After 24 years as an IT developer and analyst, Lucy Balyan realized it was time for a change. After noticing people were more invested in the external world than they were in themselves, she decided to help clients reconnect through therapeutic massage at Vintage Massage.

In her spacious private studio, she administers calming Swedish, lomi lomi, and aromatherapy massage to help clients let go of daily stressors. Clients with severe physical discomforts can enlist deep-tissue, craniosacral, and sports massage to maintain and help heal damaged muscles, all while lying on a heated massage table.

OMG Massages's owner, Charles Rodriguez, knows a thing or two about health and wellness. He's spent the past decade in the gym training for professional muay thai and MMA fights. Those competitions, like everyday life, take a toll on the body, so he decided to help people recover and relax by starting a mobile massage business.
Clients can book appointments online for a variety of therapeutic services, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and reflexology. And though OMG Massages's therapists will gladly travel to your home or office, guests can also swing by their welcoming studio for those same soothing treatments.
Olympic Spa therapists specialize in deep tissue massage, releasing tension through gentle touch, firm pressure, or even the use of their full body weight. In addition to modalities such as deep-tissue or hot-stone massage, they also provide back-walk massages, carefully placing their feet as they stride along a client's back to massage away tension. Though they sometimes use hard pressure, everything else about their establishment is soft and inviting, from the draped fabrics to dim, warm lighting of sparsely placed lamps and napping fireflies.
From hot stones on the back to four human hands working the shoulders and joints, Royal Care Massage and Spa offers numerous means of counteracting tension and stress. The certified massage therapists here practice a variety of full-body massages, including the aforementioned four-hand massage, which entails two therapists working together to ease discomfort. To enhance its menu of services, the spa also offers body scrubs and aromatherapy that can make any treatment feel even more indulgent.
The Woodhouse Day Spa specializes in one thing: making you feel like you're at the center of the universe. Wrapped in warm towels, guests luxuriate as wild lavender, hot stones, four hands, or organic seaweed lull them into a state of deep relaxation. American Spa clearly agrees, having lavished multiple awards on Woodhouse for the spas’ cozy digs, talented staffers, and 70-strong menu of decadent treatments.
At E-Souls Massage Studio, one thing takes precedence over all others: the client. Here, not only do massage therapists listen to each individual's concerns, they customize each massage to help help guests get the most relaxation and healing possible. That means that every massage offered—from the basic Swedish massage to the deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massage—could incorporate elements of the others.
