What is a Tandem 4 Hand massage?

The ultimate body massage...two highly skilled, experienced professional therapists working together in a choreographed manner to heighten your massage experience. Meaning you will receive double the relaxation and tension relief in half the time with benefits that last 4xs longer.

It is like Lakshmi, the four handed God of Wealth and Beauty; delivering the ultimate therapy for effective tension release, allowing you to deeply relax and regain mental and spiritual bliss. With four hands on your body, you will lose your point of reference and disconnect from reality. In addition to intensifying your relaxation, this massage will really get your blood circulation, so your body feels more vibrant and energized.

We will concentrate on areas that require extra attention, rather than just doing a 'standard' routine that's identical for all clients. We listen to you; it is YOUR session after all.

How is Tandem 4 Hand Massage different from traditional massage?

We offer two styles of Tandem 4 Hand Massage to allow us to better address each individuals needs. Upper Body & Lower Body Massage and Shiatsu & Massage.

Additional Tips

Don't eat a heavy meal before the massage.
If it's your first time at the clinic, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms otherwise, arrive 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the massage.
