Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.
From peaceful spa confines, Oriental Retreat & Spa's licensed and certified practitioners carefully ply their rejuvenating trade and erase tension from the body's ledgers. Customers can embark on a roughly 60-minute journey to healing with today's deal. The 45-minute chi gong tuina massage uses traditional Chinese principles and the knowledge of acupressure points to unblock the body's chi channels, thereby eliminating pain and convincing the corpus to properly balance itself on the seesaw of life. This precise, thorough technique is especially good at treating stress, back pain, tight muscles, headaches, and injuries from fight scenes that involve a lot of wires. After the massage, guests can either give their plum pluckers a soothing hand paraffin treatment, or pamper their sandcastle kickers by immersing them in the reviving waters of an herbal foot soak.

Joe Lavin, a licensed massage therapist, and Wendy Lavin, a licensed physical therapist, combined their anatomical knowledge to develop the Power of Touch Workshop. The aim of the couples-focused workshop is to foster a lifelong affinity for massage, letting participants both practice massage techniques and experience massage benefits at the hands of their partner. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, sessions promise adequate individual attention and an intimate environment in which to knead away knots and loosen spines. After the workshop, students not only come away with a deeper appreciation for massage and joints looser than a broken door handle, but they also receive lifetime access to Power of Touch’s alumni area, a network of massage resources that includes videos, articles, and additional workshops.
