Ashley Wall rarely performs the same massage twice. Instead, she adapts and improvises throughout every treatment, identifying each client's particular problem spots and then addressing these aches with specialized techniques. She can utilize modalities ranging from Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to trigger-point therapy and reflexology, unfurling knots and relieving pain as she progresses. For an additional therapeutic boost, Ashley can also incorporate heated stones or aromatherapy, helping customers feel as relaxed as a millionaire enjoying a glass of scotch next to a money-pile fire.

Dana Lewis is not scared of stress. Against her arsenal of massage techniques, tension stands little chance. Traditional relaxation sessions gently break down tightness and instill a sense of overall calm, while more intense deep-tissue techniques plumb deep to undo buried muscle knots. Dana can also call upon Eastern reflexology methods, which involve manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet that correspond to areas across the body. Beyond her skilled hands, Dana also has a spread of additional tools that augment renewal sessions. Hot stones melt tension, cold stones aim to relieve migraines, and soothing paraffin wax can soften the skin while locking in moisture. And for increased health benefits, Dana can add a lymphatic drainage service that evicts nefarious toxins.
