Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
When runner Nolan Lee hurt himself during a track and field event, a licensed massage therapist descended from the stands to come to his aid. After the therapist guided Nolan through stretches and massage, he was awestruck to be feeling relief so immediately without wrapping his legs in hot pancakes. He enrolled in massage school and soon after graduation opened V.I.P Massage. Here, he uses an athlete's understanding of muscle pain to inform his sessions, whether the client wants the soothing strokes of Swedish massage or the more in-depth ministrations of deep-tissue therapy.
