Calming Hands Massage LLC
The certified massage therapists at Calming Hands Massage LLC understand that everyone's body is different. That's why every session starts with a chat about client-specific aches. From there, therapists Oriana and Sidney draw up tailor-made blueprints that fall within the broader categories of Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, and reflexology massages. Though the treatments differ, the overarching goal is to oust stress and help relieve chronic aches and pains. Located inside an elegant, white manor, even the spa building itself aims to put folks at ease.
