Certified massage therapist Kalindi Carlson believes that many of life's more common ailments, such as stress and anxiety, stem from a misaligned body. Her remedy for restoring bodily alignment is bodywork therapy. At her studio, she gives relaxing Swedish and hot-stone massages as well as more therapeutic deep-tissue and neuromuscular massages. Her expertise also includes bodywork techniques such as myofascial release therapy and reiki, which was named using the remaining tiles in a Scrabble game.

Symmetry Therapeutic Massage Spa sprang from the dream of two friends and fellow massage therapists who sought to demonstrate that massage could be used to better physical health. They started small, with a one-room office behind a Pilates studio. Soon, however, they found themselves juggling more appointments than they could handle. Just two years later, they moved into a sprawling new sports-partnered studio, creating a new source of relief for athletes whose massages previously consisted of lying in the middle of the turf during a game.
Today, Symmetry's founding pair leads 30 other licensed therapists, each with her own unique background and specialty. These practitioners treat clients with more than a dozen massage modalities, including neuromuscular massage, which relies on static pressure to relieve area-specific pain, and Thai Yoga. Services such as soothing steam therapy and invigorating dry body-brushing augment the offerings.
During the studio's semi-private workshops, including couples' workshops, the therapists teach clients how to perform their massage techniques at home. This allows clients to connect with their partners during couples massages whenever they have some private time at home or a long wait in a grocery-store line together.
