Although licensed massage therapist Merla Joseph tailors each session based on an initial consultation, she continues refining her approach throughout the entire appointment, adjusting pressure and technique based on how each client's body responds. This approach applies to every modality that Merla uses, including Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and reflexology massage. She can also enhance sessions with foot treatments, aromatherapy, or by showering clients in $100 bills. Beyond massage, Merla's experience extends to facials, as well as detoxification therapy comprising a steam treatment and an ionic footbath.
