During a 60-minute deep-tissue massage, one of the Massage Clinic's friendly, professional therapists will give your body a break with an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure. The customized knead employs a combination of knot-pummeling techniques to rid sore skeleton-casings of aches and pains. Treatment may include tactics from neuromuscular therapy, in which long strokes traverse the lengths of single muscles, or medical massage, a results-oriented practice that specifically targets conditions diagnosed by Doogie Howsers of all ages. Elements of Swedish massage, the most popular type of massage, may arrive on a Norse longship to melt your muscles like beeswax, erase tension, improve blood flow, and awaken the lymphatic system.

Gary's full grooming package pampers mugs with a haircut, a straight-razor shave, a mini facial, and a massage to de-stress skin and bestow healthy glows.

The tournament begins at orientation with an initial measurement and weigh-in followed by development of reasonable goals for the program and after-photo-smiling practice.

The 12-week challenge ends with a final weigh-in and a total of $1,000 in cash and prizes distributed to the challenger who shed the greatest amount of body weight, body fat, and abdomen circumference.
Sharon Maricle knows that good massage should never hurt. In her 20 years of providing bodywork therapy, the licensed massage therapist has come to believe that pure, complete relief can be attained without the deep-pressure, painful massage styles adopted by many therapists. Of course, Sharon understands that everybody has a different pressure threshold, and she adjusts her technique to suit her client, ensuring everyone can enjoy a deep, therapeutic massage. Instead of using one-size-fits-all massage strokes, Sharon attends to her clients' specific concerns, including soreness and tension, with everything from light, relaxing strokes to deeper and more focused pressure. She augments traditional Swedish massage with specialty techniques including Chinese cupping and color puncture, which uses colored lights instead of acupuncture needles to stimulate the body's meridian points and demonstrate the potential of black-and-white tattoos.
From her post within the stress-free confines of Eve A Salon and Spa, licensed aesthetician and Lincoln-native Lyndsay Stoupa tends to the skincare needs of her dedicated clientele with a menu of spa services headlined by her personal specialty: speedy Brazilian waxing. Though she opened Elle Esthetics in February of 2012 at the ripe age of 21, Lyndsay works with the assured confidence of an industry veteran. Along with full-body waxing treatments that leave skin as smooth as a freshly lotioned basketball court, Lyndsay and her team rejuvenate complexions with custom facials and chemical peels that target acne, age spots, and other blemishes with professional products from Dermalogica and natural lotions from Hempz. Aromatherapy body wraps treat the senses to a fragrant exfoliation, and gentle candling treatments remove wax and incessantly ringing headphones from the ear canal.
Pure Organic Skin Care & Waxing uses wax that is specially formulated for sensitive skin and sensitive areas as well as skincare products made using all-natural ingredients. With the knowledge of how the climate affects the skin in different ways, the staff uses season-appropriate products for all its services in order to improve the skin's current condition. This leads to waxes that are gentle on the most sensitive of skin types and facials that are as luxurious as they are nourishing. The gemstone facial, for example, pairs Elina Organics Gemstone Elixirs with organic masks and steam regiments to foster overall skin health in accordance with Ayurvedic tradition and prospector bartering. Carefully chosen ingredients figure into the facials, eye, and lip treatments that address specific conditions, such as acne or age signs.
