Unlike many massage therapists, Hands To You Wellness Studio owner Zina Sanders incorporates holistic healing elements into her treatments to provide additional therapeutic and stress-relieving benefits. Traditional Thai massages take place on floor mats so their yoga-like stretches can be more easily achieved, and integrative reflexology treatments focus exclusively on pinpoints throughout the body to improve balance and circulation and locate the body’s “eject” button. Since graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 1996, Zina has continued to broaden her skills by pursuing ongoing education at various seminars and workshops.

In addition to skincare and facial services, the spa further relaxes clients with beauty treatments, body wraps, and massages. A range of products is also available so customers can maintain glowing skin at home, saving them the trouble of always holding flashlights under their chins.
Ojas customizes its Body in Bliss massage session to the needs of each individual client in order to drain the body's tree trunk of its stress sap. The massage technician will start by speaking with you about your aches, pains, and anxiety dreams and will then use that knowledge to set his or her hand phasers to "relax." From there, simply lie still and bliss out as your tensions are massaged, stroked, kneaded, and occasionally garotted away. Body in Bliss incorporates a serenity-enhancing blend of essential oils that massage the nose as much as the body and uses warm stones to stimulate circulation and draw deep-set tension out of the body's muscles, joints, and field of glandmines. You'll leave Ojas's premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
