In addition, the massage gazebo can accommodate side-by-side couple massage treatments.

Customize your treatment by selecting from various styles and techniques of massage including relaxation, deep tissue, hot stones, myofascial release, and energy balancing/integrative treatments.  Each massage therapist has been given our highest endorsement, as well as having been certified and licensed in massage therapy by the State of Arizona.
