It's always time to relax at Time to Relax Massage Studio. The licensed and certified practitioners here ease aches and pains with a variety of soothing massage styles. Clients have their pick of relaxation, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages, each tailored to address individual needs. In addition to performing massages in their peaceful studio space, Time to Relax's technicians can also travel to homes and offices to treat achy backs and overworked loveseats to onsite chair massages.
The staff at Custom Relaxation takes healing seriously: before each massage, a staff member assesses sensitivities and areas of pain to find their causes, and offers clients advice so they can extend relief between appointments. Each massage is customized to treat individual issues, whether that means working out stubborn knots or soothing the muscles and the mind with relaxing strokes. Hypnotherapy can help clients train their subconscious in breaking habits or changing behaviors.
The Fountain Clinic can't undo the cosmetic effects of time, although the staff can help manage the signs.

Treatments can help restore the skin's naturally youthful tone, texture, and radiance, while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles or other blemishes. In addition to rejuvenating appearances, The Fountain Clinic also strives to restore clients' confidence and leave individuals feeling reinvigorated, like they've just run a marathon while drinking espresso shots.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Clients often report that they've been disappointed in the past with massage therapists who seemed afraid to touch them. I can safely and confidently deliver the massage you need for true relief, even if you have special health concerns.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
To help people from all walks of life live with less pain and stress in their daily lives.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that my clients are always happy to see me, and even happier when they leave!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
_A client once told me that even though he travels all over the nation, he'd never found a massage therapist better than me. Of course, no one can be the perfect massage therapist for everyone--but when I'm lucky enough to get comments like this, I know the effort I put in every day is worth it.
