At Body and Soul by Carla, the atmosphere alone might be enough to relax clients, with its umber walls, soft surfaces, and low lighting. But licensed massage therapist Carla doesn’t want her clients to merely relax. She wants them to escape from every scrap of tension quivering in the furthest sinews of their back, neck, and limbs. To achieve this, she descends on muscles with soothing Swedish massages, using long, gliding strokes of medium pressure to squeeze out aches and stir stagnant blood into carting off its backlog of toxins.
