At Escape Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Shawnee Moody has made it her mission to help ease the pain of others. Inside her tranquil studio, Moody promotes relaxation during stress-relieving Swedish massages and eases the leg and lower back pains associated with pregnancy during pre-natal massages. And, to help rid the body of deep, persistent pain, she also administers deep tissue massages, which are ideal for athletes or moms who can't keep their kids away from cracked sidewalks.
Licensed massage therapist Mary Jean Serignese alleviates bodily tension with more than six types of massage modalities. Each of her massage types lavishes muscles with customized strokes that emphasize complete relaxation. Aromatherapy oils augment some massages, infiltrating olfactory glands with the rejuvenating waft of essential oils, and hot stones—an area in which Mary Jean carries a special certification—melt away tension and pockets full of ice cubes.
Massage Energy’s licensed and nationally certified massage therapists perform a medley of massages to relieve muscle soreness and evict stress from body buildings. Massage therapists begin first-time sessions by speaking with clients about their health histories and concerns in order to tailor treatments to individual needs. Clients can choose a massage modality from an array of soma-stimulating flavors, including deep-tissue, relaxation, and pregnancy massage.
The therapists at this relaxing day spa bring natural healing to both the body and mind. They loosen tightly wound muscles with hot stones, bamboo sticks, and warm candle oil, which simultaneously nourishes skin for a silky soft feel. More than 10 types of facials tend to skin-specific ailments, be they acne or signs of aging, with specialized serums and soothing techniques. And during body wraps, the therapists enlist plant extracts and essential oils to remove excess water from systems—leaving bodies as light as the day they hatched.
Nationally and state-certified therapists comprise the roster at The Center for Massage & Holistic Therapy, where owner Larry R. Joyner prizes education and training above all else.
