The holistic therapists at Imperial Foot Care alleviate stress throughout the body by combining massaging strokes with the pinpointed prods of reflexology. Working on the premise that certain areas of the hands, feet, and ears correlate with areas of the body, reflexology practitioners apply focused pressure to the extremities to help balance energy pathways and reduce pain, diminishing the need for chemical compounds or high-risk body-switching procedures. Ensconced in a private treatment room, therapists' trained hands glide over muscles and bodily meridians in their effort to increase circulation and minimize the pain associated with stress, tension headaches, arthritis, and back problems.
At Studio 1211, Barbara George taps into ancient Eastern and Egyptian techniques to soothe and beautify patrons. Inside a private treatment room, she aims to relieve pain and improve the nervous system with reflexology and shiatsu that applies focused pressure to mapped-out areas along the feet, scalp, and neck. The aromatherapy educator boasts 20 years of anti-aging product experience; during the spa's signature Egyptian facial, a milk-and-honey mask makes visages gleam back to life, wrinkles collapse into whispers, and cows and bees look on in bewilderment.

When not untying muscular knots, the therapist uses her hands for another hobby that promulgates peace?making scented soy candles.
