We achieve these goals by utilizing the LUNA Cycle.

We are located minutes away from Old Town, Alexandria and serve the neighboring communities of Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Falls Church, and Washington, DC. 

The LUNA Cycle

1.

Develop a clear game-plan for the current session by asking questions to determine which areas need emphasis, if any. If you are a returning client and we have a longer game-plan for you – we will discuss where we are with that plan.

Please note: there are no wrong answers during this quick game-planning session as the most important point of this phase is to LISTEN to your needs and deliver a massage that will meet and/or exceed your expectations.

2.

Apply the game-plan while performing the requested massage and adjust on-the-fly, if needed.

3.

Conduct a quick exit interview to ascertain if your expectations have been met; discuss with you further recommendations on how to remedy problem areas, if any; and answer any questions you may have either related to the current session or in general.

About Us

After working several years at reputable Day Spas and Wellness Centers in Northern Virginia she decided to venture out on her own.

LUNA is the fruition of working hard and serving her clients as best as she can. To be sure, the sense of pride Kelly receives from helping her clients achieve a good place in terms of their body, mind and spirit – is the vehicle that drives LUNA Massage Studio.

The motto of Kelly’s native Costa Rica is Pura Vida which means Pure Life and its the only way she knows how to live. Kelly believes frequent massage therapy and exercise improves sleep, mobility, increases energy, and relieves stress. She grew up in a household utilizing natural remedies and continues adhering to the values to this day.

Our Services

Deep Tissue Massage

Technique used to treat musculoskeletal issues giving attention to certain painful, stiff “trouble spots” in your body. The massage therapist applies sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes and sometimes the elbow to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissue. The pressure is not invasive but increases gently as the fascia opens and allows penetration as deeply as is comfortable.

Prenatal Massage

During pregnancy, a woman’s body experiences many physical and hormonal changes to accommodate for the gestation and delivery of a baby. Strain is increased on the lower back, hips and lower extremities because of increasing weight. Hormones cause softening of ligaments and other connective tissue in preparation for delivery and can play a part in the emotional swings that some expectant mothers experience.

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used—to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
