Broadway's licensed massage therapists and aestheticians refresh patrons with body treatments and skincare. His-and-her packages coddle couple-halves with 105 minutes of full-body pampering, ideal for a Valentine’s Day gift or moment of respite from a romantic game of Duck, Duck, Goose. Swirls of organic body polish brighten and hydrate skin with a blend of berries, fruit oils, and antioxidant-rich pomegranate or panda-attracting eucalyptus infusions. The 45-minute treatment concludes with a moisturizing overcoat of 100% pure eucalyptus or pomegranate body cream. During each customized 60-minute massage, therapist Brian Robinson uses a vegan, organic body cream to glide long, flowing strokes across overwrought muscles and scrawl movie spoilers onto clients’ backs.

A car crash leaves a woman with chronic, excruciating back pain. Her doctors put her on potent pain meds, but her agony persists and drags her into a deep depression. After lingering around a physical and mental rock bottom for eight years and desperate for relief, she pays a visit to Hans Levy. Using Bowenwork therapy, he helps her get off her painkillers and begin to wriggle free of depression in just three treatments.
After completing formal training in physical therapy and massage in Germany in 1982, Hans Levy—who split his childhood years between Germany and Colombia—embarked on a new chapter of his life in the United States, where he continued to add to his repertoire of bodywork services by studying yoga, shiatsu, and Bowenwork therapy. In 2005, Hans harnessed his abilities to open a refrigerator door with his mind and establish Fluid Motion Therapies. Since then, he's enlisted the help of fellow licensed therapists to provide clients with physical and psychological rehabilitation through services ranging from massages to hypnotherapy.

The studio also hosts yoga sessions that include hot yoga, gentle warm classes, and black-light yoga sessions that ramp up practices with special music and lighting.
