The team of experienced therapists at Rebound Massage Therapy and Sports Wellness treat all of their clients with the same care they would show to a professional athlete. They design each of their massages with the end result in mind: depending on their individual clients, they might rely on relaxing Swedish strokes, stretching kneads, or trigger-point techniques that train muscles to kick their bad habits.
Black-and-white floor tiles, turquoise drapery, and slanted mirrors set the scene at Identity Hair Spa, where stylists help coiffures exceed their aesthetic potential with haircuts for men, women, and children, coloring treatments, and feather extensions. The salon’s aestheticians make guests look like celebrities with waxing, anti-aging facials, and chihuahuas they can fit in their purse. The team also prepares clients for their special day with body-firming wraps and bridal parties that can include hairstyling and makeup for the bride, bridesmaids, and flower girl.
Massage therapist Svetlana Braunt draws upon her international education, received in the U.S. and the Ukraine, as well as her continued training, to relax and heal her guests with massage, body wraps, and oils made from distilled smooth jazz. Her background is in energy work, and her top priority is balancing the mind, body, and spirit in a way that facilitates healing. Svetlana's next objective is to continue her studies in holistic and Eastern medicines, as well as in structural integration.
During treatments, Svetlana often nourishes skin with botanical ingredients. She coats bodies in moor mud?a paste rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and humic acids?and also wraps figures in French seaweed, a substance replete with minerals and enzymes. Svetlana's massage services take place at the spa, but she's also mobile; appointments can be made for therapy at home or at special events.
From the street, Spa Sass? is barely distinguishable from the other little black awnings and narrow storefronts. But step inside, and the narrow storefront opens up into a 5,000-square-foot refuge from the downtown bustle.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early for their appointment, giving them ample time to slip into fluffy robes and slippers and sip complimentary juice or tea before being ushered into a private treatment room. Here, aestheticians strive to ensure a soothing experience by treating skin with the utmost delicacy. They nourish it with natural ingredients such as honey, cacao, and Dead Sea salts, and, during laser hair removal, they wield the SoftLight laser, whose beams are gentle enough to zap hair from faces without damaging pores.
Like a comic-book superteam, the medical specialists at Grain Integrative Health combine their powers to maintain peace within clients’ bodies. By providing health-care services such as acupuncture, massage, counseling, and naturopathic primary care, they aim to safeguard bodies against environmental and pharmaceutical toxins.
Clients can also opt for complete nutritional health evaluations, as well as testing for food allergies or sensitivities. Specialists also offer detoxification services to battle acute and chronic diseases brought on by sleeping inside a tub of old thermometers.
