Amazing Hands translates the complex body language of its clients with a diverse selection of massage styles and techniques expertly deployed to suit each body’s aches and tensions. At each location, a team of licensed massage therapists harnesses eastern and western techniques to oust muscle tension and detoxify tendons as clients relax on heated tables. Therapists specialize in helping to heal shoulder, knee, and back injuries with a combination of invigorating massage strokes and deep-tissue pressure, which can also help break up scar tissue. They use up to nine essential oils to stoke simultaneous mind and body relaxation, much like practicing yoga or sharing a hammock with a hypnotist.

The wellness center integrates mind, body, and spirit with massage therapy. Modalities include classic Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and cranial-sacral massage. Some methods use heated stones, breath work, or psychotherapeutic elements to relax and unlock deep-seated tension. The center also catalyzes healing with counseling, personal coaching, and yoga and meditation sessions all bundled together using rubber cement.
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 expertise also includes bodywork techniques such as myofascial release therapy and reiki, which was named using the remaining tiles in a Scrabble game.

An experienced massage therapist understands that exorcizing pain requires not only an appreciation for muscles and nerves but also for emotional and spiritual release—and that's exactly what the experienced therapists at Applause Therapeutic Massage offer in the form of traditional and muscle-balancing massages at their new Wadsworth Boulevard location. Linda Thorpe—the center's owner—and her team of skilled therapists follow this practice closely, leveraging her degree in psychology to address the physical and emotional health of their clients. And at the end of each session, they also suggest at-home methods to reduce muscle pain, from simple exercises to advanced forms of yelling at the TV.
