A long career in the healthcare field convinced Sherry Tennyson of the restorative power of touch. At Healing Touch Massage Therapy, she puts this into practice, working to restore balance to the body, mind, and soul through massage services. She soothes clients by keeping the lights in her treatment room low and playing a soundtrack rich with the sounds of nature, such as water rushing over rocks or the wind placing an order for a vegetarian pizza.
Nadia Musser has been a licensed massage therapist for 14 years. She studied reflexology and deep tissue muscle therapy, but over the years her toolbox has expanded into the realm of relaxation. At Essential Kneads Massage and Wellness, Nadia taps into both relaxing and therapeutic modalities, all administered in cozy private treatment rooms. Her relaxation massages help clients unwind and forget their stress, while her deep-tissue and sports massages prompt recovery from injuries incurred on the field or in the gym. Drawing on her studies, Nadia also offers foot reflexology treatments.
Aura Day Spa and Salon's grass-green walls endow the spacious, contemporary studio with a light, summery feel. This spatial beauty translates into a beauty-bestowing menu of treatments, which consists of facials, massages, nailcare with OPI products, and haircuts for women, men, and children. The massage therapists relax bodies with Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and chair massages, and the aestheticians perform facials with Éminence Organic Skin Care products. These all-natural skincare formulas are composed of raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs to promote skin health, not to replace one's normal meal routine.
Although Pro Massage Health Solutions' licensed massage therapists are each trained in multiple modalities, they all specialize in one thing: customizing sessions to suit their clients' needs. They accomplish a truly tailored experience by mixing and matching strokes from their arsenal of approaches. For clients who want a relaxing visit, the staff may focus on Swedish maneuvers. Deep-tissue kneading and the sports modality, alternatively, may be in order for those afflicted with aches and pains. Therapists also specialize in treating chronic pain and discomfort with myofascial trigger-point therapy, which works to ease bodies at specific points of tension. The therapists happily cater to people with hectic schedules. They offer late appointments and readily render on-location massages by visiting patients’ homes, offices, hotels, and hotel pillow forts supported by stacks of room-service food.
Adagio Massage Company sows the seeds of relaxation with buckets of natural remedies. For more than two decades, the company's staff has fought the good fight against the ravages of the elements and the small indignities of time with a flotilla of services, including skincare regimens or massages delivered by male or female therapists. Guests kick back with a complimentary glass of champagne and organic dessert, and customize their own treatments by choosing aromatherapy and specialty oils to add to the relaxation.
Islands of Paradise Massage owner Terence A. Carter and his team of massage therapists take a variety of approaches to eliminating pain and stress. Swedish massages relax muscles with a gentle series of rolling, kneading, and percussive strokes. For chronic pain or tension, the therapists employ deep-tissue or trigger-point techniques, which target muscular knots built up from physical strain or the mental stress of not hearing the end of a knock-knock joke. Carter can also calm minds during bodywork sessions that work to rebalance emotional and mental energies.
