Elizabeth Goodman is very sensitive to the stress that comes from working in a cubicle. It wasn't until she discovered massage that she felt herself begin to unwind, and she realized that the act of helping others relax was more fulfilling than her desk job. So she fled the cubicle. She works as a therapist now, treating the very same aches and pains on her clients she once experienced herself.
Inside her namesake massage studio, Sara Bliss banishes clients' stress and assuages back-bound pain. Trained in such common modalities as Swedish, deep tissue, and reflexology, she also offers guests specialized prenatal massages and can deliver on-site chair massages, perfect for parties, employee appreciation days, or really stressful games of musical chairs. In addition to stress-melting muscle kneading, Bliss further banishes tension with complimentary luxuries such as hot steamed towels, aromatherapy, and foot reflexology, included with each full-body massage.
At A Kneaded Balance, LLC, founder Angela Sharkey draws from a host of certifications as she assuages aches and pains throughout the body. Having completed advanced training in oncology massage and lymphatic treatments, Angela soothes patients battling or recovering from cancer, or encourages drainage and decongestion in clients suffering from lymphadema. In addition to treating chronic or temporary physical ailments, she also promotes a deep sense of relaxation through hot-stone massages and reflexology treatments.
Licensed massage therapist Annette Thompson sends relief flooding through achy musculature with her soothing therapeutic massages. In the comfort of Tranquility Point Therapeutic Massage's cozy studio, clients can benefit from her flowing Swedish massages, hot-stone treatments, trigger-point therapy, or deep-tissue massages. Annette also specializes in reflexology, a holistic treatment that uses pressure points in the hands and feet to help heal ailments such as migraines, sleep disorders, and lead foot.
Sparrsh Massage & Facial Spa’s massage therapists work to relieve everything from stiff muscles to blocked sinuses by employing a wide range of massage modalities. Among them are deep tissue treatments and trigger point therapy as well as sports massages that aim to treat injuries caused by competitive potato peeling sessions. Alternately, aestheticians wield Glo Therapeutics products that are free of parabens and dyes to help clear up acne and moisturize dry skin. They can also beautify and shape eyebrows with waxing, threading, and tinting treatments.
Body, Mind and Spirit Med Spa's staff soothes clients in a tranquil oasis where aromatherapy gives depth to every treatment. Massage therapists knead stress away to the mesmerizing rhythms of a nature soundtrack teeming with water sounds. Even nail services get a spa-like treatment, including some pedicures augmented with hot stones. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians cleanse and soften skin during facial and body treatments using Dermalogica products. Spa packages include a signature service, where patrons remain on the table throughout a massage, pedicure, and facial, all performed by an experienced therapist. In this space, decorated in chocolate and taupe shades, leafy green plants add a pop of color.
