At Samsara Wellness Center, we take massage seriously, looking at the whole person, not just their acute symptoms to help provide immediate + long-lasting results. Your first experience begins with a complimentary consultation, where your bodyworker can listen to your health history, observe your postural alignment, and discuss massage options. Follow up massages always have a extra time so you can update your bodyworker on any recent changes in your well-being.
No two massages or bodies are alike. Our bodyworkers use various massage styles, techniques and tools to help change the patterns of the body that contribute to discomfort. The tools used, such as hot or cold stones, Chinese cups, crystal essence sprays, are all part of the cost of your treatment at no extra charge.
Our massage therapists help to educate you on stretches and self-care you can do at home, changes you can make at work to practice proper body mechanics and correct breathing to help ease anxiety and depression. We are committed to helping you understand your body and help it heal. Physical limitations, those with cancer, auto-immune diseases, injuries and more are welcome here. We can create a massage for your specific needs.
