Products & Services

Swedish massage

Swedish massage

During Swedish massage, the therapist will apply massage oil to your skin to facilitate various massage strokes, involving the smooth, gliding strokes called effleurage. Other classic Swedish massage moves include kneading, friction, stretching and (sometimes) tapping.

Swedish massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension and has other health benefits. It can be slow and gentle or vigorous and bracing, depending on what the therapist wants to achieve.

Feel free to state your preference for pressure during Swedish massage. It can range from light to firm. Swedish massage usually includes some deeper work on areas of specific muscle tension. If you want more intensive work and firmer pressure, ask for a deep tissue massage.


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

The name Craniosacral is made up of the two terms cranium and sacrum. Forming the two poles of the Central Nervous System, they (together with the brain- and spinal membranes) make an unity in which the cerebrospinal fluid rhythmically pulsates. The inherent force within the tidal movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, called the Breath of Life in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, initiates various rhythmic impulses within the body that carry an ordering principal for body and mind.

Through the subtle art of touch, the Craniosacral practitioner listens to these subtle rhythms, inviting and encouraging within the customer's system the inherent intelligence and health of the body and its ability to heal and regulate itself. In making a safe space with appropriate and clear boundaries and establishing and strengthening inner resources, the customer's body-mind is able to express, without becoming overwhelmed, places of tightness and patterns of inertia that hold unresolved experiences of stress or trauma, and thus initiating healing and integration. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive, yet deep bodywork that is safe for people of any age, from babies to the elderly, as well as during pregnancy.

A session generally lasts between 75 to 90 minutes. With children it might be shorter. The practitioner works with the client lying on a massage table. However, it is also possible to work with the client in a sitting position or even in movement. This pertains particularly when working with children.


Biomat

Biomat

The BioMat delivers the highest vibrational resonance deep into all tissues of the human body. The combination of far infrared light, negative ions and amethyst quartz opens the channels for intelligent cellular communication leading to DNA repair and total body wellness. The BioMat is present for use during colon hydrotherapy and massage sessions or can be used as a stand-alone treatment.

Negative Ions increase serotonin levels. Once Negative Ions reach the bloodstream they have a good effect on the rate at which serotonin is oxidized in the blood, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. Negative ions are odorless, tasteless and invisible particles that we inhale in abundance near waterfalls, rain forests and oceans. They ssist to alleviate allergies, migraines and sinus problems.

Amethyst boosts the production of hormones. It strengthens the cleansing organs, the circulatory system and blood, the immune system and body metabolism. Amethyst soothes the nervous system and aids in the transmission of neural signals. Memory skills improve with the use of this therapy.

Far Infrared Heat is pure energy in the form of LIGHT from the invisible area of the electromagnetic spectrum. Far Infrared Heat is the most beneficial light wave, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to detoxify the body of harmful toxins and acid wastes.

Missy Whaley gave the best massages ever! Missy’s background with dance/choreography/yoga practice all make her massage more empathetic and creative. I consider her massage an artistic gift. She’s also fabulously intuitive for prenatal massage too.
