Therapeutic Massage at Amala
At Amala, we know that massage therapy is more than just a luxury! The benefits of massage for the mind, body + spirit are amazing and far reaching. Now, more than ever, massage therapy is recognized by the medical field for its ability to improve circulation and lymphatic flow, decrease anxiety and hypertension, stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (our relaxation response), and lengthen and soften tight, short muscles that may be pulling your body out of alignment. The application of specialized NeuroMuscular Massage Techniques, can also help relieve chronic pain that may not have responded to other treatments or that may not have been fully resolved following physical therapy.
Our therapist, Crystal, specializes in NeuroMuscular Techniques (NMT), and incorporates myofascial work, lymphatic drainage techniques, pain relief and relaxation for the physical body, as well as the emotional, spiritual being. A massage at Amala, really is the best of both worlds-- with passion, compassion, intention and intuition, she strives to deliver therapeutic, beneficial treatment work, while also delivering a calming, relaxing, and rejuvenating experience for the mind, body, and spirit.

Swedish Relaxation Techniques, NeuroMuscular Techniques, Myofascial Release Techniques and Lymphatic Drainage Techniques are customized and combined as needed, to relax the mind, body + spirit, reduce stress, decrease pain, and increase circulation and overall well-being. Whether you are suffering from back pain, neck and shoulder stiffness, headaches, knee pain, TMJ discomfort, or you just need to unwind and deeply relax, this treatment will be just what you need!
***The Add-On fee will apply as needed for work that is deeper and/or more strenuous on the therapist-- NMT as well as Deep Tissue work create more stress on the fingers, wrists, and overall body of the therapist; sometimes this fee may be added after the treatment is done, when the treatment work required more than mild to moderate exertion and pressure from the therapist.
Moon Time-Sacred Cycle Massage 60, 90 Minutes $85, $120
This is a massage created specifically for the unique needs of women! Just as the moon has it's phases, it's seasons and it's monthly cycles, most women are also granted a similar, distinct, powerful, cyclic journey.
The truth is, as blessed and powerful a thing as this sacred cycle is, often times it comes with an abundance of uncomfortable, difficult, and for some debilitating side effects. So, the purpose behind The Moon Time-Sacred Cycle Massage is to soothe, relieve, balance and calm the mind, body + spirit of the divine feminine- YOU- by treating what ails you and holding space for you!
During this special treatment we will be using Women's Balance essential oil blend, which is a balancing blend of relaxing patchouli, uplifting geranium, nurturing rose and rejuvenating frankincense, that helps to harmonize imbalances during menstruation and menopause, both emotionally and physically. A soothing, weighted, warm compress will be used as needed, while your specific areas of issue and concern will be treated to a relaxing, soothing, tension releasing therapeutic massage.
To finish your treatment, a complimentary, caffeine free, Raspberry Leaf Herbal Tea sachet will be given to you to take home and enjoy following your treatment. This treatment is recommended as a monthly self-care ritual, to be scheduled in the days leading up to, after, or during your sacred cycle- whenever it is most needed for you!
