After completing her massage studies at Texas Healing Arts Institute, Kristen Tagle tempered her skills in the fires of a local chiropractic office. She spent this time using modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and prenatal to treat muscular dysfunction while developing an understanding of how each helped soothe particular aspects of muscular stress. Now the owner of Heart & Sole Massage, Kristen works alongside therapists who demonstrate a similar commitment to these modalities and devise treatment strategies that address clients’ particular aches and pains. Initial consultations allow staffers to review each visitor’s medical history, past injuries, physical conditions, and ill-fitting nicknames, and after the sessions they can recommend exercises and self-care therapies to perform at home. A deep-blue couples room, meanwhile, allows those celebrating a date night or a platonic date night to enjoy the soothing power of massage together.
