Michael Olin studied massage at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, a school that takes a broad view of the subject. At his alma mater, Michael learned seven different modalities, which he now puts to use for his clients at Olin Heal Spa. He relieves stress and promotes blood flow with the gentle strokes of Swedish massage, or drills deep to relieve chronic tension or pain with deep tissue or trigger point therapy. Perhaps most unusually, he practices tui na, the principle form of Chinese medical massage. For this particular modality, he incorporates assisted stretching into his regular, hand-based massage techniques, with the goal of evening out the flow of energy through the body so that no particular organ gets an unfair electricity bill.

Colon hydrotherapy offers a way to hit the body's "reset" button and give it a fresh start, all while potentially alleviating painful gastrointestinal symptoms.

Relaxing music, videos, and candles in the treatment room help create a soothing ambiance throughout the entire experience. Clients are in complete control of the water infusion during their treatment, although the therapists will stop by every 10 minutes or so to check in.
