Though clients flock to licensed massage therapist Dana Randall to experience the soothing effects of her hands, they soon come to realize that her eyes have the same calming powers. Before asking them to recline on the plush massage bed, Randall gets to know her clients face-to-face. Through these informal chats, she comes to identify which modalities might best help them shake off soreness and anxiety from trudging through long workdays or arm-wrestling boogie monsters nightly.
Randall’s breadth of knowledge is as extensive as the range of ailments she can treat: during each massage, she may draw on techniques that span Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, sports, and prenatal modalities. Through this integrative process, she zeroes in on trouble spots and endows physical and psychological benefits that range from easing lower-back pain to promoting an overall sense of calm. When she isn’t soothing muscles with her nimble fingers, Randall draws out built-up wax and other impurities from the ears with gentle ear-candling therapy.
