Karen Gray, an extensively trained and nationally certified massage therapist, kneads tense muscles with a variety of massage techniques that reduce discomfort and relieve stress. Before undergoing 60-minute sessions, twined torsos sit down and speak with Karen to discuss any persisting aches, daily stresses, previous injuries, and conspiracy theories. With her breadth of personal knowledge, Karen crafts a customized massage to address her customers' concerns and give them a soothing massage session. Depending on the results of the consultation and the pull of the moon on the tides, locked muscles may receive a traditional, relaxing Swedish massage, a thorough deep-tissue hand pressing, an energy balancing via gentle reiki hand placements, or a combination of these and other massage methods.

Melinda Smith started dreaming about feet in high school. Confused by the recurring visions, she asked a teacher for advice and began to study reflexology—the practice of gently massaging pressure points along the feet in order to promote well-being across the entire body. Melinda’s first encounter with the healing bodywork technique cemented her resolve to study massage therapy, and she eventually founded her own studio with numerous modalities on the menu.
The spa includes four private treatment rooms, each of which is designed to channel one of the four elements (earth, fire, air, and water) that Aristotle discovered with his particle accelerator. The rooms’ different energies serve different purposes—with the earth room aimed at relaxing minds and the fire room intended to cultivate inner strength. Outside these rooms, the spa's aestheticians and technicians incorporate botanically derived Aveda products into skincare treatments and paint nails with chip-resistant OPI gel polishes.
