I've received many professional massages before, but this was one of my favorites. Lana did a great job relieving all the knots in my shoulders and back, my troublespots. I feel a lot looser now and less tense, and the experience was very relaxing. Lana was a true professional, and I would highly recommend Esprit Vital to others.

Massage Techniques

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage, also known as classic massage, uses a combination of several different stroke techniques, such as effleurage which are long, smooth, slow strokes, kneading, and friction, to promote deep relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage uses direct, firm pressure and slow strokes to reach beyond the superficial layers into the deeper muscles and connective tissue. This technique is beneficial for relieving severe muscular tension and is recommended for individuals who have consistent pain, chronic injuries or sustain heavy physical activity, such as athletes.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy Massage focuses on helping the physiological, structural, and emotional well being of expecting mothers. During pregnancy, massage provides relief from muscle cramps and spasms, especially in the upper and lower back, hips, and legs. It helps to increase blood and lymphatic circulation which helps to reduce swelling. Most of all, pregnancy massage encourages tranquil relaxation and a renewed sense of body and self for the mother-to-be.

We also offer economical Massage Packages of 4 or 8 sessions to save you money and to make it easier for you to take advantage of regular massage.

Vodder Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)

Vodder Manual Lymph Drainage for the Face and Neck is a gentle, rhythmic, pumping massage that follows the direction of lymph flow to stimulate lymph fluid movement. MLD makes lymph flow faster and accelerates the removal of excess fluid, damaged cells and the by-products of inflammation in the skin. This non-invasive technique has a relaxing and calming effect on the nervous system and a very powerful restorative effect on the body. This procedure has beneficial results for acne, rosacea, pre and post cosmetic surgery, scars, headaches and eczema. In addition, it is also effective for neck muscle strains, colds and congestion. A series of MLD sessions is recommended for optimal results. For more information about the Vodder method, visit
