The therapists at East-West Therapeutic Massage give massages in the same way that they teach their students: by combining creativity with science. Each therapist wields the classroom know-how to deliver a muscle-melting shiatsu, sports, or lomilomi massage. But to them, it’s more important to remain flexible in their methods, responding to the needs of the client rather than rigidly adhering to textbook diagrams. To this end, one of the primary tenants of East-West is listening to the client. Though guests can choose from a menu of massage modalities, such as Hawaiian and craniosacral massage, they can also start sessions with a description of their discomfort or desires, such as reducing stress or eliminating their fear of tripwire. From these descriptions, the therapist crafts a tailored set of motions and strokes, paying close attention to the body as the massage guides clients toward relief.
