For licensed massage therapist Yolanda Grant, the effects of each massage session should continue well after the client has left the table. She accomplishes this in two ways: first, by choosing a special tea to enhance the benefits of each massage. If a client has overactive muscles, for example, she brews a cup of cherry-bark blend to help ease spasms. In addition to handpicking a tea for every guest, she educates clients on her approach, telling them how each massage modality impacts the body, from encouraging relaxation to stimulating the immune system. Beyond massage, Yolanda offers select spa services, such as body scrubs, detoxifying body wraps, and aromatherapy in scents such as frying pork loin.
