The name is musical—“adagio” means to play “at ease”—so it’s fitting that the services at Adagio Body Works and Wellness are meant to work in harmony. Each visit begins with a consultation, during which therapists craft a treatment plan to suit your needs. These plans span from hot-stone massages and facials to mud wraps and scrubs, so clients can emphasize either hydrating their skin or recovering from trapeze accidents involving eating ribs for lunch.
Dr. Michael McCracken's licensed massage therapists animate a corrective chiropractic approach and treat muscular knots and tissue kinks to ample kneading, tapping, and stroking to relieve corporal stress and pain. A 30- or 60-minute Swedish massage employs a supple mix of long and short movements to lessen aches and extirpate pockets of pain. Either of the two female therapists melt soft-tissues into plumes of relaxation with specialized massage techniques, such as rocking, vibration, friction, and compression to help relieve chronic-pain, reduce everyday stress and tension, and ward off illness and disease after spending a fortnight at sea or a fortnight explaining what a fortnight is to a stubborn child.
As one of two licensed massage therapists at Therapeutic Professional Group, Amy Stiles calls upon more than a decade of professional massage experience to soothe backs and shoulders. Fluid strokes dissipate stress during 30-, 60-, or 90-minute Swedish massages, and intense, deep-tissue kneading stretches muscles. Stiles can also position hot stones across the back to radiate muscle-mollifying warmth, or concentrate on the neck up by administering scalp massages and professional-level games of peekaboo.:m]]
Massage Unlimited's one-hour signature massage is quadruple-barreled: it incorporates Swedish, deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and trigger-point techniques. A licensed therapist will customize the knead to suit your personal preferences and banish your back's individual bothers. He or she will apply heated packs to your back, warming the skin and soothing the muscles, while draping your feet in a hot, steamy towel that hides them from toe-gobbling blue jays. After the massage, the massage facial will cleanse and exfoliate your visage using a mask, steam, toner, and moisturizer. Pore depuration is accompanied by a face, neck, shoulder, arm, and hand massage.

Steeped in the art of combating stress, One Touch Massage Therapy Clinic's certified therapists alleviate muscular woes with smooth, flowing strokes and varying pressures. An undulating tide of taps and kneads kicks off the Swedish massage, whose gentle pressures inspire heightened states of mental repose. The massage’s gliding strokes also work wonders on the circulatory system, stimulating blood flow to oxygen-starved muscles and dispersing sticky schools of Swedish Fish. The powerful pressures of the deep-tissue massage work in tandem with assisted sports stretches to flush tension out of muscles and restore backs and shoulders to factory-fresh condition.
