Massage Therapy for deep healing 

Your wellness is our priority at Big River Yoga. To support you, we offer massage therapy and specialize in Thai Massage, deep tissue massage and Swedish massage. Relax and rejuvenate in the expert and skilled hands of our massage therapists!


Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is a soothing, nourishing experience that incorporates various techniques, including; long gliding strokes to nourish and relax, therapeutic cross friction to release muscle adhesions, and a squeezing and milking of the muscles to release tension from chronically tight areas of the body. Swedish/Deep Tissue massage is performed on a massage table and sessions are customized to meet your needs. Benefits include pain relief, relaxation, regulation of the nervous system, restored blood flow to tight or injured areas and feelings of relief and freedom.

Thai Massage


Thai massage increases overall range of motions and releases deeply held tension throughout the body. It consists of rhythmic compression with gentle rocking, deep stretching and joint mobilization. Sessions are very relaxing. Thai Massage is performed on the floor on a mat, the recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and is a full body massage experience. It is unique in that it works on the muscular/skeletal system as well as the energetic* body. People often report “feeling like a million bucks”; light and energized after a session.




Rest on our HealthyLine heated mat as you receive your massage session. This device is embedded with amethyst, jade and tourmaline crystals and emits far infrared heat and photon light therapy that penetrates and warms the body from the inside out. It feels great and is deeply relaxing and healing.

Chris is hands-down the best massage therapist I’ve ever been to. He’s highly skilled, thoughtful, and intuitive, and his yoga practice and teaching give him an in-depth understanding of body, mind, and spirit that he brings to every massage. I now get Thai massage from him regularly and am grateful to have made this life-changing investment in my health and well-being. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Chris’ massage is a perfect complement to my yoga practice. I always feel relaxed and more limber when I leave.
