  • Also great for athletes or anybody with chronic muscle tightness or soreness

Traditional Thai Massage - $95/$135
Thai  Massage, also known as Thai Yoga Massage, combines yoga stretching, compression and acupressure to focuses on the connections between the spiritual, emotional and physiological self. In fact, Thai massage therapists are trained to move very slowly and carefully, being particularly mindful of every movement and touch and to provide therapy in an almost meditative state. This sense of calm and of self-awareness is transferred directly to the client through the gentle, yet spiritually powerful touch.

Thai Herbal Massage - $120/$160
Herbal compresses filled with Thai herbs are steamed and applied along Thai energy lines by compressing the herbs into the body. The warmth of the compresses and aroma of the herbs relax sore achy muscles and allows you to get into a deeper state of relaxation.  Then top it off with thai stretches and a therapeutic massage.  After your treatment, enjoy your herbal compresses at home.

Reflexology – $50/25 minutes
Reflexology is a modality that deals with reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to organs, glands and parts of the body. The reflex points are massaged with firm pressure to release any stress and tension in those zones – and the corresponding organs.  Often times, clients will seek reflexology to top off a facial or massage service.

Raindrop Therapy – $95/$135
Raindrop Therapy is a highly therapeutic and aromatic massage treatment involving the application of seven essential oils and two essential oil blends.  These oils are applied in such a way that it is likened to soft drops of rain falling on the body.  Various massage techniques and deep penetrating heat are used in conjunction with the oils to create a wonderful treatment with both physical and mental benefits.

Each treatment is designed to reduce stress and/or help relieve your tight, sore muscles.  SpartaWorks is all about healing. Whether it is providing relief from a hectic workday, or helping to regain mobility in a client with chronic inflexibility, we are there to help. You may want to ask yourself…

  • Do you need to relax, unwind or find some way to reduce the stress in your life?
  • Would you like to get more quality sleep?
  • Do you need to escape from the pressure of the kids, work, and all of your responsibilities?
  • Do you have tight, sore muscles that need relief?
  • Do you need to control stress and live happier?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, SpartaWorks massage services can help. Every day we have clients telling us how much their sleep has improved and how much better they feel after receiving our services.
