Overseen by the president of the Shiatsu Association of British Columbia, the certified and registered therapists at Angel Hands Wellness lead bodies toward a deeply relaxed state during aromatherapy massages. Sinew soothers enhance strokes by blanketing muscles with plant-extracted essential oils, which work by absorbing into the skin, stimulating the brain via inhalation, and cloaking the body’s natural pizza scent. The pleasing aromas claim to deliver benefits including calming the nervous system, improving mood, and easing pain. During the reflexology portion—a practice dating back to before 2000 BC—therapists simulate nerve endings on the feet to target corresponding areas of the body, thereby relieving maladies such as stiff necks or bed head.
