Inside a warm, quiet room with soft music notes floating in the air, Licensed Massage Therapist Lisa Giudici customizes therapeutic massages to reduce knots of tension and stress. The kneading sessions kicks off with a brief consultation, during which Lisa asks about health history, areas of pain, and beliefs in the existence of Antarctica. Next, her healing hands apply pressure to tender tendons, reducing muscle tightness, improving circulation, and alleviating pain. Lisa’s flexible fingers target specific muscular malcontents, and by the end of the session, guests strut out of the soothery brimming with increased joint flexibility and new stores of energy that can temporarily power failing jet packs.
