Kelly Wright is a licensed massage therapist tasked with easing minds and muscles at Wright Touch Spa. She specializes in multiple massage modalities, and offers treatments that address both physical and emotional discomfort. Her deep-tissue and pain-relief massages are geared towards tightness and tension or pain from an injury. To boost feelings of calm, she offers hot stone and aromatherapy relaxation massages, which loosen the muscles while bringing about feelings of contentment and bliss.
At her studio, Anne Schuster, LMT's healing hands relieve clients' aches and pains. The massage therapist does so with deep-tissue, Swedish, and chair massages. To augment these massages, she offers full-body wraps, which include exfoliation and body muds. Using wellness massage as her cornerstone philosophy, Anne sees massage therapy as an important aspect in promoting overall wellness. With the belief that massages can relax, renew, and rejuvenate, Anne incorporates heated tables and music as she customizes each massage to clients' needs. Results include reduction of muscle tension and stiffness, relief of muscle spasms, increased flexibility, skin nourishment, posture improvement, and an overall increase in health and stress reduction.

Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
