Ann Buckner's Massage Therapy's eponymous practitioner is a proud grandmother, but she's as active as any young person on the block. A kids' Zumba instructor and graduate of Healing Hands Institute, Ann infuses clients with her brand of revitalization using therapeutic, deep-tissue, and Thai massage. Before she performs therapy, Ann assesses the body's skeletal structure and posture to find out which modalities will work best for each individual.
The therapists at Body Awakening Massage and Wellness Center will work with you to determine the most beneficial techniques to use during each session. They certainly have a lot to choose from, with expertise in everything from craniosacral therapy to Japanese shiatsu massage. When they aren't soothing tension with deep-tissue pressure or relaxing hot stones, the therapists tend to the body's other needs with detoxifying wraps that infuse skin with nutrients and break down fat cells, reducing appearance of cellulite and aid in inch loss.

Lansdale Massage Therapy and Wellness provides hours of relaxation by combining some of their most popular services into elaborate packages. A milk-and-honey exfoliating wrap joins a Swedish massage and herbal skin treatment in one package, and another unites an organic foot-reflexology session with an organic facial. The wellness center even has a certified health coach on staff to guide clients toward better eating habits and improved relationships with their friends, family members, and that one referee who keeps making lousy calls.
