Custom Table Massage
During every session, I’ll determine the best technique (or combination of techniques) to fit your specific needs and comfort level. Some of the techniques which I may incorporate into your session are: Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Myofascial (connective-tissue) Release Technique*.
30-Minutes = $45.00
45-Minutes = $60.00
60-Minutes = $75.00
75-Minutes = $90.00
90-Minutes = $105.00
A therapeutic massage session with the needs of the expectant mom in mind. As with all of my massages, your session will be crafted around any issues or discomfort you may be experiencing. The Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques you know and love are still included but are modified slightly to allow for mom’s safety and comfort. For example, lots of pillows are provided to allow Mom to lie comfortably on her side instead of her stomach, table-warmers are turned off, and exclusively organic, unscented oils/lotions are used. Several key acupressure points are also avoided during pregnancy.
Pregnancy massage is generally recommended for the second and third trimesters only. However, it is safe to have massage right up to (and sometimes even during!) your labor.
Hot Stone Massage
Smooth basalt stones are heated to a comfortable temperature and placed on strategic areas of the body to soothe and relax. A full body massage is then performed using hands as well as warm stones, to soothe away muscle tension and stress.
Because the hot stone massage is often performed in spas as a very gentle and relaxing technique, many are surprised to learn that it can also be incorporated into deeper therapeutic work, using heat to sink into seemingly impenetrable muscles. As with all of Martha’s massages, she will talk with you beforehand to find the level of pressure that works best for you.
75-Minutes = $110.00
90-Minutes = $125.00
- Due to the extensive amount of time required to set-up and sanitize the stones, Martha does not perform hot stone massages of less than 75-Minutes.
- Hot stone massage is not for those with high blood pressure, cardio-vascular issues, or who may be pregnant.

*Although the word “fascia” appears somewhat similar to the word “facial”, it is not related to the face. Myofascia is a type of connective tissue which surrounds the muscles throughout the body. Martha does not perform facials, but would be happy to refer you to a fantastic local aesthicisan.
