Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for a 55-minute reflexology massage (a $75 value)
- $39 for a 50-minute eclectic mix massage (an $85 value)
The reflexology massage applies pressure to only the hands and feet with the goal of improving overall health and balancing the body’s chi, or energy while fully clothed. The eclectic mix massage combines reflexology, Swedish, lomilomi, Thai, and hot-stone modalities; therapists use their own blends of these special techniques. Massages are complemented with aromatherapy and heated tables.

Go Madd 4 Massage
A butter-yellow canine named Praline formerly comforted nursing-home residents at pet-therapy sessions. Now, she serves as the tail-wagging mascot of Go Madd 4 Massage. Owner and massage therapist Diana Beranek takes Praline on strolls that cover up to 15 miles each week, and also practices pet massage therapy on the pooch's muscles. However, the tender care that Diana lavishes on Praline isn't reserved only for her pet; she also relieves physical stress and pain for human clients, drawing on 15 years of massage experience and a knowledge of deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone massage techniques. Clients recline on a heated table surrounded by candles as soft music or recordings of Top-40 whale songs lull minds to peace. Heated lotion keeps flesh warm, and essential oils put nostrils at ease. A large massage room hosts twosomes with tense backs or a shared muscular knot.
