Kinds of Therapy:
Below are some of the Kinds of therapeutic, medical and manual therapy massage we offer as well as situations and suggestions we have on fitting massage into a vacation or life schedule!
Our signature therapeutic massage is a combination of techniques designed to achieve or exceed the goals you have for your therapy session. We ask you what brings you into our office, briefly what your medical history is, what kind of massage or pressure you prefer and then we design a massage specifically for your situation using a wide selection of styles and types of massage that we do.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, light-touch method of evaluating and enhancing the craniosacral system, the environment in which the brain and spinal cord function. An imbalance or dysfunction in the craniosacral system can cause sensory, motor or neurological disabilities and central nervous system disorders. These problems may include chronic pain, eye difficulties, scoliosis, headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, chronic fatigue, motor-coordination impairments and learning disabilities, as well as other physical and psychological problems. The therapy has been successfully used to treat these problems since the 1980's, and Robin has been doing this therapy since 1985. This modality can be done with loose-fitting clothing on.

We offer Pregnancy Massage and Craniosacral Therapy for new mothers after the 1st Trimester to increase a mother’s energy levels, reduce anemia, improve lymphatic circulation, reduce stress and promote relaxation, relieve back, hip, leg and feet stress, and improve the outcome of labor.

Book an hour or two hour massage and split it between you. No waiting between appointments. When we have several therapists on staff in the summer, we can sometimes offer couples the luxury of having a massage at the same time! Minimum one hour per couple in our office or one and one-half hour per couple at your location.
A wedding is a joyous occasion but also a very stressful one. Let go of the months and weeks of planning-stress with a relaxing massage. Our therapist can travel to your honeymoon suite, or if you prefer, you may come to our office.

Our experience lets your people get just the right therapy they need to relax or function better! Email or call for Corporate rates and availability.
Fly or drive most of the day to get to Bar Harbor? How about an early dinner, an evening Therapeutic Massage for those neck knots and back stiffness so you get a good night's sleep and start your first full day on the Island refreshed?
We can send a Therapist to your hotel early on your first vacation day to help you get rid of that travel or work-related stress so you can get your vacation off to a great start! Let the early riser go first, and someone gets to sleep an extra hour or have breakfast downstairs! Then you are both on your way for the day.
Ready for an extended lunch-break after an early rise, and a 20 mile bike ride, tough hike, shopping or a kayak trip? Take a break from the heat of a summer's day - you can even ride your bike or car right off the Park Loop Road a few blocks to our air-conditioned office. Let our Massage Therapist work out the tight spots in your quads and neck, have a leisurely lunch and go out and bike or explore the other side of the island 'til sundown!
After Breakfast, bike, hike, or drive over to our office for an early morning appointment, and be on your way for the day's activities; whale watching, canoeing, shopping, or driving the Park Loop Road.
Does vacation mean sleeping late? How about a late morning or early afternoon Therapeutic Massage at your hotel or our air-conditioned office. Then you can leisurely stroll through Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park, do some shopping before dinner and a sunset sail on Frenchman Bay, or a scenic drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain to see the sun set!
Long, Hard Day!
Planning to play hard all day taking in all Acadia National Park has to offer? Sailing, an all day kayak trip, biking around the carriage roads, or hiking up Cadillac Mountain? Come in at the end of the day for a Therapeutic Massage before a later dinner..... Or catch the early bird restaurant specials followed by an early evening Therapeutic Massage. Next day, you will be glad you planned ahead!
Stressed to the Max
Have a stressful job/life? Did you know that accumulated stress can shave years off your life, and that Therapeutic Massage is one of the best methods to combat stress? Use your vacation to get your body back on track, letting go of chronic tension. Come in for an hour and a half or two hour massage at least once, or daily or every other day if you can make that commitment. Relax to soothing music with warm packs and aromatherapy oils to lower your anxiety level, and de-stress overly tense muscles in the neck, head, jaw and back.
