Massage therapist Melissa Bond tenders tranquility with a slew of techniques designed to augment healing and reunite disconnected minds and bodies. Soothe tense tendons with the Swedish massage, a flurry of light finger strokes that can relax racing cerebrums, assuage rigid frames, and finger-paint 19th-century picnickers. Deeply stressed backs can opt for the Ashiatsu Oriental bar therapy, during which the massage maven grips an overheard bar system while prodding deep-down muscles with her feet, coaxing out anxiety and well-hidden candy stashes. This innovative fusion of Western and American techniques kneads world-wearied skeletons with a framework of pushing, pulling, and stretching movements that can agreeably change the structure of damaged soft tissue.
007 Stress Therapy
Using a pair of bars to keep her balance, licensed therapist Melissa Bond climbs atop the massage table and uses the pads of her feet to relieve tight muscles in her client’s back. This practice is known as Ashiatsu Oriental bar massage, in which Melissa has earned certification—along with three other modalities—during her eight-year tenure as a therapist. In a calming treatment room, she unravels stressful knots with gentle Swedish massage or firmer deep-tissue treatments, rooting out tension and rare coins buried in musculature.
