Mass Mobile Massage Worcester's owner was once a fitness trainer in the military, but nowadays, he tends to physiques in a more relaxed way. He and his team of more than 25 licensed therapists travel throughout the area, visiting clients' homes for massage sessions in a choice of 15 styles. Their kneads range from a Swedish massage's gentle gliding strokes to funkier styles such as reflexology, which focuses on the hands and feet, and Thai massage, which is essentially assisted yoga.
Hong Kong Style Bodywork strives to balance the body’s chi through massages from modalities such as deep tissue, Thai pressure, and hot stone. Additional treatments include acupressure healing touch and reflexology, and to further spur harmony and wellness, they incorporate Chinese herbs, moxibustion, and cupping treatments.
For the therapists at Sea Spa, massages aren’t simply a way to pamper oneself for an hour; they are tools that improve the function of the body. They evidence this belief within the earth-toned spa’s soothing environs, complete with hardwood floors, padded massage tables, and plush reflexology chairs. Here, the Swedish and deep-tissue strokes of their relaxing and rejuvenating spa massages are supplemented with natural ingredients. Mineral mud exfoliates during deep-cleansing massages, and sea salt works to clear the skin of toxins, impurities, and tattoos of full recycle bins. Steam loaded with herbs used in chinese and tibetan medicine seeps into the skin during footbaths that aim to detox from the inside, a process that can strengthen immune systems and increase energy.
The rustling of palm trees as tradewinds blow through them, the scent of saltwater carried in by rolling waves?nothing quite matches the carefree feel of a day on a beach in Hawaii, which is perhaps why The Wellness Journey Studio's owner Denise Baker-Bradley named her massage offerings after beaches on the tropical islands. But since she believes therapeutic massage therapy is not just for relaxation, these sessions have a therapeutic spin and can increase energy by lowering blood pressure. They can even improve sleep patterns better than keeping a closetful of sheep. During the Papohaku massage, for example, she rolls rods of bamboo over muscles to relieve deep-seated tension. For the celebrity facial massage sauna, she uses facial massage therapy techniques to reduce signs of aging. Before each stroke, she warms the massage oil, as clients stretch out beneath soft sheets and a soundtrack of beach sounds lulls them into a state of calm as deep as the ocean. The studio is located off Route 24 in Brockton.
At Winchester Wellness Centre, two aestheticians and a massage therapist tend not only to the skin's surface but also to the hard-working muscles beneath it. To beautify complexions, aestheticians employ treatments that range from the pore cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing of traditional facials to fine-crystal microdermabrasion and oxygen infusions. Meanwhile, the center's massage therapist alleviates aches with reflexology techniques focused on the hands and feet, or she uses Thai massage to stretch muscles, which enhances flexibility more comfortably than sleeping in a pretzel-shaped bed.
