Licensed massage therapists can oust stress with the flowing strokes of a Swedish massage or loosen embedded knots and Double Windsors through intense deep-tissue mollification.

Treat tired cheeks to a refreshing facial massage, which begins with aromatherapeutic steamed towels to exfoliate pores. A comfort guru then fosters improved circulation and reduced toxins by gently massaging façades and undoing frozen emoticons.
Wellness goes hand-in-hand with relaxation, and at Bodywise Massage, the staff strives to boost both. Everything from Swedish and deep-tissue massages to spa treatments such as body wraps and foot baths soothe the senses while the creature comforts of candlelight, crackling firewood, and soft blankets surround gests throughout. But these health mavens also aim to get their wards up and moving. Classes strengthen bodies and minds alike by focusing on qigong and mankind's favorite way to think about a society run by kittens: meditation.
