Licensed massage therapist Ginny Forbes helps her patients overcome chronic pain and deep-seated muscle tension with a caring, therapeutic approach to her craft.

Phyllynna Hurtubise?s nimble hands first got their training at the age of 16, when she suffered from constant headaches after a car accident. Phyllynna taught herself to alleviate her pain through self-massage, eventually honing this skill by practicing on her friends. Years later, a layoff gave her the opportunity to attend massage school, where she fell in love with healing people through the power of her touch.
While she enjoys relieving clients? stress, Phyllynna says her real passion is pain relief, since she knows what it feels like to have constant discomfort. To this end, she strives to eliminate pain at its source rather than masking it with medication. Within a private chamber furnished with earth tones and natural textiles, she works her clients' muscular structures, urging them to release stress and painful memories of jazzercise routines. A hot towel keeps feet warm and Lotus Touch lotions sweeten each stroke as she melds together techniques from varied modalities, depending on her client?s individual needs. Ever conscious of her clients' comfort, Phyllynna walks first-timers through the appointment before she begins and gives each guest a bottle of water afterward to help flush out toxins and extinguish any aromatherapy-candle contraband.
Licensed massage therapist Debra Fazio adds a caring touch to each massage, facial, chemical peel, and body treatment she performs at BodyBliss Time Massage. As she deploys her shiatsu, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage handiwork, patients relax in a treatment room that reverberates with the sounds of nature, such as birdsong, ocean waves, and conch shells doing vocal warm-ups. Facial clients kick back in similar relaxation as warm steam gently opens their pores to prepare for deep cleansing and exfoliation with the help of customized serums. Debra also mixes organic sugars, salts, and sands to forge body and foot scrubs that evoke the calming feeling of crab-walking along the beach.
After foraging through forests of corporeal ailments and ill-advised tiger retreats, discover The Path to Wellness, a resort-like spa and health center aimed at whole-body rejuvenation. Skilled massage therapists employ ancient hand-arts to coax a comfier human out of a craggy muscle-knotted shell in the one-hour massage, available in their signature massage style, a lymphatic detoxifying process, or pregnancy-specific technique geared toward expectant mothers and misinformed fathers. Combine this thorough mollycoddling with a 25-minute express spa facial ($35) in the second deal option, a swift but thorough exfoliating treatment that leaves face-flesh as youthful and smooth as a toddler covered in pudding. Finally, the Paradise Package takes a zero-tolerance approach to bodily complaints, expelling gadabout impurities with an essential oil body wrap before moving to an aromatherapy massage, complimented by a hot rock and hot oil treatment, and finishing with the flourish of a full facial treatment.
