Samantha Sargent, the experienced, licensed massage therapist at Synergistic Health, soothes sore muscles and relaxes away cares with custom massages. Each muscle-melting session kicks off with an initial consultation to evaluate desired outcomes and unearth medical history, allowing the therapist to create a personalized massage or ghostwrite the memoirs of back muscles. Soft, ambient music plays as Samantha’s expert hands attack aches and pains with techniques from many traditions, including medical and sports massage, acupressure, tui na, and Thai massage. For some types of massage, the therapist smoothes light oil over skin to ease friction and help build empathy for salad greens. Before or after their massage, guests can sip tea amid the tranquil reception area’s gentle orange walls and soft lighting. Synergistic Health bolsters freshly de-stressed bodies with its own line of organic, handmade beauty products. The lotions and balms eschew parabens in favor of all-natural ingredients, such as coconut oil, beeswax, and fresh-squeezed sun rays. Each potion is designed to exfoliate and pamper skin, outfitting faces, lips, and cuticles with younger-looking appearances.

In addition to hot-stone therapy, which promotes circulation, Peche can also perform energy work or reflexology, which manipulates pressure points on the feet to treat areas throughout the body.
