Massage therapist Darla has a keen eye for diagnosing cranky muscles. At the start of each massage session, she observes your posture and listens to any complaints you have about body aches or the latest American Idol episode. She takes this information and begins the task of sorting out tight spots. That might mean incorporating hot stones to reach deep down into sore areas or changing up her techniques to accommodate expectant mothers. Darla and another therapist also work in tandem during couples massages.
