Inspired by how massage helped her mother after a stroke, Tender Embrace Spa and Clinic’s Elise Procell combines techniques from four modalities to address her clients’ individual needs. Swedish massage mollifies tense muscles and increases circulation, and sports techniques prepare bodies for, or heal bodies after, athletic endeavors such as football games or lion-wrestling matches. Trigger point’s pressure-and-release cycles unravel painful knots, and neuromuscular’s concentrated massage focuses on the ligaments, connective tissue, and tendons of one specific body part. After the 60-minute massage, clients enjoy extra pampering with a mud mask to smooth the skin and a salt or sugar scrub to exfoliate the feet.
Cultivating a hushed, soothing atmosphere as she works, Elise encourages minds to melt away worries and stress. With her massage techniques and ability to speak to muscle tissue, Elise can allay discomfort from carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, tension headaches, and other maladies
