World-class Therapeutic Massage on the Island
At Island Massage Therapy, our sole focus is providing you with customized therapeutic massage solutions and personalized, nourishing facials.
We have 12 Licensed Massage Therapists and Registered Estheticians on staff, each with different specialties.(see the Services Page for more information). Our staff averages 12+ years of experience; and are all thoroughly trained in working with all populations, helping the entire spectrum of injuries and illnesses, revitalizing all skin types, and customizing each session to be exactly what you need right now.
During your time with us, you will have our undivided attention. We will work with you to determine exactly what you need from each massage or facial session, and develop an ongoing plan for optimizing your health and wellness with the use of therapeutic massage and skin care.
Both massage therapy and professional skin care should be seen as part of your health and wellness care routine. We always recommend a minimum of one massage and one facial per month just to keep the skin, muscles, joints, plus the nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic and endocrine systems in good working order. If you have a chronic illness or issue; more frequent treatments may be just what you need. And if you have a current injury, you might benefit from massage every few days until your body has stabilized enough to return to a routine weekly or monthly schedule.
We warmly welcome all people. No matter your illnesses, injuries or issues; we’re here to help you live your best life!
