Gauzy curtains line the path to the cream-colored room where licensed massage therapist Chelsea Oglesby kneads skin and soothes aches. During her Signature massage, Oglesby applies organic lotions and essential oils, calibrating the depth of the massage to suit the pains that her client reports. Hot stones and steaming towels send warmth into muscles, encouraging knots to untie themselves without enlisting the help of a rugged mariner. Clients can also soothe stressed feet with the Sweet Treat, which includes a hot soak and a salt-and-sugar scrub.

Also specializing in a waxing technique that is swift but gentle, services are available on the face, arms, legs, back, and bikini areas. She leaves both men's and women's skin smooth with a full menu of depilatory services performed with a swift hand.
The licensed massage therapists at Positive Touch Therapy unearth the silver linings in achy muscle clouds using the power of therapeutic touch. Guests can seek flowing Swedish bodywork to promote relaxation, or access deeper connective tissues––or fascia––using moderate to firm deep-tissue pressure. The pamper-factor may also be elevated with such sumptuous add-ons as aromatherapy and therapeutic hot stones.
At Wellness by Gregory, a licensed massage therapist soothes backs with skills acquired over a decade of massage experience. Swedish massages quiet aches with gentle pressure and relaxing kneading, while the deep tissue modality helps clients deal with chronic pain. Convenient chair massages relax clients while they're fully clothed, while hot stone massages provide a more professional substitute for DIY pop rocks massages.
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.
