Drift into a meditative zone during Gloria's symmetrical routine which is customized and adjusted for each session. With rhythm and controlled pressure, this systematic approach is enjoyable, gently loosening tightness, restoring posture, and releasing natural, feel-good, brain chemicals, the body's natural painkillers.
Her holistic technique is based on classic Swedish style. She addresses key muscles and pressure points, systematically switching sides of the body. Her performance includes hallmark moves like tapotement, compressions, and gentle stretches. She accents her work with Japanese Zen Face massage, featuring small, repetitive motions that rejuvenate the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders. And she compliments her repertoire with traditional Reflexology, thoroughly relaxing nerves in the feet and hands!
Park on the side of the building or on the street and use front entrance.
There is additional parking behind the building. If you park behind the building, there is a back entrance which can be tough to find! Look for a little deck with a black awning, and a glass door labeled Massage On University Avenue and MB Studio. Take a long hall, zig-zag past a salon, then enter the vestibule.
Either way, once you are in the vestibule, take the stairs or elevator to the second floor.
It is recommended that you do not arrive more than 5-10 minutes early to your appointment. The door is kept lock and there is no receptionist. If you arrive early, the door may be locked and you may have to wait.
If you arrive early, you may text Gloria. If you need to confirm your appointment or ask for directions, you may text Gloria. Please be aware however that she cannot reply if she is driving or in session. Thank you!
