A Lotus Touch Therapeutic Massage's therapist kneads bodies into a gummy state of bliss with a one-hour head-to-toe massage. Working over the back, neck, shoulders, and scalp, the massage stops only to take a quick karaoke break before traveling out to the body’s orbiting appendages of the hands, legs, and feet. Stress, along with tension and pain within the muscles, pack their bags and head for the door as the therapist utilizes a variety of massage techniques to penetrate multiple layers of tissue. The massage also helps to relax the nervous system, stimulate circulation, boost energy, and locate the wedding rings that were swallowed in a double-dare at a PTA meeting.

The female-focused health and wellness gurus at Comprehensive Healthcare for Women practice a whole view on health and wellness in an attempt to banish stress and tension with restorative Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal therapeutic massages. During each massage, skilled therapists ease tightness from stiff muscles with nimble fingers that can draw upon long, flowing Swedish-massage strokes to knead tendons with alternating pressure or firm deep-tissue strokes to loosen knotted connective tissue and milk lactic acid from musculature. Comprehensive Healthcare's team of therapists tailor massage techniques to pamper and alleviate stress and pain for each client. Prenatal massages can help mothers-to-be by curtailing anxiety, soothing inflamed nerves, and helping the body flush away stores of excess fluid and sarsaparilla to reduce swelling. Hot stones may be added to the massage for no additional fee.
Viverant's physical therapists help clients lengthen their stride or smooth out their swing, optimizing strength, balance, and motion to reduce the risk of injury and improve the chance of victory. During the one-hour biometric sports analysis, therapists observe the athlete's body as it swings a golf club, trots on a treadmill, pitches a baseball, bikes, or eats 50 hot dogs. Fitness experts then analyze a videotaped record to identify characteristic motions that prevent the body from achieving optimal performance. Athletes dealing with pain, as well as those trying to avoid injury, learn to adjust their body's motion to avoid straining muscles or grinding joints into sweetened Pixy Stix dust and get acquainted with workouts, stretches, and equipment that can aid balance and form.
