A certified practitioner of reflexology and hypnotherapy, Michelle R. Chesney heals both bodies and minds. During reflexology sessions, she massages hands and feet to stimulate the body?s internal healing mechanisms. This process not only helps regulate energy flow and circulation, it also delivers the benefits of a full body massage without requiring the guest to disrobe or even remove their chain mail. Hypnotherapy sessions, meanwhile put clients into a state of deep relaxation, a process that can help them to overcome bad habits such as smoking or overeating.
Jessica White's bodywork knowledge spans the globe. The licensed massage therapist might draw on India's ayurvedic tradition, for instance, and provide an abhyanga or marmabhyanga massage with warm oil to relieve stress. Or perhaps White will recommend a Thai yoga massage with relaxing stretches and soothing herbs, or a Thai head treatment to ease the discomfort caused by particularly heavy hats. Still other options, such as reflexology treatments and hand and forearm massages, focus on specific parts of the body to promote all-over peace.
The menu of wraps at Perla's Beauty Center might summon images of food to your mind. That's understandable, as it lists both chocolate and pomegranate varieties. You shouldn't, however, even think about eating, licking, or fondue-dipping these decadent wraps, as delicious as they may seem. Instead, just kick back as the treatments?which also come in mud, seaweed, aloe, and mineral varieties?relax the mind and soften the skin.
Perla's isn't just about making skin look radiant, though. They also offer services for the rest of the body. Nail techs gussy up digits during manicures and pedicures, and hairstylists fashion new looks with cuts, styles, and color treatments.
At Pure Beauty Salon and Spa, cosmetologist Candice wields Benniefactor and Redken products and dons a range of hats, performing nearly every salon service known to the beauty industry. Her lengthy menu of treatments heralds image-altering aesthetics, from starter locs and silk straightening to facial waxing. Along with salon care, Candice relieves clients' muscle pain and treats ameliorating migraines with customizable massages. The intimate salon space shelters male and female clients from the outside world, where stresses caused by work and obnoxiously loud commercial radio offer little retreat.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
Much like a cruise ship leaving port, a professional massage unties knots, sails away from reality, stops in ports of pleasure, and returns with a suitcase full of relaxation and seashell butter sculptures. Pure NV's 60-minute relaxation massage melts your muscles with gentle kneading that relieves knots, soothes aches, and enhances your ability to perform moderate to impressive tasks throughout your strenuous day. Pure NV’s friendly and experienced staff includes massage therapist Vicki, who uses her strong palms and wonderknuckles to relieve tense muscles and improve circulation. Each massage is tailored to an individual’s specific needs and problem areas, so the same therapist who can turn bricks back into clay won't liquefy a patient who warrants a pie-dough approach.
