Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Deep Tissue
Releases tension in the deeper layers of the muscles, it also relieves tenderness and fatigue associated with stress, and promotes healthy muscles. Healthy muscles can prevent injuries. Different techniques will be customized to suit your individual needs.
Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stones are placed at key points around your body, and used as massage tools with essential oils to help promote deep relaxation and balance. You can choose soft or deep tissue work. Truly a great experience...
Sports Massage
A Sports massage is ideal to treat injuries and as well as a preventative treatment dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture. I further define my role as ‘the manipulation of soft tissue to release tension, reduce pain, restore range of movement and promote good condition'. This is achieved through a range of techniques I possess and carry around in my ‘tool bag', some of which are effective on some people, some of which are not. It is then down to me to work with my clients to find the right tools to unravel their current injury situation or assist them with their training program. Essentially the ‘manipulation of soft tissue' in my books means moving muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue around in a range of ways to achieve the desired effect.
Swedish
Passive, long and rhythmic strokes are used to stimulate circulation, calming the mind and soothing the nerves. Choose light or firm touch.
Pregnancy
A special massage created exclusively to relieve those particular aches and pains associated with weight-bearing tension and fatigue. It also noticeably reduces swelling.
Other
+++Cupping Therapy --- Cupping therapy is used in traditional Chinese medicine to release congestion. Cups are placed on the skin and a suction gun is used to create vacuum inside the cups. Leaving the cups on the skin for a few minutes will turn the skin red. This is an indication that circulation has been brought to the surface. The suction will increase blood flow and will release rigid soft tissues and muscles.
Massage modalities
- Swedish Relaxation Massage - Deep Tissue Therapeutic - Pregnancy Massage - Lymphatic Drainage Massage - Cupping Massage Therapy - Hot Stone Massage - Warm Bamboo Massage - MyoFascial Release - Reiki - Acupressure - PNF Stretching - Cranial-sacral hold
Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic drainage activates the lymph flow so your body is cleansed of its toxins. Additional detoxifying benefits include a strengthened immune system, reduced swelling, and combating cellulite. The best results are reached if therapy is performed in a series. Also, discounts are given for purchasing a series.

Irena understood what I needed from my visit. She is very gifted with wonderful strength to work out any cramps. She used Himalayan Salt, Hot Stones and Cupping which really loosened up my back muscles so much so, I returned the next day for more. She is very accommodating to your needs. Her set up is very private. I visited her both with a morning appt as well as an afternoon appt and both times the room was quite and peaceful. I highly recommend her and cannot wait to visit again.

I felt welcomed as I was warmly greeted at the door. Irena asked a few questions and clearly read through my information before I was there so she could understand what I was looking for and what would be best for me. During the massage she explained what was happening and continually inquired about my comfort. I highly recommend Irena and am truly happy I found a great massage therapist.

Irena has the "healing touch!" Her technique is soothing & relaxing, and more effective than I even knew. After my 60 minute prenatal massage, I went home and took a 2 1/2 hour nap that felt amazing after countless nights of insomnia. I made sure to book my next appointment before I left!

I loved the mix of therapies and I think it's what I need to get these knots out. Irena is informative, explained the different therapies and their benefits before or while she was performing them. She also was mindful and checked in to make sure the pressure was good. The only thing about the ambiance is that there is a cultural center next door and some times they might have some audible activities going on. It wasn't a huge deal for me, but something to note about the location.

I loved irena' scamming energy, and how she customized the massage to my bodies needs. Everything she did felt amazing, including the cupping which was very effective. I normally have cold feet all the time, and I noticed that after the massage , my feet were warm which means her healing hands improved my circulation. She was amazing and is truly gifted.

My son who plays high school football had been complaining of back pain and the doctor just wanted to give him muscle relaxers which I'm not okay with. He went to a chiro for about a week and it helped temporarily for that day so I searched for someone in the area for a massage and found her... I can't even begin to say enough about her. She's beyond Amazing!!!! She responded quickly to schedule appointment and emailed over paperwork. She recommended what type of massage for him due to the lower back pain. She also took the time to email me to check on him and his experience. She definatley goes the extra mile to make sure her clients are taken care of. We will defiantley be using her again and would highly highly recommend her. She knows exactly what she's doing and my son is feeling sooo much better.

When I first pulled up I wasn't that impressed with the exterior, but as soon as I stepped inside I felt so at ease from the cleanliness and comforting decor. The room was so spacious not at all like walking into a closet as I've experienced at other massage parlors. Professionalism was noticed right from the original phone call to me walking in and being greeted by her. Magic hands and fingers is all I can say. I'll be returning.

Well needed after a move across country. Relaxing but enough to loosen tense muscles. Loved the warm himalayan salt. Looking forward to my next appointment!

I just love Irena! She listens to what I have going on and adjusts her massage techniques to exactly what I need. I always feel better after a massage from Irena :)

I loved my massage. Soothing and relaxing- I was on cloud nine. I loved the hot stones and walked away yearning for more. I will definitely be spreading the word about Irena's expertise and skill.

She was amazing, so sweet and professional. The place was very relaxing and quiet. Offers tea/water before and after your session. I've had massages where the therapist was chit chatting the whole time which makes it hard for me to really relax. Irena asked about the pressure she applied, then later we discussed for a short minute or two about stress in the upper area of my back. Maybe 3mins of talking out of the hour. After the session, she gave me a little advice and then also sent me information on how to help myself. I definitely pre-booked another appointment with her. :)

I loved the Hot Copper stones accompanied with the aromatherapy oils. The pink Himalayan sea salt felt so amazing on my back. Once we got to the cupping I could feel the tension being squeezed out of my muscles. One of the best massages I've ever had!

Fantastic therapist who is talented, insightful, and professional. You will get a lot of bang for your buck here! It's one of the highest quality massages I've ever had- I'll certainly be back. Don't waste your money going somewhere else! Healing w/ Bamboo and Stones is superior in all ways.

I have fibromyalgia and have been very wary of massage therapist due to past bad experiences. My pain is often very bad and widespread, and I am extremely sensitive to any pressure, however my doctor recommended massage therapy. Irena is a definitely a special person. She is able to work on my body without causing more pain, but still affecting improvement. She is trained in so many different massage methods and modalities that she is able to custom the massage to each person's individual needs. I have referred 2 friends with chronic pain to her and they both love her too. She often will use modalities that other spas will up-charge for because she is compassionate and truly care about each client's well being. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone with chronic pain.

This was my first time getting a massage with Irena. I was pleasantly surprised (I've had some ho-hum massages in my day). She was extremely competent and personable. Caring but not overly effusive. She is clearly experienced and knows what she is doing.

Irena is awesome, I found her at another salon and basically only went there because of here. She has magical hands, is really up to date on modalities, includes a lot with her standard massages other salons up charge for, has very reosonable prices, but most importantly I always feel light as a feather when I have a session with her. I recently called the other place to book and found out she was gone, took me a few weeks to find her but glad I did and she is even closer to my home (bonus)! I recently sent her two close friends who were in need of some de-stressing and she did wonders for both. I highly recommend her.
