muscle & joint relief
Deep Moore Essence Masque
Prized for its natural healing ability, Moor Essence can help to improve circulation, soothe aching muscles, and reduce swelling in joints. High proportions of humic acids may enable the Moor to draw and absorb harmful substances that may be trapped in the tissues, as well as cause an exchange reaction in which inflammation-producing positive ions in the tissues are replaced by revitalizing negative ions present within the Moor. In this treatment, the Deep Moor Mud is generously applied to the treatment area and then wrapped with plastic to drive the product deeper into the tissue, thereby increasing the effectiveness.
Deep Relief Mineral Mud Compress
Our signature therapeutic compress treatment begins with stimulation of blood flow and lymphatic fluid using a percussion instrument at a setting that is comfortable to you. Next, a cream is applied to soothe muscles in need of comfort and support, as well as providing pain relief for arthritic joints. Then, a layer of anti-inflammatory Deep Moor mud is applied and layered with warm towels that have been infused with essential oils and mineral salt. As this compress rests, the natural healing ingredients work together to provide a simultaneously warming and cooling effect that further calms joints and muscles. After a brief rest, allowing the products time to absorb for optimal benefit, the towels and mud are removed. Now that circulation has been increased, inflammation has been eased out, and the soft tissues have been prepared for deeper work, attention is given to releasing the outer layers of fascia. Finally, a specially formulated myofascial cream, containing MSM, Arnica, Boswellia, and ILEX, is massaged into the muscles for maximum therapeutic benefit.
Note: Available with a 60- or 90-minute massage. The compress can be applied to the shoulder, elbow, hand/wrist, abdomen, foot/ankle, back, knee, or calf. If treating more than one area, such as both knees, please book the longer session.
Hot Towels and Arnica Oil
At the end of the treatment, compression massage will be done with hot towels infused with mineral salts and essential oils. Then, a nourishing arnica joint and muscle oil blend will be used - the perfect solution to soothe tired, overworked muscles or after dealing with a stressful day in the office.

Just You Sessions
By request, we've added some unique "just you" offerings to our service list. Sometimes it can be hard to achieve perfect peace and relaxation when at home. A spa treatment, whether therapeutic or relaxing, can definitely help with that, but these 15-minute sessions take it a step further. This time is just for you to enjoy alone - that's right, all by yourself. The dim lighting and tranquil music set the mood. As you lay on the heated treatment table, specially designed bolsters take pressure off the neck and back, while a weighted blanket provides gentle pressure, like a warm hug, that helps to calm the mind and body, creating an ease in stress and pain. During the Sleep After session, you have your choice of the weighted blanket or a KryoMat for inflammation-reducing cold therapy.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries. When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain. Essential oils can also be absorbed by the skin and can help relax tight muscles during a massage.
