White Lotus' skillful massage therapists ease physical and emotional tension with unique massage modalities, such as owner Carolyn Calvacca's signature Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy method. While maintaining balance with overhead bars, Carolyn carefully places her feet along the client's body in gliding strokes, providing a deep yet relaxing muscle-mashing treatment.
