Couples Massage in Session

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses a series of elongated, continuous strokes, along with kneading and cupping motions. This type of massage is meant to relax and soothe. The pressure is moderate or medium in terms of how deep your therapist will work the muscles. Clients who prefer a medium to light touch in massage, generally schedule a Swedish massage.

Monday through Friday, $90 | $105 | $130

Saturday and Sunday, $100 | $115 | $140

 

Deep Tissue, Sports, and Maternity

Offshoots of Swedish massage:

Deep Tissue massage is best suited to those who are experienced spa-goers. If you are someone who needs a heavier hand in order to get any benefit out of a massage, you should request a therapist who is very strong. If you enjoy a strong touch, the therapist will use more intense pressure to work deeper into the connective tissue and break down adhesions beneath the skin. Think elbows and forearms used to disperse back tension and wake up tired limbs.

Monday through Friday, $90 | $105 | $130

Saturday and Sunday, $100 | $115 | $140

 

Sports massage is geared towards someone who is preparing for an athletic event, or recovering from a workout. This is type of massage uses faster Swedish strokes meant to invigorate making it ideal 1) before or after an athletic event or exercise regimen, or 2) to treat a specific sore spot or injury. It helps with recovery time after, and aids in preparing the muscles before the event. Strokes may include wringing, squeezing and stretching of the muscles.

Monday through Friday, $90 | $105 | $130

Saturday and Sunday, $100 | $115 | $140

 

Maternity massage is a traditional Swedish massage using side-lying techniques and lots of body pillows for support. While the entire body is massaged, special attention is given to the legs and lower back to promote circulation and ease discomfort. We also feature the bodyCushion, a specially designed pregnancy pillow that allows expecting mothers to lie safely and comfortably on their stomachs into the later stages of pregnancy. We employ the bodyCushion in all Maternity massages at Body Restoration Spa.

Monday through Friday, $90 | $105 | $130

Saturday and Sunday, $100 | $115 | $140

NOTE: please specify if you would like to receive a Maternity massage using the bodyCushion or if you prefer to have the massage in side-lying position.
