When workaday stressors leave their bodies feeling like lifeless lumps of clay, clients often retreat to The Kneading Oasis. There, tucked away from the bustle of the faraway streets, licensed massage therapists stand ready to reshape minds and bodies with the restorative, detoxifying power of their four massage modalities. Stress-busting Swedish and deep-pressure massage help boost circulation and break down scar tissue in overworked muscles for more relaxed, comfortable backs, and sports and orthopedic massages address chronic pain or ease the soreness and tight ligaments associated with athletic activity. Regular massage can speed recovery from injury, strengthen torsos against future strain, and encourage wings to uncoil from behind the shoulder blades.
