Massage therapists Amanda and Kate Hagsten relax muscles, relieve stress, and promote wellness in an elegant studio decorated with artwork and fresh flowers. The foundation of Forget-Me-KNOT’s has been a dream come true for Amanda, who had wanted to establish an inviting space for people to rest their bodies and minds after long days spent hunting for lunch with tridents. Kate, meanwhile, finds joy in helping others to develop balance between their bodies and the environment; she’s currently a candidate for a PhD in the field of ethnobotany. The Hagstens treat a range of ailments with a variety of massage-therapy services including Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and acupressure modalities.
At Island Touch Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Ayesha puts her extensive training to work during each of her massage sessions. Formerly from Trinidad, Ayesha incorporates an island spirit in her work in an effort to help melt away muscle tension, curb chronic pain, and allay aches caused by bending over backward to make everyone else happy. She augments her massages with various add-ons such as softening foot soaks, invigorating salt scrubs, or slimming body wraps. She also infuses massages with soothing aromatherapy to relax the entire body and evoke an island paradise or a DMV covered in scratch-and-sniff stickers.
It?s not every day you see a child poring over massage therapy manuals at the library. But Lisa Bowman wasn?t your average child?she was daughter to a mother with multiple sclerosis. So at the ripe young age of 10, Lisa and her mom would visit the library together to learn more about massage, and she?d implement new practices at home. The power to ease her mother?s pain brought Lisa such joy that she still massages away aches today at Aaahhh?Therapeutic Massage. Using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, or aromatherapy massage, Lisa?supported by her staff, which includes a male therapist?brings relaxation and relief to her clients, as she did to her mother all those years ago.
