Therapeutic Touch's owner and operator Frederick Dunlap stuns stressors with a roulette of massage techniques mastered over a quarter century in the industry. Dunlap wields his knot-nullifying hands in each of the 60-minute sessions, highlighting one of four specialized massage styles. Indulge in the sprawling, relaxation-inducing strokes of Swedish massage, or let a deep-tissue massage work out hard-to-reach pains, leaving once-feuding tendons peacefully holding hands. For more specific strains, Dunlap presses away lower-back pains using neuromuscular techniques or targets athletically strained necks, backs, and shin guards with the sports massage. No matter which modality you choose, you'll leave the Therapeutic Touch premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.

For more than two decades, the company's staff has fought the good fight against the ravages of the elements and the small indignities of time with a flotilla of services, including skincare regimens or massages delivered by male or female therapists. Guests kick back with a complimentary glass of champagne and organic dessert, and customize their own treatments by choosing aromatherapy and specialty oils to add to the relaxation.
Tucked into a historic home replete with an art center and retail space filled with organic and locally produced products, Center of Symmetry?s trained wellness workers provide holistic health services.

Using a pair of bars to keep her balance, licensed therapist Melissa Bond climbs atop the massage table and uses the pads of her feet to relieve tight muscles in her client’s back. This practice is known as Ashiatsu Oriental bar massage, in which Melissa has earned certification—along with three other modalities—during her eight-year tenure as a therapist. In a calming treatment room, she unravels stressful knots with gentle Swedish massage or firmer deep-tissue treatments, rooting out tension and rare coins buried in musculature.
Gordon Robison’s small-town upbringing in Tennessee, along with his passion for preparing young women for Teen and Miss USA pageants, led him to create Gordon & Co. Salon, a spa that features high-end treatments in an inclusive, down-home atmosphere. In addition to treating scalps with Pravana coloring products and Aquage styling balms, Gordon's affable staffers perform body treatments and massages. Scrubs incorporate coffee or honey and almond scents, and spray tans leave skin looking sun-kissed without the painful radioactive lip marks. The massage therapists draw from a number of therapeutic modalities, targeting knotted muscles with gentle kneading or improving sluggish circulation and lymphatic flow with energy work.
