Sunflower Massage Studio isn't just a relaxing refuge from the everyday—as a local business, it's also a refuge from the revolving-door approach of chain massage studios. This means that in addition to a tension-relieving massage, customers get a bounty of other thoughtful amenities, such as a 30-minute buffer zone before and after the massage to give client and therapist time to wind down and discuss the session. It also means the therapists won't pressure their clients to choose a massage modality, as every session is customized to their individual needs. Of course, add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy are available, as well as specialty styles such as prenatal, myofascial-release, and sports massage, which helps athletes' muscles recover from sporting events and emotions recover from tense exchanges with referees.
Eydie, a massage therapist with 10 years experience and a graduate of the healing arts center, named Harmony, Health, and Healing for the values it espouses. At Harmony, Health and Healing each therapist tailors each unique session to tap into the best system to work with each client. During massage sessions, they bring minds, bodies, and spirits into balance, encouraging aches and troubles to scram over the course of each 60–120 minute session. Thai passive stretching, long Swedish strokes, and hot stones characterize many of the massages, while specialized treatments like myofascial release and reflexology each target specific trouble spots or acupressure points. Traditional Chinese facial massage, meanwhile, beautifies as it relaxes.
