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.
At A Healing Place Massage for Wellness, there's a special focus on the lymphatic system. Using standard modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, the staff takes care of clients with relaxing techniques that calm the body. Therapists can also loosen tissue and relieve pain by practicing myofascial-release therapy, a blend of massage and stretching. Inspired by the lavender fields of France, the soothing scent of the flower permeates the air to relax clients, and everything from the walls to the products are splashed with a lavender hue.

In 2004, Rhonda Larkins underwent a lumbar laminectomy to fix a herniated disc, an injury she obtained while working as a package handler. Even after the surgery, she was left with pain and a lingering numbness in her left leg. Though physical therapy helped, she noticed that she felt particularly good after getting a massage. This observation led her to study Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy—a type of massage in which the practitioner uses bare feet to deliver flowing, effleurage strokes—under the practice’s founder, Ruthie Piper Hardee. Rhonda is currently on the mastery level of this modality.
At Prolong Symmetry, Rhonda and her team of licensed massage therapists specialize in more than 10 types of massage. Services range from more traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massages to Hawaiian lomi-lomi, an ancient healing practice during which therapists stimulate the body’s pressure points with their thumbs, elbows, and thoughts on early Dada filmmaking.
