As we move out of the summer season, we exchange outdoor life for the cozy couch and warm blankets. At Dosha, we offer several different massage techniques that go beyond just relaxation. Each has a specific focus that will enhance and revive you.
Massage Focus: Relaxation
Our Swedish Massage incorporates a massage technique that relaxes the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Massage Focus: Deep Relaxation
Deep tissue is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain or limited mobility due to athletic training, repetitive movements, and/or overuse. Deep tissue massage improves lymphatic circulation and drainage thus improving flexibility and range of motion in the affected area and facilitating the movement of toxin. Book a Deep Tissue Massage!
Massage Focus: Prevention & Recovery
Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. It is ideal for people experiencing sports injuries, chronic pain, or restricted range of motion. Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time after an event. For anyone participating in regular physical activity, sports massage therapy every week or two may be a great addition to your normal regimen. Book a Sports Massage!
Massage Focus: Prenatal Wellness
For our mothers-to-be, a prenatal massage is a wonderful compliment to prenatal care. As the body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy, a prenatal massage will help relieve many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and loss of sleep.

Massage Focus: Thermal Treatment
A Hot Stone Massage is a variation of a traditional massage that utilizes stones heated from 120 to 150 degrees with water. The thermal energy of heated rocks promotes great relaxation and muscle release. Large warm stones are placed on the Chakra points of the body while smaller, palm-sized stones are used to massage the arms, legs, fingers, and toes. The heat can help relieve muscle tension and allow the body to relax and be at ease. Book a Hot Stone Treatment!
