Hands On Wellness Massage’s licensed massage therapist utilizes her medical background and more than 1,000 hours of training as she alleviates aches and pains from weary muscles. An array of therapeutic techniques based on Swedish massage methods begin each appointment, soothing exterior muscles with broad, sweeping strokes and pats with the latest IKEA catalog. Pressure increases as muscles gradually relax, allowing the technician’s nimble fingers to hone in on lingering knots and stubborn pains lurking in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, legs, and auras. Deep-tissue massages target tendons and delicate connective fibers between the muscles, relaxing musculatures, releasing painkilling endorphins, and bolstering flexibility. Soft, tranquil music wafts over the private treatment room, where mauve walls surround a cozy massage table swathed in white linens embroidered with the initials of clients’ seventh-grade crushes.
