Specializing in sports and medical massage, the licensed therapists at Embody rejuvenate muscles and minds with relaxing, restorative treatments. During the 60-minute advanced massage, clients sprawl across heated tables in a private, earth-toned room amid trickling fountains and the soothing aromas of essential oils and flapjacks. Drawing on a minimum of three years’ experience, Embody’s advanced therapists employ a variety of styles, from simple stress relief to more therapeutic modalities. Orthopedic massages rehabilitate weary joints and tangled marionette strings, and lymphatic drainage helps to flush out the capillaries, decreasing swelling and inflammation.
Alternatively, the holiday spa package kicks of with a one-hour massage and an aromatherapy treatment, during which clients imbibe soul-swaddling fragrances such as wild roses and eucalyptus tingle. Next, an herbal choice hand or foot treatment cossets flippers with a warm wrap infused with essential oils, salubrious herbs, and unicorn tears. Specialists then scrub phalanges before dousing them with an invigorating spray and slathering them with a healing balm. Herbal choice treatments can ease arthritis, assuage plantar fasciitis pain, and soothe exhausted opposable digits after an intense thumb war. Lastly, guests select the gift set of their choice, which comes nestled in a black bag adorned with a gold bow. Each spa, detox, pain relief, or incense set joins forces with a client appreciation card for 25% off any service.
As a native Alaskan, the owner of Embody understands the physical toll that the area’s harsh winters and surplus of outdoor activities can take on muscles. The massage center’s services take into account this Alaskan way of life, and its certified therapists cater to their neighbors' pain-relief needs with therapeutic bodywork that targets muscles ailing from cold weather or the heavy burden of layered sweaters. Candles, plants, and rock fountains surround the plush beds in the treatment rooms, where therapists ply muscles with soothing massages that ease medical injuries and quiet stress. Essential oils and footbaths can be added on to any treatment; if you crave further relaxation, take home some of Embody’s collection of locally made teas, lotions, and bath salts.
