Our massage therapists are the best in the business.  Each fluid stroke will have you melting into relaxation and bliss.  Aches and pains are but a faint memory after one of our professionals works her or his magic on a tired, sore body. Come experience what many of our client's have described to us as "the best massage of my life" (especially paired with a float or sauna experience). Many massage styles are available including our coveted CBD massage.



Our light bed is filled with specialized red, blue, UVB and UVA bulbs designed to aid the body in creating its own highly usable vitamin D. Our clients have also reported finding amazing relief from such skin ailments as eczema, psoriasis and more. Known as our "Happy Bed", our light bed has been shown to induce an overall feeling of joy combating the gloom that may result from our area's tendency to create less sunshine during certain times of year.
