At White Lotus Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Alexander Huber Sciolino draws from different modalities to customize each treatment to his clients' liking. With help from fellow therapist Kelly Zywiczynski Giles, Alexander works with clients on either table or chair to address issues such as anxiety, chronic pain, or sports injuries acquired vicariously through the TV.
Clients dictate the particulars of each session, deciding whether the massage therapist uses scented oils, puts on music, and sings the high or low harmony to "Amazing Grace." Therapists follow proper draping protocols to put clients at ease as they apply light pressure, deep strokes, and hot stones to ailing muscles.
Kim Brillon earned her license as a practical nurse in 1981, and in the ensuing decades she gained a comprehensive understanding of physical injuries and their symptoms. This understanding gradually led her to eschew pharmaceuticals in favor of holistic massage therapy. Today, as a licensed massage therapist, reiki healer, and integrated energy therapist, Brillon kneads out stresses and aches with techniques tailored to her individual clients. With gentle strokes, firm pressures, and stones that melt tension faster than the sun’s indistinguishable supply of wax candles, she encourages clients to better communicate with their bodies.
