- $45 for a 60-minute intuitive massage and a 30-minute reflexology or acutapping treatment (a $122.50 value)
During the intuitive massage, massage therapist Ingrid Harris follows her instincts to determine where and how to work the body. She also uses intuitive massage strokes during the couples massage.
Reflexology treatments involve the manipulation of pressure points on the hands and feet that correspond to areas throughout the body. During acutapping sessions, a bundle of wire rods hit specific points on the body. The rods create vibrations, which help open up pores and break up any toxins hiding in tissues.
Equilibrium Zen Gym
Equilibrium Zen Gym's holistic healers continually study traditional Chinese medicine to get the knowledge required to strengthen physiques, not just by treating clients' symptoms, but by healing the root of their problems. Equilibrium's staff of soothers includes George Gantt, who became a Tai Chi enthusiast after a knee injury during his college years, and Ingrid Harris, who left a lengthy career in the business world to become a licensed massage therapist
During the center's reflexology treatment, Harris manipulates specific points on the face in an effort to influence the energy flow in the rest of the body and pull any dandelions that have sprouted between the toes. Fine needles penetrate strategic points of the body in order to balance out the distribution of chi during the acupuncture treatment, and vacuum suction teams with carefully placed cups during the massage cupping, which can increase circulation and prime soft tissue for the absorption of liniments and essential oils.
