That's why her goal is to build a history with clients, thereby ensuring maximum relaxation and custom therapy during follow-up sessions. Sue's massage repertoire is diverse, ranging from pregnancy therapy and Swedish strokes to deep-tissue techniques for relieving lower-layer aches.

They can also blend their kneads with soothing aromas, such as lavender and mom's casserole.
At the core of Mehera Massage's mission is the idea of "hara"?a Japanese word that means "center." The licensed therapists here believe that by staying in touch with the hara, they can transmit energy from their hands into the client's muscles and spirits. Combine that philosophy with focus, sensitivity, and a client-centered approach, and you get massage treatments that benefit equally from mindfulness and physical touch.
Whether the therapists are administering a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, they follow a sequence designed to balance the body and give each part its proper due. They begin by focusing on the back, where most people carry a lot of tension and probably a few nieces and nephews. They then massage the shoulders, lower back, and torso, and continue on to the back of the legs. After massaging the neck, scalp, face, and limbs, they conclude with long strokes that cover the entire body, aligning the body and connecting all the disparate parts into one balance and relaxed whole.
At The NeuroPlus Institute, Dr. Joseph Serpe begins treatment with a health blueprint—a comprehensive summary of your medical history, your future goals, and a current physical exam.
