When Vanessa Caram was working in a physical therapist's office, she couldn't help but notice how much massage helped speed up patients' recovery. This prompted her to become a licensed massage therapist and start her own practice, A Nu Yu Massage, soon after. There, she helps clients manage pain and tension without using medication or converting a medieval rack into a bed. Her specialty is alleviating chronic pain symptoms associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. However, she also performs services such as deep-tissue and Swedish massage, which can be enhanced with aromatherapy and hot stones.
On their quest to help their clients achieve good health, the therapists at Origins Thai Spa deploy a careful blend of 14 Eastern and Western massage techniques. Most of their practice revolves around Thai massage, which combines deep stretching and acupressure with pressure from the therapist’s elbows, knees, and feet to activate the body's 10 major energy channels. Alternatively, Eastern-inspired ayurvedic massage uses three different oils to trigger the three doshas, or the body's three main energy pathways. During the four-hands couples massage, two therapists work on one client at the same time, using four hands to help improve circulation, promote relaxation, and inspire as many as eight high-fives.
The experienced healers and licensed massage therapists at Thai Wellness Center believe that the body must be treated as a whole if it is to thrive. So they seek to link the mind, body, and spirit and stimulate natural healing during their holistic therapies. Depending on a client's needs, they can choose from different levels of treatments, which include relaxation, prevention, therapeutic, advanced bodywork, and medical massage, in ascending order. Within these levels, their vast array of massage modalities range from Swedish and sports massage to Thai therapeutic, Thai reflexology, and trigger point massage.
Clients can relax and forget about the incident with the overflowing garbage bag during a 90-minute aromatherapy massage, or get help with chronic neck and back pain during an orthopedic massage, which aims to release tight muscles in the upper back. With a belief that self-care is one of the most important requirements of overall health and happiness, Thai Wellness Center helps clients feel whole and refreshed.
