Licensed massage therapist Tracy Sprader reduces clients' mental stress and muscular tension with custom kneading routines performed over the course of 60 or 90 minutes. As senses ripen amid the chocolate-hued walls and flickering candles of a private treatment room, Tracy divines the client’s particular massage preferences through a full consultation. Once Tracy has determined a game plan that's equally suited to assuaging aches as it is to scrambling the letters on a Scrabble board, her skilled fingers shuffle across backs, executing either relaxation or deep-tissue massages. The relaxation massage offers light to medium pressure while the deep-tissue option involves deeper kneading. Both massages employ a combination of hot-and-cold therapy.
Long before modern medical conveniences?such as computers and robot doctors?the primary form of therapy was massage. And it's still going strong.

Guests may request flowing Swedish strokes to ease tension or focus on lower-layer aches with Kristin's signature deep-tissue massage.
