Massage & Bodywork

“Our bodies are our gardens — our wills are our gardeners.” — Shakespeare

Aurora is a place removed from the hustle and bustle of your daily life. Take advantage of your time here with a renewing massage, provided for the Inns of Aurora exclusively by Rasa Spa.

Since 2006, Rasa Spa is the only full-service, holistic healthcare spa actively cultivating wellness in the Finger Lakes region. Encompassing a wide range of natural, healing therapies and treatments, Rasa’s aim is to bring each client toward optimal, whole health. From energy work to massage, Rasa is a perfect synthesis of quality service and deep respect for natural healing.

Massages and treatments, unless otherwise arranged, take place in the Loft, nestled in the heart of village and within easy walking distance from each of our four inns. With hand-hewn beams and plentiful light, the Loft — built in 1903 as the village school — now offers an airy, fully-equipped yoga studio and two private, beadboard-lined treatment rooms.

Call us today at 315-364-8888 to arrange your restorative experience.

Duet Massage

Medical Massage

Massage improves the pain and discomfort that comes as a result of any number of medical issues.

Sports Massage

A must for pre- or post-workout flexibility, recovery, and restoration, sports massage employs deep pressure techniques to targeted muscle groups. Sports massage can be used to warm up muscles prior to your workout or competition and to flush out post-workout toxins. Make these sessions part of your training plan by coupling them with your workouts so you can recover faster.

Reflexology Massage

Reflexologists view the feet as areas that mirror the body, and use their practice to stretch, apply pressure, and move these extremities in order to affect the corresponding parts of the body in positive, healing ways. This is one of the best modalities to give your mind a vacation while your whole body receives a wonderfully healing treatment through the parts of our body that are so often neglected.

60-minute $120 | 90-minute $170

Aromatherapy Massage

Choose from one of our three signature blends to add another level of sensory heightening to your session. Aromatherapy massage also includes the caring application of hot towels and our own foot cream treatment.

Hot Stone Massage

Using heat-absorbing basalt, our hot stone massage combines elements of the earth with a grounding human touch that soothes muscles and increases circulation with the release of heat through both the massage and the stone.

Ananda Hot Oil Treatment

Ananda is Sanskrit for “the bliss of being.” Focusing on the pressure points on the scalp and based on an ancient Ayurvedic treatment, the Ananda will bring you to a place of bliss and presence. Using warmed oils of vetiver and sandalwood and gentle massage to work the oils into your hair and scalp, the treatment clears the hair follicles, stimulates new hair growth, brings moisture to the skin, and leaves the hair revitalized. The Ananda is a treatment created by, and exclusive to, Rasa Spa.

60-minute $125 | 90-minute $175

This balancing and restorative energy session will gently lift you out of the day-to-day world and then land you safely back into your body feeling renewed. By addressing your entire body from head to toe, this beautifully quiet hands-on session serves as a reminder for us to take time for ourselves, and check in on our deeper corners.
