We have an extensive list of massage options here at The Upper Hand Day Spa. Each massage has its own special benefit and purpose. To make it easier to navigate we've broken it down into two categories; Western Philosophy and Eastern Philosophy. Click on these links to view each page for pricing and descriptions. Many of our massage services are available in 30 minute, 45 minute, 60 minute, 90 minute and 120 minute sessions.
Therapeutic Massage has many benefits. Massage encourages the body to transition from being highly activated into the "rest and digest" mode. Massage lowers blood pressure, aids in the circulation of lymph and blood, relieves stress and reduces pain. It improves joint mobility and flexibility, reduces post-surgical and post-injury adhesions as well as swelling and improves psychological well-being.
Individuals should not receive massage when they have a fever or when feeling ill. You should postpone massage until you are feeling better. You should not receive a massage within 4 hours from having taken any type of prescription strength pain medication, nor within 12 hours of drinking an alcoholic beverage. Guests should not arrive under the influence of Marijuana either, as you may have a blunted response to pain. As a result, some modalities which require intact sensations such as hot stones or deep tissue massage may be contraindicated.
As an added bonus almost all of our massage services include complimentary Hot Towels and Aromatherapy, as part of the session, when it is appropriate. We also offer the option to include Mini Add-On's to a massage. Curious about the benefits of Cupping, Bamboo Massage or Warm River Stone Massage, but not sure it's for you? Ask to have any one of these three sampler services added to your massage session, when booking your appointment, for a small up-charge of only $5. Each option can be incorporated into your session without adding additional time, but with increased benefits to a specific focus area or muscle. Want More Hot Towels? Get two more Hot Towels added to your session for a small up-charge of only $5.
To help further customize your massage experience, you can choose to add our amazing Muscle Melt Liniment to your experience, for a focus area, again for only a $5 up-charge. With over 37 herbs and essential oils, this liniment helps to immediately reduce inflammation, increase circulation, alleviate pain & soreness. There's even the option to take it to another level of pain relief, with our Muscle Melt Liniment containing 300mg of CBD oil, for an up-charge of $10, for a focus area.
