encourages the connective tissue that encloses and attaches muscles to relax and release harmful patterns, allowing the whole musculoskeletal system to return to a more comfortable, balanced state. As the body accumulates stress, sustains injury or suffers trauma from birth to the present moment, connective tissue adapts to compensate for often-dysfunctional movement and posture habits. This compensation pulls the body out of alignment and can lead to pain and restricted motion. Connective Tissue Rebalancing eases these problems without discomfort. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. For a specialized treatment for hips, legs and feet, see Spring in your Step
