At Urban Escape, we believe that no two individuals are exactly alike, so while we offer a variety of massage modalities for you to choose from, in most instances your therapist will customize your massage session to meet your individual needs and goals. For instance, if you are experiencing sciatic pain but want a hot stone massage, your therapist will perform a hot stone massage, and incorporate the appropriate massage techniques to address your sciatic issues at the same time. If you are unsure what massage treatment to choose, you can simply schedule an appointment and discuss your treatment goals with your therapist prior to beginning your massage; your therapist will then help determine what treatment(s) will best meet your unique needs.
While we encourage clients to schedule a minimum of one hour to achieve the best results from a massage, we do offer 30 minute, site-specific, massage sessions for $40.

Taking time for yourself during pregnancy can be uplifting emotionally. The soothing touch of massage during pregnancy allows the mommy-to-be to unwind and feel comforted from the stress her body is in due to increased weight, shifting posture and adjusting hormone levels.
This massage is done with the client lying on her side, with her head, legs and stomach supported with cushions and pillows. The therapist can then work safely on her back without creating any increased pressure.
For a portion of the session the client will be helped into a semi-reclining position with her legs elevated. This position allows the therapist to treat the rest of the body (shoulders, arms, hands, legs, feet, scalp), and it allows the client to experience great comfort and deep relaxation-in the safest way possible.
Spellbound Aromatherapy Massage
Your therapist will help you choose the essential oils that best fit your needs and will blend them into your massage oil. Soothing, kneading and stretching massage strokes will leave you thoroughly rejuvenated

Massage Cupping is the combination of massage techniques and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. The increased local blood supply to the muscles and skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away through the veins. Clients often feel deep warmth during the session and the action on the nervous system is sedating, leaving clients in a deep state of relaxation. Perfect for those with chronic muscle pain and tension, or anyone experiencing cold or flu symptoms.

The feet have thousands of nerve endings with trigger points that correlate to the entire body. Using acupressure points to stimulate relaxation throughout the entire body, a foot massage is a great treat and helps reduce stress and assists in overall relaxation for better health.
The following therapies can be purchased independently or as an add on to any massage.
Ear Candling, or Thermo Auricular Therapy as it is also known, can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area.
The candles work by vaporizing their ingredients once lit, causing convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction which lets the vapors gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear it forms a seal which enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out of the ear.
What can be treated with Ear Candles?
* Tinitus and compacted ear wax
* Sore throats and hay fever
* Headache and migraine
* Sinusitis and rhinitis
* Menier's Disease
What cannot be treated with Ear Candles?
* Perforation or lack of eardrum
* Ventilation tubes, auricular drains or grommets
* Recent ear surgery
* Auricular cysts
* Acute mastoiditis
* Otosclerosis or Otospongiosis
* Ear tumor
If you are in doubt about any of these conditions or problems you have with your ear, please consult your physician before scheduling a treatment.
Your therapist will use 2-4 candles per ear, depending on your needs. Price varies based on number of candles used. Each candle takes approximately 10 minutes to burn, so a minimum treatment of two candles per ear takes approximately 40 minutes.
|40 minutes (2 candles per ear)||$40.00|
|60 minutes (3 candles per ear)||$60.00|
|80 minutes (4 candles per ear)||$80.00|
