Once visitors pass through the teal door and step into Excellence In Touch, a tranquil space decorated with purple walls, bright paper lanterns, and a gurgling fountain helps guests transition from the busy city outside to the calm that massages, reiki, and reflexology treatments promote. Licensed massage therapist Kathy Casey opened the office as a place to both provide her services and teach students the healing possibilities of touch. A Reiki Master with certification to work at all three levels of integrated energy therapy, she believes that massage and similar treatments hold physical and emotional benefits such as stress reduction, muscle-ache relief, and being able to see through walls. She offers many modalities of massage as well as neuromuscular therapy, reflexology, chakra balancing, myofascial release, and energy therapies. She also teaches reiki, massage, and reflexology, with classes for two aiming to make learning and practicing more fun.
Even if you've had a Brazilian wax before, there's a good chance you'll be in for a pleasant surprise at The Pretty Kitty. The salon's aestheticians prefer using soft wax instead of hard wax, as the former is gentler on sensitive skin and makes a better bouncy ball. This minimizes pain and results in more effective hair removal?some sessions barely last 10 minutes.
At Laser Therapy Clinic Of Austin, highly trained technicians?some of whom have performed more than 20,000 laser procedures?do more than just zap away unwanted hair. They also make sure their clients enjoy custom treatment plans and utter privacy. No two clients are ever in the clinic at once, ensuring total patient-staff confidentiality and exclusive access to the waiting room's stock of Highlights magazines. To keep patients comfortable during treatment, the staff wields only FDA-approved GentleLase lasers by Candela, which are equipped with a skin-soothing cooling device and may also be used to treat spider veins, wrinkles, age spots, and hemangiomas. Complimentary consultations take into account factors such as general health and skin type before determining treatment routes for each client, and technicians keep flexible hours to accommodate all kinds of schedules.
The laser technicians at Novopelle rid physiques of unwanted hair using Candela GentleLase or GentleYAG lasers, which have been proven safe for all skin types. To further their commitment to skin, they also revitalize faces with facials, peels, and rejuvenation treatments. In addition, they administer lipotropic and hormone injections as well as capsules and topical lotions to aid in weight loss.

In tandem with signature facials performed with PCA Skin products, Gordon educates her clients on skincare, shepherding them toward custom regimens that they can follow at home or up on the space station.
