The seasoned muscle magicians at Peace Heaven & Earth Massage Therapy dispel stress with deft hands and feet using a variety of massage styles. The 60-minute therapeutic massage gives tense muscles relief from aches and pains through a routine of kneading, pushing, and stretching, without having to be floured, filled with raisins, and folded into an oven. Those opting for the 60-minute Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy massage can mollify their skin suits with a deep-tissue, barefoot massage. Focusing on digging stress out of the back's inner tissue layers, an experienced body walker employs overhead bars, intense pressure, and a rapid riverdance routine choreographed to Rockin' Robin.
The Tao of Healing's trained staffers smooth out bodily kinks with eight types of massages and pamper physiques with other spa treatments. In a private suite designed for one-on-one interaction, the soothing service begins with a traditional Swedish massage to warm up stiff physiques. With the aid of round basalt-lava stones heated to between 120–150 degrees Fahrenheit, a licensed therapist infuses heat into tight bone-holders to boost overall circulation and relax muscles into a mindful, meditative state. The pleasantly balmy pebbles may be placed along the spine or palms of the hands, allowing the warmth to seep more deeply into the dermis. As the stones cool off, they are replaced with newly heated ones to keep the infusion consistent.
The staff members at Peaceful Solutions have an array of therapeutic bodywork techniques up their sleeves. In addition to traditional massage modalities such as relaxation and deep-tissue, their services include treatments such as craniosacral therapy, reiki, and raindrop therapy, which combines aromatherapy, reflexology, and massage to promote healing. Spa add-ons are available too, including paraffin-wax dips and foot soaks, in case you want to relax or just feel like a car that's being detailed.
