For many, massage is pure indulgence — a relaxing treat while vacationing. Others consider it nothing short of necessity — a vital regimen to help maintain an overall healthy lifestyle.

Whichever way you look at massage therapy — or even if you’ve never before experienced a professional massage — the one name to remember on St. Thomas is Zeno.

Raised on St. Thomas, Zeno Cohen studied massage throughout the mainland, as well as Puerto Rico. He has been providing massage services to residents and visitors for more than 25 years.  

Specializing in medical massage, Zeno said, “I use a combination of techniques from deep tissue to effleurage.” A French word meaning “to skim” or “touch lightly” effleurage is a series of soothing strokes used in Swedish massage to warm up the muscle.

Highly skilled at all types of sports massage, Zeno also adapts the massage table with inflatables to accommodate women in all stages of pregnancy. “I’m also a Reiki Master – level three,” said Zeno.

Local residents usually make appointments to see Zeno at Tree House Massage on the north side of the island. As a special service to guests of Flamboyan Resort, Zeno offers in-room and poolside massage. He travels with a full table, massage chair, or both.

Typically, Zeno uses coconut oil for his patrons. “It’s good for all skin types,” he said. 

For those interested in quality essential oils, Zeno’s wife, Cassandra, is a Young Living Distributor. Founded in 1993, Young Living is a world leader in the cultivation, distillation, and production of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils and aromatherapy oils.  Also available from Cassandra: natural sunblock lotions, bug repellants, and soaps.

Appreciated throughout the Virgin Islands for its decorative and medicinal qualities, the Aloe Plant is native to the Mediterranean coast of Africa. Traditional uses of the thick “gel” range from soothing sunburn, scrapes, and cuts to relieving sore throat pain. Whole plants, hung upside down, are sometimes used as a natural bug repellant.
