Licensed massage therapists Marielle Shoffstall and Vincent Cicchetti join forces under the guise of Therapy Touch Massage, where they focus on treatments that assuage stress and reduce pain. Their soothing repertoire includes a signature custom massage, gentle Swedish strokes, and a more intense deep-tissue massage that targets buried aches. They also relieve mommies-to-be with prenatal treatments, which work to alleviate common maternity issues such as stiff necks, back pain, and the inability to hula-hoop. A variety of Spaaahh Therapies can enhance each treatment with pressure-point reflexology or hot-stone-and-bamboo fusion.
At Laser Trim Contours, a team works to stress the importance of healthy diet and exercise in weight loss. They also understand how difficult weight loss can be even with proper nutrition, and wield Zerona lasers to help melt fat cells. Inside the soothing, spa-like environs, clients get comfy in their own private treatment rooms that block encroaching eyes and clumsy boom-mic operators.
The benefits of massage are immense: it improves the immune system, alleviates chronic pain, and even reduces high blood pressure. Massage therapist Chris Cherry aims to improve his clients’ total wellness with 60- or 90-minute massage with salt scrubs and full-body mud masks. He delivers massages in his office, or travels to clients’ homes or bus stops for a relaxing session.
