Within the confines of Bodyworks's soothing, peach-colored walls, certified massage therapist Kristii Adrian and her set of skillful fingers knead away tension and other body-bothering ailments. Kristii's simple Swedish massage reduces stress and increases blood flow throughout the body, stimulating lazy lymphatic systems with long, connective strokes and motivational speeches. Athletes looking to increase their range of motion or magicians looking to prevent painful card-trick injuries can opt for the deep-tissue massage, which soothes specific muscles with targeted, pressured kneads. When in need, Kristii calls upon her secret underground network of massage therapist colleagues to help alleviate the most complicated aches.
