Amanda Pagano and Dane Tjaden, co-owners of Viva Massage, draw upon their certifications and 900-hour courses to mend muscles with an array of massage modalities. During each Swedish massage, therapists bolster circulatory systems as they manipulate muscles with light pressure and the gentle kneading motions used to interrogate a Fabergé egg. Deep-tissue massage targets and loosens concealed connective tissues with slower and more forceful strokes that coax wounded fibers into healthier states. In couples massage sessions, contented sighs drift from both halves of duos, mingling in the air of a private room with accents of geometrical art.
Serenity Massage & Body Work
Whenever they mend a set of muscles, the therapists at Serenity Massage & Body Work draw upon years of extensive certification trials and training hours. It's that same dedication to their craft that helped them master massage techniques ranging from gliding Swedish strokes to targeted deep tissue pressure. They deploy these moves during individual sessions, helping clients reap benefits ranging from stress relief and reduced pain to lower blood pressure and better range of motion. In addition to their solo services, team members also double up for signature "four hands" sessions, and help couples steal romantic moments during side-by-side couples massages.
