Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay.

With a deep-seated belief in the therapeutic power of touch, certified massage therapist Jennifer Graves employs a variety of tailored techniques to relieve stress and expatriate pain.

Canji Healing Touch
Canji Healing Touch owner Jennifer Graves grew up in a culture that emphasized touch. But when she came to the United States, she realized people were more physically distanced. She decided to become a massage therapist and bring the calming, comforting power of touch to more people. Her business's name pays homage to both her birthplace of Canje, Guyana, and her belief that touch can heal.
Before each of her massages, Jennifer fills the room with the soothing aromas of lavender and sage oil, then turns on relaxing music. She's skilled in a variety of therapies, including Swedish massage—whose relaxing strokes banish stress and increase circulation—and trigger-point massage, which helps relieve the pain of tight muscles. Prenatal and postnatal massages help women's bodies as they handle the added stress of pregnancy. Jennifer also performs sports massages to release tension and soreness from being too awesome at football. Her therapeutic integrative massages aim to not only help bodies feel better but also rejuvenate clients emotionally and spiritually to nourish their whole being.
