An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment). Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.

What is a Chair Massage?
A chair massage focuses on the high tension areas of the neck, back, shoulders, arms, and hands. Chair massage is performed on an ergonomically designed portable massage chair. You sit on the chair facing forward, with your head in a face rest.
Do I remove my clothes?
No. During a chair massage you remain fully clothed.
Will they use oils?
No oils are used in a chair massage. Sometimes a light and absorbent lotion is applied during hand massage but you can let the therapist know if you prefer no lotion.
What about cleanliness?
The massage therapists clean and disinfect the chair, face rest and hands between each massage. Each client also receives a new face rest cover to ensure cleanliness.
What if I want more pressure?
Just Ask! Our massage therapists are trained to adapt each massage to the needs of each client. The therapist will check in with you during your massage so feel free to let them know your preference.
