$30 for a 60-Minute Candy-Cane Massage ($65 Value)
During this enhanced Swedish massage, the therapist puts muscles and minds at ease with a blend of traditional effleurage strokes and techniques such as reflexology and ohashiatsu. A peppermint-stick shea-butter cream aids the therapist’s strokes, hydrating skin and invigorating the senses.
Ancient Arts Healing Center
Though their studio’s name suggests otherwise, licensed massage therapist Tamara Giacomozzi and her staff remain focused on the present. When a client walks in to Ancient Arts Healing Center for a massage or naturopathic medical treatment, they devote all of their attention to the act of healing in the here-and-now. This client-centered approach is evident in all aspects of the studio, from the specialized medical practitioners on staff to the lotion bar that allows clients to choose custom scents for their massages.
Ancient Arts must be doing something right, because it has earned the Readers’ Choice award for “Best Massage” in the Trentonian for the past two years. The studio’s therapists earned that honor by mastering 12 massage styles, some of which incorporate cold marble stones, herbal packs, hot stones, and aromatic oils. Aside from the flagship massages, a slate of alternative therapies includes Japanese reiki, nutritional counseling, and card readings.
