The therapists at Masso the Art of Healing in Clarksburg don't just customize their services to each client's needs—they also assist them with plans for continuing their therapy at home. All of this is in service to their goal of helping clients reach a lasting state of relaxation without having to spend a week locked in the cotton-ball closet. Though they specialize in easing muscular tension with Swedish massage, Masso's therapists also perform more than a dozen other body services—ranging from Russian massage to craniosacral therapy to body scrubs. Additionally, they get kinks out of connective tissue with myofascial release, and cater to the relaxation needs of expectant mothers with prenatal massage.
Just as a translator can seamlessly slip from language to language, licensed massage therapist Mary Ann Zenter can effortlessly shift through various massage techniques, tailoring her treatments to meet each individual's needs. She can loosen muscles with broad, soothing strokes that dissolve general tension, or employ methods such as cross-fiber frictioning and compression to work out deep-seated pain. Patients can also request reflexology sessions, which work to boost overall health.
Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.
