Serenity Touch Massage
A board-certified massage therapist with a background in healthcare, Treacy Collins isn't afraid to balance the clinical work with the pampering. To wit: she loves peppering her massages with fragrances and aroma oils that add another layer to the proceedings. Though when it comes to bodywork, she's all about technique. Treacy applies treatments that have a direct effect on her clients' complaints. That is, she administers Swedish massages for the stressed, deep-tissue massages for those seeking relief from tension and pain, and pregnancy massage for those carrying the weight of two, or three if you count the watermelon they're holding. Treacy's other services include foot reflexology, couples massage, and sea-salt foot scrubs served with a beverage and a foot bath.
