Having honed her skills in a variety of massage modalities across nearly a decade of practice, licensed therapist Robyn N. Rider deftly soothes away aches and pains with deep-tissue techniques and warm aromatherapy oils. Before each session, clients choose a scented aromatherapy hot oil from a selection that includes lemon eucalyptus, a blend of tangerine, bergamot, and lavender, and a melted concoction of cinnamon rolls and crispy bacon. Next, Robyn combines the hot oil with deep-tissue-massage techniques to loosen knots in limbs and necks. Slow and deliberate strokes soften the tendons and muscles below the skin’s surface, thereby relieving chronic patterns of tension and aiding in injury recovery.
Before each initial treatment at Massage Heights, an experienced, licensed massage therapist assesses a client’s physical condition and inquires about his or her individual back bothers and sore spots, making the ensuing knead comfortably customized. Hourlong massage options include the Swedish massage, which uses calming strokes to erase tension and put an alarm clock to the ear of oversleeping lymphatic systems, and sports massage, which is designed to enhance endurance and reduce recovery time. Weed out deep-seated soreness with a deep-tissue massage, or experience relaxation for two with a pregnancy massage. All of Massage Heights’ kneads are performed on a cushy, heated table to loosen limbs and ramp up relaxation, and the linens used are super soft, like babies’ kneepits. The added hot towel/cold stone face massage uses aromatherapy and soothing stones to relieve sinus congestion, and the peppermint foot scrub relieves aching leg anchors with a tingly, festive scent.
