Stress. Poor circulation. Limited range of motion. All of that can slip away once one of the licensed therapists at Elements Massage gets involved. Each week, the studio opens up hundreds of massage appointments, which represent opportunities to simply relax or rid oneself of a range of issues. Each therapist has trained in deep tissue and swedish massage, and many have experience in other techniques?from prenatal therapy to hot stone massage. But before they ever knead a muscle or activate the body's secret levitation mode, the therapists consult closely with each client, pinpointing his or her issues and coming up with the best possible treatment plan.
Licensed massage therapist Jess opened her bodywork studio, Hands on Healing, LLC, this year in West Jordan to help clients relax and de-stress from everyday life. She offers multiple massage modalities, including shiatsu, deep tissue, and prenatal massage, to relieve chronic aches and pains in a soothing atmosphere. Stop in for a calming Swedish massage, or try a pain-targeting reflexology foot massage, which works on specific areas of the foot believed to correspond with different organ and muscle groups.
All too often, a massage studio can feel like a revolving door operation, shuffling clients in and out as quickly as possible. Not at Earth Angels Massage & Bodywork. Licensed massage therapist Erika Martin begins each session with an in-depth consultation to discuss medical history and sideline tension at its source. She then blends such techniques as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote relaxation and stimulate the immune system. Therapeutic hot stones are also available.
Sontae Massage's motto, "In a world of chaos, a place of calm," aptly describes the serene massage studio. Licensed massage therapist Aleshia Easton facilitates feelings of calmness with a slate of bodywork treatments such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages. She also offers craniosacral therapy, and sells essential oils from Dotera so her clients can carve out a little tranquil oasis in their own homes.
At Utah Body Therapies, Inc., the massage therapists don?t just squirt out some oil and hastily get to work. First, they sit down with their clients and talk about their goals in undergoing massage therapy. Then, the bodywork specialists help clients ease pain and promote wellness with a variety of massage modalities. Their sports-injury massages help deal with pain, inflammation, or numbness so clients quickly can get back to their sports routines or just bench-press the massage table right there on the spot.
The physician-supervised technicians at Dry Creek Laser and Aesthetics knead out muscle stiffness with a classic Swedish massage aided by soothing, heated stones. Healing hands apply long, fluid strokes of varying depth, stimulating circulation to spread oxygen and vital nutrients to every corner of the corpus, helping to naturally cleanse bodily byways of toxins, lactic acid, and clumps of dried leaves. Stress and stiffness are swiftly shooed away with concentrated attention on areas of tension or soreness, providing relief from strains and spasms and restoring joint suppleness. The warm rocks help to melt frigid muscles faster, allowing the technician to access the deepest muscular recesses without applying extra pressure; heated, all-natural massage oil keeps the skin suit soft and human hinges from rusting in the cold.
