Samatva Signature Massage
Drawing on the elements of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Massage, Myofascial Release and Trigger Points Therapy, Samatva Signature Massage sessions are tailored to each individual’s needs. The movements are slow and purposeful, with the goal of inducing a deep state of relaxation, while addressing each issue that is important to you.
Intuitively listening and learning how your body responds to the touch, the practitioner slowly works into the muscle layers, always warming up and smoothing out any deep work. By holding and waiting, the therapist enables the fascia to release naturally on its own. This, in combination with hot stones application, gentle rocking motions, trigger points release and arm and leg extensions, will facilitate deep relaxation, loosen your tight muscles, and bring relief to your chronic aches and pains. The end of the session incorporates Indian Head Massage, probably the best head massage you have ever had.
ADD ON OPTION: appts with Mahaya only – $20
The history of cupping dates back as early as 3,000 BC in Egyptian, Greek and Asian cultures where the intention was to affect energy meridians as well as physical structures.The modern day adaptation of Myofascial Cupping is where a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced by suctioning out air, so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle and therefore a more broad release.
Most manual massage therapy techniques involve positive pressure of pushing into the body, however Myofascial Cupping is unique in that negative pressure is the means for changing tissue adhesions. Though the skin may be temporarily discolored by red rings or hickey-like marks from the suction in the cup, this is not the intention of the therapy and therefore the success of the treatment is not gauged in this way.

Comments about our treatments
I have struggled with so much pain and stress these past 8 years, got no useful help from doctors, am so very blessed to have found compassionate bodyworkers like Jonathan. His mix of Thai Massage, Systema, personal training, yoga, and meditation has helped me in deep ways. I have been seeing Jonathan for several years now, for personal training, Systema training, yoga nidra instruction etc. These past weeks of Thai Massage at Samatva have brought deep healing and insight to both of us. Jonathan is blessedly open to how healing flows both ways between therapist and client. (I have never had success with doctors or therapists who think of themselves as being “in charge”, who think of healing as something that has to flow one-way from them to me.)
Ah me, the flickering words of email are totally inadequate for describing this. Many blessings to you and all of Samatva.
This massage was like nothing I’ve experienced before. Mahaya’s obvious competence, combined with her unique use of a variety of therapeutic techniques, left me feeling completely rejuvenated. Her care and concern were apparent at every moment. Whether you are looking for a massage which is deeply relaxing, yet invigorating, or are seeking to work on a deeper level, I would highly recommend this treatment.

I just had the Ayurvedic head massage with Carrie…(which by the way includes the back, arms & upper chest areas) – and I am in pure bliss. You are a natural at this – and with the Reiki flowing too; it was amazing. Thank you so much!!!! I just LOVE you!
I have had the good fortune of being able to visit one of the world’s best spas on the “healing island” of Koh Samui in Thailand. This spa obtained it’s world standing because the treatments received are full of love, care and concern. This is how I would describe Mahaya’s treatments. I was amazed to find that I could have obtained here in Kingston that which I had otherwise travelled so far to obtain; a massage treatment so full of love, care and concern that I left feeling special, indulged, pampered and elated. Thank you Mahaya.
Hands-down the BEST massage I have ever had!! Not only did my body feel wonderful afterwards, but my mind was calm and settled. Mahaya seemed to know exactly what I needed in each moment, and with the perfect amount of pressure for each area. Her ability to guide my busy mind into mindfulness was amazing. The ambiance of the environment put me at ease right away, and the heated table was a huge bonus for me! I really liked the variety of techniques she used and how easily she transferred between them. She exudes peace with her kind and caring nature. She is a gem and I am looking forward to my next session. Thank you Mahaya!!

Thank you for your amazing massage! You were able to put me into a state of bliss – way beyond just relaxation. I could feel the loving concern in your treatment, and had to force myself to stay awake so that I wouldn’t miss any moment of the experience. I really like the hot rocks, and especially the way your strokes are powerful but not painful. I look forward to many more treatments with you. Thank you so much!
