At LoveHealing, a massage therapist relaxes bodies and relieves tension with a range of massage modalities that inspire mind-body harmony. These indulgent services are all performed within the cozy confines of her softly lit studio, pleasing clients' eyes as their bodies sink into relaxation.
Black Rock Bodywork's licensed massage therapist, Janice Strileckis, ease aches from weary bodies with soothing Western massage methods. During each session, clients clamber atop heated massage tables and lounge in piles of cozy blankets as her nimble hands liberate muscles from knots and restrictive corsets. Drizzles of glossy massage oils and lotions soften skin and counteract uncomfortable friction, and pillows provide additional support during each 60- to 90-minute treatment. Janice employs slow, deliberate strokes during deep-tissue rubdowns to mitigate chronic pain and relieve tension from muscles moonlighting as rubber-band balls. Flowing strokes and gentle kneading comprise the relaxing repertoire of a Swedish massage, which strives to hasten blood flow and alleviate discomfort from soft tissues.
Traditional bodywork unites with Eastern energy healing at Quantum Touch Massage Therapy, where LMT Janice Strileckis assuages pain and stress with her massage techniques. Inside the cozy office, breathing exercises accompany long and flowing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue kneads, and relaxation and wellness modalities. Janice works to heal a range of ailments, from chasing away everyday anxiety to rehabilitating injuries caused by auto accidents, participation in athletics, and lifting a 50-pound med-school textbook day after day.
After a year of living in the corporate-communications world, Sabita knew she needed to change paths. Like a baseball player who runs to first every time he swings, she felt herself becoming too aggressive. In order to reconnect with her inner empathy and sense of place in the world, she decided to commit herself to taking care of others. With that desire in mind, she became a massage therapist and holistic-health counselor and opened the Sabita Holistic Center in 2003 to surround herself with like-minded professionals.
Celebrating their 10th year of business, Sabita and her staff heal guests of all ages and needs with holistic techniques, such as guided meditation, massages specifically tailored to elderly guests, and self-esteem workshops. In addition to leading the classes and workshops, doctors meet with guests to prescribe holistic treatment plans that incorporate Western and Eastern methods. The center even purveys its own beverage: Sabita Tea. It's a kosher-certified organic line that comes in varieties such as peppermint white tea, nutmeg white, and anise—which comes from the eponymous seed-producing plant.

Aside from the extensive menu of facials, Shelton-Saxe Aesthetics offers therapeutic massage and waxing services.
