BB Signature Massage
The Blue Buddha Signature Massage is exceptionally unique and specifically tailored to each individual client. Depending on your preference, the function of the massage can vary from relaxing to therapeutic. Soft relaxing music, a warm table and long full body Swedish strokes could be used to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system allowing your mind and body to slip into a deep state of relaxation. Or, if you prefer a therapeutic style of massage, several technical modalities including Thai, gua sha, cupping and deep tissue techniques will be used to meet your needs. Of course, a combination of the two is the best of both worlds!

Inspired by Eastern massage techniques, Ashiatsu ("Ashi"=foot, "atsu"=pressure) is an effective treatment for chronic neck and back pain recognized by the American Massage Therapy Association. The technique is performed on a massage table. The therapist supports herself using wooden bars suspended from the ceiling and applies deep foot pressure to strategic points along the spine and body for maximum muscle compression. If you like deep massage, you will LOVE this exotic treatment!

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This approach emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease. The goal is to release adhesions throughout the crania sacral system. This encourages the flow of cerebral spinal fluid, bringing nourishment to the brain and spinal cord—the base of our nervous system. Great for headaches, fibromyalgia, sports injuries & emotional trama.

Cupping is an ancient therapy that was developed to decrease pain while increasing circulation and energy. Cupping is performed as part of our signature massage and is done as a treatment for a problem area. Cupping marks are left on the skin by the suction of the cup pulling toxins to the surface of the body. These marks are minimal, not painful and they fade quickly.
