We believe that most of us live outside of our bodies, primarily in our minds and sometimes emotions. As therapists, we are the motivators and catalyst who provide clients with the opportunity to drop into their bodies and gain self-awareness. This interdependent relationship is where the true healing begins.
A soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. The method engages the myofascial tissue and loads it with constant force until release occurs. To achieve this, practitioners can use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia. This type of massage can also incorporate stretching if desired.
Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. It is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation.

Silicone cups are used to relieve muscle tension, improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It can also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. People use cupping to complement their care for a host of ailments and conditions.
Pilates is a system of exercises aimed at promoting balance, control, and integrity within the body. Mainly focused on lengthening the tissue for increased range of motion and strengthening the ‘core’ muscles of each joint to help lessen injury. Equipment and non-equipment-based exercises will be utilized during a 55 min session depending on the needs of the individual.

Smoketree Massage and Apothecary combines individual healing modalities with natural remedies to encourage advanced healing for our community. We began with a focus on massage and quickly discovered we could help our clients foster a more holistic approach to their health with carefully sourced tinctures, salves, oils, teas and CBD products. By providing hand-blended, natural products, our clients have been able to sustain their wellness beyond the massage. So was born the Apothecary…
An apothecary is, and has for centuries, been a pillar of the community as a trusted sanctuary for “old school medicine,” also known as the people’s medicine, i.e., healing tonics, elixirs and salves made from herbs and plants. The apothecarist is well-versed in the healing constituents of natural ingredients and expertly blends them together to meet the unique and specific needs of the client. This is medicine tailored to the individual and addresses the root or underlying problems and source of discomfort.
“We empower our clients to take their health into their own hands.”
