Combining a background in elementary education and more than 30 years of experience in massage, Profoundly Peaceful Massage's licensed therapist, Mary Beth Rezek, balances minds and bodies with customized massage treatments amid a stress-free environment. Minds are unwound with an one-hour Swedish massage as long, flowing strokes are sent gliding across the body, helping to improve circulation and kneading out aches. Bestowed from the deft hands of Kahuna Auntie Maile Napoleon, Rezek deftly enacts an ancient Hawaiian lomi lomi massage by commencing with a healing chant. Blending vibration, elbow, and deep-pressure work, the massage style aims to relax muscles during the one-hour session while releasing stress faster than a cheetah drives a getaway car. The session concludes with a hot-stone application and a tapping of bamboo sticks lightly across the skin.
