$45 for a One-Hour Swedish or Hawaiian Massage ($115 Value)
Massage therapist Karen Reifinger performs a continual sequence of gliding, tapping, and kneading motions for the Swedish massage. This modality gently relaxes the body and increases circulation. During the Hawaiian lomilomi massage, Karen circles the massage table and uses her forearms and hands in long-flowing, wave-like movements covering the full length of the body. Lomilomi dissipates neuromuscular tension and instills a sense of mental tranquility as energy flows out from the body. Both services also include sessions with the Energy Enhancement System, an advanced technology designed to generate energy fields that can revitalize both the body and mind.
