Matt Greenwood, the licensed therapist at Green Havens Therapeutic Massage, started his massage career in an orthopedic health-care facility, where he worked in conjunction with physical therapists and athletic trainers. Informed by that health-care background, Matt now offers deep-tissue, sports, and neuromuscular massages to help clients find relief from pain, and help prevent or recovery from injuries. He also offers Swedish and hot-stone massages to help calm nerves and quiet stress, as well as specialty treatments such as oncology massage and craniosacral therapy.
Relaxation is only one of the possible benefits of the treatment sessions at Tranquility Massage Studio. Therapists specialize in promoting holistic health and a sense of wellbeing in their clients by employing various modalities, including tension-alleviating kneading, deep-tissue pressure, and neuromuscular therapy. To accentuate the benefits of their treatments, the staff can incorporate even more therapeutic elements into the sessions. Warm towels scented with essential oils, exfoliating salt scrubs, and a combination of hot and cold stones can help alleviate tension and revitalize clients. Additionally, the therapists can perform massages using jade stones, attempting to further soothe sore muscles and promote healing throughout the body.
From the deep stretching of sports massage to the precise pressure of shiatsu treatments, licensed massage therapists Aimee Wood, Josh Berndt, and Jesse Walters work to find the modality best suited to relieving their clients' pain and tension at BodyWorks Massage. Besides massage services, the trio can treat ailments throughout the body using holistic treatments such as reflexology and ear candling. Rather than hiding their secrets on the back of the Declaration of Independence, the three pass on their knowledge through classes on topics such as infant massage and core conditioning.
The aim of the practitioners at Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center is to better the health of their clients. They use acupuncture and massage therapy to halt muscles spasms, renew energy levels, and heal injuries. And though acupuncture and massage instill a sense of relaxation on their own, the practitioners add to the tranquility with soft music playing in the room or seashells to hold up to your ear.
Licensed massage therapist Kelle Staszak understands that muscles are like tiger stripes: no two sets are the same. That's why she tailors relaxation, deep-tissue, and lymphatic massage to each client's need—whether they're looking to sooth a sore spot or just lie around with their shirt off for a while. During 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions, she keeps lines of communication open, adjusting and modifying techniques to locate muscle knots and stay well within clients' pain threshold.
Warm facial towels, aromatherapy oils, and heat therapy are a few of the supplemental services the therapists at VidaTherapy Massage Center use to relax clients. They stir these add-ons into an array of Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages to further pamper clients. After a massage, clients' blood circulates better, sleep comes easier, their headaches can vanish, and the digital self-destruct timer on their back stops counting down.
