Licensed massage therapist Adil Panton, the mastermind behind Healing Arts Touch, uses energetic touch to move his clients toward calm, health, and well-being. More than two decades of experience and training in Eastern practices guide both his hands and his practice, which focuses on five types of massage and on qigong, a Chinese approach to self-healing that incorporates focused breathing and meditative movement. Panton uses intuition to personalize his massages in a holistic manner, helping his clients heal not only their bodies but also their minds, spirits, and exoskeletons.

Additionally, the center's staff can pamper visitors with facials and body scrubs intended to restore the skin's naturally radiant glow, and waxing treatments that leave it as smooth as a freshly shaved statue.
