When she is not busy sharing the multifarious benefits of her bodywork with couples in hands-on massage workshops, licensed therapist Chelsea Short concentrates on soothing muscular aches with a range of therapeutic spa services. Chelsea’s couples classes, held on Saturdays, begin with a basic overview of Swedish massage techniques. The instruction soon gives way to one-on-one practice as couples take turns kneading the knots out of each other’s backs and transmitting affectionate messages in Morse code. Passive learners can indulge in a signature massage that culls techniques from Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point modalities to relieve chronic pain. A boundless supply of hot packs and heated foot towels keeps little piggies warm after cold trips to the market, and a hot-towel facial reduces skin oil while clearing countenances of acne and blemishes.

Steeped in the art of combating stress, One Touch Massage Therapy Clinic's certified therapists alleviate muscular woes with smooth, flowing strokes and varying pressures.

The powerful pressures of the deep-tissue massage work in tandem with assisted sports stretches to flush tension out of muscles and restore backs and shoulders to factory-fresh condition.
