"[I like] helping clients feel better, so they can enjoy life with a few less aches and pains," says David Brown, owner of Elements Massage Alderwood. To that end, he often recommends clients sign up for a 90-minute session with one of the many massage therapists in his employ. The sizeable chunk of time allows them to focus on particularly troubling areas of tension or pain, while still making sure to work on the rest of the body, as well. To David, the best compliment he or his therapists can receive come from clients noticing the benefits of their work: increased range of motion, reduced pain, and a diminished fear of how much hands look like spiders.

Diane Garris of Healing Energy Massage calls the body a "complex bio-machine," and believes it functions interdependently with the mind and spirit. She seeks to bridge the gap between Western medicine and other healing traditions, believing that they can work in tandem with one another for a greater effect. As such, her massages are not just meant to relax and de-stress, but to help restore and heal. She also performs energy work to help draw together the mind, body, and spirit, and her aromatherapy treatments work on a sensory level to foster overall wellness.
