Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.
