STL Massage Services’ experienced therapist works his five-fingered magic on weary muscles, casting off anxieties with 1 of 13 massage techniques refined in more than 15 years of practice. Teaming up with a second therapist, Ken treats couples, friends, or pairs of family members to side-by-side 70-minute treatments within a private room. During aromatherapy-massage sessions, the soothing aromas of highly concentrated essential oils slacken the invisible grip of stress and overbearing bosses. Clients can enlist sore muscles in bamboo massage that rolls heated sticks across backs to promote relaxation and sensory-nerve perception. The slow, methodical strokes of Swedish and deep-tissue massages penetrate beyond the skin’s surface to improve circulation and pave fresh pathways for the body’s dump trucks to remove harmful toxins. Injuries sustained in football collisions or full-contact chess stand little chance against sports massage designed to alleviate swelling.
Candles cast their warm glow across the room throughout the session, setting the scene for a romantic getaway and revealing glimpses of the shadow kingdom to which the therapist exiles stress demons. Translucent curtains flow across the ceiling of the massage studio, joining with traditional japanese room dividers among other Asian-inspired ornamentation. After their visit, each pair can flip a coin or wage an Olympic-style staring contest to determine who will use a coupon for $40 off, which is valid for a follow-up individual massage.
