With nearly 30 years of experience as well as training in South Africa under her hands, licensed therapist Cheryl McIlraith unties muscles and invigorates soft tissue with an array of massage services. The Swedish massage uses medium, gliding pressure, and the deep-tissue delves farther into subdermal tissue to draw out embedded tension with firm, cross-grain strokes and a whistle only muscle knots can hear. Smooth, heated river rocks banish tightness and regale muscles with stories about mischievous Huckleberry Finns in the hot-stone massage. Alternatively, acupressure massage targets key points across the body to unblock energy pathways. Muscles recovering from physical exertion and injury get a boost from the sports massage, which also helps athletes achieve the flexibility needed for the most competitive of chess matches.
