Certified massage therapist Asad Khan is no stranger to the power of natural healing or to hard work. Before opening Massaging the Soul, Asad persevered through 720 hours of extensive training at the National Holistic Institute to earn his massage license. In addition to trekking through the demanding program, he lost 60 pounds, relying solely on natural methods to do so.
At Massaging the Soul, Asad draws from his comprehensive education and personal experience, as well as the principles of yoga, meditation, and shamanic breath work, to connect with his clients and their individual needs through the art of massage. He specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue massage, but also works in the realms of shiatsu, hot stone, and aromatherapy. In some cases, Asad incorporates sound frequencies into treatments, as they may help clear the body's energy channels and compel any dogs in the vicinity to howl in perfect harmony.

Vito Mazza helps men and women dealing with hair loss increase follicular forestation with a variety of services designed to restore and bulk up thinning strands. During each laser-hair-therapy session, a low-level laser shines onto the scalp for 20 minutes to help stimulate the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which helps boost cell activity and produce healthier, stronger manes. Meanwhile, guests can relax and spend their time reading, watching television, or writing personalized welcome letters to each new head thread. Though results can vary, this treatment can help halt excessive hair shedding and create a fuller, thicker, and more versatile villus. Groupon users will receive a total of eight sessions that should be scheduled twice per week to optimize results and scare away birds that may nest in tresses between treatments.
