At Well Being Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Vivian Bresnitz accelerates healing and relaxation with hands-on manipulation of muscles, tendons, and connective tissues. During 10-minute consultations, Vivian locates problem areas and lost car keys on each client’s body before selecting a path for treatment. Guests sink comfortably into plush beds for the 65-minute massage, during which Vivian’s practiced hands marshal heated river stones up spinal cords for hot-stone sessions or practice polarity therapy's reflexology and acupuncture techniques to marry guests' physical, mental, and emotional energy. During a muscular-therapy session, Vivian reaches deep into soft-tissue structures to melt away scar tissue and traumatic memories of gym class with friction and myofascial techniques.
After graduating from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, Jason Morin set out to craft custom treatments for highly trained athletes, the elderly, and all men and women in between. Today, he strives to provide those relaxing remedies through clear communication with patrons. He combines holistic methods with Western techniques, such as trigger-point therapy, acupressure, and myofascial release. Through these methods, Jason works to ease aches and pains after athletic injuries or attempts to break the world record for rollerblades left carelessly on stairs.
From soothing scalp massages and facials with foot massages, every service at More Than Skin Deep centers on pampering the client.

Licensed massage therapist Pamela Smith kneads muscles to more soothed states, helping clients to achieve peace of mind and body. Through the blending of six different massage modalities, Pamela customizes the one-hour muscle molding to suit each client's needs. For example, athletic clients or those suffering from chronic injuries from games of full-contact checkers may receive a combination of sports massage and deep-tissue work to target tight muscles, coaxing them to less tense topographies through stern but comfortable pressure, similar to curfew lectures from concerned dads.
Massage Therapists Lindsey Anderson and Anne Roberts plow away clumps of tension, pain, and anxiety with massages in various modalities. Skilled in Swedish and deep-tissue, they tailor each session to their clients’ individual health issues; simply tell them what ails you during a pre-massage consultation, and they will make sure to focus their attention on areas with the highest concentration of tension or “Kick Me” signs.
