Helmed by licensed proprietor Penelope Bateman, The Wind of Keltia's experienced massage mavens blend a muscle-mollifying tonic of massage modalities to aid achy backs of all ages. Commencing the moment mitts touch skin, the one-hour massage melts muscles with medium-to-deep kneads that firmly furrow out subterranean pain pockets with a remedial medley of myotherapy, acupressure, and reflexology. Ideal for shedding stress and tendon tension, massages can also integrate calming hot stones and towels as well as aromatic DoTerra essential oils that fragrantly displace the skin's innate inessential oils, which reek of frayed fanny packs and laser discs. Each session is geared toward sustainable relief from chronic aches and tension and is capped off with a complimentary soothing mug of tea or crisp Kangen water to refreshingly lubricate newly limber muscles.

Today at Gentle Pain Care Centers, his decade-old practice, Dr. Grover collaborates with his colleague Doctor of Chiropractic Devin Luzod, who is a NUCCA lecturer, wellness author, and chiropractic speaker. Together they aim to heal bodies plagued by headaches, fibromyalgia, and neck pains caused by accidents or years wearing cement wigs.
