Expectant moms experience unique physical and emotional changes that occur as a result of pregnancy, including increased weight, shifting posture, and adjusting hormone levels. While this is a beautiful period of heightened expectation and joy, mothers-to-be also endure heightened physical discomforts that range from muscular tension and headaches to pressure on the knees.
Maternity massage is a natural touch therapy treatment aimed at alleviating these and other pregnancy related symptoms. Experienced therapists choose techniques that are safe and effective for pregnant women. Women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning one of our massage treatments. If at any time during the prenatal massage you experience discomfort, tell your therapist immediately. Taking time for yourself during pregnancy can be uplifting emotionally. The soothing essence of massage allows pregnant moms to unwind and feel serene, healthy, and comforted during a period of added physical and emotional stress.
Thus unique massage offers two therapists and four hands creating an experience you will not soon forget. A four-hands massage can be like experiencing two full body massages at the same time. When two therapists and four hands touch your body, your mind reacts differently.

But very quickly your brain realizes it’s not sure who is doing what, and gives up control. This is a powerful treatment for anyone who has a hard time just “being” during treatments.

During a FIT Bodywrap session, far infrared heat is generated very close to the body, and can penetrate 1-2 inches, heating areas where fats and toxins have been stored without generating uncomfortable heat on the surface of the skin. As many fats and toxins are soluble at temperatures of just over 100 degrees, these fats and toxins, including cholesterol, heavy metals and acids, can be dissolved and excreted through our sweat or kidneys.
Heating the body can activate over 2 million sweat glands as the body seeks to cool itself. Extensive sweating can be very energy intensive, increasing metabolic rates, blood flow, tissue oxygenation and burning calories as you sweat and for some time afterward.
The caloric consumption can be further enhanced with use of the FIT Booster Spray, which can enhance microcirculation, stimulates skin detoxification and reduces cellulite. The FIT Bodywrap can uniquely target this heat to specific areas, controlled to the specific degree, or immerse the entire body in evenly applied far infrared heat. Depending on the areas targeted, temperatures applied, and session duration and frequency, a variety of benefits can be derived.
Most people will produce substantial amounts of sweat during a 60 minute FIT Bodywrap weight loss session. While there can be a short term loss of weight due to this sweating, most of this weight is immediately regained by re-hydration. But the fats and toxins in the sweat, as much as 15% of the sweat content, are not replaced.
Clinical research has also established that sweating is an energy-intensive process. Extensive sweating can speed up the metabolism, resulting in dramatically increased caloric consumption. Simply put, sweating burns calories, often at very high rates. The metabolism can remain elevated for several hours after a session. So a FIT Bodywrap session can burn calories both during a session and for some time afterward. Repeated FIT Bodywrap sessions can result in weight loss through the combination of burning calories and removing fats and toxins.
As mentioned above, the sweat produced in a FIT Bodywrap session can consist of about 85% water. Compare this to the water content of sweat produced by normal exercise or non-infrared sauna, which is often about 95% water. The difference can be attributed to the fat and toxins that were dissolved through the application of infrared heat and excreted as part of the sweat. FIT Bodywrap’s infrared heat therapy can be effective in removing fats, cholesterol, ammonia, sulfuric acid, nicotine, alcohol, mercury and aluminum. These can be dissolved and removed through sweating and also through normal bodily elimination.
Many of us have used a heating pad to soothe pain and heat has been well documented in the treatment of pain relief. The FIT Bodywrap’s penetrating infrared heat can result in immediate therapeutic benefit through increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation and may also act directly on irritated nerve endings. Clinical research has established that an infrared treatment such as a FIT Bodywrap session can increase blood flow from 5-7 quarts/minute to as much as 13 quarts/minute. A 2008 study found that chronic pain patients experienced a 70% reduction in pain levels after the first infrared therapy session.
Recent clinical observations and studies have produced a large body of observations on the potential beneficial effects of infrared therapy in a broad range of disorders as well as promoting well-being, including:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Anti-aging effects on the skin and other tissues
Acute and chronic soft tissue injuries and repair

Ear candling is safe, simple and natural. Candling involves inserting a beeswax cylindrical candle into the ear and lighting it on the other end. Heat produced from the candle helps to create a vortex that will draw out excess ear wax and other debris which may have accumulated in the ear canal. As it burns down you will hear a lot of cracking and hissing which is the process of removing the wax. The warmth feels soothing and relaxing during the process. Ear Oil is then placed in the ear after candling which will protect from further infections. Benefits of ear candling include helping people with sinus congestion, colds, ear aches and infections, headaches, lymphatic congestion, sore throats, mucus, sinus infections, balance and equilibrium.
Spa Owner, Deanna, brings Western Massage and Eastern Modalities such as: Cupping, Hot & Cold Therapies, Bamboo Muscle Stretching, Trigger Point Release, Gua Shua and Energy Work together. Deanna will use the modalities that are needed for your optimal massage experience and ultimate pain release.
A Signature Day Spa is excited to now be offering Cupping as a wellness massage as seen on Michael Phelps in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Using Silicone Cups, we are able to lift and stretch tendons and muscles at the same time. Cupping works to release trigger points and create a reduction of tightness. Cupping is great for shoulders, legs and the lower back. It also brings much-needed oxygen to the surface of the skin.
The most frequently asked question is about the ‘cup kiss’ that is sometimes left behind. During the massage we work to release the toxins and inflammation left behind by the cups. If you do go home with a ‘cup kiss’ it usually lasts less than a week, but many believe the relief is worth it.
Let Spa Owner, Deanna, do what she does best, intuitively read your body. During the massage Deanna will see what your body and energy has to say. A combination of Eastern and Western modalities may be used, including Reiki, Cupping or Trigger Point Release. The body may lead Deanna to energy blockages caused by past injury, trauma or life stress. This massage will leave you feeling rejuvenated, renewed and surprised at her findings.
