60/90 Minute Massage

  •  

    60 Minute Massage


    Our most popular massage option, the 60 minute massage is designed to allow clients the time they need to have problem areas addressed while also achieving a state of relaxation. A 60 minute massage can support healing  or relaxation, and can enhance physical performance when performed routinely. Clients are encouraged to share specific problem areas they wish to have addressed during their session.

    Cost: $65

  •  

    90 Minute Massage


    Those seeking relief from pain or wishing to increase range of motion and mobility are encouraged to book a 90 minute massage. The increased time will allow the massage therapist to better identify the root issue of pain and address the issue through a variety of modalities, as needed. An increased sense of relief and relaxation can be achieved during this longer massage experience. 

    Cost: $95

Specialty Massages

  •  

    Cupping Therapy


    with 60 or 90 minute massage: 

    Cupping Therapy is a practice in which cups are placed on the client's body in strategic locations where the client wishes to address pain, inflammation, or blood flow concerns. The therapist then adds suction to the cups, allowing toxins to be brought to the skin where they are more easily removed. While the cups are in place, the therapist will massage other areas of the body, allowing for more body work to be accomplished in a shorter frame of time.

    Clients will experience varying levels of circular marks on their skin post-massage and are encouraged to hydrate before and after the massage to maximize the therapy's benefits. Those taking blood thinners, are pregnant, or experiencing any health issues should consult with their physician before participating in Cupping Therapy. 

    Cost: $90 (60 minute), $120 (90 minute) 

  •  

    Hot Stone


    with 60 or 90 minute Massage: 

    Hot stone for athletic recovery is an excellent way to more effectively warm up the fascia, allowing for a deeper, more beneficial recovery massage. The therapist incorporates the hot stones by using them as a massaging tool to address tight muscles and increase mobility.

    Looking for a more relaxing experience? Hot stones can do that, too! The stones can, instead, be simply placed on the client's body (pictured) in strategic locations to allow for a comforting, warming effect during a traditional massage.

    Clients may experience a quick release of body heat after a hot stone massage and are encouraged to bring an extra layer of clothing to wear post-massage.

    Cost: $90 (60 minute), $120 (90 minute) 

  • Coining (coming June 1)


    Andrew will be offering a new specialty massage called Coining.

    With Coining, also known as Gua Sha or Scraping, the therapist uses a tool with a blunt edge to apply short, firm and repeated strokes along the length of the tissues needing treatment.   

    Coining is known to reduce pain, muscle stiffness & inflammation, increase mobility, stimulate the immune system, stretch muscle & fascia, promote healthy circulation of muscles and organs, and increase micro-perfusion of surface tissues.

    Like Cupping, Coining often leaves a temporary, reddish discoloration of the skin that may last 3-10 days after treatment.  Though this may resemble bruising, it is not.  There is no damage to the tissues. Clients are encouraged to hydrate well before and after treatment, and to keep discolored skin out of direct sunlight until the color fades. 

    Cost: $90 (60 minutes) and $120 (90 minutes)

  • Prenatal Massage (coming June 1)


    Rachel will be offering prenatal massage.  A prenatal massage can help to alleviate pain and stiffness that can occur in different areas of the body during pregnancy.

    A prenatal massage is similar to a regular massage with adjustments made for body placement, comfort, and safety.  It will help to relieve tension in both the muscles and the mind.  Regular prenatal massages may reduce pain and swelling, improve mood, and make for an easier delivery.  

    Cost: $65 (60 minutes) and $95 (90 minutes)

Customer Testimonial

“We reached out to WellWorks to schedule a chair massage day for our staff and could not have been happier! The entire process was quick and painless: simple to coordinate and minimal effort on our side beyond getting the word out to our very excited team. The massage therapist, Rachel, was incredibly talented and great to work with, too. Needless to say, our staff was thrilled that we scheduled this and the day ended with three requests to hire Rachel full-time and several requests to make this a repeat event. As a local company, we were thrilled to have such a seamless partnership with another community organization!"
