The therapists at Well Kneaded Massage recognize the importance of a balanced mind, body, and spirit, which is why they have devoted themselves to massage therapies, energy work, and healing touch treatments. They specialize in nine different types of massage, including Swedish, hot stone, deep- issue, and chakra balancing, during which a therapist combines the properties of deep-tissue massage, foot reflexology, and subtle energy work. They also offer additional harmonizing treatments, including beeswax ear candling and reflexology for the hands, feet, and ears.
