Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.
At The Baah Spa, clients are encouraged to relinquish their worries and indulge in an afternoon of escape and self-pampering. Piloting the sojourns into bliss are professional massage practitioners who apply firm pressure, soothing strokes, and hot stones to facilitate relaxation and quiet revelry. The spa offers Swedish, therapeutic, and hot-stone massages, and they combine all three during the spa’s signature massage, which also features the client’s choice of aromatherapy oils.
Quality of Life Massage & Wellness is a destination for those who suffer from issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue. Licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with deep-tissue massage, swedish massage, and a slew of other modalities.
