Sessions include an additional five-minute pre-massage interview and five minutes of changing time.
During the Swedish massage, therapists coat skin with lotion and relax muscles with long, gliding strokes, percussion-like tapping, bending, and stretching. By contrast, the deep-tissue massage incorporates techniques that move across the grain of the muscles with more intense movements and pressure.
After documenting past and present ailments, the therapists at Massage Evolution guide clients into private treatment rooms containing soft massage tables and warming blankets. Once inside, the therapists move to the rhythm of the spa’s soft, soothing music as they knead and coat muscles in hypoallergenic creams and lotions. They use a variety of techniques, promoting relaxation with Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pokes, reflexology movements, and sports-therapy massages tailored to the needs of injured athletes and retired monster trucks.
