As a licensed massage therapist, Krystal keeps good company at Utopia Bodyworks. She combines her talents with those of an entire team that includes other therapists, licensed cosmetologists, and a licensed aesthetician. Together, they pamper bodies by rubbing away muscle tension, beautifying faces, and soothing skin with special treatments. Krystal herself specializes in Swedish and deep tissue massages, each one enhanced with soft light and music, and performed in a private room so that clients can easily let go of daily worries, like the fear that the sunset will permanently stain the sky pink.
The hairstylists and aestheticians at Serendipity Salon & Spa dedicate themselves to making clients look and feel their best. They show this dedication with thorough consultations before they perform any haircut, color, or makeover services. That way, they can customize services to each client while learning about their deepest beauty desires.
When she was performing traditional manual massages, Deana Rook had many clients request treatments that involve walking directly on the back. Instead of becoming an expert handstander, Rook researched the physics and anatomical considerations of such a technique and built a frame for two parallel bars above her massage table. She then came across Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, a modality patented by Ruthie Piper Hardee of Health & Body Works Inc, and the missing link she was seeking. After studying directly with Hardee, Rook became the only Mastery-level certified therapist listed in Oklahoma on the organization's website, and opened Global Touch Massage & Ashiatsu to share her advanced training.
In each session, Rook applies massage oil to facilitate deep, multidirectional compression and effleurage strokes, combining the best of Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. The larger surface area of the feet and greater capacity for sustained pressure through the legs can deliver faster relaxation and relief of chronic soft-tissue damage than hand-based methods. Rook also offers Ashi-Thai massage, Hardee's combination of overhead bar support and traditional Thai massage, as well as myofascial release.
