THERAPISTS

Zen Massage Therapists, Salt Lake City

When it comes to massage therapy, no amount of exotic marble, fountains, lights, and monograms on fancy terrycloth robes and slippers can equal the skilled, experienced hands of a master massage therapist. A luxurious interior can make a great impression, but when you’re back in your clothes again walking out the door, the only thing that matters is how you feel in the real world. The quality of any spa experience is quite literally in the hands of the therapist. Nobody understands this better than ZEN Massage of Salt Lake City. Our partner-therapists make ZEN Massage what it is. We partner with only the best therapists who share a sincere passion for the craft of healing and the art of massage. But most of all, our partner-therapists are approachable. They know how to listen and to understand. They want to make you feel great. They enjoy what they do because they do it exceptionally well.

Dr. Helen Litovsky, LMT

“My goal is to show our clients how to minimize work-related repetitive stress injuries and help people recognize and control stress-driven habits like smoking, drinking, and over-eating. My approach focuses on producing immediate physiological changes in the body which lead to increased awareness of the client’s mental and physical condition. My technique targets stress areas in the client which are responsible for chronic pain, discomfort, and loss of sleep. With proper application, the application of ZEN therapy restores the body’s natural posture and resolves the discomfort which interferes with prolonged and restful sleep.”

Helen Litovsky received her Doctorate of Medicine from the National University of Ukraine in 2002 and successfully defended her license before the US National Board of Medical Examiners. With all of the great opportunities in medicine, it is truly a testament to the innovation and potential of ZEN that she has postponed her clinical residency to help oversee and develop the ZEN Bodywork System.

Brice Bowhay, LMT

Brice is a Board Certified Structural Integrator and a Licensed Massage Therapist. He has been a licensed EMT and has a diploma in personal training.   He got into bodywork after becoming frustrated from chronic pain and discomfort stemming from imbalances and scoliosis. He sought out experts in many other fields, but it wasn’t until he experience structural integration bodywork that he found permanent solutions and was equipped with relief. Structural Integration is a philosophy of the important fact the body is an interconnected system of nerves and connective tissue. He uses a series of sessions to progressively and incremental make long-term changes to connective tissue quality and movement patterns. In short, it resets posture, and disperses spots on chronic tension, offering a permanent solution for unwinding and releasing patterns of pain, stress, and trauma that accumulate from decades of injuries, physically and emotionally.
This involves safe, comfortable touch, and gliding strokes of medium pressure, which should feel extremely relaxing and help improve breathing and walking efficiency. Structural integration is a collaborative partnership, and clients can expect to stand up and notice that their body “feels different” and “lighter” and “more grounded” after each session. These changes persist from one session to the next, making Structural Integration a powerful catalyst to facilitate interpersonal transformation, which was the intention of S.I. according to Dr. Ida Rolf, the founder of the field who pioneered the first blueprint for how to organize the body in line with gravity.
