The heat from smooth stones spreads gently through the skin and muscles, easing tension and helping Massage Studio & Spa’s therapists relax their clients’ backs. Hot-stone massage, one of five massage modalities the studio’s staff offers, soothes the muscles of solo patrons or couples in sessions up to 90 minutes in length. The roster of services includes therapeutic massage, which uses neural muscular therapy to release pain in specific areas, as well as Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and sports massage, which lasts nine innings. However, the relaxation doesn't stop there. On the spa side, aestheticians help clients look as good as they feel with revitalizing services ranging from facials to body wraps and scrubs. They even offer teeth whitening treatments, brightening clients' smiles before sending them on their way.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Lavender sugar foot scrub. I start by wrapping your feet in warm towels and applying compression. Next, I exfoliate and freshen your feet with the lavender sugar scrub and wrap them in warm towels again. After removing the scrub, I lavish each foot with an incredible massage using reflexology techniques with a luxurious body butter.
