The certified practitioners at New England Muscular Therapy master a range of therapeutic treatments to extricate clients from the burden of painful musculoskeletal conditions. Clients release sighs of relief as massage therapists release taut muscles with fingers made nimble from hours of practice and marathon rounds of cat?s cradle. Acupuncture and herbs work to restore the body?s balance, especially in tandem with the practice of tui na, a traditional Chinese form of massage focusing on balancing energy in the body. Customized treatments draw together the clinic?s disciplines to tailor a variety of therapies centered on personal wellness goals and promoting relaxation.
When she begins an appointment, Kristy Barry doesn't just blindly jump into performing treatments. First, she starts with a free skin consultation, during which she identifies each client’s skin type. Next, she listens to concerns, priorities, and preferences so she can better customize her facials. Only then does she begin one of her three signature treatments: a classic European facial, a hydrating seaweed treatment, or a collagen-packed formula that swiftly soothes away wrinkles. Her pampering services aren't just restricted to facials; she also offers full-body waxing and makeup application.
At Shabu Restaurant, diners take dinner preparation into their own hands, creating edible masterpieces of Japanese cuisine with little more than a bubbling soup pot and platters of shiitake mushrooms, vermicelli noodles, morsels of tender steak, fish cakes, and squid. Within the cozy 50-seat dining room, glowing cylindrical chandeliers cast light on sleek ecru furniture and lavender-tinged orchids, while simmering vessels offer up the savory scents of MSG-free broth. In the outdoor Japanese garden, guests sip wine and sake amid the sounds of rustling bamboo leaves, burbling water, and a Japanese deer scare chasing away skittish dumpling thieves.
Masters of all things relaxing, Massage Works' licensed therapists can switch from one massage style to another midsession, bestowing the benefits of multiple modalities onto muscles. Deep-tissue and Swedish sessions release entrenched toxins with gentle, flowing strokes and kneading pressures that evict muscle tightness and help minds let go of deadlines and 1940s baseball stats. During couples massages, dueling massage therapists compete to see whose patient achieves total relaxation first.
