For more than 18 years, the licensed practitioners at Harvard Therapeutic Massage have relaxed and healed patients suffering from stress, injury, and chronic pain. Each member of the team specializes in relaxation massage and pain relief therapy. The former uses oils and lotions with a combination of gliding, kneading, and stretching all over the body to help muscles unwind and put minds at ease, while the latter sees therapists focusing on trigger points, helping blood flow to contracted areas in order to bring relief to the surrounding nerves. Select members of the team are also specialized in styles of treatment such as hot stone massage, reiki, and pre-natal massage, which helps bring relief to expectant mothers and unborn babies tired of sitting in the same position for weeks on end.
Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs. The treatments emphasize progressive rehabilitation, a method which allows doctor and patient to work together to track the effectiveness of treatments.

The massage-therapy program's four licensed massage therapists specialize in a variety of modalities to relax the body. They can administer deep-tissue kneadings or the flowing strokes of Swedish massage to alleviate stress, chronic pain, or muscular injuries caused by everything from car accidents to hula-hooping duels in the office break room.
The team of relaxation gurus at InsideOut Wellness includes two trained massage therapists and a reiki master who focus on rejuvenating bodies with affordable massages, reiki treatments, footbaths, and nutritional guidance. Amid candlelight and contemporary decor, massages are doled out in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments as therapists unkink spines and deknot muscles in a variety of massage modalities customized to meet clients' needs and preferences. Each muscle-melting session includes complimentary hot stones, and guests can opt to push their treatments past the borders of Pamperville with luxurious add-ons including paraffin treatments or aromatherapy scalp massage. A collection of old-fashioned bronze basins awaits tired feet with hot water and a soothing foot-soak mixture in preparation for an indulgent treatment further complemented by a pot of herbal tea and sugar-scrub treatment. While massage therapists focus on revitalizing exteriors, InsideOut's resident reiki master turns her attention to the body's interior as she revives waning energy levels with holistic reiki sessions for humans and their animal companions.
At Earth Is Our Mother Bodywork, licensed massage therapist and bodywork practitioner Tiffany Fisher takes every element of her clients' health into account, even ensuring that her treatments won't spark an allergic reaction.
