At Happy Day Spa, a number of massage services are available to boost circulation and lymphatic flow and encourage a state of serenity. The spa also offers foot reflexology, a treatment that strives to improve overall health, relaxation and renewal by targeting specific nodes on the feet. Meanwhile, hot-stone, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages manipulate tense muscles, and a crystal foot massage pampers soles with crystal mud?a gel-like solution made from a specialized powder, warm water, and the dirt outside after a diamond storm.
Massage therapist and Reiki master Susan Langley, co-owner Judy Rury, and their co-practitioner Elizabeth Brown exude passion and expertise for all forms of bodywork, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. They work with clients to find the right treatment for them, whether it be prenatal massage or the energy-healing treatments of Reiki, chakra-balancing, and gemstone therapy.

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Color this picture. Enter: extremely tired, can't sleep, over worked, over stressed, suffering from painful muscle tension and headaches, haggard looking, cross, crabby, and hating life grouchy old woman or old man who enters my treatment room. Exit: Transformed into relaxed, refreshed, energized, smiling, happy person looking years younger. Sparkling eyes, rosy cheeks, frown and pain lines gone from the face and a spring in the step. How can it get any better than that?
Kathleen Caruso encourages wellness and relief for her clients by finding and correcting the energetic imbalances that can contribute to chronic pain and prevent people from living fuller, happier lives. To restore this sense of holistic harmony, she employs a range of treatment modalities?energy medicine, massage, acupressure, reflexology, reiki, chakra balancing, and more?as she help jump-starts the body's natural healing processes. Raindrop therapy, for instance, involves the use of Young Living Essential Oils on the spinal column to penetrate pores and facilitate relaxation for the whole body.
When muscles' fibers part ever so slightly, blood flows efficiently and healing begins. At Healing Arts Awareness, licensed massage therapist Rob Warfield creates this space within muscles by working across the fibers—a technique appropriately dubbed cross-fiber. Rob often integrates innovative methods such as cross-fiber strokes, acupressure (trigger-point work), and stretching into his massage therapy sessions, depending on whether his clients are sore from a tough week, experiencing the physical challenges of pregnancy, or dealing with chronic muscular disorders. And of course, Rob can also deploy these specialized maneuvers to boost the healing effects of more traditional Swedish, sports, and pregnancy massages. Relaxation and healing is furthered with the soothing sounds of tropical raindrops with crickets or oceanwaves crashing on shore.
