Crystal Phoenix Massage has been open since 2017 and is owned by the husband and wife massage therapy team of Christian and Craig Stewart. Massage is absolutely a calling and we find a profound sense of fulfillment knowing that we can help decrease pain and tension in our clients.

At Crystal Phoenix Massage, we strive to give you a session that will ease stress and decrease anxiety, while melting away knots and tension. All without forcing your muscles to release before they’re ready to do so. We do this by employing multiple massage modalities, plus the use of Hot Stones and Aromatherapy.

Currently, we offer many standard services such as Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Reflexology, Gua Sha, Injury Massage & Sports Massage.

We offer Prenatal Massage with Luxery Padding that lets the new mother lay face down if she would like. We are both very skilled with Migraine Treatment that includes occipital release and peppermint scalp massage.
Warm Bamboo is one of our newest massage tools we use in conjunction with Hot Stones for clients with extremely dense muscle tension and can be added on to any session the same as the stones or Aromatherapy.
