These days, as a licensed, hands-on therapeutic practitioner, she relaxes sore muscles and stiff necks with seven massage techniques, each customized around the needs of her clients. Maria applies pressure to meridian lines during Thai massages, relieves aches and pains in pregnant women during prenatal sessions, and practices skipping rocks over tense muscles with hot-stone massages. Along with massages, Massage 2B Fit's extensive salon-style services pamper visitors with sunless tanning, hydrotherapy baths, and microdermabrasion treatments.
