Licensed massage therapist Phoenix Alexander understands that massages are about more than pampering. With more than 20 years of experience giving clinical massages to help clients overcome injuries, even her luxurious spa massages help unwind muscle knots, release tension, and remove stuck-on stethoscopes. Her specialty modalities include reflexology and craniosacral therapy—two styles that help reinvigorate the body’s natural healing abilities. But massage isn’t all that Phoenix offers; she also enhances outer well-being with noninvasive massage face-lifts, herbal body wraps, and glacial-marine-mud masks.
Stress settles deep into the muscles; it becomes back pain, headaches, and eventually full-on spasms. That’s why licensed massage therapist Jennifer offers massages with varying degrees of pressure, ranging from relaxing Swedish strokes to firm, deep-tissue kneading. Jennifer also welcomes clients to peruse her line of handcrafted children’s blankets, soaps, and candles, ideal to decorate a home or World War III panic room.
