Licensed massage therapist Cassandra Dunlap has studied more than a dozen techniques in hopes of healing and rejuvenating her clients with integrative massage therapy. Rather than forcing each client to select a single massage style, such as reflexology or trigger-point therapy, she combines modalities based on individual ailments, recurring symptoms, or health goals. Before every session, Cassandra consults with clients to learn about any health issues—from chronic migraines to pulled muscles—and tailors her pressure and style to help ameliorate symptoms and reduce stress. House-made blends of aromatic oils inspire emotions and bolster positive moods; Pep Talk blends peppermint and sweet orange to bolster confidence, and Energize mixes lemon, rosemary, peppermint, and notes from the Rocky theme song. The spa's serene setting showcases a stone path winding through an indoor garden and an office decorated with ambient lighting and warm yellow walls.

For 60 transcendental minutes, a skilled therapist works out deep tension and unties perplexing Flemish knots from sinews’ substrata with the targeted pressure of dexterous digits. You'll leave the Advantage Massage Centers' premises with muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Shiatsu Renu Massage’s experienced muscle mollifiers tame tendon tension and curb chronic aches with a variety of soul- and sinew-soothing kneads.

Ideal for relieving stress and habitual stiffness, deep-tissue massage can also aid in the healing of neck and back injuries caused by everyday stressors such as crouching over computers and pushing Volkswagens up narrow staircases.
