During your hour-long session, Namasté's resident knot-noodler Jess Watson will use one of two therapeutic massage modalities to raise sore souls from the depths of chronic pain and lingering stiffness. A relaxation massage combines elements of deep tissue along with a medley of movement and point-based techniques. A deep-tissue massage, on the other massaging mitt, eschews chillaxing in favor of releasing muscle restrictions. This deep, penetrating style alleviates chronic pain, improves posture, boosts flexibility, and markedly enhances your ability to smell time.
Commanding nine varieties of massage, licensed therapist David Lusignan expels bodily tensions using all-natural creams and oils and therapeutic techniques customized to each patient's particular aches and pains. A pretreatment interview provides a forum for patients to discuss their immediate needs, long-term goals, and the progress of their screenplay, allowing Lusignan to select an appropriate massage regimen from within his cranial catalog. Deep-tissue and Swedish massage relieve the naturally accumulated aches that lodge themselves in muscles and connective tissue, as myofascial release employs slow, gentle pressure to free bound-up soft tissues and restore posture, circulation, and range of motion. Recurring muscle spasms subside with neuromuscular therapy that targets common trigger points to cure the chronic pains responsible for stiff necks, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, and compulsive jazz hands, and orthopedic and sports massages soothe tissues and tendons left pained by past injuries.
Licensed massage therapist Jean Kirby sends soothing ripples across muscle ponds with her therapeutic bodywork. In the comfort of her cozy studio, Jean can boost circulation with flowing Swedish strokes, or administer firmer deep-tissue pressure for lower-layer aches. Bodywork may also be paired with indulgent add-ons such as hot stones, aromatherapy, and Jean's personal blend of massage lotion.
At The Green Tea Spa, clients are paired with licensed massage therapists who specialize in specific massage modalities and customize treatments to assuage individual aches and pains. Once clients ease between warm blankets and crisp sheets atop a heated massage table, the massage therapist sets to work to relieve lower-back irritation, shoulder pain, and chronic ice-cream headaches. The therapist digs into tense musculature with hypoallergenic lotions and creams, frequently checking in with guests to ensure their utmost comfort throughout the experience.
Specializing in sports massage, therapist Christopher Benoit applies his athleticism and formal training to a variety of relaxation modalities. A long-distance cyclist himself, Benoit helps to keep athletes limber during muscle-stiffening cold seasons with foam-fingered kneads designed to facilitate healing, improve athletic performance, and increase range of motion. Benoit approaches massage therapy from a perspective of wellness, helping to circulate endorphins, nutrients, and oxygen throughout the body as he bolsters the immune system. Dim lighting gently illuminates light-green walls as clients lie on heated towels and surrender to soothing strokes augmented by hypoallergenic massage gels.
