ayurvedic indian head, hand & foot massage

60 min $75 | 90 min $90

SPECIAL 60 min $50 | booked with carrie only


Indian Head, Hand and Foot Massage is a very grounding, balancing and restorative type of bodywork. The whole session is done while you are lying on a massage table facing up. At your choice, you can be either fully clothed or undressed down to your waist and covered with a blanket.

The session starts by using firm and gentle rhythmic movements to clear years of built-up tension in the head, neck, shoulders and arms. This rather vigorous part of the session is followed by soothing pressure point work on your head, hands and feet with the goal of stimulating nerve endings in those areas to release energy, relax muscles and encourage the body to naturally restore its own healthy balance. In addition, grounding hot stones and hot towels applications are used in this extremely nurturing session to deepen the therapeutic effect.

thai yoga massage

60 min $75 | 90 min $90


Centuries ago, a dynamic bodywork therapy based on yoga and Ayurveda was born in the temples of Thailand. In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage – also called Nuad Boran and widely known as traditional Thai massage – the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (“Sen”) lines and pressures points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.

Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility. No oils or creams are used.

chakra balancing

45 min $60


When our chakras are out of balance or blocked, we ourselves feel lethargic, ill, and/or ‘out of sorts’. Each chakra is connected to the body and soul in different ways (please see chart). When we are holding in emotions, or experiencing physical or mental discomfort, making sure your chakras are clear and flowing freely, will help us feel like ourselves again.

The patient will be fully clothed on the table, laying on their backs. During which various energy therapies can be used as well as the help of Crystals, Pendulums, a technique called blowing and smudging of sage/herbs. The practitioner will either hover over each chakra, or use a light touch of the hands. The energy may feel warm, cool, and/or tingly, depending on how the client takes on the energy. In result, you will bee more clear, light, and peaceful.

reiki

60 min $75 | 90 min $90


Reiki is a Japanese healing and relaxation technique that has been practiced in Japan for many years. It was introduced to North America in the 1940s. It is a non-invasive and holistic therapy that brings balance to mind, body, and spirit. This balance strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal and supports general wellbeing. Reiki is currently used in hospitals and clinics worldwide to facilitate relaxation and recovery, decrease anxiety, and provide relief for physical pain. Other benefits, such as the alleviation of symptoms of depression, and improved concentration, memory and communication skills, vary from person to person. Reiki is practiced on a massage table by placing hands in specific positions on or above the body. Recipients of Reiki commonly report having a greater sense of wellbeing, improved sleep and digestion, and overall stress reduction.

samatva spirit massage

60 min $75 | 90 min $90


Spirit Massage is based on a very soothing approach of Shiatsu and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage and focuses on integration of mind, body and spirit. The body is worked as a whole. Not only is a physical connection made, but an energetic connection between therapist and client and often a spiritual connection between a client and themselves.

Pure essential oils, hot stones, guided visualization, energy work and shiatsu-like intuitive pressure points are incorporated into the continuous flow of this massage to relax your body and calm the mind, leading to a profoundly peaceful state of expanded awareness and of mental clarity for a deep emotional healing.

A very intuitive, healing session, resulting in real and immediate benefits. You’ll feel better physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

samatva signature massage

60 min $75 | 90 min $90


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.

hot stone

60 min $75 | 90 min $90


Hot stone massage is a treat. It induces a deeply relaxed, blissed-out and meditative state.

Each stone is worked in turn with my hands along your body to relax the tight muscles and balance your energy. The warm, oiled stones are also placed on multiple acupressure points around your body. This experience is so blissful that you may drift off into a dreamy state and lose track of where the hot stones are arranged.

Don’t be afraid to tell me if the stones are too warm for you. You’ll relax much more quickly and start enjoying that delicious feeling of total well-being if you’re comfortable. Enjoy the after glow — float slowly back to the real world and re-hydrate your body by sipping plenty of water.

foot reflexology


Reflexology is a natural healing art, based on the principal that there are reflexes on the head, hands and feet that directly correspond with glands, organs and parts of the body. During the treatment, I use my thumb and fingers to stimulate reflex areas on your feet to trigger physiological changes that empower your body to heal itself.

Working on many levels, it is a deeply relaxing therapy that stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems, encouraging your body to release toxins and improving your immune system.

If desired, Reiki and guided visualization can be incorporated into the session to cleanse and restore your energy centers, known as chakras, all while re-aligning you to your true authentic Self.

Yoga is an essential part of my life. Yoga asanas in combination with breathing exercises allow me to really feel what is going on in my body, rather than being habitually lost in the stories of my mind. It allows me to tap into a deeper part of myself, the place of true calm power and intuitive knowing. The place of connection, where the whole life is experienced as an amazing exploration and a rare opportunity to express and share with the rest of the world all that unique beauty that resides within each one of us. I am also a trained holistic bodywork practitioner and I am delighted to offer my bodywork services here at Samatva.

Ahhh, this fine craft...my love affair with breath and movement began as a toddler, and it took form as an uncontrollable desire to swing, sway, dip, dive and lengthen. From the age of three on i was graced with a natural innate sort of discipline to study the body and its capabilities through classical ballet mostly, and many other styles of dance... but, ballet was my love. I danced, I studied, I traveled and I taught...this at 15 yrs old revealed the natural teacher in me, and so I became a dance teacher! Movement connected me to my soul, this was very clear, so again very naturally at 18yrs i began sitting with myself, meditating i'd guess you'd call it...i felt i needed it, and it interested me...and it worked! In very tiny doses it too showed me another way of feeling whole and alive, like dancing had done. On my own, in the country i began to incorporate some yoga postures into my days and i found myself at dance auditions going off into a corner to do Tree and Triangle and breathe deep to calm and prepare myself. I fell in love with this tool and felt it to be such a gift. By accident i stumbled on a teacher in Kingston who offered training and without question i emptied my bank account and learned! Since that day almost 10 years ago i have been leading classes that are based in and for "YOU" the student, in hopes that you too catch a fleeting or long lasting moment of joy, connection, spirit, or simply a love for extension, movement or stillness. Deep roots, foundation and a lot of love, Namaste
