Zebee Voss, An Island Touch

Zebee Voss has had her hands on most of the island. Ask stressed-out carpenters, lifeguards, and moms if they know her, and they’ll wince before sagely nodding yes. Ross’s so-deep-they’re-almost-torturous tissue massages (no pointless ‘fluff and buffs’ here, she says) leave clients weak and exhausted—and then, a day later, completely revived. Three peaceful treatment rooms and the promise of a pain-free back help overcome the spa’s faintly mood-killing location above a Vineyard Haven doctor’s office.
