Spa massages are all very well, but when you want physiologically trained massage therapists who are masters of the craft of understanding the body, and using touch and pressure to make you healthy, then go here. The atmosphere at this place is very relaxing, but the focus is on working out the kinks in your muscle tissue which are constricted, strained, locked, or injured.
I have been going to Maggie Wissert for years. I call her a "Massage Sage" in that she combines the science and art of body healing through touch and pressure in the way that only a very experienced person who loves their craft can. I've been to numerous massage places and I know the difference between a "Sage" and a good masseur or masseuse.
Maggie will start by checking in with the client about what their problem spots are. She then works through the whole body and focuses on specific trigger points where knots and tension build up. She doesn't overwork the trouble spots, rather uses the power of pressure over time and also massages pain-referral spots in order to release constrictions. She will also describe what she is doing so the client's mind focuses on release. It's amazing how body awareness will help to heal. I get off the table feeling like revived person! It helps she is a sensitive and compassionate listener with a good sense of humor in her approach to healing. I cannot recommend more highly!
This massage practice also offers luxurious coverings, heated massage tables (if you choose) and meditative music. I've also had really solid experiences with Rita, Darla and Sandy.
