Nationally licensed massage therapist Jessica Moore knows something about stress. A former advertiser and marketer, she left the high-speed world of business to help people who are still a part of it relax from tension that compounds daily and weekly. She erases this tension and muscular soreness with different types of massages. Many of these modalities?such as Swedish and deep-tissue?rely on traditional hands-on strokes designed to boost circulation and root out embedded knots.

During sessions of barefoot massage, one of three licensed massage therapists– including Debra Carberry–utilize parallel bars on the ceiling for balance and leverage. Debra and her team then use body weight and bare feet to deliver a deep, relaxing massage. This modality is just one of more than a dozen offered at The Healing Space, where Debra and her astute squad of LMTs help clients address emotional and physical pain. They also offer standard massage sessions, such as deep tissue and Swedish, and not-so-standard sessions, such as ashiatsu and craniosacral therapy. Aside from bodywork, The Healing Space also specializes in children’s yoga, which assists in the development of coordination and self-awareness.

At Elements, you don't need spelunking gear and bat repellant to be considered a "caver." The staff applies the term to those who regularly visit its artificial salt cave—a grotto lined with pink Himalayan salt and lounge chairs. The salt dispenses particles into the air that potentially soothe the skin and combat respiratory ailments, such as congestion and asthma. And, by mimicking a natural cave, the room falls in line with the spa's eco-friendly motif. This focus on the environment pervades all of their treatments, paying homage to the elements of earth, water, wood, metal, and fire. A wet room, complete with a vichy shower and soaking tub, best embody the "water" aspect, whereas skin and massage services incorporate the remainder of the elements. Aestheticians light up complexions with products from Naturopathica Holistic Skin Care, applying extracts of alpine willow, rosemary, and chamomile to fight the signs of acne and rosacea. Massage therapists, meanwhile, customize their kneads to the unique aches of each client. They might untie muscular knots with help from Mexican beach stones, or conduct an ashiatsu massage with their bare feet, the best tools for conducting deep-tissue work behind jackhammers set to "gentle."

Vera Reed, a licensed massage therapist, is the wellness equivalent of a one-stop shop. In addition to mastering shiatsu, lymphatic drainage, energy balancing, reflexology, and other techniques over the past decade, she’s dived into dietary and herbal studies. This makes it possible for her to provide holistic treatments for the whole body, rather than just one system or two really small toes. In addition to caring for her patients with organic products, Vera and the staff of Body Nutrients also take care of the planet. Their efforts have resulted in the offset of nearly 2,000,000 pounds of CO2, over 16,000 pounds of waste kept from landfills, and the planting of over 1,000 trees.
