If you are familiar with “feel good” massage, you will find that our practice is built on a different approach to help you recover and maintain your health, resulting in prevention of further discomfort. Yes, massage offers a delightful way to relax. But it can also treat postural dysfunction, injury, even chronic pain. Many of our clients come via referrals from physicians who understand how therapeutic massage can assist their efforts to handle your case.

Through advanced techniques and training, using myoskeletal manual therapy plus corrective exercise, we assess and treat common imbalance patterns, overuse injuries and chronic pain. We delight in creating happy clients one day at time.

May I introduce Elena Theodora Barbos, to provide professional attention to your facial and throat areas.
I am an aesthetician from Eastern Europe with almost twenty years of experience in the profession. For me, being an aesthetician is not a trade but a passion.
I customize all my treatments around each person—male or female—in order to provide the best skin-care solutions to restore, rejuvenate, and revitalize the skin. To achieve those goals, I utilize organic European brands and derma cosmetics. The reason I choose to use these products is that I am confident they are manufactured with the finest quality ingredients. My skill and techniques, paired with these superior products, achieve the finest results possible for my customers.
How do I restore skin? I employ a methodology that cleanses the skin using a product specifically designed for each certain skin type, followed by gentle massage. I then follow that with a circular exfoliation to help slough off dead skin cells. This leaves the skin soft and tender, prepared for the next steps in the treatment.
Depending on your type of skin, I apply steam for an appropriate period of time followed by the extraction procedure, if needed. I then disinfect those areas and close the pores with a high- frequency machine.
The next step is the application of a mask and serum, followed by a European-style massage according to the needs of the particular skin type, to relax or stimulate blood circulation and to add firmness to the skin.
The final step is to apply moisture on newly refreshed skin, which is essential for all skin types to replenish the skin cells. Throughout the treatment, I will consult with my client to advise about skincare and the most appropriate products for their at-home regimen.
I am passionate about what I do, and great skin care is not an accident. It is by appointment!
