Massage Services


MASSAGE THERAPY is one of the most effective ways to combat stress and enhance wellness.  Our massage therapists will work with you to customize your experience and cater to your individual needs.  Effective massage therapy techniques such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Hot Stone, Aromatherapy and Reflexology are available to students, members and non-members. 

how to get the most from your massage

  • We recommend using the steam shower or sauna 5-10 minutes prior to your massage. Massage works best on warm, relaxed muscles.
  • For your comfort, please shower prior to arriving for your massage. A warm shower washes off any salts, minerals or chemicals that could clog pores when mixed with massage oils.
  • Communication with your therapist is essential. By letting your therapist know of any areas to concentrate on or avoid, they can cater the appointment to your individual needs. If you should experience any discomfort at any time during the session, please let your therapist know.
  • Aromatherapy is available with all massages. The high-quality oils used contain the purest distilled parts of flowers, herbs and fruits. Discuss with your therapist which oil might be best for you.
