At Muscles First!, massage therapist Ashley shares her enthusiasm for two Thai bodywork techniques: Thai massage and luk pra kob. The former incorporates elements of yoga, and the latter incorporates herbs and compression massage to help improve circulation and reduce stress. Depending on your needs though, Ashley may recommend one of her more traditional massage treatments, such as deep-tissue or Swedish massage. Luk Pra Kob, a Thai herbal compress treatment, can also be added to massages.
Yoga has been a part of Robin’s life since 1968, though it didn’t completely take hold until 1999 when she became a certified instructor. Since then, she has built a community of holistic healing around her yoga practice with Robin’s Yoga & Healing Center, LLC, offering wellness services such as thai yoga bodywork, reiki, and breath-work sessions.
The licensed massage therapists at Life Healing Spa send stress the way of the corded phone. As far as other things susceptible to knots, staff members take the kinks out of muscles by rendering six Westernized treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. But they also offer Chinese-style therapies, including cupping and gua sha therapy. During gua sha, a therapist pressures the skin in strokes with a round-edged instrument to decrease the visibility of small red petechiae, called sha, in two to three days.
At Winchester Wellness Centre, two aestheticians and a massage therapist tend not only to the skin's surface but also to the hard-working muscles beneath it. To beautify complexions, aestheticians employ treatments that range from the pore cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing of traditional facials to fine-crystal microdermabrasion and oxygen infusions. Meanwhile, the center's massage therapist alleviates aches with reflexology techniques focused on the hands and feet, or she uses Thai massage to stretch muscles, which enhances flexibility more comfortably than sleeping in a pretzel-shaped bed.
Licensed massage therapist Yudelka Bueno restores range of motion to squeaky human hinges with her signature bodywork. Yudelka's massage menu is as diverse as her clientele, because every session is tailored to the individual's health history, physiology, and preference. Yudelka employs flowing Swedish strokes or aromatherapy for relaxation and focused deep-tissue pressure to target chronic aches. Hot-stone massages are also available to improve circulation and melt away stress.
