Trigger point / Myofascial Massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment.

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key essential points on the body. Our professional massage therapists enjoy our “fire room” to incorporate a customized massage with the use of hot stones which offers enhanced benefits.

60 minutes $99     90 minutes $130

Fire Cupping: Cupping therapy begins with a therapist warming up your tissue with some light massage, then the cups are administered and left to suction on your problem areas (back, shoulders, legs, knees for example.) After 10-15 minutes, the “Moving Cups’ or “Dancing Cups” begin where the cups are slowly moved around your muscles to spread the relief and help work out stubborn knots and aid in the release of toxins. The session ends with some massage strokes using cooling Arnica Gel mixed with Peppermint oil to help cool off the area. It is normal to have visible circles. They vary in color from light pink to reddish/purple depending upon how tight the suctioning is and how much you have released. They are not burns, nor do they hurt, and will fade in 2-3 days depending upon their darkness. It is important to know that although fire is used to create the suction and seal of the glass onto to your back, you will not feel the fire, and most clients report that the cups actually feel cold.

Raindrop Massage Technique involves the amazing power of nine essential oils, mixed with a variety of massage techniques including back massage, vita flex massage and heat application. We have designed a “water room” with all of this in mind. The technique administered by our certified raindrop massage specialists is designed to bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. Many types of spinal problems and misalignments are caused by toxins that lie dormant within the spine. The use of essential oils helps to dispose of this toxicity within the spine, helping its structure return to normal. Our certified rain drop specialists will leave you in a state of pure bliss.

60 minutes $109     90 minutes $149

At Active Living, our certified prenatal massage therapists take extra care to ensure our prenatal clients are comfortable.

Massage Etiquette

Please silence your cell phone. You can't relax if you're answering calls, checking emails, and texting.

During the massage, feel free to communicate with your therapist on anything you would like to be different -- more or less pressure, quieter music, a blanket if you're cold, turning the table warmer off. Your comfort is the most important thing, and your therapist is there for you. Massage is usually done without clothing, but you are covered with a sheet at all times. Only the part of the body being massaged is exposed. You can keep undergarments on, but it might limit the therapist's access to muscles that could use some work.

Plan to arrive a few minutes early. Nothing is worse than rushing to get back to the massage room and change clothes quickly.

Sessions will begin at scheduled times.    We reserve the right to charge for any appointment cancelled or broken without 24 hours advanced notice.

Gratuities are at the clients discretion but typically represent 15-20% before any discounts are applied.
