Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy healing which promotes a state of relaxation and wellness. Reiki is a form of holistic therapy that uses simple hands on and visualization techniques to improve the flow of life energy in a person. (Reiki sessions are done fully clothed).

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is done with a specialized prenatal side-lying memory foam system designed to promote safe and comfortable positioning for mom and baby. Katie specifically tailors each session to accommodate a mother's individual needs through all stages of pregnancy.  Prenatal massage has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, reduce musculoskeletal pain, support mothers through the various physical and emotional changes and transitions of pregnancy, increase oxytocin production, reduce maternal blood pressure, heart, and respiratory rate, increase uterine blood supply to enhance fetal health, and promote relaxation and well-being for mothers through nurturing touch. 

Swedish Massage

Classic Swedish massage is a full body massage designed to improve circulation, lymph drainage, and filter out toxins in the body, while reducing muscle tension and promoting relaxation. Classic Swedish Massage consists of long gliding strokes, kneading movements, friction, and tapotement.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a full body massage with many of the same techniques and benefits as classic Swedish massage. Deep Tissue massage involves more intense pressure and a focus on working into deeper layers of the muscle and fascia (connective tissue) designed to relieve pain and chronic muscle tension.
