The massage therapist at Marjon the Salon reduces stress and eases body tension with calming or intensive one-hour massages. Patrons sip a refreshing complimentary mimosa, and the muscle-soothing maestro relaxes weary backs with Swedish techniques, including long, fluid strokes, kneading, and occasional tapping to communicate with nerve endings via Morse code. The Swedish style, designed to decrease anxiety and improve circulation, can be administered with a gentle or firm touch or with scarlet-hued gelatin fish. For a more powerfully focused massage experience, a deep-tissue massage finesses fascia with forceful pressure, targeting areas of chronic pain and knotted tension.
Vintage furniture juxtaposed with modern animal prints imbue Marjon’s interior with a charmingly eclectic atmosphere. Revitalized visitors also receive a 20% discount on purchases from the boutique, which showcases an assortment of stylish jewelry and handbags, as well as a variety of aromatherapy candles to light a home’s dim corners and mask its morning breath.
