Shiatsu is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and is performed fully clothed wearing loose comfortable clothing on a mat on the floor. Shiatsu uses finger pressure, palm pressure, facilitated stretching and range of motion along the meridian lines of the body. Chi (Ki) can become stagnant, blocked, depleted or in over abundance causing disharmony ( dis-ease ) in the body. Shiatsu is a practice that facilitates the movement of Chi allowing the body, mind and spirit to come to a state of balance and harmony.
Acupressure points that are used are the same as that are used in acupuncture treatments, only in Shiatsu the entire meridian is addressed using gentile pressure.

Often referred to as “yoga massage,” Thai Massage (Nuad Boran) is an ancient healing system from Thailand that combines passive yoga movements, stretches, massage, and acupressure, which are applied to energy lines on the body (called ‘sen’ in Thai medicine). The underlying intention of Thai massage is to access energy lines in the body, which in turn allows the body to be more balanced, flexible, and open. Thai massage is given on a mat on the floor, with the client dressed in loose, comfortable clothing.
Our Thai Massage Practitioner Amy Warcup has had extensive training and earned certifications in Thailand. The art of Thai massage is a very relaxing yet powerful body work session that restores the body, mind and spirit.
Thai Foot Massage:
Thai Foot Massage is a method of foot reflexology that utilizes reflexology techniques that derive from China and India, and has developed into a specialized style of footwork in Thailand. This technique includes a rose petal foot soak, followed by a deeply relaxing and rigorous foot massage, pressure point work, percussion (tapotement) techniques, and massage to the calves and lower legs. Benefits include alleviating tension in specific areas of the body, deep relaxation, relief of soreness and tension in the feet, and assists with relieving insomnia and promoting restful sleep.
