Massage & Spa Services


This session is a fusion of massage techniques customized for you at the time of your treatment. These techniques may include deep tissue work, breathwork, acupressure, and/or energy work. You and your therapist can co-create your session so that your body may receive the work it needs.

Chinese Fire Cupping

This traditional Chinese therapy is used to eliminate stagnation by bringing fresh blood to the area being cupped. This session is combined with massage techniques that will allow for more freedom of movement and a feeling of openness. This treatment can be an effective alternative to deep tissue therapy.

Heated Stone Therapy

This deeply relaxing and grounding treatment flawlessly incorporates heated stones into our Alchemy massage. The stones’ solidity, smoothness and deep heat work to encourage the release of physical and emotional tension.

Light Foot Treatment

A pampering and therapeutic treatment for the feet that begins with a brisk dry brushing, an exfoliating salt polish and hydrating paraffin treatment. Your soft and glowing tootsies will then melt into a 30-minute massage session.

Maternity Massage

Receiving massage during pregnancy increases immunity, decreases fatigue and swelling, uplifts your mood and relaxes your body and baby. You will receive your massage while lying in the “Prego Pillow”, where you can safely lye face up and down during your massage.

Myofacial Release

This work is designed to access the connective tissue to release toxins, and chronic tension. It allows for the slow release of a muscle so that the body may unwind gently, though completely, without force.


Reiki is a hands on healing technique that utilizes a flow of spiritually guided life-force energy. Reiki works with the client’s own energy to allow both subtle and deep healing to occur. This session is extremely relaxing and can be done with the client fully clothed.



Our gentle, yet deeply renewing facial treatment moves and freshens the blood and lymph in the face and neck, thoroughly cleanses the pores, exfoliates dead skin and rehydrates your newly unveiled cells. Your products will be chosen according to your skins condition at the time of your session.


Feel confident in that backless dress or swimsuit after experiencing our rejuvenating back facial. It includes everything in our “Fresh” facial session, only performed on the back.

Clear your Head

Ear Candling

A technique used throughout history to loosen blockages in the superficial inner ear. The herbal smoke is said to clear nerve endings, and enhance the senses. This treatment is deeply nurturing and relaxing and can be done fully clothed.

Accupressure Head Massage

This point massage to the head and face relaxes and moves stagnant and over stimulated energy in the skull and facial meridian lines. This session will leave you feeling lighter, brighter, and ready for your next experience. The client may remain fully clothed for this treatment.

Body Treatments

*All of our body treatments include a dry skin brushing (or gharsana, pronounced gar-sana)

The Essential Wrap

This lavishly aromatic treatment begins with our dry skin brushing to remove dead cells. Your customized essential oil blend is then applied from neck to toes. You are comfortably swaddled and kept warm while your therapist performs our Acupressure head massage or Reiki. These precious, organic oils are absorbed into the skin and then into the blood. You’ll arise with your skin glowing and toned and your spirit nurtured.

The Salt of the Earth

Our secret recipe of organic essential oils and exotic salt will bring your skin and energy field back to life. After being gently buffed with this synergistic blend, a therapeutic cellulite minimizing oil will be applied with concentration to the thighs and buttocks.

Urban Eagle Herbal Wrap

This beautiful and unique treatment is effective relief for a sluggish system. 100% cotton linen wraps are lovingly steeped in an herbal tea blend specifically designed for lymph drainage. The client is then wrapped and receives a Reiki session or our Acupressure Head Massage. This session is a great beginning to a lifestyle change or an internal cleanse.
