Whether you are interested in massage simply for relaxation or to seek help with muscular issues and pain relief, the massage therapists at Ancient Arts Healing Center are fully dedicated to your health and well-being. “Our goal is to present the most knowledgeable and professional staff in the Central and South Jersey area,” says Tamara Rapciewicz, who opened the center in 2010 after five years as a manager at another large area spa.
“In an age of technical and at times impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive, and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself,” she explains.
The therapists at Ancient Arts Healing Center always use eco-friendly and organic products, including calming or invigorating scents from the custom lotion bar. Ancient Arts Healing Center was labeled the Best Massage in town in 2012 by the Trentonian.
The classic Swedish massage is the signature massage at the center, and each of the five therapists has their own unique style of combining the long fluid strokes of traditional Swedish massage. Sports massage, reflexology, Ohashiatsu, and other modalities are also available at the Center.
Headache relief from sinus or migraines is another specialty at the center, using cold marble stones and aromatherapy on the scalp, face, neck and shoulders. Upper Body is perfect for anyone with back and neck issues and deep tissue massage can help eliminate chronic muscle issues.
The center also offers Myofacial Lumbar/Sacral Release for deep stretching of the connective tissue surrounding the muscles that cause chronic back pain and prenatal massage for mothers-to-be. All of the therapists are experienced in Reiki.
Rapciewicz feels it is important to give back to the community. Ancient Arts Healing Center participates in a number of special events, including community days for Fox Chase Cancer Center. They also work with Mercer Street Friends and collects gifts for needy families through an Angel Tree each Christmas. “Our clients contribute, making it a wonderful event each year,” she says.
