Massage reduces stress. Stress is the #1 problem that causes malfunction within the Endocrine system. The Endocrine system secretes hormones into the bloodstream. When this system is stressed and overloaded, it often sends the wrong messages to the wrong parts of your body. Massage indirectly affects the endocrine system through the nervous system. This is accomplished through gentle and rhythmic massage strokes, a calm and therapeutic environment, and a thoughtful and caring therapist.
Our staff is trained in several modalities, and often use an integrative approach with treating clients. If you would like a specific type of treatment, please read below of our offerings, and clearly communicate your needs with your therapist.
Special Pricing: Wellness 4-pack
30 min – $100 | 60 min – $200 | 90 min – $280
(4 month expiration)
We require that all 4 treatments are booked at time of purchase.
Our 4-pack deals are designed to be affordable for clients to come in weekly or bi-monthly to work through ongoing chronic or acute pain(s). Pain comes in all different shapes and sizes, and is often associated with trauma or repetitive motion to the body. Regular soft tissue massage and joint mobilization can dramatically reduce the pain experienced. Depending on how severe the pain is, often one treatment does not totally eliminate the pain. Every body is different and recovery depends on many factors such as, how long the client has been living with the symptoms and how quickly their body responds to the body work. We have received great feedback from many of our regular clients, that with increased frequency of massage there has been a very positive impact on both their physical and emotions lives.
30 min – $35 | 60 min – $65
90-min – $90 | 2 hours – 125
Let our therapists help you decide what bodywork you need. This is what we do best at Blackbird Wellness VT. Each client is unique and requires a different approach or treatment. Integrative massage means we use our intuition while working with you – some treatments incorporate many different modalities such as Reiki, Deep Tissue, Thai Yoga, Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, and Swedish.
Hot Stones Massage
(60 or 90 minutes) – $65 / $90
During this specialty massage, the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands. Occasionally placing them on the body (such as the lower back, hands and feet) while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

Prenatal massage is a wonderful way to help the Mom to be relax and prepare the body to adapt to the changes of pregnancy and birth.
Thai Yoga Massage
90-min – $90 | 2 hours – $125
Thai massage is also known as “double yoga” as it leverages the body of the therapist to stretch the major muscles and joints of the client. This is great for the lazy athlete who knows they should stretch, but just does not make the time. Leave feeling longer, looser, and more relaxed. Thai Massage is best when it is a 90min treatment. Clients should wear loose comfortable clothing.
30 min – $40
Cupping is an ancient Chinese form of alternative healing in which a local suction is created on the skin. We use glass cups for our treatments. It is believed that the suction mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing- great for relieving muscle tension, knots, and scar tissue build up. Each clients experience is very different during and after this treatment. While it does not normally hurt when the cups are on, the client may have initial sensations of pulling or slight pinching- it depends on how tight the treatment spot is. This is normal and subsides shortly after the cup is in place. Often skin discolorations appear where the cups are applied, this is also normal. The discoloration is a cleansing response as the body releases cellular waste. Depending on how much build up a client has, the treatment areas change in depth of color.
This is a deep healing and cleansing treatment and the client should expect to feel very thirsty after the treatment. It is very important to stay hydrated so the body can continue to move the cellular waste out of the body. Drinking lots of fluids is important.
30 min – $35 | 60 min – $65 | 90 min – $90 | 2 hrs – $125
Life force energy flows through our body via pathways called Chakras, Meridians, Nadis and our Aura. This life force energy nourishes the organs and cells of our body. Reiki energy heals by flowing through any affected part of the energy field and charging it with positive energy, revitalizing body, mind and spirit. Client can be fully clothed during this treatment.
Sound Bowl Healing
60 min – $65 | 90 min – $90
A sound healing session begins with the client lying on a mat, fully clothed, while the practitioner uses therapeutic grade Essential Oils to help the client relax. Next, the practitioner will surround the client with seven Tibetan Singing Bowls designed to balance your Chakras.
Chakras are energy centers within our bodies that record our life’s journey. As we grow and live our lives, our Chakras accumulate the energy that we put forth and receive. Essentially, these centers store all the physical, emotional, and spiritual expressions we experience as human beings.
The practitioner plays various sequences on the bowls to assist you in reaching a deeply meditative state. This meditative state occurs when our brain waves reach the Alpha-Theta stage, allowing access to the subconscious level of our mind. The Alpha-Theta state is the optimal range for visualization and is the mental state at which you consciously create your reality. From here, the practitioner is able to support the client to release stored or blocked energy from each of the various energy centers allowing the energy to flow freely. This deeply relaxing healing session allows the person to release old patterns and align with their natural harmonic state.
