At Hands on Healing, licensed massage therapist Joanna Wilson customizes each facial and massage to suit each patron’s personal pampering needs. Her customized facial begins with a skin analysis to diagnose common ailments such as rosacea, fine lines, graffiti, or hyperpigmentation. After cleansing and exfoliating the face, Joanna then bathes skin in a steam bath followed by high-frequency extractions, before a soft facial massage and nourishing mask restore lost luster to all skin types, and a relaxing hand-and-foot massage keeps ousted stress from relocating south. For aching backs, Joanna offers eight modalities of massage that can blend together to form one tailored tension-melting experience. Swedish massage combines gentle, flowing strokes with focused kneads to oust nervousness and stiffness, and sports massage uses compression and light effleurage to improve circulation and relieve discomfort caused by hoisting too many trophies overhead. Hot stones accompany each massage, and Joanna can also customize massages for cancer and post-breast-surgery patients.
