The Kneaded Spot
The Kneaded Spot specializes not only in familiar massage styles such as the Swedish technique, but also BowenWork, a three-decade-old therapy style invented by famed practitioner Tom Bowen. The outfit's massage services tend to privilege relaxation over pain relief, though massage can still lead to side benefits such as more restful sleep and an end to screaming matches with your trapezius muscle. BowenWork, on the other hand, focuses on alleviating pain, realigning and resetting the body through gentle rolls over precise points in order to aid in recovery from accidents and sports injuries.
