Bodies in Balance's muscle mender, Michael Millner, soothes tightened stress knots with a slew of revitalizing techniques. After a consultation, during which clients can call out specific problem areas or their favorite colors, bodies recline for a 60-minute custom mollycoddling, which targets specific aches and pains. Based in the Swedish circulatory style, each human tenderizing session blends elements of deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and hydrotherapy into a rejuvenating treatment that helps restore battered meat suits to their former glory. Meanwhile, athletes can reap the healing benefits of a sports massage to promote speedier regeneration from back injuries caused from doing improper handstands instead of defending themselves during boxing matches.

Massaged therapist Cameron fine-tuned his golden touch at massage schools in both California and Massachusetts. Now drawing on more than six years of experience, he relieves chronic tension out of his own studio, White Birch Massage. Here, clients can request flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation, or access lower-layer tension with firm trigger-point and deep-tissue techniques. When not untying muscular knots, Cameron enjoys disk golf, yoga, and running barefoot across the backs of tense giants.
Before founding Indigo Massage and Healing Center, Joe and Charity pursued virtually every interest they could, traveling across the globe to explore potential passions. Joe worked odd jobs and honed his interpersonal awareness as a nurses’ assistant and life coach, and Charity devoted herself to helping start a rainforest preserve in Costa Rica and volunteering at a Moroccan orphanage. Both their paths, however, eventually converged on their mutual passion: massage. Together, the couple boasts 500-hour certifications and endless additional training, and along with a team of doctors and bodywork experts, they work on issues ranging from muscle pain to overactive skeletons. Beyond the suite of wellness services, which includes acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, and yoga classes, the center offers mental counseling to ensure its clients’ holistic health.
At CLINIC Alternative Medicines, a team of massage therapists, acupuncturists, and holistic healers congregate in a like purpose: to heal the body without the use of drugs or surgery. Their approach to this mission involves a range of hands-on treatments such as massage and reiki sessions along with holistic modalities designed to tap into the body’s energy to locate and heal the source of illnesses. Before treating patrons with reflexology, nutritional therapy, or mind body counseling, the team demonstrates their commitment to wellness by consulting with each client to better understand their condition and goals.
Licensed massage therapist Pamela Smith kneads muscles to more soothed states, helping clients to achieve peace of mind and body. Through the blending of six different massage modalities, Pamela customizes the one-hour muscle molding to suit each client's needs. For example, athletic clients or those suffering from chronic injuries from games of full-contact checkers may receive a combination of sports massage and deep-tissue work to target tight muscles, coaxing them to less tense topographies through stern but comfortable pressure, similar to curfew lectures from concerned dads.
