Instead of asking patrons to go out of their way and drive to a massage studio, the licensed massage therapists of Aesthetic Bodyworks Mobile Massage relieve tension through sessions in the comfort of each client's home. Beyond traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, they can rejuvenate the senses with aromatherapy essential oils and erase chronic aches with Japanese finger-pressure techniques during shiatsu massages. The team also provides the relaxing entertainment during Ladies Night In parties or the Mega Party package, where therapists dole out 5- to 10-minute chair massages for a minimum of 50 people or one 50-person conga line.
Once the province of only luxury spas and often dismissed as simply an indulgence, massage has since joined the ranks of legitimate, proven pain-management techniques—and Dee Wartenberg thinks that it’s about time. This is because as a licensed massage therapist, she has seen the benefits that medical massage can have on those suffering from pain and injury firsthand. Less a luxury and more an integral means of coping with pain, medical massage entails ultraspecific, results-oriented attention to injured areas of the body, as well as the supporting and opposing tissues. This focused system of bodywork, often accompanied by a physician’s prescription and a Get Well balloon, has been proven to relieve any number of symptoms, from back pain to decreased joint flexibility to stress.
Dee Wartenberg is a steadfast believer in the healing powers of medical massage, and she utilizes her skills and passion for healing during each session. She offers medical, sports, and trigger-point massage to alleviate clients’ suffering, but she doesn’t stop there. As a reiki master, Dee is also qualified to perform reiki treatments, and for those who are simply looking for a blissful, spa-like escape from general stress and tension, she happily doles out uplifting Swedish massages. Free-parking is available to all customers of Medical Therapeutic Massage.
Stylists at Artistic Design Hair Studio give their clients the styles they want, whether working with natural curls or working against Mother Nature with Japanese straightening systems and permanent waves. They cut and color locks with rich single-process hues and style them with products from Color Proof, Nuema, AG, and Baco Color. Away from the salon floor and the sound of split ends shattering on the ground, massage therapists ease tension with the gentle kneads of Swedish techniques, and aestheticians purify pores with Repechage skincare products and mineral makeup from Bodyography. The nail technicians put their finishing touches on new looks with manicures and pedicures with glossy OPI polishes.
At LaRae's Hair Salon, the eponymous proprietor Tanya LaRae leads a strike force of six stylists, all of whom possess at least 15 years of experience in styling the hairdos of men, women, and children. The team performs comprehensive dye jobs and chemical treatments powered by high-end products from such brands as Matrix and Sebastian. To accommodate those who prefer to fly by the seat of their pants or sole of their shoes, the salon accepts walk-ins Monday–Saturday.
A day at Jade Nails & Massage Spa is enough to refresh your whole look. Nail stylists start by adorning cuticles in an elegant and protective exterior of french tips, crystal gel, or silk wrap. Aestheticians take over from there, beating back signs of skin aging with seaweed and vitamin C facials. Other staffers can even apply individual eyelash extensions that last for up to five weeks. To cap off the day, clients can schedule a Chinese massage session, which releases muscle tension but keeps your inner child trapped inside in case you get a chance to play Bop It.
