Licensed massage therapist Holly Bickerstaffe channels her affinity for helping others into her massage-therapy practice, an outlet more fulfilling than standing on the side of the road, shouting out directions to passing motorists. At The Divine Touch, Holly's roster of traditional massages includes modalities such as reiki, craniosacral therapy, somato emotional release, and gua sha, a traditional Asian technique believed to boost circulation and metabolic function. During gua sha massages, she kneads high-pressure areas of skin until a small red patch—or sha—materializes. This red spot will linger for two–three days before disappearing like a magician's bunny into a carrot patch. Holly's holistic services unfold in warm, cozy rooms humming with soft music.
