Massage therapy is a natural method for healing and restoring the body. The expertly trained massage therapists at K.West use their hands to work your muscles, release the stress and tension held within the body, and bring relief and relaxation to every client. Massage is customized to your needs, whether you would be best-served with massage focus in one area of the body, whole-body massage, or a specialized form of massage.
We are pleased to offer massage therapies at our Ann Arbor skincare studio from respected therapist Michaela Phan. Contact K.West directly to schedule your massage with our talented professionals.
75 minutes $100 / 90 minutes $130 / 120 minutes $185
Every person’s body has different needs that can vary from one massage session to another. Instead of scheduling one type of massage each time you see a therapist, you will see bigger benefits from intuitive massage.
A customized, intuitive massage can include one or more types of bodywork, including:
- Swedish massage
- Deep tissue massage
- Cupping therapy
- Hot stones
- Myofascial release
- Cranial sacral therapy
- Energy work
- Lymphatic draining
Intuitive massage is a truly healing experience. Your massage therapist will discuss your short-term and long-term health goals to create a tailor-made service that will meet your needs. Communication and compassion are at the heart of every massage at K.West, and our passion is to help you feel your best.
Dynamic Cupping Therapy
60 minutes $100 / 90 minutes $130
Cupping is an ancient art of healing. At K.West, we perform vacuum cupping – this means no flames and no blood – and a combination of moving and stationary cupping. This technique creates negative pressure, so the tissue is pulled up instead of pushed down like traditional massage.
Dynamic cupping creates a new kind of healing for your body in many ways:
- Increases blood flow
- Loosens muscles and attachments
- Brings old fluids to the lymphatic system for disposal
Cupping is a truly magical experience that will only enhance your health and wellness. This type of bodywork is beneficial for many people. Even pregnant women can receive cupping when working with a therapist who is knowledgeable and trained in prenatal massage and care.
Clients who take blood thinners, have thin skin, or are suffering from a contagious skin condition are not eligible for cupping. Clients who have recently undergone surgery or are currently undergoing medical treatments or procedures are asked to please contact your primary healthcare provider before scheduling a cupping session.
75 minutes $130
An expectant mother’s body is doing hard work every second of the day. Prenatal massage is a specialized service designed to support the health and wellness of mothers-to-be and provide physical and emotional comfort. Your prenatal massage therapist is highly trained in the art of prenatal massage and applies advanced care and techniques to ensure your optimal comfort and safety. You can enjoy the benefits of treating yourself during your pregnancy while trusting that your baby is also reaping the rewards of your relaxed state.
Potential benefits of prenatal body work include:
- Enhanced immune function
- Increased production of oxytocin
- Reduced maternal blood pressure and heart and respiratory rate
- Reduced fear and anxiety
- Increased uterine blood supply to enhance fetal health
- Reduced labor time and complications
- Reduced aches and pains
- Reduced swelling and water retention.
Hot stone massage
90 min $160
Hot stone massage is a luxurious full body treatment combining flowing movement with massage and heated stones. At K. West, we use a combination of black basalt stones and pink Himalayan salt stones to provide a muscle melting service. The hot stones expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body and have a sedative effect that can relive chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
60 min $85
Swedish massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation, relieves muscular tension, plus improves circulation and range of movement. The goal of this massage is to relax and rejuvenate you while easing tension. This is not a deep tissue massage and focuses on treating the whole body instead of focusing on specific areas.
