The therapists at Grace Massage & Bodyworks believe that each day is part of a long journey, and that journey differs depending upon the choices you make. The path to wellness is no different. That's why therapists provide a diverse array of therapeutic massage modalities to help clients on the road to healing the mind, body, and soul. Guests can solicit a skilled muscle mender for flowing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, or more unique modalities such as hot-stone or steam bodywork.
Choose between one of three relaxing massage techniques including the deep tissue, Swedish, or signature. The deep tissue is a pressurized, full-body technique that seeks the deepest knots and unties them with the proficiency of a Boy Scout with adult hands. Go with the Swedish if you prefer traditional, long strokes tied to a gentle muscular overhaul. The signature treatment includes a total body pampering with extra attention given to comforting the hands and feet using heated spa treatments.
Melle, a certified massage therapist and current physical-therapy student, and Stacy, a licensed aesthetician with a biotechnology degree, make a good team. Melle handles relaxation; she applies light pressure to the muscles as Hawaiian music plays during the lomi lomi massage. In another room, Stacy, who is in the process of developing her own organic skincare products, slathers PCA Skin and Dermalogica solutions onto faces during chemical peels and facials. The two also use sugar and glycolic scrubs to remove dead skin from the body and warm wax to uproot chest hair and upper-lip fuzz to leave clients smoother than the planet Jupiter would be if it were sanded down into a marble.
Morly Shapira, the expert massage therapist, energy healer, and life coach at Therapeutic Healing, works with clients' specific needs to design a course of life improvement using all the tools at her disposal. She works to reduce physical pain and stress through massage therapy, and works with the energy channels of the body with energy healing. To tackle more emotional issues, Morly meets privately with guests for life-coaching sessions, during which she and her client discuss sources of unhappiness or frustration and brainstorm action plans to remedy them.

She also offers herbal body wraps that contour the body and circulate lymph back into the blood stream. In addition to detoxification treatments, the team offers massages and waxing and skincare services.
