Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
As a medical aesthetician, Julie Kline has trained under award-winning plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Dayan, where she learned advanced skincare techniques and ways to get the most out of the products she uses. She helps her clients fight the signs of aging with microdermabrasion treatments, microcurrent therapies, and chemical peels. For gents, she performs men's facials that ward off razor burn. Julie is also a certified permanent-makeup artist, which allows her to apply indelible cosmetics to those with sensitivities to traditional makeup or faint features due to medical conditions.
Therapists Carolyn Strahan and Beth Stammen both honed their massage talents at Gateway Technical College, where under the tutelage of highly trained teachers, they learned muscular anatomy, pressure tolerance, and how to open a pickle jar with one finger. Now anyone can seek their skills at the Massageville studio in Florence. In the comfort of a private room, they perform circulation-inducing Swedish strokes, sports therapy, or firmer deep-tissue pressure to help alleviate tension and muscle aches. Hot stones and scalp massages
also work to maximize relaxation.
