Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
All of our customized services include options for aromatherapy, customized pressure and modality, signature inhalation and use of hot towels. There are also opportunities to add scalp, hand or foot treatments to any service. Our signature Therapeutic Mud Application makes all difference; the mud comes from France, warms throughout the service and gently soothes the area where it is applied.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Being passionate about how impactful a spa experience can be on overall health and relaxation, I truly enjoy working with an individual to design the perfect "stay-cation" where that person can truly drift away from the pressures of their life and the world. When my guest is ready to leave The Spa, I enjoy seeing their transformation and fresh creativity.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I was lucky and my parents scheduled in relaxation time for me. I learned at an early age that creating a small space to disconnect kept me clear, stable, and free from "burning out." I have always wanted to pay that forward and assist others in creating a similar mental [and] emotional space.
At A Tree Of Life Massage, licensed massage therapists blend an extensive menu of techniques into custom experiences to extinguish client-specific aches and pains. Therapists draw upon classic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques for every session, combining long strokes and gentle kneading to improve a client's circulation, or focusing pressure on key points along the physique to erode internal toxin buildup. Threads of less mainstream modes also weave into relaxation sessions; therapists can harmonize discordant zones in the body by stimulating reflex points in the feet, or can wake up tired tendons with heated basalt stones and a quadruple shot of espresso. Clients can unwind alone in plush, minimalist rooms, or share their hearts and massage areas with a significant other during a romantic couples session, complete with aromatherapy.
Having visited clients in hotels and ski resorts for seven years before establishing her own practice, licensed massage therapist Allison has amassed a repertoire of luxurious add-ons to her services. Her wintertime patrons rest atop heated tables, for example, and she swaddles limbs in warm towels upon request. Guests can even choose how they would like their aromatherapy oils to be distributed: directly on the skin, diffused through the air, or delicately combed into their mustache.
Allison still makes house and hotel calls to complement her in-spa treatments, which cover a range of specialty massage techniques. Her signature modality mixes Swedish, Russian, and trigger-point therapy for a medley of surface- and deep-tissue work, whereas a pure relaxation massage relies on Swedish kneads to lull muscles into slack serenity. She and her apprentices have also mastered the use of hot stones, salt scrubs, and paraffin wraps to enhance their appointments. Whether her customers are hoping for pinpointed, intense strokes or a romantic couples massage, they can anticipate calming music and intuitive touch from the team.
Good things come in groups of 12––months, cupcakes, and toes, to name a few. Perhaps that's why The Massage Center handpicked exactly one dozen expert massage therapists to rid the community of chronic aches. The massage menu is structured to fit the needs of the individual with a wide array of techniques, ranging from flowing Swedish strokes to shiatsu to deep-tissue pressure for lower-layer aches.
The pressures of life drift away inside the private, comfortable treatment rooms of All Around the Town Massage and Wellness Spa. In those rooms, massage therapists loosen tense muscles with techniques that range from hot-stone massage to Thai-Swedish strokes. Visitors also can opt for beautifying treatments such as face-lift massages or herbal sugar scrubs that slough away dead skin cells.
