The massage therapists at So Serene soothe away tautness from tired physiques with Swedish and hot-stone treatments. Swedish massage combines gliding strokes with kneading techniques to remove tension and clingy koala bears from backs. Varying degrees of pressure stimulate blood circulation, carrying oxygen-rich nutrients to wearied regions and helping increase range of motion.
The addition of heated stones assists in relinquishing rigidity by imparting chronic regions in soothing warmth. Massage therapists place warmed-up rocks on backs and manipulate the musculature with sweeping motions and unsolvable riddles. Sparsely decorated massage suites impart an air of tranquility, and radiant lamplight glows from a table as water trickles down a miniature waterfall.
So Serene Massage
Licensed massage therapist Kimberly M. Johnson employs seven different styles of kneads to release her clients’ physical and emotional tensions. An annual participant in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Kimberly knows firsthand that athletic movements—as well as day-to-day activities—can put a strain on the body’s muscles. She combines her knowledge of anatomy with a compassionate approach during 60- to 90-minute Swedish massages that unwind knotted muscle fibers with alternating pressures. Aside from this popular modality and its deep-tissue sibling, Kimberly targets athletic ailments with specialized sports massages and prepares muscles for mashing with warm, smooth stones placed along the back or hurled at spots of tension.
