Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Myriah Hinchey strives to restore vitality and promote longevity through a bevy of spa services and preventive medicines. The one-hour Swedish massage sees a licensed massage therapist mollycoddling sinews with deep, firm strokes designed to improve circulation and release pent-up tension. Toxins are lured out of lymph nodes and muscular lairs with nothing more than the therapist's dexterous digits and a candy bar dangling from a fishing line.
At Colchester Massage LLC, licensed massage therapists banish pesky pains with tension-relieving Swedish massages. Muscle kneaders begin each session by answering questions and uncovering any muscle woes caused by stress or challenging an octopus at Twister. Using the Swedish technique, the massage therapist then incorporates five different types of long, flowing strokes to soothe tense musculature and reduce stiffness. The treatment may be beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain, arthritis, and achy fatigue caused by bending over backwards to please an upside-down boss. For a $15 fee, patrons can upgrade their sessions to deep-tissue or hot-stone, or for $5 add aromatherapy.
Board-certified physician Dr. Tory Westbrook erases veins and solidifies skin with the help of a Candela laser. Both the spider-vein treatments and skin-tightening treatments deliver an intense beam of light to the targeted cells, inundating them with heat and leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. During each procedure, both the technician and the client don safety glasses to look sciencey before the doctor applies the laser hand piece to the client's skin. The laser issues a light spray of coolant before each pulse of light to soothe and protect the skin. Each treatment takes up to 15 minutes and can be performed on all skin types, including fair, dark, and Claymation. Clients can learn more by visiting Dr. Westbrook's list of frequently asked questions or by scheduling a consultation.
Susie Williams believes that every component of the body must be functioning fully for well-being to be achieved. Through personal and group wellness sessions she addresses the emotional, social, environmental, and spiritual aspects of the psyche while zeroing in on physical equilibrium with individualized massage sessions. Rather than attacking symptoms as they appear, or replacing aching limbs with wooden pegs, Williams remedies the body with relaxing Swedish massages and tension-targeting deep-tissue massage. She combines her specialty in these modalities with skills gained from advanced training in neck and upper-back work, frozen shoulders, and rotator cuffs. Her training makes for a diverse tool bag of techniques to draw upon as she works with clients facing fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, athletic injury, or simple stress. While Williams is the primary, most experienced therapist at Absolute Wellness, services may be performed by another therapist with different specialties.
