Absolute Wholeness Massage and Wellness owes its extensive repertoire of therapeutic techniques to the diverse backgrounds of its massage therapists. While the therapists might differ in their specializations, which include everything from sports massage to immune-boosting lymphatic-drainage techniques, the entire staff shares a common philosophy: to treat every client as a whole person with his or her own unique needs. To that end, the therapists forgo the one-massage-fits-all template and strive to customize every treatment, from relaxing Swedish massage to focused deep-tissue work to soothing hot-stone massage, to the client?s needs. Sometimes that means helping a client find solace from stress caused by a high-powered work schedule, or physical pain from the marble embedded in the seat of their office chair. This dedication has earned Absolute Wholeness Massage and Wellness reader's choice awards for their services from Style-El Dorado County Foothills magazine three-years running.
