Massage clients can opt for the gentle kneading and flowing strokes of Swedish massage or a more-intense, mobility-restoring sports massage—or, if they're pregnant, a prenatal massage received while lying on one's side. Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese technique that creates suction with small glass cups, lifting tissues and, in the process, helping stimulate the circulation of blood and lymph fluid.
Couples can unwind together during a 90-minute private massage class, learning basic Swedish massage routines for the shoulders, neck and back. During the "tandem/four-hands" massage, two therapists deliver synchronized strokes to release muscular tension and encourage deep relaxation.
Studio Inc. NW
When most people think of massage, they might think of muscles. The licensed massage therapists of Studio Inc. NW certainly help work out knots and tension, but they're also paying attention to the bodies in their care on the cellular level, from blood flow to lymph drainage to toxin release. Depending on the clients' needs, their hands can work on tissue at many different depths, whether it's the flowing strokes of a Swedish massage or cupping therapy, thought to affect the body up to four inches below the skin's surface. Another style adds extra hands to the hands-on experience: the four hands massage, performed by two therapists or one dexterous cat therapist. Studio Inc. NW's space is decorated with cocoa browns, cool leaf greens, and minimal fussiness, so nothing distracts clients from their quiet relaxation time.
