State-licensed massage therapist (license #004958) A. Malaika Sharp cultivates relaxation and targets each client's unique issues with a focused menu of services. She can shoo everyday stress away through basic relaxation massages, but she’s as focused on function as she is on feeling good. An avid martial artist and cyclist, Sharp consults with all clients to understand the ways they use their bodies for work and recreation. That helps her pick out distinct patterns of motion and coax bad habits or stored tension out of muscles, whether she’s targeting chronic aches through deep-tissue techniques or helping athletes recover from strenuous duck-duck-goose training through sports massage. Or, for those suffering from headaches and migraines, she can incorporate trigger-point therapy. Sharp is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and is certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.

You won't find fluffy robes or soft slippers at A Matter of Touch. That's because founder C.J. Johnson is more concerned with effectively relieving pain and muscle tension than with creating a spa ambience. A licensed massage therapist, Johnson consults with clients to discuss their individual needs before setting to work with deep-tissue kneads or soothing Swedish strokes. In addition to dissipating pain, the customized treatments can improve circulation and relieve anxiety.
