Though two hands and a back are the basic ingredients for most massages, the staff at Healthy Self Therapy & Wellness Center doesn't shy away from mixing in additional flavor—such as another pair of hands. The four-hands massage treats physiques to the simultaneous expertise of two seasoned therapists, who mirror each other's movements for full-body coverage. The team's many modalities also call upon cups for creating vacuum seals on the skin, hot stones for unwinding knots, and paraffin wax for softening hands and feet. Even when massages don't call for any outside help, the muscle gurus alter their styles based on assessments of each client's condition.

For example, a relaxing therapeutic massage can quell surface aches, whereas a cellulite-therapeutic massage strives to tighten the skin without simply clothespinning it back at the spine. Whether patrons hope to dispel mental anxiety or chronic pain, the therapists tackle their ailments with long-term relief in mind. However, five-minute chair massages are also available for those who need a brief but focused moment of muscular meditation.
