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.
With degrees from Brigham Young University and Cleveland Chiropractic College, Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Aldridge uses holistic treatments to address chronic pain, illness, and general wellness issues. His techniques include manual adjustments and instrument-delivered tune-ups, which he administers after an initial consultation and exam. Massages bolster chiropractic efforts and relax muscles, while nutritional testing reveals stressed body systems or misplaced pencil erasers from elementary school.
Despite modern inventions and conveniences, life still tends to be stressful. To address this, Desert Lotus Therapy's specialists employ a variety of massage and bodywork modalities to help ease the aches that come along with living in the world today. Inside a low-lit, private room, a resident massage therapist draws upon more than 1,000 hours of experience to deliver long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage or the manipulation of deep-tissue massage.
All too often, a massage studio can feel like a revolving door operation, shuffling clients in and out as quickly as possible. Not at Earth Angels Massage & Bodywork. Licensed massage therapist Erika Martin begins each session with an in-depth consultation to discuss medical history and sideline tension at its source. She then blends such techniques as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote relaxation and stimulate the immune system. Therapeutic hot stones are also available.
At Utah Body Therapies, Inc., the massage therapists don?t just squirt out some oil and hastily get to work. First, they sit down with their clients and talk about their goals in undergoing massage therapy. Then, the bodywork specialists help clients ease pain and promote wellness with a variety of massage modalities. Their sports-injury massages help deal with pain, inflammation, or numbness so clients quickly can get back to their sports routines or just bench-press the massage table right there on the spot.
Stress. Poor circulation. Limited range of motion. All of that can slip away once one of the licensed therapists at Elements Massage gets involved. Each week, the studio opens up hundreds of massage appointments, which represent opportunities to simply relax or rid oneself of a range of issues. Each therapist has trained in deep tissue and swedish massage, and many have experience in other techniques?from prenatal therapy to hot stone massage. But before they ever knead a muscle or activate the body's secret levitation mode, the therapists consult closely with each client, pinpointing his or her issues and coming up with the best possible treatment plan.
