Jasmin King considers massage a higher calling, and her devotion to the art of healing is evident in both her practiced hands and her spirited personality. For further proof of how seriously she takes her craft, take note of her fluency in modalities that range from the gentle strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue and sports massage. Her knowledge extends even to specialty modalities such as Hawaiian lomilomi, which ties together flowing, graceful strokes with a meditative focus.
King’s healing abilities don’t stop at massage. Her spa treatments include facial massage and body wraps, the latter of which cocoon clients in scented fabrics that release toxins and promote the growth of nascent butterfly wings.
At iMassage Austin, a massage isn't a luxury—it's a part of a healthy lifestyle. The spa's therapists know that a massage's health benefits extend beyond relaxation—they include improved blood circulation, stress reduction, and more range of motion. That's why they offer services ranging from the Swedish massage, which uses smooth, gentle strokes to relieve muscle aches, to the deep-tissue massage, which uses concentrated pressure to break up stubborn knots that may be causing headaches or insomnia.
