Licensed massage therapist Melanie Lahart believes that “movement is the foundation of health, healing, and well-being,” according to her website. It’s a philosophy she fostered at the Body Wisdom Massage Therapy School. Under the tutelage of expert instructors, she fine-tuned healing techniques such as Thai acupressure, lymphatic bodywork, and clinical sports massage. Now Melanie combines her therapeutic touch with soothing oils and aromatherapy at her own Integrated Massage Arts studio.
A visit to Massage Heights is a holiday from the workaday worries of overbearing supervisors, unhelpful Pilates partners, and distant, indifferent babies. Abandon yourself in a 60-minute or 90-minute massage (up to a $119.98 value). A skilled massage therapist will use hot stones to expertly remove knots from your muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. The heated stones warm muscles and encourage circulation, coaxing tension out from under its desk to frolic outside during your body's relaxing recess. Pick your pressure preference with Swedish or Deep Tissue massage variations. In addition to this stress reliever, you'll receive the benefits of lavender, peppermint, or eucalyptus aromatherapy, which massages the nasal passages with a mix of specially blended oils that transforms the dull, boring atmosphere into a cloud of inhalable bliss.
Rather than viewing massage and structural alignments as separate disciplines, the wellness experts at Reset view them as complementary tools that can be used together to reinvigorate bodies. The simplest path to wellness consists of three components: massage, alignments, and an active lifestyle. However, their primary focus is energizing and refreshing clients through bodywork, which can consist of soothing aching muscles, improving structural and spinal alignment, and relaxing the back with a massage—or a custom blend of all three. Through these methods, the professionals can minimize the stresses of daily living which may include nagging pains, low energy levels, and sleep difficulties.
