When clients are candid about their needs, licensed massage therapist Abria Ebright can cherry-pick massage modalities that fit their preferences––and that's when best results are achieved. Abria may access lower later muscles––or fascia––with firm deep-tissue bodywork, or administer more energy-based healing with reflexology or shiatsu techniques. Abria also offers hot-stone massages to help improve clients’ range of motion, and promote blood circulation in wooden marionettes that have dreams of becoming human.
Guided by family traditions of holistic medicine and respect for nature, Pamela Reynolds helps restore her client's health at Inspired Thru Nature, a natural health center that specializes in colon hydrotherapy. A family history of digestive disorders informs Pamela's practice, and many of her treatments aim to detox the digestive tract and return the body to its natural, healthy state through methods such as ionic footbaths, infrared-sauna sessions, body wraps, and ear candling. Irodology, one of Pamela's signature treatments, uses noninvasive technology to examine the iris, which provides pointed insights into overall health and celebrity-lookalike matches.
Soothing aromas calm clients' senses as they enter the tranquil waiting room of Serenity Wellness Studio, which houses Msprity Spa Luxuries. Founded in 2006, Msprity Spa Luxuries is the brainchild of owner Msprity, whose background in health care and special knowledge of sensitive skin informs each of the spa's customized treatments. In addition to skincare and facial services, the spa further relaxes clients with beauty treatments, body wraps, and massages. A range of products is also available so customers can maintain glowing skin at home, saving them the trouble of always holding flashlights under their chins.
At Sweetpea Spa & Gifts, staff members analyze clients' skin types and gauge their degrees of muscle woe so they can design services that best suit visitors' needs. Botanically based medical-grade products rain down on kissers during the custom facial's exfoliation treatment, which scrubs away dead skin cells and velcro earrings. The facial cleanse then reduces fine lines and hydrates skin to create polished complexions. During the massage, Swedish-style strokes team with deep-tissue techniques to assuage muscle tension. Gliding effleurage strokes stimulate circulation and prepare muscles for deeper pressure designed to overthrow tyrannical muscle knots. The massage loosens up muscles to help to prevent injury and forestall muscular discomfort caused by playing an accordion with one's shoulder blades. The spa's adjoining gift shop collects products that can be used to summon tranquility during luxurious moments alone.
