**** 4 Stars: Visiting Darcy’s office was a pleasure. She was very friendly, addressed all of my concerns, and gave off a very positive vibe! The reflexology treatment was great, and the aromatherapy and peppermint scrub were great additions to the service. – Krysta M via Facebook
Aromatherapy – The art and science of using 100% essential oils derived from plants, herbs, and flowers to promote relaxation, reduce anxiety and support wellness – naturally enhances the benefits of massage. The essential oils can be added to the massage oil or lotion and massaged into the skin. They can also be inhaled directly or through a diffuser. When inhaled, they work on the brain and nervous system through stimulation of the olfactory nerves for psychological and physical well-being.
Lavender oil is known for its relaxation-inducing properties. Often used in bath oils and sleep pillows, lavender has a sweet, floral aroma that both is soothing and refreshing. Lavender oil is great for winding down during a massage.
Before your session begins, you can choose with your therapist’s help a customized blend or single note 100% essential oil to be added to your massage lotion during your session. A variety of essential oils are available including Clary Sage, Neroli, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Bergamot, Peppermint, Cypress and Tea Tree.
Enhance your next massage session with soothing aromatherapy for only $5.00 additional charge.

More than a foot rub, Reflexology relaxes the entire body to a deep level which helps supports the body’s natural inclination to heal. Reflexology is the ancient practice of applying pressure with the thumb and fingers to specific parts of the feet based on the philosophy that there are points on the feet that connect to every part of the body. Some reflexologists also work with the hands and the ears.
A reflexology treatment is deeply relaxing and helps to reduce stress, relieve pain, increase lymphatic flow, and enhance well-being. The philosophy says that by treating these reflex points on the foot, corresponding organs are stimulated and receive benefit. Reflexology is a great way to target organs and glands that may not be massaged directly. People of all ages and health conditions may benefit from reflexology treatments.
Aches and pains are a part of daily life and reflexology has a long history of promoting relaxation and healing. With sessions ranging from 15 minutes to one hour, reflexology may be added onto a massage session or used as a stand-alone treatment. A peppermint foot scrub or aromatherapy may also be combined with your treatment, if desired.
