Kripalu-style Ayurvedic Bodywork Services
Ayurvedic Bodywork is the embodiment of ancient wisdom through massage. These offerings truly transform and feel incredibly luxurious. We are all manifestations of Nature’s Elements: Water, Air, Earth, Fire, and Space. Ayurveda wisdom knows you were born with the perfect balance of these elements to form your unique constitution. Seasons, age, stress, and environment can create excess or deficiency in the elements and throw us out of balance. Ayurvedic massage restores balance and considers your elemental constitution to nurture long lasting change. Abhyanga promotes vitality and balances the muscular system through medicated oils and vigorous movements along energy pathways and Marma points. Marma points are sites that collect pain when unbalanced. Garshana uses raw silk to gently and effectively remove collections in the lymph system. Vedic-Thai Yoga Massage is simply healing touch through assisted stretching and yoga. A sequence of supported movement and rhythmic massage stimulate the layers of consciousness, releasing blockages held in the energetic pathways and Marma points.
Ayurvedic Massage and Skin Brushing (Abhyanga and Garshana)
Transport your senses into an ancient healing experience. The treatment begins with raw silk glove exfoliation stimulating lymphatic circulation and deeply cleansing the skin. Next you receive massage with specially prepared aroma-therapeutic oils, enhancing the ability of nutrients to reach starved cells and allowing for the removal of stagnant waste. The desired result is a heightened state of awareness that will direct the internal healing system of the body. Hot towel wipe down removing excess oil along with 10 minutes of rest on the Far-Infrared Bio-Mat complete this healing experience. Good for soothing chronic stress, life’s tricky transitions or grief from loss. Vata pacifying.
90 min session: $139.00
Ayurvedic Deep Muscle Massage (Vishesh)
Let your tension and stiff muscles melt with the rhythmic movement of Vishesh. Ayurvedic massage works with the process of oleation, using the intelligence of dosha-balancing, aroma-therapeutic oils to move stagnation or dullness. Vishesh is a deep muscular massage that breaks up adhesions in the muscle spindles. When certain channels get blocked, then neither awareness or blood can reach deeply seated tissues. Vishesh focuses primarily on the physical body or annamaya kosha, assisting the body to remove cellular waste and environmental toxins caught in the tissues. This massage is good for balancing Kapha and Pitta dosha. Hot towel wipe down and resting on the Bio-Mat complete the session.
75 min session: $119.00
Ayurvedic Bliss Therapy (Shirodhara and Marma-Balancing)
The imbalance of excess Vata or wind, creates over-stimulation and swarming thoughts, the mind can’t slow down. Therefore the body gets agitated resulting in an inability to handle the effects of chronic stress. Shirodhara is a specific treatment for the side-effects of stress: insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and psychological disorders. Through addressing the manomaya kosha, this procedure synchronizes brain waves and calms the mind, body, spirit and breath. Shirodhara enhances blood circulation to the brain, improves memory, nourishes the hair and scalp and generally aids in the release of stress and nervous tension. Shirodhara is a deeply relaxing treatment using warm aroma-therapeutic oil poured in a gentle stream over the forehead. To maximize the benefits schedule this treatment at a time when you will be able to rest and relax for some time afterwards. Marma Balancing is a gentle, energy balancing treatment that works on special energy points in the body, called Marmas. It is meant to balance and awaken consciousness and natural flow of the life force energy. It is a perfect preparation for receiving the full benefits of Shirodhara. This is a powerful way to address the causes of chronic stress, mental or hormonal imbalance.

