While studying alternative medicine, Wilson Cruz became fascinated with the body's ability to regenerate, and explored how massage therapy aids this process. Soon after earning his massage therapy license, he opened Get Centered Muscular Therapy Studio where he manipulates clients' physical structures into healing themselves through personalized massage sessions. He draws from the multiple techniques in which he's been trained to customize each session to increase circulation and improve range of motion. Neuromuscular therapy increases flexibility and improves stamina while speeding up post-workout recovery, and the strokes of deep-tissue massage work to loosen scar tissue and lengthen muscles so clients no longer have to sleep hanging upside-down.
Esha Washington describes herself as a cancer-conquering, God-loving, beach-bumming, jewelry-making mother of two with a passion for roller coasters, indoor skydiving, and of course, massage therapy. Her experiences, like her interests, have been diverse. She graduated from UMass Boston with a degree in business, and after 20 years as a successful realtor, decided she wanted to change people's lives more directly; that's when she took up therapeutic bodywork. She attended the massage program at Salter College, where she learned relaxation techniques such as hot-stone therapy, deep-tissue massage, and napping in a kangaroo pouch. Today all can seek Esha's expertise of her own Head to Soul Therapeutic Massage clinic.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
With over 3 years professional experience I quickly learned a lot of the tricks of the trade. With knowledge in a variety of techniques aimed at optimal health and wellness, I have been able to provide relief for many people and gained quite a following of customers.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I am as passionate about my family as I am about massage.
With this in mind, I quickly discovered the best way to have the best of both worlds was to start my own business.
What do you love most about your job?
This is an easy question..........everything!
I love being able to bring relief to so many people.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback I have ever received has been in regards to a technique I use known as positional release.
After coming to me in a lot of pain, this client was amazed that I could bring her so much relief so quickly and without any discomfort.
Stress and muscle aches are no match for the massage therapists at Get Your Massage Now. They offer a fleet of massage modalities that tackle everything from shoulder tension to poor blood circulation, each coupled with a health consultation. During Swedish and full-body massages, they use gentle, long strokes to impart relaxation and melt away soreness. They up the intensity during deep-tissue massage, employing concentrated pressure to break up stubborn knots. What's more, they harness their knowledge of other massage forms such as shiatsu, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy to introduce clients to treatments they may have never tried before.
For licensed massage therapist Joy Clarkson, healing is more than just kneading away muscle knots. As a 13-year massage-therapy veteran, she's grown to incorporate meditation and sound into her practice at Enjoy Holistic Healing. Sessions may use gongs and Tibetan singing bowls, as well as her voice; this may include chanting, toning, or speaking the phone book very slowly. However, because she tailors these sessions to each individual, she may use as few or as many of these methods during massages, alongside lomilomi, reflexology, and other modalities.
Beyond just relaxing massages, the team at Healing Hands Massage & Esthetics want to provide a retreat from daily life, and a place to allow both body and mind to decompress. Personalized to each client, visits vary depending on their needs, whether an individual is hoping to lose weight or simply get a tan before hitting the tans-only beach. Massages range from the long, flowing strokes of restorative Swedish massage to the gentle, all-over kneading of a lymphatic drainage treatment, which works to detoxify the body and lessen the appearance of cellulite.
