As a Gulf War veteran and Air Force reservist, Rene' Johnson knows stress better than most. She draws on this experience, as well as a comprehensive education in anatomy to rewire the body's circuitry and promote wellness. Though her specialties are in orthopedic, sports, and rehabilitative massage, deep-tissue and Swedish techniques are also available to promote relaxation. When not mending muscles, Rene' enjoys travel, spending time with friends and family, and massaging knots out of low-hanging tree limbs.

Amidst the nail treatments are spa mani-pedis, which are a relaxing way to get your nails painted and your toes counted. Trained staffers also apply custom facials that address specific issues on the face, thereby restoring soft textures and colors that advertise health and vitality. Massage therapists soften tense muscles and instill feelings of relaxation with focused and deliberate techniques during Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages.

At Massage Sanctuary, nationally certified massage therapist Brandon Woolard offers his clients the opportunity to relax and receive personalized massages in a soothing atmosphere. After initial consultations?complete with a box full of stress stones if customers need some preliminary unwinding?guests undress to their own comfort levels and fit between sheets, ready for calming massages. As he works, Brandon encourages his customers to speak up about comfort levels in case the heated table is too hot or the aromatherapy ostrich too pungent and squawking. Brandon soothes backs and muscles with a variety of modalities, incorporating Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, and aromatherapy methods into his massages. Afterward, complimentary mints and water rejuvenate the senses as customers, suspended in massage euphoria, go home, take hot baths or showers, and maintain relaxed states.
National board-certified massage therapist Bess Wood is quick to stress that her treatments aren't what you'd typically find in a spa. The focus at Therapeutic Arts isn't solely on relaxation; it's also on finding medically inspired solutions for chronic and acute pain. To that end, Bess specializes in a therapeutic massage that combines deep-tissue, trigger-point, and neuromuscular techniques to heal all kinds of injuries and ailments. The profound sense of relaxation that comes with each treatment is just another perk.
