Natalie Maibenko, Unique Verve

We like it rough, but that bruise on our shoulder? Ouch. And do-nothing spa massages? A waste of a good nap. With a just-right blend of relaxation and technical know-how, Natalie Maibenko at Unique Verve can adjust to whatever your need may be—a lulling back rub to relieve stress, serious bodywork for injuries and muscle tightness. No matter the case, she uses her custom-made aromatherapy oils to deliver an intensive massage session that’s both effective and blissfully quiet.
