Massage therapist Carly Bradley customizes her massages—Swedish, deep-tissue, aromatherapy, sports therapy, and hot stone—to address the unique needs of her clients. This is her mission at Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork—to break from the boilerplate and give each client what they need, whether it’s a therapeutic massage for a sore back or an hour-long release from standing in as the family’s dinner table. Her massages typically use a mix of different modalities and include features such as hot towels and hot stones. Carly also has hands-on experience servicing clients that have special needs such as stroke victims and the physically disabled. Combining skills she learned at the Healing Arts Institute with a deep sense of compassion, Carly strives to help her clients achieve mind-body harmony through massage.
When muscles' fibers part ever so slightly, blood flows efficiently and healing begins. At Healing Arts Awareness, licensed massage therapist Rob Warfield creates this space within muscles by working across the fibers—a technique appropriately dubbed cross-fiber. Rob often integrates innovative methods such as cross-fiber strokes, acupressure (trigger-point work), and stretching into his massage therapy sessions, depending on whether his clients are sore from a tough week, experiencing the physical challenges of pregnancy, or dealing with chronic muscular disorders. And of course, Rob can also deploy these specialized maneuvers to boost the healing effects of more traditional Swedish, sports, and pregnancy massages. Relaxation and healing is furthered with the soothing sounds of tropical raindrops with crickets or oceanwaves crashing on shore.

Gabrielle pampers her clients with skin and body treatments at her eponymous aesthetics spa. From classic European facials to corrective peels and microcurrents facials, her beautifying skin treatments yield the most dramatic results when performed in a series.

Gabrielle carries professional skincare products including Pevonia cleansers and moisturizers, as well as Medicalia products for sensitive and reactive skin, which might become passive aggressive if not properly cared for.
