Massage therapist Barb’s background in competitive fitness and her intuitive understanding of the mind and body informs her compassionate, holistic approach to massage. As she kneads aching muscles in a wide variety of modalities, Barb continually adjusts her technique in response to the client’s breathing, movements, and spontaneous operatic renditions of Figaro. In addition to common modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, Barb performs foot reflexology, Thai massages, and Esalen massages, whose slow-moving rhythm reflects the body’s internal rhythms, balances chakras. Whatever the relaxation technique, she keeps 30-minute intervals between each session to ensure that each client gets both a full appointment and her complete attention.

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa provides luxurious, relaxing treatments performed by licensed massage therapists and aestheticians. A 50-minute hot stone massage ($110) uses heated stones to relieve muscle tension, which allows for greater manipulation and destressification. The massage is followed by a ten-minute hot towel foot exfoliation massage ($15). After tired leg paddles are enveloped in warm, fuzzy towels, they are reinvigorated with an exfoliation and moisturizing treatment. Or, opt for a microdermabrasion, a non-invasive procedure that gently buffs away dead cells and cicada husks latched onto the skin's surface to reveal a newer and healthier happiness. The treatment helps to erase spots, marks, and scars while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and breakouts.
