During an all-purpose Swedish massage, therapist Carlton Cargill customizes strokes and rhythmic taps to each client’s needs, providing wide-ranging relief from bodily aches and pent-up stress. The rolling kneads are paired with a soothing lotion, helping to improve blood flow. Appointments are available Tuesday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Cargill Massage Therapy
Carlton Cargill trained at the Memorial Hermann School of Massage Therapy and put his new license to work at the Memorial Hermann Spa. There, he mastered Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques. He also studied anatomy and physiology, the two disciplines that explain how doctors glue our muscles to our skeletons. Now, Cargill works inside his home studio, where red walls and white linens create a modern yet relaxing ambiance. He treats sore bodies with therapeutic kneads that can help restore emotional and spiritual balance.
