Hands in Motion at the York House Spa
Hands In Motion owner Deborah Alexander-Kouassi folds her background in athletic training into each massage as she helps to restore range of motion, relieve tension, and dispel stress. Soothing heat flows from electric massage tables as hands iron out knots and boost circulation from foot to crown during Swedish massages. During therapeutic deep-tissue bodywork, firm pressure subdues spasms, calms inflammation, and knits decorative patches of muscle fiber to repair damaged soft tissue in bodies prone to chronic pain. Warm towels embrace weary feet and backs at the start of every session, and organic scents from Danielle and Company soothe both mind and body with calming essences of oat, ivy, and lavender. An aloe-vera-infused body wrap stimulates a detoxification reaction that can result in the loss of girth over fatty areas, as well as smoother and firmer skin. The candlelit serenity inside Hands In Motion relaxes clients in a way unfelt since the nine-month yoga session leading up to their birth.
