Astrology Readings:
In addition to understanding your energy as it is now, it is also helpful to have an awareness of the Sun, the Moon, the Nodes, and the stars and how your own astral body relates to all that is flowing around you.  Dana offers a simple natal-chart reading and a basic understanding of what was happening at the time of your birth.  We work in the realm of where you came from, potential karma, and healing opportunities so you can live your best life.

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West. If it's your first massage or you don't get massage very often, Swedish massage would be best suited for you. A Swedish massage uses long flowing effleurage strokes. The pressure is light to medium.

During Swedish massage, massage therapists use massage oils to facilitate smooth, gliding strokes. Other classic Swedish massage moves include kneading, friction, stretching and (sometimes) tapping. Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits.

Sports massage is a type of massage that is specifically tailored to sporting injuries or ailments. It is not meant to be a relaxing massage and, indeed, can become quite vigorous at times. Contrary to its name, sports massage is not only utilized by professional sportspeople or people that exercise heavily. It is of benefit to anyone that exercises, even if it is only mild exercise such as regular walking.

Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands (and even feet).
