An ancient healing practice from 2500 years ago to unblock the energetic sen-lines. It is considered by many to be the best and most therapeutic massage. I am honored to share the gift of Thai massage in Spokane with you. Thai massage includes the rhythmic application of slow and gentle acupressure along the energy pathways of the body. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It is perfect for those who like deeper pressure. It's also called Thai Yoga massage since it is done on a cushioned mat on the floor. I use my hands, knees, legs and feet to apply pressure and move you into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. My clients say Thai massage is like doing yoga without doing any of the work. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. A single Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively at work and home.
60 and 90 minute sessions may be booked online. Please call or text if wanting the 2 hour session as extra time will be needed in the schedule.
Please wear flexible comfortable athletic attire such as yoga pants or sweatpants.
Hot stone massage melts away stress. The weight of heated stones placed at specific points on your body cause the muscles to relax and soften. The hot rocks facilitate deeper relaxation by promoting increased circulation to deeper tissues. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. Oiled, smooth stones are incorporated into the massage as an extension of the therapists hands for an overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork on a heated table. Professional draping will be used. The Simply Swedish combines oils or lotion with a soothing array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this classic type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. Light to medium pressure.
Two hours of ultimate pampering. This unique massage combination consists of the Spa Shimmer table massage with the Indian Head Massage. A lower leg sea salt scrub application will exfoliate and soften the feet during the session. Aromatherapy plus the enhancement of gliding, warm Himalayan Salt Stones while on the table are included. A delight for the senses. You will melt and shimmer. Please CALL or TEXT to book this session to allow for extra time needed in the schedule.
A floor based Barefoot massage that includes full body, broad, gliding techniques applied with the therapists feet. Using the DeepFeet Sarga Silks method to apply tensional force, it's perfect for those who love deep pressure. This service is only for existing healthy, injury free clients.

Brisk Russian and Western strokes are used in my Sports Massage. Anyone interested in improving their recovery from fitness activities can benefit from Sports Massage. It is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics or the weekend warrior. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term.
Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. I may use Deep Tissue work with stretching, hot towels or cupping ( with client consent as cupping may leave a mark known as a cup kiss similar to a bruise) to help you achieve your wellness goals.
Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
