Licensed massage therapist Marci sees massages as more than just an hour of indulgence for the privileged. For her, massages should serve as a legitimate tool for managing chronic pain. She aims to break apart internal scaring and stimulate the removal of toxins through each of her four types of massages: Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point therapy, and pregnancy massage.
A one-hour tension-thawing session subjects muscles maligned by stress to the powerful palms of a licensed therapist with a thorough knowledge of deep-tissue massage. Deep strokes infiltrate the skin’s surface and fearlessly enter the layered inferno of inflamed muscles near the body’s core, kneading away anxieties and paving circulatory highways. Firm pressure relaxes muscles and relieves tensions built up from slouching in office chairs or crouching in air ducts to escape hawk-eyed bosses. Therapist Rebecca Lutheran tailors her bodywork to the individual needs and wishes of each client, covering all the body’s stress points with a range of intensities fluctuating between smooth, gliding motions and full-court pressure. A flexible appointment schedule allows sore-backed patrons to seek immediate relief in either day or nighttime hours.
The massage therapists at Destination Massage & Spa ease clients’ aches with more than just their hands. They maintain a running dialogue during appointments to answer any questions about the service and adapt the session to their individual needs. Eleven different massages take a variety of tracks to relieve stress, whether it’s the organic essential oils of the aromatherapy massage or the penetrating warmth of the hot-stone massage. During a fourhanded session, two therapists or half of an octopus blend a number of styles and techniques to fully relax bodies. Licensed aestheticians wield Dermalogica and Éminence products during facials and exfoliating salt glows to complete rounds of pampering.
We bring the Spa to you! Massage, heat, steam, and aromatherapy. Imagine recieving a relaxing full body massage in the comfort of your own home. You don't have to jump off the table and fight traffic to drive back home. You are already at home and can continue to relax long after we are gone.
After graduating from Carlson College of Massage Therapy, licensed therapist Kelli Auger stuck around and became an assistant instructor and clinic supervisor for her alma mater, which allowed her to share her knowledge with students while honing her skills. Drawing on these years of training and teaching, Kelli opened BodyOasis Therapeutic Massage, where she tends to muscles with four distinct modalities, including deep-tissue techniques, Swedish massage, and couples massage. While she primarily performs these modalities in-studio, Kelli also visits offices and cossets employees with chair massages to help increase productivity, boost morale, and ease shoulders weakened by hours of silent, mental screaming.
Licensed massage therapist Mindy Sanden knows all kinds of ways to soften a knotted muscle. She can address it directly with deep-tissue work, or she can attend to the entire body with hot stones to relax everything at once. But she doesn’t decide which technique to use until she has met her client. Understanding that each client carries tension differently, Mindy customizes her massages according to their needs and the feedback she welcomes throughout the 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions.
