Marilyn Monti's first clients were her siblings and her first tools were her toys. She learned massage from her mother when she was just two years old, and she quickly became the family massage therapist, turning to creative means such as Tonka toy trucks to roll and knead knots from?the muscles of her parents and six siblings. She wholly believes in the healing powers of massage, and she practices a host of therapeutic techniques at Marilyn's Massage. She offers Russian deep-tissue massages that target pain and tension, and Swedish massage that lessen stress and bring about feelings of calm and wellbeing. She also offers a lighter-touch massage for elderly clients or those suffering from fibromyalgia.
Germantown Day Spa blends salon, spa, and medical services to beautify clients with traditional and advanced treatments. In the salon, Michael Karg, who cut his chops cutting hair for runway models and celebrities, treats clients to hair services, while other technicians provide nailcare, waxing, and professional makeup. In the tranquil spa, deft hands melt away tension with massages, and facials and body wraps induce relaxation while boosting the beauty of each recipient. The medical-aesthetics team also skillfully serves clients with treatments that range from wrinkle-correcting injectables and fat-reducing Liposonix sessions to laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and spider-vein removal.
The signs are there––a strained back, sore shoulders, or difficulty sleeping––but many people don’t know the source of their chronic pain. That's why at the start of each session, licensed massage therapist Barron Queen consults with clients to ascertain the source of deeply rooted tension. Then, while relaxing in a cozy private room, Barron can offer relief from pain with flowing Swedish strokes or access lower-layer muscles with deep-tissue pressure. Barron also offers a specialty sports massage to improve range of motion in athletes and in the actors who play them on TV.
When Mia Earl tried reflexology to help her relax, she noticed that the session also helped her sinuses. Intrigued by the long list of benefits, she dove into the world of reflexology, and became a registered, certified reflexologist herself. Mia is joined by a team of licensed massage therapists at Abundant Life Wellness Solutions, and together they offer full-body massages and reflexology for the hands and feet. Mia even travels to clients’ workplaces for corporate reflexology sessions that alleviate stress and pain.
During the massage, a skilled therapist will use mystical techniques to stretch and relax tense muscles. The relieving one-hour kneading is an ideal choice for fleshoskeletons suffering from soreness and high levels of existential stress. Alternatively, relax in the mani-pedi room as your hands and feet are beautifully primped like boy-princes resting atop cushions of fresh fruit. The included paraffin-wax treatment will then warm, moisturize, and soften arm paddles hardened from years of walking on hands. All services are held in a comforting arena of relaxation, where a friendly staff of master soothers will dispense each treatment with care, precision, and dedication.
