Jennifer Niesel talks about massage with the kind of reverence others might reserve for a priceless work of art. From the first stroke of any of her custom massages, it’s clear that practices what she preaches. Her artistry extends to specialty modalities such as her hot-stone massage, during which warm stones become extensions of her hands as they render muscles more malleable than a bar of gold Play-Doh.
