The instructors at Ocean County Massage Institute understand that a great massage requires equal parts science and skill. That's why the business offers classes where students can apprentice for six months at the 1,000-square-foot facility, soaking up training from certified reiki, energy therapy, yoga, and acupressure practitioners. Inside the air-conditioned studio, students from a wide variety of backgrounds come together to learn a curriculum that includes massage history and ethics, as well as body mechanics, physiology, and business skills. All students must also complete 165 hours of clinical table experience to earn their license. Already licensed and experienced massage therapists also staff the Institute to soothe clients with a variety of massage modalities and bedtime nursery rhymes.

For those in search of a more high-tech approach to weight loss, they also provide i-Lipo laser body contouring paired with whole-body vibration.
Tennessee Floyd's Bodywork's licensed and certified massage therapists destress skeletal sacks with relaxing massage-therapy services. Muscles surrender tension and declare albatrosses at customs as anxiety gives way to gliding strokes and the light to medium pressure of a Swedish massage. The deep-tissue massage digs deeper into muscles, using firm pressure to dekink knots hiding deep in the tissue. During the hot-stone massage, smooth, gently heated stones rest along the body, delivering warmth to pained areas and crumbling tension into a fine sand later used to fill zen gardens.
Certified massage therapist Lori Amendolara of Essential Touch Body Works tames both physical and mental stress with hands-on healing. After filling out intake forms and chatting briefly about the goals of the session and of the Congress of Vienna, tense torsos undress to their comfort level and lie down. Over the course of 60 minutes, Lori employs a custom massage regimen that includes unscented, hypoallergenic oils to relax muscles, increase circulation, and release wrongfully imprisoned endorphins and serotonins. Tranquil sounds such as ocean waves fill the peaceful therapy room, and when the treatment is complete, clients refuel and awaken with a bottle of water and a small snack.
