A home studio run by a husband and wife duo, The Shop eschews frills in favor of a no-nonsense approach to massage therapy. The studio’s staff recognizes that the frenetic pace of modern life can lead to real health problems. In order to combat the stress of sitting in a traffic jam or the muscle spasms associated with hurling a stalled semitruck off the highway, they rely on a technique known as Royal Touch massage. This specialty therapy combines the penetrating pressures of a deep-tissue massage with the ancient Chinese techniques of acupressure. Their other healing modalities are a bit more straightforward, though hardly less effective. The list includes a soothing craniosacral therapy along with Swedish, deep-tissue, aromatherapy, and sports massages.
