Shelby Frederick, a licensed massage therapist, has a repertoire of nine massage modalities, which she uses skillfully to knead away aches and ease tension. Each of these treatments, which include Swedish and hot-stone massages, can be supplemented with paraffin dips, sugar scrubs, and other add-ons.
