Strength of the Hands' logo has ten fingers, and the staff offers almost as many types of massage. Deep-tissue melts away aches with firm pressure, while Swedish involves long, flowing strokes. The seven massage therapists also specialize in the soothing heat of hot towel massage and assuage the pains of expectant mothers with prenatal massage. Beautification is just as important as relaxation, as the service menu also includes facials, body waxing, and barnacle removal.
At Total Wellness Massage, clients often relax so deeply that they fall asleep on the table—and not only the ones who are there for a relaxation massage. Experienced therapist Jill Holden makes sure that even sports-rehabilitation and injury-treatment massages feel soothing. Integrative massage techniques allow her to access deep layers of tissue without causing pain, so she can achieve therapeutic goals with lighter strokes. During each session, she applies advanced techniques such as myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, and active/passive range of motion to address each client's individual needs.
Elizabeth Joy Williquette understands that sometimes, life can make you feel like you're walking in circles. As a reiki master teacher and licensed massage therapist, she is dedicated to helping people stay the course through those trying times and emerge with their well-being intact. In the comfort of her cozy studio, Elizabeth can place her hands over the body's energy meridians to promote healing or take a more direct route to tension relief with flowing Swedish bodywork.
The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
Licensed massage therapist Lily MacFaydian tends to backs in a private studio nestled inside Acupuncture Works. Here, Lily comforts muscles and restores vitality with a range of treatments. Gliding Swedish massages boost circulation and chase away stress, and deep-tissue sessions knead the tautness out of pulled muscles. Lily makes sessions extra relaxing by applying hot towels and essential oils, not by leaving out a ventriloquist?s dummy with eyes that seem to follow you around the room.
