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.
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.
The husband-and-wife team behind Pandi Acupuncture and Massage heals clients? ailments with holistic treatments. The two turn to the therapies of traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture and cupping, to redirect and balance the body?s flow of energy. Not discounting more local practices, they also incorporate modern Western techniques such as kinesio taping to reinforce muscles and poorly wrapped birthday presents. At the center of their practice is massage, which draws on the power of touch to banish stress from the body and mind.
At Osceola MediClinic, certified and licensed medical practitioners reach patients with walk-in and urgent care under the direction of Dr. Carol Grant.

It’s no coincidence that portraits of Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe line the walls of Timeless Laser Rejuvenation Center. Each of these women has come to represent the timeless beauty that Timeless Laser Rejuvenation Center helps patients achieve with their advanced skin and body treatments.
The doctors can often be found wielding a SmartLipo system that melts away pockets of unwanted fat without the risks associated with traditional liposuction, or keeping busy imbuing their patients with beauty in the form of Botox and other dermal fillers that erase fine lines and wrinkles. A team of skilled aestheticians takes the helm during less invasive procedures that rely on Obagi and Skinceutical products to reduce signs of acne, rosacea, and aging.
The center’s advanced equipment lives up to the staff’s remarkable breadth of experience. Hair removal, acne, and IPL lasers erase sun damage and facial veins, and Venus Freeze treatments work on skin tightening, body contouring, and reducing the appearance of cellulite and to-do lists scribbled on thighs.
After suffering from a number of painful complications tied to an allergic reaction, Quiet Touch's owner Jennifer Apolinario says that massage therapy was what made her feel whole. Trigger-point massage helped to relieve severe migraines, and craniosacral therapy worked to restore balance after being paralyzed on her left side. She opened Quiet Touch to share the healing power of touch through massage sessions rather than by high-fiving every sad-looking person she passes. She incorporates Biofreeze products during joint massage to restore flexibility with a cooling sensation similar to an ice pack. Paraffin dips, which for Apolinario relieved the stiffness from rheumatoid arthritis, envelop hands and feel in soothing warmth.
