The "M.E." in Massage by M.E. is actually Madelinne and Emily, two licensed massage therapists with more than a decade of experience between them. The two have spent time working in both the medical and spa fields, and their versatility means they're adept at both therapeutic and relaxing massages. Their choice of the former includes sports and deep-tissue massages that can soothe chronic tension and pain. Relaxation and aromatherapy massages, meanwhile, are better suited to neutralize stress and emotional discomfort. With equal skill, the duo can lift spirits and silence worry and stress. They also offer reflexology treatments and prenatal massages that helps soothe the physical stresses of pregnancy.
After earning her massage-therapy license, Lisa Hartman went on to add a certificate in aromatherapy for good measure. Since then, she has worked in spas and rehab centers, and thus is equally adept at relieving stress and addressing injuries. Today, at Lisa Hartman Massage Therapy, Lisa facilitates what she believes to be the body's self-healing process through modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and back-relief massage. Her aromatherapy expertise is put to good use too; she offers spa treatments including aromatherapeutic scalp and foot massages and tropical-glow exfoliating scrubs, which use coconut milk, coconut oil, and sea salt to render skin smooth and moisturized.
From its services to its decor, AcuMed Group Wellness Center effortlessly blends East and West. Within the center's bronze-hued treatment rooms, acupuncturist and aesthetician Cecilia Rusnak combines contemporary beauty treatments with ancient Chinese medicine. One example of this blend is her acupuncture sessions, which not only treat various health conditions but also offer an aesthetic advantage?they work to rejuvenate complexions. Cecilia also offers med-spa services, including microdermabrasion treatments and steam facials, as well as Chinese therapies such as cupping and moxibustion.
Candlelight skips across the vanilla-white walls. Through the dimness, aromatherapy oils release their fragrant scent, tickling the nose with the essence of sweet almond. The room’s warmth multiplies and, the scene set, licensed massage therapist Rey Reyes begins melting muscles, digging deep into knots with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure. In addition to his traditional massages, Rey also champions the use of hot stones and bamboo sticks to quell lingering aches, and improves athletic performance with the foam-finger-based kneads of sports bodywork.
