The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Before she started kneading backs, Melinda J. Herring studied the body's architecture as a sculptor. That artistic training gave the Washington University grad her built-in attentiveness to the interconnectivity of musculature—integral to her current gig as a licensed massage therapist and her brief stint as the Lincoln Memorial’s official chiropractor. Today, her living, breathing clients choose from a broad menu of massage styles that range from deep tissue to tension-targeting hot stone. In addition to the standard modalities, Melinda's specialization lies in orthopedic and oncology massage, and she also spends time as a North Little Rock massage practitioner for CARTI, where she brings relief to patients undergoing radiation therapy.
From their stress-free oasis inside The Park Hotel, the therapists at Fusion Massage dissipate stress and tension with gliding Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressures, and soothing aromatherapy oils. As their name implies, they specialize in an ultimate fusion massage that blends traditional modalities with Thai stretching. When the therapists’ nimble fingers aren’t enough, they melt away aches with hot stones that can be gently placed on muscles or hurled at backs to break up clumps of tension.
During each session, a spray of fine crystals polishes away dead skin cells from the face, neck, and chest, working to reduce fine lines, age spots, and acne scars. A high-frequency facial treatment follows to help stimulate collagen, and sessions draw to a close with a hydrating mask.
Owner Heather Jobe mixes and matches an arsenal of beauty techniques, choosing the combination of treatments that will help each client look their best. The licensed aesthetician uses FDA-approved microcurrent technology during Beautiful Image services, which also include facial and body sculpting. During the Beautiful Image facial, she combines microcurrent with facial reflexology and acupressure to reduce the appearance of cellulite and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and clear up acne and rosacea. She uses the same technology to target specific zones around the body, reducing cellulite and toning muscle during the Beautiful Image body-sculpting and toning treatment. Alternative treatments include facials that utilize a steam exfoliation and purifying mask, or back treatments that cleanse pores and draw out impurities using only a seaweed mask and a human-size centrifuge.
Lead by an experienced surgeon with 30 years of experience, Hot Springs Surgery and Vein Clinic's staff rejuvenates clients’ skin with 3DEEP face and neck treatments.

The 30- to 45-minute treatment proves almost painless for most patients.
