Select the reflexology massage and a massage mastermind will conduct a 10-finger ensemble in performing a 30-minute opus in the orchestra pits of your body's reflex points. Pain will be extinguished, the soul and body will be harmonized, and all remaining worries about why the dinosaurs went extinct will vanish. If you are in need of a longer knead, you can select the one-hour relaxation massage. This massage uses a combination of techniques customized to your back's bothers in order to restore your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
The tranquil environs of Healing Hands by Sherrie take visitors on a journey, almost literally. The recently remodeled rooms inside the 2,000-square-foot, two-story facility double as an international tour—the lobby is decorated to resemble a South African rainforest, and other chambers transport clients to a variety of destinations with Chinese, Indian, Brazilian and Native American themes. There, staff members administer soothing massages, perform steam herbal treatments, and detoxify clients with wrap-less body wraps. Healing Hands by Sherrie has expanded an additional 1,400 square feet and will be adding a fondue cafe later in the year catering to couples, and spa parties or just for fun!
