Massage can be a powerful tool for promoting calm and relaxation throughout the entire body. That being said, Amanda Coleman mainly pursues the therapeutic possibilities of massage, using treatments to help individuals suffering from chronic aches and pains. At Bliss Bodywork & Massage Therapy, the licensed therapist specializes in combining deep-tissue work with acupressure techniques as she addresses the tightly knotted muscles that can be caused by stress or injury. This isn't the only tool at Amanda's disposal, though. She can also utilize anything from Swedish and hot-stone modalities to rejuvenating aromatherapy as she attempts to promote healing and a better quality of life for her clients.
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.

The licensed massage therapists at Heal-Thy-Body Massage Therapy offer a wide array of bodywork. Each massage modality has a different goal, whether that's relaxing muscles or contouring physiques. Lypossages break down cellulite structures and improve skin tone, yielding tighter tummies, firmer rears, and more svelte shadows. Thai massages take place on the floor, where their guided stretching improves clients' range of motion, and classic Swedish massages banish tension with smooth, flowing strokes.
