Most amazing and relaxing massage that I have ever experienced. As a professional mother of two children, I often use massage and spas to relax. I have never received a more relaxing massage in my life!!!! I was so pleased that I am already booking my next appointment and plan to make visiting Karen a monthly must! -JT, Beacon, NY

I may incorporate several of these modalities into your session depending on your goals and what your body needs at the time.
SWEDISH is the most common form of massage using long, smooth strokes with medium pressure
DEEP TISSUE targets deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue for chronically tight and painful muscles. People frequently feel sore for one or two days after this type of work.
PILLOSSAGE is a groundbreaking modality that combines hands-on work with specifically designed thermal flax pillows enabling the therapist to work slowly and deeply through layers of soft tissue.
ACUPRESSURE uses gentle finger pressure on points of the body to unblock energy and increase blood and lymph flow.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY involves applying pressure to tender points or knots to relieve pain.
BREATHWORK stimulates the relaxation response.
THAI STRETCHES involve rhythmic stretching and compressions along energy meridians.
AROMATHERAPY is especially beneficial in reducing stress and balancing the emotions.
Chronic Stress has been attributed to headaches, insomnia, more frequent colds/flu, muscle tension, depression, fatigue, stomach problems, weight gain/loss, high blood pressure and more.
Repetitive Stress Injuries are very common - be sure to take notice of what you do on a regular basis and how you do it! Computer use, posture, non-supportive footwear, heavy shoulder bags all contribute and can bring you pain and/or discomfort and long range physical problems.
Some conditions may be contraindicated or require doctor approval for Massage Therapy: fractures, blood clots, burns, rashes, open wounds, rheumatoid arthritis, severe osteoporosis, cancer, pregnancy....if unsure, please consult with your physician before scheduling.

RTM HOT STONE MASSAGE*
90 MINUTES.....$150 ♦ 120 MINUTES.....$175
This ancient therapy is both healing and grounding, as well as uber-relaxing! I use a combination of Basalt (smooth) and River (textured) stones with Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to create a total sensory experience. Heated stones are used for placement to relax and soften muscles while I massage with smaller stones, adjusting the pressure to your preference. Energy pathways become unblocked, muscles loosen and your mind quiets in this meditative modality.
