My Spa 2 helps guests unwind and slough off stress with a panoply of spa services. Folks start by choosing one of three basic styles—Swedish gently relaxes, deep tissue helpes release pent-up tension. From there, they can throw in several modalities to spice up basic sessions, including myofascial release, which relaxes the fine connective tissue between muscles, and sports massage, which helps athletes overcome injuries sustained tumbling to the massage. The spa also offers microdermabrasion and facial treatments, leaving customers’ skin feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.

Deep Tissue

A phrase which indicates client-directed area-specific massage, as opposed to relaxation massage. Little or no oils are used to promote access to the deeper muscular and fascial structures, below the surface.
Rate: 50 minutes / $90 OR 80 minutes / $125

Swedish Massage

Manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia. Most often performed with oil. Techniques include stroking, vibrations, shaking, effleurage (light long strokes), petrissage (circular manipulation), tapotement (percussive techniqes) and rocking.
Rate: 50 minutes / $90 OR 80 minutes / $125

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
Rate: 60 minutes / $75

Massage Modalities

Different modalities can be incorporated into a treatment when needed.

Myofascial Release

Stretching of the fascia. The therapist is trained to distinguish how much force to use, the direction of the stretch and how long to stretch, via the feedback given by the patient’s body.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Assessment and treatment of Postural Distortions, Biomechanical Dysfunction, and the Soft Tissue causes of these conditions.

Spa Therapies

A variety of body treatments administered in spas. Herbal wraps, loofah body scrubs, parafango, salt scrubs, seaweed body wraps, hydrotherapy treatments, etc.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. There are three contexts in which sports massage can be useful to an athlete: pre-event, post-event, and injury treatment.

Trigger Points

Hyper-irritable areas occurring as small knots in the muscles throughout the body. They can also be felt as painful lumps of hardened fascia/connective tissue, and are painful when pressed. They can transfer pain and tenderness (known as “referral patterns”) into the joints and muscles. In some cases, the referred pain (from an active trigger point) can mimic other ailments, like heart attacks or tendonitis.
