Five Elements for Well Being's reflexologist and feng shui consultant claims her massages are so relaxing that some clients have even fallen asleep during their session. Maybe this is also due to the fact that they're seated in a comfortable setting, sometimes at her private home studio.
She massages specific reflex points in their hands and feet—a centuries-old technique believed to balance energy throughout the body's organs and glands.

At Reiki Therapy, Reiki practitioner Sophie Fougere attempt to return balance to the mind, body, and spirit by providing relaxation and restoring natural energies. Through her techniques, she encourages natural rejuvenation and healing within the body. Reiki can help reduce stress, anxiety, and chronic pains, or potentially help in breaking addictions.
The licensed therapists at Carolina Health & Wellness restore balance to their clients' bodies with soothing massages and reiki treatments. They call upon the relaxing strokes of Swedish massage or the firm pressures of deep-tissue massage to loosen up muscles and ease tension.
Insight Wellness's resident massage therapist and acupuncturist, Tom Cohen, aids achy backs by applying the theories of the Somatic Education Technique (SET), a system he also relies on in his role as a martial-arts trainer. The core of this philosophy is that our bodies change slowly, and that once we live with bad habits, such as poor posture, we must concentrate on "unlearning" them before we can be well again, much as dogs must unlearn their master's commands before they can hold political office.
These beliefs manifest in Cohen's services, which include orthopedic pain-management acupuncture sessions that treat not only aches and pains, but fatigue, stress, and insomnia. Cohen's massage talents are likewise far ranging: his neuromuscular therapy manipulates the body's trigger points to eliminate the source of pain, and his sports massages improve flexibility and relieve injuries, earning him the endorsement of professional football player Damione Lewis.
