CBD Infused Oil & Lotion Add-On
Incorporate the healing elements of Cannabis to your session. This age old infamous plant can add an anti-inflammatory and anti-aging element to your session. It’s non-psychoactive and safe for a wide range of therapeutic application. Between 15-20 mg of CBD will be utilized for each session.
Ear Acupressure with Ear Seeds
Cupping therapy is an alternative therapy (originated in early Chinese Medicine) using glass cups to create suction to move stagnation in the body. With the ability to pull out heat, toxins, and increase blood and lymph flow, this type of “inverse massage” provides another level of relaxation and pain relief. Can be a stand alone treatment or included in a Deep Tissue/Sports Massage session.
Thai Yoga Bodywork
Performed on a mat or table while the recipient is comfortably clothed and on a soft organic material mat. Also referred to as “Lazy Man’s Yoga” or “Thai Massage,” Thai Yoga Bodywork improves mobility, range of motion, and clears stagnation in the natural energy pathways of the body. During a session, a recipient fully relaxes while the practitioner stimulates acupressure points and encourages deep breathing during passive positioning and placement of yoga postures. Highly recommended for athletes and individuals seeking to improve and deepen their yoga or stretching practice.
Please dress in comfortable clothing similar to sweatpants or yoga wear.
