The protoplasmic soothers at Adagio Body Works and Wellness vivify body branches and expunge tension from taut tendons with relaxing and restorative massage therapy. A 60-minute wellness relaxation massage, which utilizes Swedish massage techniques, aims to stimulate circulation and increase serotonin levels while soothingly gelatinizing muscles into the consistency of lutefisk. These seasoned staffers target superficial layers of tissue with a medley of soothing strokes designed to uncoil muscle knots wound tighter than sailor-tied pretzel bread. Ideal for curbing patterns of chronic tension, a 60-minute therapeutic deep-tissue massage zeroes in on afflicted areas with deliberate strokes and concerted pressure to treat soft tissue stricken by aches and deep-set pain pockets.
Sore tendons may also surrender to a 90-minute hot-stone massage, where a trained therapist peppers guests with heated panoplies of smooth, oiled stones designed to ease achy backs into a blissful state of deep relaxation. Swedish strokes then pair with the stones’ penetrating heat to relieve tense muscles and sore joints brought on by crowd surfing in the Carlsbad Caverns.
Adagio Body Works and Wellness
The name is musical—“adagio” means to play “at ease”—so it’s fitting that the services at Adagio Body Works and Wellness are meant to work in harmony. Each visit begins with a consultation, during which therapists craft a treatment plan to suit your needs. These plans span from hot-stone massages and facials to mud wraps and scrubs, so clients can emphasize either hydrating their skin or recovering from trapeze accidents involving eating ribs for lunch.
