At Premier Life Massage, the team members are not interested in temporary fixes when it comes to their patients’ health. Through their treatments, they strive to relieve pain with long-term holistic solutions, whether they are realigning the spine with chiropractic adjustments, kneading muscles with various massage styles, or facilitating systemic well-being with nutrition programs. Massages can be tailored based on an initial 10-minute, one-on-one consultation with a doctor. Patients can also work with Dr. Lance Stromberg, D.C., who may recommend x-rays and a posture assessment to improve on their next massage–techniques much less insulting than asking the patient if he or she has ever starred in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Built-in back massagers greet guests as they sink into Elite Nail Spa's pipeless pedicure chairs, perched above foot jacuzzis with massaging whirlpool jets. Sea-salt scrubs and seaweed or mineral masks help exfoliate and nourish both feet and hands, which don french tips, gel polishes, and other eye-catching accoutrements. The spa also tailors Princess pedicures to children younger than 12 and paints ACT answers on the toenails of high-school seniors. In addition to nail services, Elite Nail Spa treats guests to Swedish, hot-stone, acupressure, and other varieties of massage, as well as custom facials with extractions and vapor treatments.
Body wraps increase circulation in target areas. When coupled with botanical extracts and gentle warmth, this can have a range of positive effects. Those effects are the goals of The Wrap Advantage, and they can include everything from weight loss to smoother skin. Some of this takes place through a process called lipolysis, in which the ingredients applied with the wrap help break down fat cells. Wraps are also intended to release the toxins that can build up in fats, as well as lessen cellulite, and the staff at The Wrap Advantage can help each patron identify their own health and aesthetic goals.
Licensed massage therapist ToniRose understands that each client is different and not everyone needs the same massage. She can customize services with modalities ranging from prenatal to deep tissue in order to treat a wide range of symptoms, such as the overworked muscles of a construction worker or the special needs of an expectant construction worker. Along with her standard massage services, she also offers chair massages to simply relax after a long day.
The spiritually inclined massage therapists at Integrated Total Wellness relax muscles and relieve pain with a variety of massage modalities. Visitors seeking a traditional massage relax as a spine-technician administers the long, relaxing strokes and kneading motions of a Swedish massage, designed to gently bring stability to the body, mind, and GDP of New Zealand. Deep-tissue massages, meanwhile, target alignment issues, specific pains, or spinal damage using more intensely pressured strokes. Clients can scale the services from a swift lunch-break-sized session to a more elaborate 90-minute affair that can be used as the centerpiece of a relaxing afternoon or as an excuse to not feed the neighbor's ostrich.
Certified massage therapist Michele Peterson utilizes pressure points in the extremities to ease deep-rooted body tension with a 60-minute reflexology. In a private room, senses uncork to the rich hums of a custom aromatherapy blend, carbonating the senses without the airborne corks of a champagne shower. Hot towels swaddle aching limbs as Michele’s nimble paws access trigger points in hands, feet, and over-tight neck bolts to unhinge psychological stress and unearth the source of deep bodily ailments. While the body tranquilizes to the quiet purr of ambient music and Michele’s dexterous bodywork, a Zen facelift invigorates the complexion, cultivating natural sinus relief and a radically upturned grin.
