Transformation II Therapeutics’ dexterous muscle manipulators knead tendons into relaxed, ache-free states with gentle and penetrating strokes. Clients can unload stresses with a Swedish massage session of soft, long movements, friction techniques, and rhythmic manipulations that ease tissues frazzled by heavy lifting or excessive shrugging. Deep-tissue massage recipients bid adieu to nesting muscle knots and aches through powerful strokes that focus on manipulating connective tissues. To foster a relaxed environment, each therapy room is filled with soothing melodies, scented with delicate fragrances, bathed in low candlelight, and accompanied by encouraging words from a whispering drill sergeant.

A stress-free oasis in the heart of the Congaree Vista neighborhood, Studio 29 Massage offers a serene counterpoint to the bustling activity just outside its doors. Inside the studio’s private treatment room, licensed massage therapist Kristin Ehlers assuages bodily aches and pains with personalized massages. Baroque accents punctuate the walls of each serene room, which glow in the same hue as relics from a Granny Smith apple-bob. Kristin's more relaxing techniques draw on five modalities—including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone—that tend to sore muscles as dim lights, flickering candles, and aromatherapy oils promote a calming experience for all the senses.

The licensed and insured massage therapists at My Magic Hands vanquish tension and soreness from bodies of virtually every age, from infants to seniors. Before kneading out localized knots with focal-point therapy or ranging over the entire back with long Swedish strokes, the staff listens carefully as clients describe their particular issues or how they fell asleep on a pineapple. Unlike many massage offices, My Magic Hands accommodates parties of six people or more for actual parties, be they bachelorette celebrations or birthday fetes, during which the staff massages each guest.
