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.
