During the 60-minute therapeutic massage, a skilled massage therapist detects hidden pockets of tension throughout the body and coaxes them out with deft handiwork and promises to relocate the tension somewhere it currently does not exist--such as the audiences of tightrope walks. Alternatively, during the deep-tissue massage, dexterous hands delve even deeper to squeeze out built-up toxins from connective tissue by way of slow motions, focusing for more time on specific areas of discomfort to improve circulation and alleviate chronic tension caused by bad posture or carrying a pet sasquatch to the vet.

After spending a handful of years crunching numbers for her family's car business, Doran Poma decided to pursue a passion for skincare that she developed as a teenager.
