The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center’s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body’s energy.
Theresa, Nu View of U's owner and principle massage therapist, calls upon seven years of bodywork experience to help clients combat stress and knotted muscles. Theresa and her team of tension busters knead muscles with a gentle to medium flow during the Swedish massage or work out injuries accrued from ziplining across the hallway with leftover floss during a sports or deep-tissue treatment. For muscles that refuse to budge, therapists are happy to add hot stones to the mix or bring about balance with reflexology or craniosacral therapy to help improve circulation and reduce pain.
At Massage Rose Therapeutic Center, therapists are selected for the pain relief they provide with their hands. This lends to the center's extra-long list of specialties, which includes Shiatsu, Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and trigger-point therapy. Massage Rose also has a VIP program, which offers discounted sessions for clients who come at least once a month.
Licensed massage therapist Neyssa Encarnacion calls upon more than 15 years of experience to knead away bodily stress with massages coupled with salt scrubs. During the Swedish massage and salt scrub, beneficiaries choose between two fine-grain salts before the therapist administers an oil-infused rubdown, which buffs away dry skin and unveils the luminous epidermis beneath. Dexterous hands then go toe to toe with tension, applying long, flowing strokes that smooth out muscular knots sustained from napping in cement mixers. A scalp massage boosts cranial circulation as fingers press peppermint essential oils along temples and caps, prompting minds to relax and split ends to sprout candy-cane seedlings. Clients may emerge from their treatment feeling such benefits as reduced soreness, larger energy reserves, and alleviated stress.
