Licensed massage therapists and technicians at The Gentle Dragon shepherd clients toward holistic health with knot-defying massage and an on-site apothecary stocked with botanical products. During the integrated holistic massage, therapists address individual muscle aches with a combination of flowing effleurage strokes, deep-tissue techniques, and stress eviction notices tapped in Morse code. Strong hands glide over tense areas on a wave of aromatic essential oils, stimulating circulation and kneading toxins from their muscular hideouts. Then therapists wind an herbal poultice around clients’ necks before picking out reflex points on the hands, feet, and ears with gentle squeezes and a swinging searchlight. Each reflex point corresponds to a specific organ function or muscle, triggering full-body relaxation and greater overall health.
After massage treatments, faces bask in the steam rising from a mug of herbal tea, and chocolates tickle palates and woo sweet teeth before asking them to the prom. Clients leave The Gentle Dragon bearing a goodie bag stocked with assorted pampering and relaxing products from the apothecary.
