Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.
Thai massage is done on a padded mat on the floor. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. We recommend you wear comfortable clothing for your massage.

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. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. Many beneficial effects include relaxation and feelings of peace, serenity and wellbeing.
Back massage is a short massage, done with clothing.

The intention of the Initiation is to simply raise your vibration to a level that allows your body to resonate with the same frequency of energy as Reiki. Once this is occurs your body is able to remember this frequency for life. The ability to funnel or channel Reiki becomes a life-long function – similar to riding a bike, once you ‘know’, you never ‘un-know’ it.
