After moisturizing backs with Banyan Botanicals essential oils, licensed massage therapist Antoinette Williams kneads physiques with tension-alleviating massages. Antoinette’s therapeutic hand strokes improve range of motion in struggling muscles and range of emotion in struggling actors, incorporating the strokes of Swedish and deep-tissue massage or specialized kneads customized for pregnant or geriatric patients. Antoinette can further enhance massage sessions with steamy hot towels or mini facials, in which essential oils seep into skin via a mask of Dead Sea mud and chamomile. With both anti-inflammatory and healing properties, the oils can soothe acne-prone skin, diminish the appearance of sun damage, or repair bruises from years of practicing Three Stooges–style pratfalls.
