Stress Relief Massage: This type of massage is aimed at relieving tension in the body to facilitate the relief of tension in the mind. Primarily fascial and swedish massage techniques are used with gentle to moderate depth and degree and a slow, broad contact.

Allow the beautiful scent and the powerful natural chemicals to restore, invigorate or ease your mind and body.
