Since 1983, the American Institute of Massage Therapy's instructors have been molding the minds and techniques of students, enrolling them with low-cost tuition and high post-completion employment rates, and sending them out into the world with a deeper understanding of the body and how to keep it healthy. That's not all they use their hands for, though; instructors and students practice their profession upon visitors to the massage center. This provides hands-on experience for blossoming practitioners while keeping the citizens relaxed so they don't worry about all those flying saucers.
Located within Cartel Salon and Spa, Moonstone Massage Therapy pulls together an array of relaxation techniques to destress clients. Custom-blended Aura Cacia essential oils pave the way for long, fluid strokes in the Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone modality, all of which help boost circulation while reducing tension. These sessions turn luxurious during Lavender Bliss or relaxation packages, in which therapists dote on feet with lavender foot masks or tingly peppermint foot massages.
Beröra means touch in Swedish, and that’s at the heart of this unconventional school’s philosophy: creating a fun way for couples to reconnect and relax. During sessions, two instructors coach six misty-eyed duos as they deliver easily mastered, Swedish-inspired strokes to their paramours. Teachers demonstrate beginner Beröra sequences from neck to toe before two-hour classes commence in a room ringed with mirrors, flickering candlelight, and soothing Norah Jones vocals. Clad in comfy, loose-fitting clothing, pupils de-stress under the flourishes of the Beröra 1-2-Bonus! method, designed to tenderize any body part. Fingers glide with provided oils and creams in an effort to fully soothe the Beröra Sexy Six Body Sections with specialized techniques. Couples gain insight usually reserved for massage therapists and competitive jugglers, including how to keep hands moving without suffering from fatigue. Enlightened students leave with a handout that sums up all of the Beröra methods necessary to easily reenact relaxation sessions at home.
