Clients flock to Gloria Preate, certified massage therapist, because she offers something many other massage therapists do not–effective pain management. Many of Gloria’s customers have eliminated the need for medication or significantly reduced their prescriptions since experiencing her talented touch.
As a 12-year veteran of massage therapy, Gloria often goes above and beyond for those seeking relief from pain. She has studied with Olympic team physicians in China to learn how to alleviate pain due to traumatic sports injuries and related conditions. She even makes house calls for individuals having difficulty getting to her at the Millennium Salon and Spa (Milleniumspasalon.com), 299 South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre.
Knowledgeable, Experienced and a Unique Approach
“I’ve taken many different modalities; so when somebody comes in with a specific problem, I incorporate all of them together,” noted Gloria. Customers experience Gloria’s basic relaxation massage and, because she can feel the tension in each individual’s muscles, she customizes the massage so that the areas needing additional focus are given the attention they need.
Another reason why Gloria is so good at what she does is that she approaches massage by focusing on the person’s whole muscle group, as opposed to only working on the area that is producing the pain. She has found that when a person experiences knee pain, it can be due to muscle problems in the hip or ankle or both. Therefore, Gloria works the entire muscle group.
Additional benefits of massage can include a reduction in blood pressure and stress, restoration of elasticity to muscles, and muscle relaxation. As muscles relax, any restricted or impaired organs are also relaxed; therefore this can improve function and sometimes fend off disease. Massage also helps move lymph fluid through the body, which eliminates toxins from our system.
Friendly and Welcoming Atmosphere
Gloria and Jody Brozusky, co-owners of the spa, have deliberately created an atmosphere in which all are welcome, and it shows. The spa boasts a relaxed and friendly environment serving a diverse clientele. The staff is knowledgeable with different hair types and offers a Spanish-speaking hairstylist.
The Millennium is spacious and can accommodate groups looking for fun while getting pampered. “We are all about the fun,” noted Gloria. Groups bring their own food and drink while they enjoy their customized spa party in the beautifully decorated and immaculate facility.
In addition to massage, this full-service spa offers hair, nail, waxing, tanning and facial services. Packages start at $105, including 5 different services. The staff is happy to customize packages for men, women and children. The services accommodate all budgets, with monthly specials and a student discount.
Gloria is available at the Millennium Salon and Spa, by appointment. Additional massage therapists can accommodate walk in requests. Call the Millennium at (570) 823-0654 for more information.
