Licensed and NCBTMB-certified massage therapist Melissa Mower relieves stress and dissipates aches and pains with a blend of high-quality natural oils, masterful mitts, and serene stones. The one-hour Swedish massage doles out a mellifluous maelstrom of rolls, kneads, and percussion strokes topped with a dollop of oils and lotions. Besides outsourcing persistent ouch-sources, the massage also helps to improve body circulation and gives you the mental clarity needed to finish the most difficult of Sudoku puzzles. The stone massage's penetrating heat and alternating cold expands and contracts the circulatory system, improving the lymphatic and immune systems. The sensory back-and-forth transports patients into a deep state of relaxation, leaving them calm enough to return to their job as a quality-tester at the grenade factory.
An Artist's Touch
After graduating from the Ogden Institute of Massage, Melissa Mower practiced her craft in spas and chiropractic offices alike. Today, she brings the skills she honed in those contrasting environments to her very own studio. Mower prides herself on the open communication environment that she cultivates with her clients, whose massage "wants" are just as important to her as their massage "needs." She addresses these issues and more with bodywork from modalities that include deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, and trigger-point massage. During hot-stone massages, Mower soothes deep-seated pain with carefully placed simmering rocks; during infant massage, she eases youthful discomfort by placing babies on clients' sore backs.
