The seasoned massage professionals at Essential Bodyworks invite guests into an atmosphere adorned with the sounds of soft music and scents of calming essential oils. The center’s resident muscle wranglers dance over distressed fascia using 10 available techniques, and spend 5–10 initial minutes investigating the specific needs of each client and acquainting muscles to a pair of new hands with an icebreaker game of 20 Questions. Therapists can deactivate agitated areas with trigger-point therapy or channel the strokes, kneading, and friction of Swedish-style to produce positive echoes throughout each system’s individual cave within the body. Reflexology reinvigorates circulation and accesses all-over body ailments through the feet, whereas chair massage reduces tension in the back, neck, and shoulders, allowing clients to pop in and out and remain fully clothed.
Stationed beside plush massage tables at Massage All, licensed therapists run their nimble fingers across backs, shoulders, and limbs as they perform a litany of massage services. Their therapeutic playbook features standbys such as flowing Swedish and firm deep-tissue strokes alongside more exotic modalities such as hot-stone massage and raindrop therapy. The therapists’ concern for holistic well-being doesn’t stop at joints and muscles; during allergy treatments, they apply river rocks and hot towels to the upper body to clear sinuses before dipping feet into a bubbly bath of cough syrup.:m]]
