Spa Revival’s licensed therapist unties knotted muscles and tucks latent tension into bed with tailored massages that knead away pain in one of four modalities. In a 60-minute session, the muscle-soothing maestro can unleash flowing Swedish strokes to improve oxygen flow or draw on the intensities of localized pressure-point therapy to alleviate pains incurred in crab-walking competitions.

Leslie Sullivan, the licensed massage therapist and eponymous owner of a stress-free haven tucked behind Hampton Village, draws on her training in Swedish, deep-touch, acupressure, and myofascial-release techniques to customize treatments for a litany of muscular ailments.

Leslie also excels in reiki, a Japanese healing modality that works to retune internal energies and alleviate aches from crouching to nibble the leaves on tiny bonsai trees.
For an Air Force veteran, Eric Green is awfully comfortable straying into unfamiliar territory. Stationed in Florida, Green took up the practice of reiki, a healing method that deals with a subject that's fascinated him since adolescence: the flow of energy. Today, as a certified Reiki Master, Green practices Usui and Tibetan-style reiki, using strategic hand positions to relax the body, diminish stress, and promote overall health. Green customizes his reiki treatments for each client, sometimes relying on Hayashi hand positions, sometimes turning to hands-off techniques, and sometimes chit-chatting about his old scoutmaster, Mr. Tim, if the client was in his old scout troop and remembers Mr. Tim. Green also offers training for all levels of reiki, including Reiki Master.
