Kathy Adams is a licensed massage therapist who uses her persuasive fingertips to coax soreness out of weary muscles through customized body massages. During the 90-minute healing massage (a $90 value), Adams targets specific bodily aches with relaxation and deep-tissue techniques as well as Arnica lotion––which is ripe with natural anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate swollen joins, ligament tenderness, and bruised egos after failing to open novelty-size jelly jars.
