Licensed massage therapist Gaylan Roth nurtures tender back muscles with services that instill relaxation while relieving chronic pain and other bodily woes. Gaylan coaxes out stress with Swedish massage’s combination of smooth, flowing strokes and gentle kneading that unwind surface-level and lower musculature. Alternatively, deep-tissue techniques reach to greater depths to enable relaxation. During the hot-stone massage, Gaylan places warm stones on acupressure points, transmitting heat deep into the body so it can loosen muscles and melt any icebergs clients have accidentally swallowed. To enhance the soothing effects, the stones may be used as massage tools, left in place, or skipped across backs as needed.
During special sessions held five nights a week at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., relaxation-seeking duos breathe in the soothing scents of aromatherapy during 90-minute couples massages. Male and female massage therapists choreograph the treatments using simultaneous Swedish strokes inspired by the rowers who powered Viking longboats. All of the solo or couples treatments alleviate many ailments, such as lower-back pain, migraines, and depression. Gaylan keeps flexible hours and offers a list of frequently asked questions on his website for inquisitive clients.
Gaylan's Healing Hands Massage Therapy
Gaylan Roth knows pain. At the age of 10, his mother was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and he would often try to relieve her ailments with gentle yet therapeutic massage. Seeing the way his own hands could take away some of her suffering, Gaylan decided to pursue massage therapy as a career in order to bring the same type of relief and healing to others.
Today, he augments traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massage with aromatherapy and tension-melting hot stones, which are placed upon acupressure points to loosen muscles and melt any icebergs clients have accidentally swallowed. On select evenings, his therapists use their hands to deliver simultaneous stress melting during couples massages or safe and therapeutic relief during prenatal sessions. The spa’s treatments are designed to alleviate ailments ranging from anxiety to migraines, though all services are custom tailored to treat the unique needs of every client.
