Throughout his career, licensed massage therapist Kevin McLellan has been blending eastern and western techniques. While he was mastering western bodywork traditions, he also practiced acupressure, qi gong, and Judo?in fact, he's now a black belt.
At his massage studio, however, Kevin concentrates on just two modalities: Swedish and shiatsu massage. The treatments might vary in pressure and philosophy, but they share many similar benefits, including alleviated stress, reduced pain, and a better understanding of what it's like to be bread dough.
When David Obando was 16 years old, he weighed 240 pounds and had a body fat percentage of 28%. Something had to give. With the help of a new workout routine and a change in diet, he was able to lose and keep off more than 60 pounds. Today, David is a certified personal trainer and massage therapist, as well as a master Pilates instructor and corrective exercise specialist. In the comfort of his private studio, clients can solicit David for weight loss advice and athletic performance enhancement, or request a therapeutic massage with flowing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue pressure.

They also offer facials that eschew the use of harsh chemicals and controlled fire in favor of plant-derived G.M. Collin products.
