Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the topical application or inhalation of essential oils for therapeutic effect. Scent molecules stimulate olfactory nerves in the brain to alert the amygdala, the part of the brain that processes decision-making, memory, and emotions. Few individuals are allergic to pure essential oils (containing no man-made chemicals), but inform your therapist if you think you are allergic to any particular scents.

Sound Therapy

Sound therapy can involve use of music, singing bowls, tuning forks, or other types of sounding during your massage. On the scientific level, everything is made of wave energy and vibrating electrons. Sound therapy intends to restore imbalances in the energy network to improve health and wellbeing. Most people find sound therapy very relaxing.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient practice using negative pressure to draw out and stretch the skin, fascia, and muscles. Glass cups are heated inside to create a vacuum and then applied to the skin. They can be left in place for 3 minutes or moved along the skin. Cupping encourages the circulation, and sometimes round bruises may appear afterwards. These bruises are normal and will fade on their own after a few days. Cupping is generally safe but those on anticoagulants may want to avoid it. It is a great way to loosen tight areas, especially around the shoulders and back.

Hot Stones

Hot Stones technique is the use of heated, smooth stones to apply massage to the body. This and other types of massage can soothe sore muscles, relieve tension, reduce stress, and aid in sleep. Inform your therapist if you have any nerves damage or alterations in sensation before opting for hot stones in your massage.

On-Site / Chair / Events

Chair or table massage can be ordered for a work or family event. Please contact us for pricing and details.

Prenatal

Prenatal massage was Elena’s first specialization. She has been part of many pregnant women’s journey to motherhood, including attending and massaging at their births. Elena’s table can comfortably accommodate and properly support a fully pregnant belly and nursing breasts, so that areas like the low back can be better accessed. Women experiencing pregnancy complications should consult their providers to ensure massage is safe for them.
