Tonja Miller, the massage therapist behind Milford Healing Hands, believes that massages are as essential to humans as oil changes are for cars: both keep bodies functioning properly. Inside her studio, Tonja uses massage to boost range of motion and flexibility and treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues, such as back pain and headaches. Her specialties range from classic Swedish massage and deep-tissue techniques to reflexology and reiki sessions, which can help balance energy flow throughout the body. Additional services include pregnancy massage and bamboo massage, a style popular with Milford's giant panda population
Pain specialist Dr. Mazzone of Healing Touch Neurologic Relief Center specializes in neurologic-relief testing and is 1 of only about 225 doctors in the world who specializes in the technique. He and his staff can seek out the sources of maladies such as chronic pain, migraines, and fibromyalgia, and then prescribe an effective NRC treatment plan along with corrective exercises, massage therapy, or nutritional counseling.
Tissue manipulator Elizabeth Peeples owns and operates Massage Therapy and Bodyworks, where tense customers are skillfully kneaded until their muscles are relaxed, their aches are eliminated, and their limbs are refreshingly loosened. Select one of five types of massage—neuromuscular therapy, therapeutic massage, Swedish massage, aromatherapy, or deep-tissue massage—to reward your body for enduring years of the punishing physical comedy required for success in corporate America. Based on a physician's recommendation, Massage Therapy and Bodyworks also offers massage therapy to aid with work-related-injury rehabilitation or automobile-accident recovery. Like a bespoke Batman costume, each massage is tailored to the personal necessities of each patron.
Relaxation doesn’t come naturally to everyone. One of Tonja Miller's regular clients, for example, remembers a time when he could hardly lay his face down on the mattress after a stressful day. Tonja, who co-owns Healing Hands Massage Therapy Group LLC with Joy Kinman, helped him conquer that problem. Born with deformities, she has been a massage-therapy patient since childhood and has witnessed its healing powers firsthand. She’s not the only one—Joy credits her first massage with freeing her of the back pain she had suffered since she was a girl.
As soon as clients enter the studio, Joy and Tonja pay close attention to their gait and stance. Both, it turns out, can indicate strain caused by overexertion or a long commute by rowboat. The lights in the studio’s private rooms soon go dim as the therapists enhance their strokes with warm oils or lotions. For an experience you won’t find in many other spas, try Tonja’s specialty bamboo massage, during which she rolls a heated stalk across sore muscles. More traditional spa treatments such as paraffin dips and refreshing facials round out the service menu, which the duo complements with offerings of tea, coffee, or water.
