Sunflower Massage Studio isn't just a relaxing refuge from the everyday?as a local business, it's also a refuge from the revolving-door approach of chain massage studios. This means that in addition to a tension-relieving massage, customers get a bounty of other thoughtful amenities, such as a 30-minute buffer zone before and after the massage to give client and therapist time to wind down and discuss the session. It also means the therapists won't pressure their clients to choose a massage modality, as every session is customized to their individual needs. Of course, add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy are available, as well as specialty styles such as prenatal, myofascial-release, and sports massage, which helps athletes' muscles recover from sporting events and emotions recover from tense exchanges with referees.
