Licensed massage therapist Lily MacFaydian tends to backs in a private studio nestled inside Acupuncture Works. Here, Lily comforts muscles and restores vitality with a range of treatments. Gliding Swedish massages boost circulation and chase away stress, and deep-tissue sessions knead the tautness out of pulled muscles. Lily makes sessions extra relaxing by applying hot towels and essential oils, not by leaving out a ventriloquist?s dummy with eyes that seem to follow you around the room.
Samantha Sargent, the experienced, licensed massage therapist at Synergistic Health, soothes sore muscles and relaxes away cares with custom massages. Each muscle-melting session kicks off with an initial consultation to evaluate desired outcomes and unearth medical history, allowing the therapist to create a personalized massage or ghostwrite the memoirs of back muscles. Soft, ambient music plays as Samantha’s expert hands attack aches and pains with techniques from many traditions, including medical and sports massage, acupressure, tui na, and Thai massage. For some types of massage, the therapist smoothes light oil over skin to ease friction and help build empathy for salad greens. Before or after their massage, guests can sip tea amid the tranquil reception area’s gentle orange walls and soft lighting. Synergistic Health bolsters freshly de-stressed bodies with its own line of organic, handmade beauty products. The lotions and balms eschew parabens in favor of all-natural ingredients, such as coconut oil, beeswax, and fresh-squeezed sun rays. Each potion is designed to exfoliate and pamper skin, outfitting faces, lips, and cuticles with younger-looking appearances.
