Certified therapist Annie Ogle relieves muscular tension with a variety of massage techniques. The hot-stone treatment warms up stress to the idea that it's not appreciated, while aromatherapy sends up soothing smells to spellbind nostrils and guide minds into a state of relaxation. During the Ashiatsu massage, the therapist uses her foot to deeply knead knotted tissue by grasping overhead bars and allowing gravity do what it does best—pluck people from the sky and force them to walk on top of other people. To mollify muscles with a lighter touch, customers can opt for the Swedish massage, which loosens high-strung tendons and includes a rejuvenating facial and reflexology for the feet.
