Shiatsu is a Japanese term that means simply “finger pressure”, which is exactly how this massage modality releases tension from muscular tissue. Licensed massage therapist Robert Ellestad opened his practice to bring the relaxing, therapeutic qualities of Shiatsu massage to bodies of all shapes and sizes. In addition to this pressure-point-focused style, he soothes bodies with the gentle series of Swedish massage strokes. His Thai massage sessions incorporate a series of facilitated yoga-like stretches that work out stiff muscles and joints while the client lies on a mat or hovers slightly on a flying carpet.

Licensed massage therapist Hope Wilds banishes soreness and stress from muscles through therapeutic-massage and foot reflexology treatments. Deft hands bear down on aches using myofascial-release techniques and warm layers of tissue with gentle kneading in therapeutic massages. Alternatively, a foot reflexology treatment pinpoints and manipulates nodes on clients' paws, aiming to bring relief to corresponding areas elsewhere in the body, as well as cause a faint itch behind the knee of a distant newscaster. Personalized kneading on each reflex zone may evaporate tension from its analogous corporal site, leaving figures slackened and soothed.
