Hot Stone Massage - Smooth stones are heated and then lubricated with oil and/or essential oils where the therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. As an extension of the therapist's hands, the use of massage stones includes deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.

Spirit Work - This is a one-on-one service used to help support and journey with you towards greater self-awareness and wholeness of spirit. Some call this work Spiritual Mentoring/Guidance, some call it Holistic Coaching, I call it Spirit Work because that is the goal, to work with your spirit and bring you back into alignment with your most authentic self. Some of the tools I use in this work are Breathwork, Dreamwork/Dream Interpretation, Meditation, Energywork, Somatic Exploration, body awareness, and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping). Much of the time it is simply conversation to gain a clearer understanding of yourself and where you are and where you are going. You may choose to have one session using any of these modalities or book a series of sessions to work on a specific issue.
60 minutes - $100/90 minutes - $160/120 minutes - $200

Thai massage takes place on a futon mat on the floor, and you wear loose fitting clothing. Some spas, like The Mandarin Oriental, Miami,, provide you with an outfit to wear. Others may ask you to wear something loose and comfortable, like sweat pants, during your Thai massage. You start by laying on your back, and the therapist uses gentle compression and stretching techniques to open up your body, beginning with you legs. Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part.
Thai massage is done with all your clothes on, so some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with nudity during a Swedish massage . But it is not the best choice for first-time spa-goers. The therapist literally uses his or her whole body, including her feet, to move your body into various positions during Thai massage, so in some ways it feels more intimate than a Swedish massage, where you lay on a massage table and are covered with sheets.
Thai massage has its roots in a spiritual tradition, and its purpose is to heal a person physically, emotionally and spiritually.
