Do you need to de-stress?
Clients and patients come to us for our ‘serious massage therapy magic’, rather than ‘fluffy massage’.
Your mental and physical health is impacted by high levels of mental, emotional, and physical stresses.
Our focus is to help you reduce and eliminate stress-associated illnesses and dis-ease.
Our founder, Irene Diamond, R.T., developed a concept she calls a Precise Private Practice, that we follow.
Operating a “PPP” means we are extremely selective in who we accept into our wellness center and only provide services to patients and clients who know we can precisely help!
If you are accepted as a client, we will design a therapy plan to help you reach your precise goals, and we do that with you through precise clinical protocols and modalities!
One of the exciting things that make us unique, is we have 3 ‘levels’ of hand-picked massage therapists to choose from, to be sure you get the best fit for your needs.
Prior to booking your appointment, we offer a complimentary brief, personalized consultation over the phone (or in person) to help you decide what Level of Therapist and which of our services or programs would be best for you, based on your clinical goals and preferences.
We specialize in helping you actually achieve your clinical goals rather than just have you lie on the table and have us pat you!
Because you and we know that most people’s pain, stress or discomfort will not be completely resolved or relieved in 1 single session, you may be like most of our other clients and patients and prefer to participate in one of our precisely-designed programs so you can actually receive your clearly defined results!
(If you’re visiting from out of town, you may be simply looking for a single-session to relax and that’s ok, too.)
Once your specific goals have been achieved, you are best served as a member of our outstanding Diamond Club! The Diamond Club is an invitation-only club for people who want to receive consistent massage therapy on an on-going basis to maintain their level of wellness, and stop issues in their tracks before they get worse.
(ONLY for people who are not in acute care)
Diamond Club members receive HUGE benefits and are eligible to receive member-only rates, gifts and extra goodies.
If you would like to discuss your eligibility to become a Diamond Club member, please request an invitation to The Diamond Club here
What are your therapy goals?
Let us help you choose your precise ‘Level’ of the therapist and program best for you!
(We provide a reduced fee for members and for all service that are paid for at time of service and don’t require billing.)
Apprentice massage therapists are newer to the profession and are either finishing training school or are newly graduated.
Apprentice sessions focus on de-stressing and relaxation, and relief of muscular tension. (As part of the therapist’s training, we ask you to take a few minutes after your massage to complete a quick written evaluation form.)
(Please note: Due to the fact Level I therapists are still perfecting their craft ~ We absolutely WILL NOT recommend these beginner therapists if your goal is more than relaxation of tight muscles and reduction of stress. There is no billing for Level I services)
Start at $67 / 55 minutes
These therapists have a higher level of skill and experience, and offer a variety of corrective-based massage styles along with fantastic relaxational massage styles.
Perfect for you if you have every-day aches, muscle tension, and stress.
Start at $117 / 55 minutes
Our Level III Massage Therapists have much more advanced training and experience, and have accomplished a high level of competency.
These are the people to see if you have a more complicated physical history or a therapy goal that require a higher level of professional competency and skill.
OR if you simply prefer to choose the best!
These superb therapists offer a wider variety of styles and can address your simple to more complex issues or needs.
Start at $147 / 55 minutes
Stress reducing and relaxing, this traditional massage focuses on your entire back, neck, limbs, hands, face, head and feet. It will renew your feeling of tranquility and revitalize your sense of well-being.
Designed to relieve tension, get rid of painful, tight, knotty areas, re-align scar tissue. It can also help rehabilitate injuries in ligaments, tendons and muscles. Deep Tissue/Sports Massage utilizes a combination of massage techniques such as acupressure, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. You and your therapist determine how to combine these techniques based on your unique needs and condition.
Sports Massage is excellent as a “training massage” in between sporting events to help prevent injuries and to correct any problems before they get worse, and allow you to train harder. Pre & Post-event Sports Massage will speed your recovery time and increase the flexibility of your muscles and joints.

When your time is limited or you don’t want to undress, seated ‘chair’ massage is for you. The session is done with you sitting in a specially designed chair which allows the therapist to reach your back, shoulders and neck. Other areas of your body can also be worked depending on the length of session you reserve.
You stay clothed so no wasted time, no greasy lotion, and you can easily get back to your day.
(See our description of On-Site Chair or Table Massage for your Party or Corporate Event)
If you have one area or spot that needs “fixing,” come in for a “Tune-Up/Fix-It Session.” Usually done clothed, the focus is on reducing pain, and breaking spasms in one specific area of your body.
Sessions are 15-20 minutes (based on practitioner providing service — call for details)
When your condition or needs are focused on relieving or rehabbing a specific injury, post-surgery, or condition please contact us to discuss if you will be better served by seeing a Rehabilitation expert rather than a massage therapist.
Therapists use lotion or cream, not oil ~ so you don’t feel like a greased pig when you’re finished.
If you prefer, your therapist can use no lotion at all, and either just work through the sheet, your loose-fitting clothes, or talc may be offered instead of lotion.
“More Pain = Better Results?” We Believe It Should NEVER Hurt! Some therapists believe, “The More Pain the Better!” We don’t believe this to be true — nor effective!
Your therapist knows the correct way to get in deep and release spasms, aches and knots without causing you MORE pain, by going too deep but, instead, knowing precisely how to coax your muscles into relaxing!
At Diamond Wellness Center, your therapist understands there are times to apply very firm pressure.
We say, “It should be a Good Hurt”, that means applying enough pressure to do what needs to be done without causing you to tighten up and experience more pain!
Always be sure to communicate with your therapists, since every body is different. At Diamond we developed a “Rate of Perceived Comfort Scale” scale. This is “RPC” scale is a 0 -10 scale, where a ‘0’ is no pain and complete comfort, and a ’10’ is absolutely too uncomfortable.
The level for therapeutic deep tissue work (your “Good Hurt”) should stay around a 7-8 out of 10.
We are happy to explain and demonstrate how we provide a deep, yet pain-free effective pressure to relieve your tension and satisfy your need for ‘deep-tissue’.
Studies have shown that moist heat applied to tight, achy muscles helps to soften the area and increase blood flow to the area. Incorporate ‘Diamond Hot Packs’ into your session, at no additional cost. Enhance your experience, provide more therapeutic benefits and allow your muscles and fascia (the connective tissue) to soften so your therapist can easily get into your tight tissue with less pain, and better results!

Your sense of smell is the strongest of all our five senses. To enhance your Rest & Relaxation when appropriate, your therapist may add Aroma Therapy to your massage.
Choose from organic Lavender or Honey Almond to calm you, or if you’re going back to work or out on the town try Grapefruit Mandarin or Lime Mint for a more invigorating session.
(Included at no cost, when appropriate, and request)
Sessions booked for an hour or longer will end 5 minutes prior to allow you to get dressed leisurely. (Rates shown reflect our 55 or 85 minute professional hour.)
We often provide off-site massage in private homes, hotels, offices, and at private parties and special events. Details here.
