Digital Detox

We live in a world that may sometimes feel like we’re being deluged with data. Studies show that exposure to the blue light that emanates from our phones and computers suppresses the natural secretion of melatonin and shifts the body’s circadian rhythms which is proven to interfere with mood, sleep patterns, relationships and overall well-being.

What if you allowed yourself to disconnect and Return to the Simplicity of Self? 

Give your senses a much needed rest by stowing your electronic devices and allow the Shou Sugi Ban House Team to guide you through your stay. Enjoy an integrated daily schedule that encourages time in nature, extra care for your physical body and sensory meditations to quiet the mind.

Signature Massage

Intentional, functional massage therapies crafted to restore balance and inner strength. Choose from the following options for your 60 minute massage experience:

Edge of Woods: Therapeutic Swedish massage nourishes life force by blending golden organic jojoba, rosehip, yuzu and cedar atlas oils. Herbal compresses steeped in warm elderflower, mugwort and willow tea relax muscle tissues and calm the mind. Recommended for insomnia, anxiety, stress and emotional fatigue.

Clear the Path: A hybrid of movements from both Western and Eastern massage modalities ignites energetic movement from within by shifting stagnant energy and inspiring mental clarity. A brisk hemp-glove exfoliation prepares the mind and body for an invigorating massage using a vitalizing warm-oil blend of organic sesame with hinoki, grapefruit and rosalina essences. Complimentary cupping therapy can be included as part of this treatment to help reduce pain and inflammation, promoting increased blood flow and circulation.

Open Channel: In Fiore’s Firmante Elevating Leg Tonic, infused with black spruce, cypress and neroli essences, helps to ground your physical foundation and balance kidney yang. Using plant properties that warm the body and ignite the metabolic processes, this full-body massage focuses on aligning deep energy channels throughout the legs with a stimulating blend of stretching,  deep-tissue, light lympho-circulatory techniques and reflexology. Acupressure and kidney meridian work assist the body in detoxifying cellular waste, improving the appearance of veins, and minimizing cellulite.

Roots Unbound: Highly therapeutic, site-specific massage of the abdomen, pelvis, lower back and glutes is the main focus of this full body massage  to nurture inner and outer holistic vitality. Gentle infrared heat and a purifying blend of frankincense, hyssop, ginger, coconut and shea oils are used from the core to the extremities to work through blockages in the body and promote openness and flow throughout the mind. Ideal for digestive or immune issues, lower back pain, irregular sleep or lack of vitality and heat.

SSBH Signature Workout

A fitness methodology based on the core principles of traditional strength and conditioning, gymnastics and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) programs.
