Regina Quinn and her team of licensed massage therapists at Breathe Massage & Wellness send waves of relaxation rolling through bodies with soothing, holistic massage strokes. Drawing from her thorough knowledge and passion for traditional Chinese medicine, Regina engineers a roster of signature massages. The Liquid Body radiates calming heat with warm olive oil and hot stones to oust tension and clinging mermaids left over from tropical vacations. She and her staff further promote holistic wellness during services such as Amma therapy and chakra balancing.
The Lounge employs a fusion methodology during each relaxation massage. Specialists employ modified Swedish-massage actions, including long strokes and kneading motions, to warm up muscle tissue, address each client's unique needs, and impart the spirit of the Viking. The 70-minute service also includes a body scrub, utilizing sugar or salt that sloughs off dead skin as it hydrates heads, necks, shoulders, and feet. Or clients may choose to have the therapist shoo away tension from tired tootsies with precise pressure during the foot treatment that accompanies the 90-minute option. Additionally, warm towels loosen tense sinews, and a choice of body butter helps clients slink through turnstiles with ease.
Most people wouldn’t associate the military with relaxation, and neither does former army man Jason Fells. During his six-year stint in the employ of Uncle Sam, he dreamed of dedicating himself to healing. Today, with characteristic discipline and precision, he soothes bodies through massage, clears up complexions with LED light therapy, and tightens elasticity with anti-aging facial massages. When he's not redirecting chi through reiki, he redistributes calories as a personal trainer and tries to understand the jumping jack's deep-seated resentment toward jump ropes as an exercise psychologist.
Massage therapists deft hands ease relaxation into bodies via a range of modalities that help to melt physical and emotional stress, detoxify the body, and diminish aches. The team at the studio strives to uproot embedded pain during massages and may recruit the soothing powers of hot stones to further assuage tension. To augment massages' therapeutic effects, they administer treatments such as hydrating scrubs, body wraps, and raindrop therapy—a noninvasive bodywork technique that harnesses aromatherapy to guide energy back into balance.
