Our Clients

"I walked out of here feeling like Gumby, my friends - no small feat considering all the tension I'd built up in my back over a spring time of stress at work. Upon arriving, I filled out a quick waiver and intake form, noting what kind of massage I'd like (athletic! with PRESSURE.) and pinpointing on a diagram my most-needy body parts."

"I live close by, but would definitely commute to get here- it's so worth it. Whether to recover from a sore back, or to de-stress or pamper- GO! You won't regret it."

"I cant't say enough good things about the massages and the treatment I have gotten here...The atmosphere is soothing and calming as soon as you walk in the door, the staff are friendly and helpful, incredibly knowledgeable and great listeners"

New Massage Therapy Available

 Zero Balancing  is a modality that uses gentle, skilled touch to locate and address areas of the body where energy and structure have become imbalanced. These imbalances can cause physical, mental and emotional tensions and/or weaknesses, resulting in stress, discomfort, pain, depression; and to a small or larger degree, physical and emotional immobility. By bringing the body into balance - a state in which energy is able to move freely throughout the whole person - a feeling of increased awareness and well-being can be experienced, which allows health and life possibilities to exist on a broader scale.

Zero Balancing (ZB) has a standard protocol which it uses as a body-map for the practitioner and allows for a stand alone treatment but it can also be integrated into a session with massage or other bodywork modalities. 

If interested in booking a ZB appointment ask for Joseph or for more information regarding ZB please speak with Joseph or visit
