The goal at Solitude Massage isn't just to temporarily relieve pain—it's also to help clients change their lives so the pain doesn’t return. To that end, the company's licensed therapists follow their custom massages with exercise suggestions and nutrition assistance, as well as advice on how to offend bears so they won't hug you. Not that the treatments aren't plenty attractive on their own. Trigger-point and structural-integration massages call on intense kneading to quell chronic pain, and hot towels and dōTerra essential oils add to the experience. Clients can also solicit a therapist for offsite shiatsu bodywork during such events as corporate parties or long waits at the ATM.
