Fingers slowly manipulate the muscle fibers along clients' spines at Tree Of Life, releasing tension and seemingly making stress evaporate as they move down the back. This is a Swedish massage, a technique that the three massage therapists at Tree of Life know extremely well. While encouraging relaxation through these lighter massages is certainly a part of their repertoires, each also has a host of other modalities in which they specialize. Among these, deep tissue massages ameliorate aches and pains, while romantic couples sessions make it unnecessary to hold your own hand during the massage.
Though the words "deep-tissue massage" often call to mind strenuous pressure on sore muscles, the certified staffers at Tamara's Touch manage to achieve beneficial results while using a gentle approach. To coax stress from bodies, they manipulate muscles using Japanese-style acupressure techniques during shiatsu massage, and use polarity massages to rebalance the body's energy, relieving clients of the need to sleep on a teeter-totter. The crew also takes special care of pregnant clients, seniors, and athletes.
Jayni Chana realized her passion for beauty at a young age, when she watched in awe as her aunt transformed herself from “just rolled out of bed” to “ready to change the world.” As she grew older, she became known as the go-to beautician among her friends and family and even began practicing advanced techniques such as threading on herself. Jayni went on to gain experience and perspective as a model and beauty professional with a specialty in portfolio photography.
She stores all of this experience inside Jayni's Beauty Box, the spa in which she sculpts bridal hairdos and removes clingy flannel shirts with waxing treatments. Thanks to her early practice, Jayni has also become an expert at threading, a process that uses twisted cotton threads to grip hair and pull it out from the root.
