Amy Johnston, a skilled massage therapist and cosmetologist, eases away stress and tension with meticulous massage and skin treatments that use Dermalogica products. Clients relax in preparation for their individually tailored therapies while soft music wafts through the air, purging minds of the stress of scheduling War of 1812 reenactment practice. A one-hour, deep-tissue massage uses firm pressure to negotiate with notoriously tense muscle groups, forging tepid peace agreements between stressed shoulder blades and brutish lower backs. Swedish and signature massages typically use more gentle strokes, and they increase circulation and improve ease of movement.
The signature facial cleanses and tones complexions with a skin-balancing mask, and the extraction facial goes one step further by plumbing pores for debris. The Back-N-Shape back facial also relies on extractions and a purifying mask, this time to cleanse the part of the body that’s hardest to reach with a mop. The foot scrub washes away calluses and impurities, and the salt-glow scrub exfoliates skin with Dead Sea salts, aromatic oils, and the ghosts of melted snowmen. A sugar-scrub option is available for gentler exfoliation, making it appropriate for sensitive skin.
After graduating from Miller-Motte Technical College with degrees in massage therapy and aesthetics, Amy Thoma opened Total Transformations 5 years ago to help evict tension from clients with meticulous massage and skin treatments. Amy has now had her license for more than 20 years, was born and raised in the Charleston area but does not see herself leaving anytime soon.
During massage sessions, soft music wafts through the air as she focuses on individual needs, customizing treatments to each client and never letting muscles fall asleep angry. As a master cosmetologist and Dermalogica expert, Amy uses Dermalogica and Image skin care products to care for the skin. She skillfully nourishes skin with sugar scrubs, sea-mud treatments, microdermabrasion, and Image skin peels – all in a comforting, laid back, and friendly atmosphere. She is also certified is pre and post natal massage, infant massage, integrated reflexology and other massage modalities.
