Dana Lewis is not scared of stress. Against her arsenal of massage techniques, tension stands little chance. Traditional relaxation sessions gently break down tightness and instill a sense of overall calm, while more intense deep-tissue techniques plumb deep to undo buried muscle knots. Dana can also call upon Eastern reflexology methods, which involve manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet that correspond to areas across the body. Beyond her skilled hands, Dana also has a spread of additional tools that augment renewal sessions. Hot stones melt tension, cold stones aim to relieve migraines, and soothing paraffin wax can soften the skin while locking in moisture. And for increased health benefits, Dana can add a lymphatic drainage service that evicts nefarious toxins.

"Before I became a licensed massage therapist I was very ignorant of the positive effects of massage," admits Tori Crews. "I never really took good care of my body."

To accomplish this, Tori offers treatments ranging from Swedish massage to deep-tissue work, available with add-ons such as aromatherapy and hot stones.
