Swedish Massage: 30 Minute Massage...$60.00
One Hour Massage...$100.00
1.5 Hour Massage...$140.00
Swedish Massage is a blend of therapeutic techniques that incorporate long, flowing strokes to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and help balance and unify the body, mind, and spirit. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension that may have built up while traveling.
Deep Tissue Massage: 30 Minute Massage...$60.00
One Hour Massage...$100.00
1.5 Hour Massage...$140.00
Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve chronic muscle tension, deep tissue massage finds and works within your pressure comfort level (healing should not hurt); softening the musculature by breaking down scar tissue in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments and removing restrictions from the myofacial system (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) that create holding patterns for injury and pain. Deep Tissue massage also reduces stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.
Sports Massage: One Hour Massage...$100.00
1.5 Hour Massage...$140.00
Sports Massage is geared towards athletes of varying levels, focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Sports massage may be used to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Specifically designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries, and prepares the body and mind for optimal performance.
Couples Massage:One Hour Massage...$200.00
1.5 Hour Massage...$300.00
Couples Massage is a great way for couples to share something special. Bring your partner, or a good friend, and enjoy massages side by side. Choose from any of the above massages for your couples massage experience. *Couples massages are by appointment only and must be scheduled in advance.
Prenatal Massage:$100.00
This is the perfect massage for the expecting mother. Prenatal massage has been proven to be beneficial in reducing anxiety, decreasing back and leg pain, improving sleep and increasing levels of dopamine and serotonin. We use pillows to prop you for comfort while we help ease your tension and sore muscles with a relaxing massage. For the safety of both mother and child, we do not offer prenatal massage during the first trimester. Please consult your physician before scheduling a massage.
Hot Stone Massage:One Hour Massage...$110.00
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth hot stones for placement on the body as well as an extension of their hands throughout the massage. The heated stones allow the muscles to relax more deeply, allowing the therapist to more easily and deeply manipulate the muscles. Although this massage has a deep tissue effect, the massage resembles a swedish massage in pressure. Hot stone is detoxifying and relaxing.
Thai Massage:One Hour Massage...$100.00
1.5 Hour Massage...$150.00
Thai massage, also known as Nuad bo-Rarn, is a type of Asian bodywork therapy that is based on the treatment of the human body, mind and spirit. The origins of Thai massage began over 2,500 years ago. Thai massage combines acupressure, reflexology and assisted yoga poses; working along sen lines to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony. Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and the recipient remains clothed during the treatment. Thai massage can be a spiritual discipline in that it incorporates the practices of mindfulness, through breath and rocking, and a loving kindness through meditation and focussed compassion.
Dani spent six weeks in Thailand this winter where she studied Thai massage. This massage technique has numerous benefits and offers a deep sense of relaxation..

REJUVENATION ANTI-AGING DROPS: A revolutionary formula that aids in both the prevention and reduction of the skin’s aging process. The key ingredient in the anti-aging drops is pea extract, also known as pisum sativum.

Pisum sativum helps to prevent this process by aiding these proteins and slowing down the deterioration process. This solution will tighten the wrinkles on the skin, giving a beautiful, refreshing, younger look to your skin.

SMOOTH & TONE DROPS: A cutting edge formula designed to tone and tighten the skin. This spray tanning additive will attack cellulite where applied. The slimming solution contains a couple of very beneficial ingredients.

Caffeine: this ingredient helps to provide instant skin tightening.

Silicia: very important for maintaining the firmness of the skin.

Full Spectrum Sauna:

Full Specturm Sauna:One Hour...$25.00
Sunlighten Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna

What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for SunlightenTM sauna therapy.

Sunlighten’s Solocarbon infrared technology
is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.

How Safe is Infrared?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Meet Danielle, LMT

My family has been fortunate enough to spend the summers here in the natural beauty of Maine for the past 39 years. Growing up with Acadia National Park as my playground has inspired my love of nature and the outdoors; and I have passed this love along to my own two amazing children. We spend numerous hours hiking in Acadia; I have hiked all of the hiking trails on the island and completed a thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail in the year 2000.

In addition to hiking, I enjoy rock climbing, running, biking, martial arts, water sports, and laughter with family and friends. I attended Wingate University where I received a scholarship to play softball and graduated Cumme Laude with a BA in Psychology. In 2009, I received my Massage Therapy License from the Acadia School of Massage. Massage is a true passion; I feel it keeps me focused and balanced while being therapeutic as well. “Our bodies communicate to us clearly & specifically if we are willing to listen.”
