Massage Haven's three licensed massage therapists each carry their own specialty. Put together, they offer services that cover the spectrum of massage capabilities: namely, to relieve physical pain and also to foster emotional well-being. Massage modalities include Swedish, sports, deep tissue, and hot stone, and all include hot towels for added comfort.
Bethany relies on a variety of therapeutic modalities to craft custom massages that help clients find relief from pain, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep issues. Her skills include Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, along with trigger point and myofascial release. She works with clients to build the most beneficial massage session, whether that's a reflexology treatment that helps alleviate digestive issues or a sports massage that helps increase range of motion for thumb wrestlers.
It's called the million-dollar stretch. After placing both palms on the hip joint, she slides one hand up the back, and the other hand down the leg––a soothing traction that is a favorite among her massage clients. Jasmine Painter has always loved healing, from her first job selling vitamin and essential oils, to today, working as a fully licensed massage therapist. While Sunlight cascades through her studio's peach curtains, client aches surrender to flowing hot stone therapy, Swedish strokes, and deep-tissue pressure.
Breath and Balance Bodyworks likes to keep things personal. The husband-and-wife duo of William Lee Miller, a registered yoga teacher, and Rainbough Phillips, a licensed massage therapist, helm the small studio, offering private yoga sessions and a concise, yet effective menu of massage services. In addition to private yoga, Miller leads fun kids' yoga classes that help tykes with flexibility and teaches them that "namaste" isn't just something you say when someone sneezes. Phillips, meanwhile, offers a variety of massage treatments that pay equal attention to the mind and the body. She soothes tension and relaxes clients with hot-stone, trigger-point, yoga sage, and chair massages.
Just because licensed massage therapist and owner Karoline Eubank Marks has worked on the Philadelphia 76ers doesn?t mean you need to be a famous athlete or a mathematically automorphic number to indulge in her services. At Austin ReVital Massage, Karoline and her team perform customized Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages on all manner of clients, whether they?re seven-foot tall rebounding machines or white-collar office dwellers. In addition to easing chronic backaches, tension, and headaches with traditional massage services, the team is trained in advanced neuromuscular massage, which allows them to help clients suffering from nerve compression and postural issues.
Jasmin King considers massage a higher calling, and her devotion to the art of healing is evident in both her practiced hands and her spirited personality. For further proof of how seriously she takes her craft, take note of her fluency in modalities that range from the gentle strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue and sports massage. Her knowledge extends even to specialty modalities such as Hawaiian lomilomi, which ties together flowing, graceful strokes with a meditative focus.
King’s healing abilities don’t stop at massage. Her spa treatments include facial massage and body wraps, the latter of which cocoon clients in scented fabrics that release toxins and promote the growth of nascent butterfly wings.
