Massage:  Please tell your therapist if you are allergic to oils or scents and the level of pressure that is comfortable for you. Cash tips are always a great way to say thank you if satisfied with your service!

** A Gentle Reminder **

 

Our center is a quiet sanctuary for practicing yoga, meditating, and experiencing the healing that comes from acupuncture and massage. Please remove shoes and place on shelves in coatroom and keep voices low as classes and treatments are in progress.
