All About Massage's licensed cosmetologist, Joan Collins, revives faces and bodies through services that use the latest LED technology to slough away dead skin and stimulate cell growth. Each 60-minute LED microcurrent treatment starts with a thorough expurgation that uses a Clarisonic cleansing brush and SkinBorn cleansers to wipe away grime and geriatric cells. A 20%–30% glycolic acid peel removes dead skin from epidermal terrains, before pulsating microcurrents of LED light fill and firm bodily surfaces. Age-absolving wavelengths shrink pores while tightening droopy skin, diminishing crows feet, and softening wrinkles with tender compliments. Choose the nonsurgical facelift procedure to minimize hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and rosacea. Each noninvasive treatment can tighten loose skin on under arms, chest, hips, and backsides, toning problematic places where cellulite collects. Once treated, patients return to their daily routines or full schedules of searching for coded messages in TV static without experiencing any downtime.
Licensed massage therapist Marianne Crandall draws upon her experience in spas, massage clinics, and doctor's offices to exile muscular tension with four massage modalities. Marianne first consults with patrons on their backs' problem areas to better isolate and assuage their individual issues. Hands smooth over sore and stiff surface tissues in the therapeutic massage and soothe expectant mothers' strains by wrapping torsos in lullaby sheet music during the prenatal massage. Deep-tissue or myofascial-release sessions duel with clients' deep-seated aches, zeroing in on afflicted zones with more intense pressure to increase range of motion and relieve chronic pain. After their treatment, physiques can boast reduced pain, diminished stress, and the ability to limbo under office doors.
Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.
