Therapeutic Relaxation, Hot Stones, and Body Wraps

Melissa provides soothing and calming sessions focusing on relaxation and recovery blending with deep tissue techniques adjusted to each clients needs. Hot stones can be added during back work or as a full body stone session. Her nourishing body wrap can be done as stand alone sessions or blended with a full body massage.

About Hot Stone Massage

During these sessions Melissa incorporates heated basalt stones with her massage techniques. The heat provided by damp hot stones penetrates more deeply into the muscle tissue than manual pressure ever can. This slow heat creates deep relaxation and release of muscle tension allowing the client a gentle way to relax while changing tension and letting the therapist working into the deeper muscles layers to make greater change.

About Nourishing Body Wraps

We start by exfoliating and opening the skin with dry brushing followed by application of our own hand-made nourishing skin butter and wrapping the body in layers of blankets. While wrapped we massage your neck and feet. A 90 minute or 2 hour body warp will incorporate back, arms and legs to provide a full body massage. We finish with time to relax into your wrap and release muscle tension from the inside out.

How wraps work

Dry body brushing dusts off old skin cells, opens pores, stimulates blood and lymph flow, and warms the skin.  Wrapping the body with hydrating oils and raising the body temperature allows the oil to moisturize deeply into the newly opened skin and helps to boost the lymph and immune systems while increasing circulation to create new cell growth. Body wraps have been shown to increase the metabolism assisting in break down cellulite and other body fats as well as reduce the signs of aging. They can assist to rid the body of excess fluid and toxins leading to detoxification.
