There is certainly curative touch at Curative Touch Massage, but it isn't limited to massage. Of course, the massage therapists specialize in a number of therapeutic modalities ranging from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the Japanese energy work of reiki, all with the purpose of easing pain and reducing stress. But the center also staffs aesthetician and RN Tracy Hynes, who calls on specialized training when she performs her slate of five facials and luxurious add-on services, granting purified pores and natural beauty with her trained touch. Whether they receive a massage or a facial, clients leave with helpful tips on how to make their newfound transformation last, such as recommendations for stretches, skin serums, or switching to a music genre that isn't scream singing.

Though many massage therapists brag about the way they blend techniques to build a perfect personalized treatment, Johnathon Anderson has the credentials to back it up. The nationally certified therapist holds certificates in 18 different massage modalities, which he weaves together following physical and verbal cues from his customers. As clients unwind on the massage table, Johnathon edits their the frenzy in their minds into a slow highlight reel of serene images with classic Swedish massage, diminishes chronic pain with deep-tissue work, and uses prenatal massage to help expectant mothers overcome added joint pressure and tension brought on by complicated crib-assembly instructions.
Ryan McDonald is a wellness double threat with a background in fitness and certification as a massage therapist. His athletic know-how translates to both personal-training sessions and a specialty in myoskeletal alignment, which allows Ryan to identify the causes behind bodily pain, rather than just the symptoms. His massage techniques include myofascial release and craniosacral work, which help alleviate injuries caused from playing sports or waving a foam finger too enthusiastically.
Ryan McDonald's background in personal fitness informs much of his massage-therapy practice, which specializes in sports- and repetitive-motion-related complaints. Trained in several massage disciplines, including integrated structural therapy, Ryan applies a wide variety of techniques to address the causes, not just the symptoms, of his clients' discomfort. After a thorough evaluation, he may incorporate methods such as strain/counter-strain or myofascial release into his sessions, which take place within the soothing confines of Anew Massage and Wellness.
Serenity Spa staffers don't just makeover nails and complexions. They also makeover minds, expelling stress and encouraging relaxation during their decadent treatments. The power is in the details: manicures are made more luxe with skin-softening paraffin dips, foot baths detoxify with a volcanic ash known as bentonite, and herbal lotion adds an aromatherapeutic facet to already soothing reflexology sessions. Though Serenity specializes in mani-pedis, it also offers skincare treatments, such as microdermabrasion and vitamin C facials.