Assisted Yoga-Massage and Marma Balancing
Is your body experiencing pain or discomfort from constant wear and tear? Does your body feel beat up and run down? Do you hear yourself saying “I’m falling apart” or “My hips are always tight”? Vedic-Thai Yoga Massage is for you! It is done on a futon fully clothed where you get the best of massage and yoga. Using the wisdom of Ayurveda and passive yoga postures, you LET GO of the chronically tight muscles and invite circulation back into tendons and ligaments. The body is compressed, rocked, pulled, and stretched in order to clear energy blockages and remove tension. The results improve energy, increase flexibility and reduce fatigue. Marma points are intersections where tissues meet and contain vital life force energy. These points are where consciousness meets matter. Each site is thought to contain the Ayurveda trinity: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Focusing massage at these points cleanses blocked energy and revitalizes the entire body. Receiving a session supports your efforts to achieve balance and prevent physical and emotional discomfort.
75 min session: $108.00
Precision Massage Services
Precision Massage reflects the proficient skill and medical intuition that are required to give an excellent muscle-specific massage. These selections offer the wisdom of personalized treatment. Your massage will be tailored for your session goals. Hillery integrates many bodywork techniques to address your needs: Muscle-specific deep tissue, Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Cranio-sacral, Infrared Therapy and Hot and Cold Stone Therapy.
Observing postural balance, locating sites of accumulation, and taking joints through passive range of movement are part of the assessment process. If it’s your first appointment, I will ask questions to understand what you do with your body that contributes to postural stress, occupational overuse, mental overload, along with digestion and sleep rhythms. My deep tissue massage does not mean extreme pressure and pain. It does not take force in order for the body to release tension, it takes a relaxed state and conscious breathing. This recipe requires innovation and proper knowledge of muscle groups and their inter-relationships. Often people are surprised that so much of the pain they experience is echoed in other parts of the body, discovering that everything is related.
Hillery integrates many bodywork techniques to address your needs: Muscle-specific deep tissue, Classic Swedish Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Cranio-sacral, Table Vedic-Thai stretching, Infrared Therapy and Hot and Cold Stone Therapy.

My specialized training in prenatal support has informed my approach for what helps both Mom and Baby related to massage. In Ayurveda, we consider the movement of Apana Vayu in relation to preparing for birth. It is the downward moving energy that helps give birth. Disturbing that energy in the first or third trimester, is not recommended. This massage is for second trimester only. I recommend the stillness of Jin Shin Jyutsu for first and third trimester.
Postural support for pregnancy is essential. Proper placement on the table helps Mom relax and makes sure that baby wont place pressure on the Vena Cava. My electric massage table positions the head and shoulders at a comfortable angle with the right side of the pelvis tilted up. Mom is also positioned on her side for shoulder mobility and gentle chest stretches. Attention towards counter-balancing the forward postural pull is the focus. Opening the chest, releasing sore shoulders, and tight upper arms. Many Moms need a good, solid foot massage that stays clear of acupressure points contraindicated for pregnancy.
Foot pain relief, pelvic balancing, joint mobility and compression are all integrated with the focus of Mom achieving deep relaxation so her energy reserves can be replenished. Most mothers agree that supporting their pregnancy with massage brought the benefits of less pain and fatigue as well as mellow babies!

Light Touch Healing
Light Touch Healing balances the nervous system by bringing the body, mind, spirit and breath into harmony. These methods treat energy blockages that come from anxiety, emotional trauma or limited core values. By engaging your imagination and participation, Jin Shin Jyustu and Alchmical Healing create a therapeutic alliance bringing change on deep and subtle levels.
Jin Shin Jyutsu
Affectionately known as a “Tune-Up”, Jin Shin is the elixir for getting to the source of our dis-ease. We all have that spot where we carry our stress: neck, shoulders, shoulder blades, back. Commonalities among these sites of pain show us that these are bottle necks in our super highway of invisible pathways. Internal and invisible energy intersecting and getting jammed up. Our body is full of inner pathways designed to nourish and sustain energy. Energy informs matter. The physical is actually the energetic manifesting in health or disease. Why not approach the source instead of the symptom? The ancient art of Jin Shin Jyutsu uses these pathways to balance mind, body, spirit, and breath. The practitioner uses her hands as “jumper cables” to hold specific areas on the body. A simple and gentle process, it allows the receiver to relax and the energy will begin flowing. Alpha and Beta states of deep relaxation are easily experienced with this profound healing art. Jin Shin helps to keep the body free of dis-ease; it decreases stress, helps change our focus, relieves pain and alleviates acute and chronic conditions. Hillery focuses suggests keeping this in your self-caring plan rotation. It is particularly helpful for supporting all stages of pregnancy, surgery preparation and recovery, injury prevention and treatment, TMJ, End of Life, Chronic illness, Severe stress and trauma recovery.

Infrared Sauna Sessions *Coming back Soon!
The FDA agrees that FIR provides temporary relief from muscular pain including symptoms from arthritis, muscle spasms, sprains and strains. Hillery’s interest in providing the service is deeper than pain relief; She believes the deep cellular detoxification is where healing happens. Sitting in the sauna with meditative music and color-light therapy is super relaxing and transformative. The skin is purified through increased circulation; your metabolic function increases along with boosting immune system’s response; and your blood pressure harmonizes. The fatigue from environmental toxins is released and you feel refreshed. I see clients relax and release muscular tension when they begin their massage sessions with Far-Infrared (FIR) therapy.
