At Serenity Source Massage, a thought-provoking sign greets visitors as they enter. It doesn’t tell them to merge, stop, or yield to leaping dolphins. Instead, it challenges them to better their lives with one bold word: “simplify.” To fuel the simplification process, licensed massage therapists help muscles let go of stress, tension, and stiffness. Signature 80-minute massages tether the body to the mind with a custom blend of flowing strokes, acupressure, and trigger-point therapy complemented by warm towels and soothing heat packs. Add-ons such as a scalp massage or a foot sugar scrub promote blood flow to boost energy and facilitate healing. Chiropractors can help target pain sources with careful adjustments and exercises that cultivate mobility and strength.
Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
