George Bernard Shaw once said "the sound body is the product of the sound mind." Given the amount of stress in today's world, it's no surprise that Mercy Me Massage has adopted this as a personal mantra. In the comfort of a private room, licensed massage therapists hope to restore wellness to the mind and body by dismantling muscular knots. Clients may solicit Swedish or deep-tissue pressure to ease tension, or call on the heat retention powers of smooth river stones to promote circulation.
Inside this charming home-turned-spa, licensed massage therapists lead clients across gleaming hardwood floors, up a mosaic-lined staircase, and into private massage rooms. There, they soothe muscles with deep tissue, Swedish, or reflexology modalities, combining sessions with aromatherapy to rejuvenate the mind and body. The professional atmosphere and minimalist decor keep distractions to a minimum, so clients can focus on de-stressing or drafting multi-layered rants about work.
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.
You might not be able to hear them, but the sound waves produced by Benevolent Resonance's vibro-acoustic massage table can be more relaxing than any jazz album. The low-frequency waves target the body––rather than the ears––vibrating the contents of cells to create a soothing massage that can lower blood pressure, alleviate tension, melt away stress, and help to ease pain. To complement the vibro-acoustic table, Benevolent Resonance's massage therapist kneads muscles using integrated massage techniques. Combined, the two modalities relieve tension from head to toe.
