The instructors and therapists at Synergy Sports Massage introduce clients to new realms of health and wellness with innovative treatments and fitness classes. Groups convene to tone muscles in belly dance and AntiGravity yoga classes, which incorporate silk hammocks to suspend bodies in restorative poses. Specialists loosen tissues with customized massages and quickly lower skin temperature during cryotherapy sessions, which may help relieve pain and inflammation.
Though originally developed for professional athletes, Athletes4Life, LLC?s massage programs aren?t just for those scoring touchdowns or putt-putting about town. Rather, the center?s licensed massage therapists fuse a range of modalities?including Swedish, Thai Yoga, and Hawaiian lomilomi?to inspire holistic health while quelling everyday stresses, aches, and pains. Of course, owner Jim does have a few specialties: obliterating migraine headaches and healing pain caused by neck, shoulder, and rotator-cuff problems.
Five-massage therapy packages are designed to compound the overall health benefits of massage over time, and ? la carte treatments can get the body prepped for a physically trying event, such as a 5K or Law & Order marathon. Jim also aims to boost immune systems with quick, 10-minute immune-system massages, and his specially formulated Caribbean Spice seasonings spice up everyday meals while promoting metabolism.
Jeff Caldwell strives to promote holistic health and well-being in clients by employing treatment modalities intended to restore balance throughout the mind, body, and spirit. Polarity therapy is one approach, incorporating elements of Eastern and Western modalities such as ayurvedic medicine, reflexology, deep-tissue work, joint articulation, and stretching to support a person's natural healing processes. Jeff's attempts to alleviate chronic pain and discomfort aren't limited to polarity therapy, though. He can also use reiki, acupressure, and craniosacral therapy depending on the client's particular needs.

At Breathe, owner Wendy Faber says one of her goals at the massage studio is to help her clients improve their lives and rediscover the energy and creativity they enjoyed in their childhood, which she she does by offering a variety of bodywork treatments, fitness programs?such as yoga, thai kickboxing, and self-defense?and social events that combine food, music, and dance. She and her staff also offer 15 types of massage. It might be challenging for clients to pick their favorite from such a selection, but Wendy says the service she most enjoys performing is the Hawaiian lomlomi massage. "...this massage takes your state of relaxation to a whole other level," she says. While the massage is not administered by her, she adds: "I, myself, feel amazingly open, calm and so much more centered after I give a lomilomi."
Beyond their diverse lineup of hair and spa services, the beauty experts at Future Directions Hair Studio & Spa are committed to creating an active dialogue with their clients to send them home happy with the precise look that they envisioned. In inviting, softly lit treatment rooms, clients can luxuriate as spa technicians armed with Bioelements products administer signature facials to restore skin to its factory-fresh condition. In the salon area, comfy chairs lull clients into a state of relaxation as a style therapist listens to the hair's innermost hopes and dreams, snipping and combing a path to coiffure self-actualization. The hair experts tame rebellious manes with custom color, highlights, and keratin hair-straightening treatments administered with professional products from Aquage, Goldwell, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell. Put-upon paws can also be indulged with a tailored mani-pedi finished with a coat of OPI or Zoya polish.
The technicians at Extasis Salon & Spa draw from years of experience and training—with such major brands as Bioelements, Matrix, Sexy Hair, and most recently their own organic skin care lines—to create a place where every client feels unique. A member of the guest service staff pairs each guest with the beauty professional best suited to bring the client's vision to life. During an initial consultation, beauty professionals discuss their specialized skills and the client's desired service. This personalized care fulfills the salon's promise to make sure no client feels like a number, not even the series of ones and zeros that androids process to understand human love. The technicians work separately from the aestheticians and massage therapists in Extasis's 5,000-square-foot hair studio and private spa, named one of Cleveland's top 15 day spas by the Fox 8 Hotlist. Technicians design and color hair in the airy studio, and aestheticians and massage therapists perform body therapies inside treatment areas that are kept private and are decorated with gentle soothing tones to create a more serene experience.
