Our specialized workshops are comprised of several pre-selected services intended to provide clients with a comprehensive treatment approach to tackling specific health-related issues. The programs last one month and consist of individual services as well as classes and groups.
Stress Reduction: Individuals have more control over the stress in their lives than they often realize. This program may help clients take charge of their life so they can focus on what is really important to them.
Gastrointestinal: The discomfort of a gastrointestinal issue can cause a person to feel uneasy discussing it with others and to avoid seeking treatment. This program encourages clients to eat a proper diet, practice relaxation, and utilize positive thinking to reduce gastrointestinal distress, anxiety, and negative thoughts.
Postnatal: Recovering from a pregnancy can be a long and arduous process. This program may help women recover quicker by motivating them to look and feel their best again.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A SESSION?
If clients simply want occasional relaxation, then schedulint sessions every three to six weeks may be sufficient. To address specific conditions, we recommend clients schedule sessions more frequently at first and then taper off to a maintenance routine. The frequency of sessions should be discussed with the massage therapist following treatment when he/she has a better understanding of the client's particular needs.
WILL INSURANCE COVER MASSAGE?
Massage is not covered by insurance; however, clients can submit an invoice for some conditions to their insurance company, which may provide some reimbursement. Call the center to ask about your specific insurance plan’s coverage.
