On her website, massage therapist Guylaine Bessette says she keeps her eyes open for one sign she's doing a good job: when a client closes theirs. "My greatest compliment is when a client falls asleep while receiving their massage and when I get feedback that they are pain free for the first time in years," she writes. At Body Lines Day Spa, she grounds her practice in myomassology, a school of massage therapy that incorporates many different modalities along with energy work?think reflexology, Reiki, and cupping.
