Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.

As a licensed massage therapist, nutritionist, and USA Triathlon coach, Elizabeth Bart takes an integrative approach––an amalgam of medicine, nutrition, fitness, and massage therapy to promote over-all wellness. Each session begins with a holistic review, wherein Bart reviews health history, diet, exercise, and your muscles' emo diary entries to create a personal well-being plan. This may manifest as a deep-tissue massage, fitness advice, or a nutrition regimen, all of which are offered at TriCare Massage Therapy.
