The deep-tissue kneads, gentle Swedish strokes, and hot-stone massages that licensed massage therapist Laurie uses to dissolve pain and tension are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to her studio's soothing elements. Even before she begins a session, clients suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, injury, or general stress begin to relax as they melt into a heated massage table amid soft music and subdued lighting. To further the effects of each massage, Laurie makes use of essential oils, whose herb-, flower-, and fruit-derived aromas help send clients into a state of deep relaxation.

Reflecting a spirit of diversity, Four 40 Beauty Salon congregates a team of coif clippers, aestheticians, and massage therapists under one roof to administer beautifying and relaxing services to a multicultural, all-ages clientele. Locks succumb to a full menu of cuts, colors, and conditioning treatments, and men can get more gussied up with beard and mustache trims. But the studio walls listen to more than just the snipping of scissors and the screams of severed hair falling to the ground. Skilled aestheticians pamper faces with a menu of facials and skilled muscle menders work out kinks and tension with an array of massages, such as Swedish and deep tissue.
Trispa Massage's licensed massage therapists employ a range of kneading techniques to ease muscle tension and stress. The therapists offer Swedish massage to induce relaxation, sports massage to help prevent injuries or reduce recovery time, and deep-tissue, trigger-point, and hot-stone modalities to relieve deep-seated aches and pains. The therapists also offer on-location massage treatments for those who cannot visit the office or simply feel more comfortable receiving a massage at home or on the roof of a moving train.
Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs. The treatments emphasize progressive rehabilitation, a method which allows doctor and patient to work together to track the effectiveness of treatments.
Marcelle Racine, the certified massage therapist at Boston Empowerment and Wellness Center, kneads tension out of anxious backs and shoulders during one-hour Swedish massages.
