Licensed massage therapist Cassandra Dunlap has studied more than a dozen techniques in hopes of healing and rejuvenating her clients with integrative massage therapy. Rather than forcing each client to select a single massage style, such as reflexology or trigger-point therapy, she combines modalities based on individual ailments, recurring symptoms, or health goals. Before every session, Cassandra consults with clients to learn about any health issues—from chronic migraines to pulled muscles—and tailors her pressure and style to help ameliorate symptoms and reduce stress. House-made blends of aromatic oils inspire emotions and bolster positive moods; Pep Talk blends peppermint and sweet orange to bolster confidence, and Energize mixes lemon, rosemary, peppermint, and notes from the Rocky theme song. The spa's serene setting showcases a stone path winding through an indoor garden and an office decorated with ambient lighting and warm yellow walls.
