Craniosacral Therapy

$60. 60 minutes


According to the Upledger Institute, Craniosacral therapy uses gentle touch to improve the function of the central nervous system.


Craniosacral Therapy celebrates the art of subtlety. Craniosacral work is nothing like a massage so coming into your session with an idea of what to expect is helpful. Only 5 grams of pressure is used.  Different points throughout the skull, spine and sacrum are held while the practitioner allows the body to unwind on its own. It's helpful for releasing stuck patterns in life as well as deeply relaxing to the nervous system.



Botanical Facial

$50. 45 minutes


European-style facial with an emphasis on herby, natural and organic ingredients. Deep cleanse, steam, facial massage, seasonal masks/serums/moisturizers. Acupressure, gentle facial cupping and craniosacral techniques are incorporated, along with, neck and warmed hand massage.


What makes this facial special is that it is skin care based on your constitution. We go over your energetics and match herbs to your specific needs. Michigan herbalist Jim McDonald gives a great comprehensive definition of what energetics means, "Recognizing the qualities of an individual and the imbalance they're experiencing and then choosing the plants you plan to suggest based on their qualitative nature is "energetics"." So to bring this back to facials, energetics are often seen/felt on the skin. For instance, does your skin feel dry? Are your hands and feet always cold? Then herbs and oils that are warming and deliver moisture would be chosen for your skin using the energetic principles.

Enzymatic Facial Treatment
