Classes are limited to 6 people so sign up early in order to secure your spot.

New Services Available
75 Minute Massage and Mini Session for Stress and Tension Relief
I often hear 60 minutes is not enough time or 90 minutes is too long so, I decided to add a 75 minute option for massage. Don't have enough time for a full session? Schedule a quick 30 minute break to help relieve tension and stress. A mini 30 minute session focused on head, neck, face, shoulders and hands will leave you feeling rejuvenated when you are too busy for a full session.
