At the Retreat at Serendipity Province in Valparaiso, IN, we customize our massages to fit the needs of our clients. If you would like more or less pressure used in your treatment always feel free to inform your therapist.
Massage can produce a range of real physical and psychological benefits. These can enhance flexibility and athletic performance in a healthy body, or can help a body that is out of balance or struggling with serious illness. Recent medical research strongly suggests that massage decreases suffering in illness, reducing tension and anxiety and promoting well-being, relaxation, and contentment.
The Benefits of Massage
Beauty is truer and deeper than we normally allow and it arises from health in mind and body. By stimulating the circulation, nourishing the skin, relaxing the muscles and calming the mind, massage and the use of essential oils helps you to achieve glowing skin, shining eyes, a relaxed body, and an optimistic spirit. Massage can therefore be a truly comprehensive beauty treatment that keeps you looking young and feeling beautiful.
Choose Your Therapist Carefully to Ensure Your Very Best Service! Everybody at The Retreat has different specialties and even though we have protocols for each treatment we offer, we are all individuals and we all have different levels of pressure. If you book a "bliss appointment" your pressure will be light to medium. If you book a rescue appointment your pressure will be "medium to firm". Not everyone is capable of performing a really good deep tissue so be sure to look before you book! Check out our biographies to see who best suits your needs.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is one of the most common overuse injuries among runners, athletes in general and It can affect people who sit a lot for work, climb stairs, garden, etc., etc. This occurs when the iliotibial band, the ligament that runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin, is tight or inflamed. The IT band attaches to the knee and helps stabilize and move the joint. When the IT band isn’t working properly, movement of the knee and/or the hip becomes painful. IT band & hip pain can be severe enough to interrupt your sleep & critically limit your movements during the day. Many people misdiagnose this Syndrome as a sciatic nerve issue. The really good news is that this Syndrome is relatively easy to fix with the use of massage. Good News Indeed!!!
