The treatment table at the Radiant: Massage Therapy and Integrative Wellness cushions visitors as a therapist combines stress-relieving bodywork with fundamental meditative techniques. This holistic emphasis stems from the owner's extensive massage training and his adherence to harmonizing Zen and Shambhala Buddhist philosophies with heart-centered massage. During massages, he employs Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to knead organic oils and lotions into musculature, either promoting circulation or coaxing out muscle-bound toxins. The therapist encourages clients to focus on their breathing throughout the session, which leaves them as calm as a hibernating triceratops.
