Oil Massage

For anyone looking for a “Deep Tissue” massage, please visit my Therapeutic Massage page. For specific problems, I pretty much will work to whatever depth is needed to get the job done. Those techniques are performed dry, without oil, so that I can optimally grip and work with the connective tissue.

As for “oil” massage, I prefer to only use it for focusing on relaxation and nurturing the skin with super-healthy oils. For such occasions, I have the following three options. Hot towels are provided at the end of the session for people to wipe off any access oil.

Aromatic Desert – This is not actually a standalone session but, rather, an add-on to a ‘dry’ therapeutic massage session for people who still want a little pampering. It adds 10 minutes to the end of a session for oil massage of the head, neck and shoulders. Fractionated Coconut Oil is used with your choice of available essential oils. $20 upgrade for added time.

“General Oil” Massage –For the clients wanting to have a session that is more of a ‘pampering’ session, closer to that of a so-called Swedish Massage, I still perform sessions based on my original specialization in Russian-based sports massage. Its techniques are very similar to Swedish massage except for its heavy focus of using different rhythms to affect circulation and the nervous system.

High-quality oil is used with your choice of available essential oils.

The pricing is the same my base price for my sessions:

One-time pricing: $95 for 1 hour, $140 for 90 minutes, and $180 for 2 hours

Interval pricing (at least once/month): $87 for 1 hour, $127 for 90 minutes, and $160 for 2 hours

“Therapeutic Oil” Massage – This uses the same Russian-based techniques but uses more expensive oils infused with additional “infusion” oils that boost the skin-rejuvenating value of the oil. $20 upgrade.
