At the core of the Elemental Nature philosophy, which is based on the science of Ayurveda, is balancing the Five elements. The five elements exist in all of us.

The imbalanced qualities of each element are ways that the body and mind express stress. Our talented massage therapists are dedicated to helping create balance in your mind and body through therapeutic massage practices.

Chakra™ Balancing Massage
This unique experience utilizes our Aveda Chakra Aromas to focus on healing the mind, body, and spirit. Your talented massage therapist uses deep tissue massage techniques to your back. This massage technique works to open up the muscles along the spine where the seven major chakra centers are located. In addition, your therapist will incorporate foot reflexology techniques and guided meditation to bring awareness to these seven chakra centers within us. Our goal is to balance the energy in these centers, creating an experience that will help to improve your overall balance and well-being.
Chakras: In Ayurveda and various yoga traditions, chakra refers to an energy center that interacts with both the physical and energetic bodies. The word itself is derived from the Sanskrit chakra, meaning “wheel,” alluding to the vortex of swirling energy believed to reside in each chakra’s location. There are several different chakra systems ranging between 7 to 114 in number, each with a unique vibrational frequency and healing potency. If a chakra becomes blocked, it can have a significant impact on physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Emotional and physical disturbances in the body and mind are thought to stem from an under-active, overactive, or blocked chakra, preventing a balanced flow of energy. The ideal state is one in which all seven chakras are open, allowing a balanced flow of energy.
Hot Fusion Stone Massage℠
Experience the aromatic power of traditional North American plants fused with the sensation of smooth stone massage. Your massage therapist will begin your massage experience by guiding you to choose an Aroma to incorporate into your experience. During a hot stone massage, your therapist will use stones that are smooth, flat, and usually made of the volcanic rock type called basalt. These stones are chosen because they retain heat. The stones used for your massage are placed in hot water to warm up before being applied to your body. Then, the techniques of a regular massage are applied as your therapist holds on to the stone, applying pressure into the muscles and helping you relax deeply. Hot stones can promote relaxation of the muscles and joints in the body to ease both pain and spasms, creating a therapeutic experience. Opposing sensations of warm and cool-fused stone techniques can also soothe and invigorate your body.
This type of hot stone therapeutic treatment is thought to have originated in China almost 2,000 years ago. Since then, the technique of using stones for healing has been used in many different cultures, including the Americas, Africa, Egypt, and India.

There is no greater expression of self-love than anointing ourselves from head to toe with warm oil—this practice is called Abhyanga. An Abhyanga massage helps to restore the balance of the doshas and enhances well-being and longevity.

Cupping is an ancient, holistic method for the treatment of a variety of ailments. The therapy of cupping has been documented in early Egyptian and Chinese medical practices for thousands of years.
This therapy softens tightened muscles and loosens any adhesions or knots. By lifting the connecting tissues, cupping opens blockages in the lymphatic nodes. This action allows the flow of lymph and releases excess fluids. This process also draws inflammation from the deep tissues to the surface of the skin so that they can heal. Massage cupping therapy uses several different techniques. They can be moved to massage the body or remain stationary. Your therapist designs the movements in accordance with the area being treated. Every movement used has a healing effect. Circular strokes are often used on the shoulders, hips, and thighs, while long, gliding strokes are used when treating areas on the back.
Benefits of this Ancient therapeutic treatment:
- Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions
- Reduce painful trigger points
- Improve circulation, blood and lymph circulation
- Relieve pain
- Promote mobility and range of motion
- Improves mature scars
Please note that this treatment does create circular bruising in the treatment area that will resolve.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.
