Pangaea Massage owner Clare Wilson, a licensed massage therapist with more than 12 years of well-kneaded experience, tends to the flesh of clients by wielding Swedish, deep-tissue, and sport-related strokes. In the integrated Swedish massage, Wilson combines several Scandinavian methods, including long, rolling strokes and the gentle humanism of filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. The deep-tissue treatment delves deeper in order to tenderize muscles and stimulate blood flow, while the sport massage addresses issues born out of repetitive movements and never-ending penny hunts.
