Laura Fusco, Rose Ford, and their staff at The Massage Garden in Hamilton offer customized massage sessions based on the needs of the client. Each of the massage therapists at The Massage Garden specializes in different types of therapeutic massage: massage designed to relieve pain associated with chronic and acute conditions.
“Of course there is also a relaxation element to every massage we give. That is an important part of massage,” says co-owner Rose Ford. The Massage Garden offers results-oriented bodywork. Whether you want relief from TMJ, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, aching shoulders, headaches, or if you need to de-stress and relax, each session is unique.
The Massage Garden uses high quality, hypo-allergenic creams and non-mineral oils. Only soy candles are burned in the office, and tables are heated. “In short, we strive to provide our clients with a quality experience from start to finish,” says Rose, who has been practicing massage since 1997. Ford specializes in Integrative, Deep Tissue, Pre-Natal, and other massages, as well as Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. In this type of massage the therapist, supported by parallel bars, uses her feet to give a deep muscle massage “that helps to release trigger points by elongating fascia, or connective tissue.”
Her business partner, Laura, has also been practicing since 1997. She provides an integrative session incorporating various therapeutic modalities. She specializes in CranioSacral Therapy, NeuroMuscular Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release and LomiLomi. Each of the other four massage therapists at The Massage Garden has been practicing for at least 10 years.
For Valentine’s Day The Massage Garden also offers Couples Massage as well as a Couples Massage Lesson, where the partners learn basic relaxation massage. The Massage Garden also offers a senior citizen discount.
The Massage Garden is conveniently located at the Five Points intersection in Mercerville, close to I-295, Route 1, Route 130, Route 206, the NJ Turnpike, and Route 33.
