The rustling of palm trees as tradewinds blow through them, the scent of saltwater carried in by rolling waves—nothing quite matches the carefree feel of a day on a beach in Hawaii, which is perhaps why The Wellness Journey Studio's owner Denise Baker-Bradley named her massage offerings after beaches on the tropical islands. But since she believes therapeutic massage therapy is not just for relaxation, these sessions have a therapeutic spin and can increase energy by lowering blood pressure. They can even improve sleep patterns better than keeping a closetful of sheep. During the Papohaku massage, for example, she rolls rods of bamboo over muscles to relieve deep-seated tension. For the celebrity facial massage sauna, she uses facial massage therapy techniques to reduce signs of aging. Before each stroke, she warms the massage oil, as clients stretch out beneath soft sheets and a soundtrack of beach sounds lulls them into a state of calm as deep as the ocean. The studio is located off Route 24 in Brockton.
