The scents of exotic botanicals pervade the private treatment room at Elements of Wellness, where licensed therapist Tyrika C. Williams pairs the aromatic blends with soothing massage strokes and spa treatments. Williams claims that she followed her passions to a career in massage therapy, and those same passions remain evident in the way she carefully devises treatments to match the needs of each of her clients. Among her four modalities, relaxation massages soothe muscles with rhythmic Swedish strokes, and therapeutic massages facilitate faster recovery times after spending games of hide-and-seek in the trash compactor. Williams’s other spa therapies include an exfoliating foot treatment and a nourishing soy body wax to loosen muscles before and during a massage.
