In the comfort of her private studio, massage therapist Karen Provost calms aching muscles with one-on one massage sessions. She utilizes Swedish strokes or sports bodywork to improve range of motion, and applies deep-tissue pressure to chronic sore spots. Those with muscle sensitivity, however, can opt for a reiki session, which strives to decongest the body's energy pathways and stimulate immunity. Whatever the modality, treatments are always tailored to the needs of the individual, and not to requests from radio callers.

Deep cleansing removes accumulated dirt and caked-on pie residue, and gentle exfoliation rousts out rooted impurities, leaving faces glowing and soft.
