La Vie Signature Deep Tissue Massage
30 min - $60

A La Vie ‘Signature’ and our most popular massage. Deep tissue is a more specific type of massage that the focus is on the deep layers of muscle tissue, tendons & fascia (the protective tissue that surrounds muscle, bones & joints) in the body. As the name suggests, the therapist applies deeper pressure to release chronic muscle tension and pain. Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended by many doctors as an alternative treatment for chronic pain. While often more affordable and healthier, deep tissue work reduces inflammation, alleviates muscle tension, improves blood flow/pressure, breaks up scar tissue, rehabilitates injured muscles, improves movement and provides stress relief. Includes aromatherapy inhalation and hot towel ritual.

Aromatherapy Massage provides all of the elements of a Swedish Massage with the addition of highly concentrated essential oils combined into your massage lotion. Essential oils can be very personal as our sense of smell is attached to the limbic system which controls emotions, hormones and influences the nervous system. La Vie only uses the finest essential oils extracted from pure plant and flower extracts. Before your session, you will be able to choose your custom aroma. Essential oils can be seasonal and various options are available. Standard oils such as lavender and chamomile are naturally relaxing and anti inflammatory.

In Reflexology, pressure is applied to specific reflex points on the foot. These points correspond to organs and areas of the body. The treatment is said to induce a healing response, even alleviating some ailments. Reflexology can address anything from headaches to sinus problems to stomach issues. If sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when an area is stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ. With repeated pressure and manipulation of nerve endings, reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy. It is said to do so through moving the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses. This ultimately improves overall health and balance.
Sinus Relief Massage
Sinus Relief Massage combines aromatherapy and lymphatic drainage. The technique opens air passages and relieves sinus pressure by eliminating congestion. The treatment begins with a peppermint & eucalyptus infused hot towel to open sinuses and encourage deep breathing.
TMJ Massage offers relief for people with temporomandibular joint disorder (a condition commonly referred to as TMJ syndrome or TMJ). Marked by pain and stiffness in the jaw, face, and neck, TMJ affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to the side of your skull.

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up.
Thai massage is a form of therapeutic touch that differs in many ways from traditional massage. Instead of a massage table, you lie on a mat on the floor while the provider manipulates your body in certain ways to stimulate organs and improve flexibility. Thai massage is part of traditional Thai medicine. Similar to Chinese medicine, it works with the body's energetic pathways. These are also called sen.
