The Art, Science, and Skill
of Massage


This centuries old skill relaxes the mind, body and spirit. Massage offers something for everyone; it can alleviate pain, soothe tight muscles, stimulate the immune system, and support the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Stress can be a thing of the past with regular massages.

What Type of Massage is Perfect for You?
When it comes to massage there are quite a few modalities available. Depending on your needs, our therapists tend to incorporate a blend of several techniques during your massage appointment. At Skin 'n Tonic, we divide our massage services into two main categories: Western and Eastern. Here is a description of each category:

Western Massage
Western massage is a relaxing traditional massage that is known as a classic relaxation massage. Classic movements like effleurage (long, sweeping movements), kneading and friction help to ease tension while soothing the body and mind. We always recommend a Classic Massage for first time clients.
Modalities within this category are: Classic, Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Lymphatic Drainage, Pregnancy, and Neuromuscular/Sports.

Eastern Massage
Massage techniques within this category tend to have ancient roots. The goal is to alleviate energy blockages and restore the proper flow of "Qi" of the body. Most techniques are hands-on via a variety a pressure point movements as well as intense stretching techniques. A modality like Reiki, which is much more spiritual, utilizes techniques that work with the energy fields that surround your body.
Modalities within this category are: Reflexology, Thai Yoga, Acupressure and Reiki.

Packages of 5 to 10 sessions are available - ask our receptionist for details.

  Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress and to have a full body experience without taking off your clothes by only exposing your feet and lower legs. The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person's health. Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that refelexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer. Reflexology is generally considered safe, although very vigorous pressure may cause discomfort for some people for a short while during the session, but this quickly subsides and the treatment is thoughly enjoyable.
