Massage and Skin Care Services



All of the massage at The River Bend Day Spa is therapeutic by nature, through manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) we seek to enhance a person’s health and well-being.  From a full body massage or a more focused session we can provide attention to sore tired areas and help sooth achy muscles, decrease stress, release toxins, and increase circulation.

60mins = $75.00     90mins = $105.00



Deep tissue techniques are used to reach the deeper layers of muscle structures. This massage is for the client who wants deep pressure on all body areas. Most deep tissue clients are very active, have deep aches and pains, or is a regular receiver of massage. We can do a full body deep tissue massage or we can focus on specific body areas like the back, neck, and shoulders.

60mins = $100.00


Add Essential Oils to any massage. These oils are pulled from flowers, herbs, roots, and trees to enhance the massage experience. Essential oils are good for inhalation therapy, relieving muscle aches, or just plane relaxation. We can customize the oils to fit your individual needs.

$5.00 Add on



Gentle pressure on specific points on the feet and hands stimulate nerve ending to internal organs, glands, and other body structures. Pressure on these reflex points affect and normalize the functioning of the body. Each treatment will start with a little massage on each foot. Starting with the right foot, we will then work through each reflex point. This treatment is good for those who are suffering from body system problems, or anyone who is just looking for deep relaxation.

60mins = $60.00     45mins= $45.00

During this treatment you will comfortably lay slightly elevated on the massage table. Each facial will start with a deep cleanse & exfoliation of the skin. Extractions of blackheads are optional. A short facial massage and mask are then applied. Ending by giving the skin nourishment and hydration. Hot towels, steam, high frequency unit and galvanic currents are used to soften & cleanse the skin. This treatment is good for those with dry or aging skin, congested pores or acne, or just anyone who is looking for some refreshment. I use a professional product line, Dermalogica (subject to change without warning.)

60mins = $80.00
