At A Room of Therapy, licensed massage therapist Octavia Stevens draws upon her expertise in half a dozen massage traditions to soothe beleaguered bodies. During 30-, 60-, and 90-minute massages, Stevens's hands skate on the surface of your back, boosting circulation and oxygenating muscles. As her customized strokes—in modalities such as deep muscle, sports, and neuromuscular—hone in on high-priority areas, pleasant scents from fragrant essential oils create a soothing, therapeutic effect. For an extra fee, Stevens can add hot towels, hot stones, or hot potatoes.
