Gaylan Roth knows pain. At the age of 10, his mother was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and he would often try to relieve her ailments with gentle yet therapeutic massage. Seeing the way his own hands could take away some of her suffering, Gaylan decided to pursue massage therapy as a career in order to bring the same type of relief and healing to others.
Today, he augments traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massage with aromatherapy and tension-melting hot stones, which are placed upon acupressure points to loosen muscles and melt any icebergs clients have accidentally swallowed. On select evenings, his therapists use their hands to deliver simultaneous stress melting during couples massages or safe and therapeutic relief during prenatal sessions. The spa’s treatments are designed to alleviate ailments ranging from anxiety to migraines, though all services are custom tailored to treat the unique needs of every client.
