Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. $5 discount for RiverPlex members & OSF employees.

Step #1: Stress Management (Balance & Lavander) To put you in a relaxed state.
Step #2: Immune Support (Melaleuca & OnGuard) High stress levels lead to weakened immune system - these oils have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal properties that are important to immune support.
Step #3: Inflammatory Response (AromaTouch & Deep Blue) These blends support healthy inflammatory responses in the body. They also provide relief to muscle aches, tension and spasms.
Step #4: Homeostasis (Wild Orange & Peppermint) High stress levels, low immune support and high inflammation leads to imbalance of the body.
