“Thai Massage is like 10,000 waves washing over the body”
Nuad Bo-Rarn or “ancient Thai” massage employs leverage, compression, traction & stretching along the 10 major Thai meridian lines to induce a state of energized relaxation. You will emerge feeling longer, lighter, looser!
Performed on the floor on a padded mat - please wear loose clothing, long sleeves & loose pants preferable . 75-minutes is doable though 90-minutes is recommended.
TABLE THAI is a modified Thai massage performed on the table. Plenty of stretching along with some Western-style kneading. You will disrobe for this version.
45-60min of Well-Being massage with a 15-30min MiniFacial. As much massage as you want - disrobe completely for full body or snuggle in a cozy spa wrap for specific attention to neck/shoulders or calves/feet.
MiniFacial combines acupressure & gentle massage to relax tissues & stimulate lymphatic drainage. We'll do a non-invasive cleanse with a customized facial oil, cream and/or exfoliating scrub, followed by a choice of all-natural mask, hydrosol toner, oat & aloe cooling mask & moisture-locking finish with a shea butter/wheatgerm balm of our own concoction.
75min $140 Also available as a couples in the Alley, 90min only $330
ZB works the key joints from occiput to ankle, amplifying vitality while improving body alignment. Strong but gentle traction, stretching, trigger point & compression clear the path for energy flow. Guaranteed to make you feel more grounded & in your body. Performed fully clothed.
From Martha- “Zero Balancing is a profound experience on its own & I've incorporated its techniques into everything I do. ZB Plus gives us extra time to include Thai stretching or twists, foot reflexology, champissage (head massage) or other goodies from my toolbox.”
Hypnotic music & rhythmic pressure get the serotonin flowing. Thai massage stretching & Zero Balancing elongate & open joint spaces, Deep focused work including Trigger Point & Shiatsu unwinds held tension, helping you to achieve full relaxation.
Myofascial Release (John Barnes school) addresses persistent pain and/or structural dysfunction that is being perpetuated by “holding or bracing patterns”in the body. Myo-Thai combines MFR with stretching & compression techniques from Classic Thai massage. Very little oil is used in this massage that has been designed exclusively for The Well by Amanda D! Congratulations on 12 years with The Well!
CranioSacral therapy works with the natural self-correcting mechanisms of the body, specifically the membranes & fluids that surround the brain & spinal cord, to detect & release restrictions in mobility. Your therapist taps into the rhythmic movement of the cranio-sacral system to pinpoint core issues so treatment can focus on causes rather than symptoms. You’ll achieve a deep relaxation during & after the session. Wear comfortable clothing.
Not for the beginner! A mix of deep Oriental-style meridian work with neuromuscular & myofascial therapies. Trigger point work is a staple in this massage. Recovery Mode is geared to those suffering from chronic pain, long-standing compensation patterns and/or stress. Tailored specifically for each client. AVAILABLE by advance appt Fridays only in summer
Cupping uses suction to draw muscle & tissue up, like a reverse massage. A single Cupping treatment can have the same effect as three or more deep tissue massages.
The negative pressure pulls tension & toxins out of the underlying tissue, increasing the cleansing flow of lymph & allowing for fresh oxygenated nutrition-rich blood to flow to the deeper musculature.
Cupping is used to relieve pain, treat stiff tendons & muscles, boost immune function & improve digestion, always while promoting relaxation & well-being.
Please expect Cupping marks (not bruises) to linger for up to a week.
