Licensed massage therapist Caitrin Rames, LMT, specializes in shiatsu bodywork, a form of massage that focuses on balancing the body's chi in order to treat internal ailments and imbalances. Rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, shiatsu massage employs focused pressure along the body's meridians to heal backs strained from kneeling in rice paddies or from pole vaulting over the Great Wall.

Sara Stoddard, the licensed massage therapist at Compassionate Wellness, combines Thai bodywork and traditional deep-tissue massage to deliver relaxation and healing to stressed sinews and muscles. The treatment begins with a oneness blessing that is said to allow for a transfer of energy by touch, intensify awareness, and pardon a lifetime of sneezes. Patrons recline upon a futon-like floor mat as oils soothe the back, neck, and feet, and stretches and passive yoga positions boost flexibility and bloodflow. Rhythmic compressions both relieve tension and release caged endorphins back into the wild. Patients should wear comfortable slacks, such as workout pants or cashmere Zubaz, and upper-body coverage will be provided for ladies.

Cindy Larson, the massage therapist behind Total Relaxation, has relieved aching bodies with a variety of hands-on techniques since 1997, including at the Special Olympics in 2006 and at Iowa State University's dance marathon in 2009. At her practice, she discusses the ins and outs of different massage modalities with clients before sessions, helping them choose the most beneficial one for them. Relaxing Swedish massages alleviate tension with light pressure, whereas trigger-point and muscle-release techniques work to unclench tense muscles and constricted fascia. Cindy specializes in relieving hip, back, and shoulder pain, as well as headaches and pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
