Q&A with Denise Leslie, Massage Therapist/owner
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Neuromuscular technique: chronic muscle tension release using trigger point therapy. Thai/yoga massage: stretching the ligaments and compression through muscle groups.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Facilitating wellness, helping people feel better, and motivating them to be better people by releasing the tension and stress that the muscles and body are holding onto.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Yes. I hold a Sports massage certification, an NMT certification, and a trigger point therapy certification. I also hold certification in Thai/yoga massage. I am nationally certified by the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination, and I am a member of American Massage Therapy Association.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I practice and teach private kundalini yoga.
OM SPA's founder Omar Holmes began his career as a health and fitness coach. He first became aware of massage as a way to help his clients recover from or prevent injuries, but the more he learned about it, the more interested he became. Eventually, he realized he had a passion for the technique, and enrolled at the American Academy of Reflexology to being his education. He still uses the Flocco Method of reflexology in treatments, combining treatments of the hand, foot, and ear to relax the entire body. He rounds out his techniques with modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and lymphatic drainage.

Relinquish Spa tackles maladies of all stripes with a team made up of an energy healer, a licensed massage therapist, and a reiki master. The cadre of helping hands employs a variety of massage styles that range from deep-tissue massage, heated-stone work, and crystal healing that aims to bring harmony to bodies more effectively than transplanting the vocal chords from an entire barbershop quartet. During chakra-balancing bodywork, the staff guides clients through meditation and breath work paired with more concrete massage. For more modern treatments, the licensed estheticians trot out infrared body wraps and lipo-cavitation to reduce cellulite and eradicate excess pounds.
Certified massage therapists slather skin in organic products made with fruits and vegetables, working the botanical elements into the skin with gentle hand movements or massage tools. The staff also possesses mastery with Bongers? therapeutic instruments that mimic the impact of a child's fist. Aside from paddling taut muscles or snare drums, therapists arrange heated stones on sore muscles, apply a gentle touch to expectant mothers, and knead overused tissues on athletes. Each massage is tailored to the client's specific needs, and will restore bodies to a state of relaxed joyousness unlike any they?ve experienced since they got their braces removed.

World Therapy Center is also a boutique where salts, polishes, robes, and soaps bring the pampering experience home.
