Massage therapist Jessica M. Bissonnette is a firm believer in massage's pain-relieving properties and customizes each treatment to address her clients' individual complaints. Drawing from techniques such as deep-tissue, pre-natal, or sports massage, Jessica can do everything from soothing a sore back to diminishing pain from a lingering injury. But it's not all about pain-relief here?clients can also opt for a Swedish massage?a style that focuses less on soreness and more on loosening the muscles and quieting the mind. Meanwhile, as Jessica kneads away tension, on-site aesthetician Vera Willett concerns herself with healthy skin, administering micro-derm facials that utilize a diamond microdermabrasion wand to erase wrinkles and acne from the client's face.

During every appointment, licensed massage therapist Sujata Russell unites the worlds of East and West with her bare hands. She channels her expertise in the Chinese art of tui na to augment modalities such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, blending the styles into a customized treatment for unknotting muscles. She employs this multicultural combination to remedy both acute and chronic aches, rather than only temporarily fixing symptoms by ordering clients to go to sleep. Her massages' other benefits include stress reduction, a boost in circulation, and increased mobility. Clients can schedule massages in increments that range from 30 to 120 minutes, and may also inquire about Sujata's other certifications: qi gong and cupping.
