A member of the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals, Janelle King draws on both eastern and western approaches to massage when alleviating her clients of pain. She specializes in hot stone, reflexology, and myofascial release, along with prenatal and postnatal massage. When she isn't soothing moms-to-be, she studies for her doula certification so she can support women during the birthing process. In keeping with her passion for both traditional and holistic treatments, Janelle volunteers her services at charity events to help raise funds and awareness for diseases such as breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Panico Salon & Spa was named the best salon in New Jersey by Beauty Entertainment magazine, but the award-winning team's services go well beyond hairstyling. Massage services include Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone modalities, and other treatments include fruit-scented body scrubs and a wide range of healing facials and skincare. The salon prides itself in being an education based teaching salon. It provides continuous education to its staff via a variety of resources such as an intern training academy as well as an educator development program.
An oasis of pampering and relaxation, Exclusive Day Spa offers a wide array of massage modalities, a bevy of aesthetic services, and emotional coaching. The bodywork experts train in massage techniques including Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy, which soothes the muscles and nostrils alike. Facials and peels cleanse skin and fight the signs of aging, whereas beauty injections and dermal fillers provide more dramatic youth-enhancing results. Their laser skin treatments target fine lines, acne, and rosacea, and laser hair removal and waxing banish unwanted stubble, helping patrons earn the coveted nickname "Smooth Operator."
As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.
Michelle is a licensed massage therapist, licensed holistic practitioner, personal trainer, and graduate of the school of ministry. Michelle, the woman behind Strong Hands Massage Therapy, truly does have strong hands: they’re the same hands she used block, jab, and swing her way to a fourth-degree black belt in karate. At her Ramsey massage studio, however, she uses her strength for healing rather than combat.
Before starting any massage, Michelle consults with each client to determine their individual needs and goals. Then she soothes muscles and connective tissues with custom-tailored kneads and gliding strokes. The treatments can relieve not only pain and tension, but issues such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety caused by listening to the Jeopardy! theme song on repeat too many times. Clients can also opt for pampering details such as hot stones or aromatherapy.

Acupuncture sessions help with a wide range of issues, including stress, weight loss, pain management, allergies, and even wrinkles.
