About this business
From Our Editors
Unlike most spas, there are usually at least three people in the room during massages at Achieving Inner Peace. This is because owner and massage therapist Karmen Buchhop specializes in prenatal and postnatal massages, couples massages, and extra indulgent four-hands massages. During each couples massage, Buchhop and a fellow massage therapist simultaneously work on clients, who can chat, hold hands, or see who has the most believable sleeping face as they sink deep into a relaxed state. Alternatively, two therapists can devote all their time and healing kneads to one person during a four-handed massage, which is designed for those who find it hard to relax during bodywork sessions. Finally, during the prenatal massage, Buchhop can help relieve the fatigue, stress, and aches of pregnancy with gentler strokes that keep both mother and child healthy and comfortable. But no matter what technique Buchhop employs, she always discusses lotion, oil, and cream preferences during premassage consultations, so every massage is tailored to a client's needs and desires.
