Massages don't always require a table. At her studio inside Treetop Massage, licensed massage therapist and certified Thai massage practitioner Nina Lombardo begins each session by asking clients to lie down on a padded floor mat. She then combines elements of yoga, acupressure, and massage to guide recipients through stretches and compressions that decrease aches and anxiety. Optional Thai herbal bundles further soothe the senses with hot or cold temperatures intermingled with inviting aromas such as turmeric and ginger. Nina also frequently partners with her teacher, Ariela Grodner, for double-practitioner massages, an easier alternative to scouring the world for a four-armed massage therapist.
