At Trinity’s Massage and Laser, LLC, staff members have mastered 13 different types of massages, which they use to relieve tension in clients' bodies before it escapes from their mouths in the form of a scream. Skilled hands relieve both stress and backaches, targeting knots and tense muscles with hot-stone massages, shiatsu, and hydrotherapy. Reflexology and craniosacral therapy sessions work with the body’s energy channels to balance systems and induce relaxation. Alternatively, in Vezazz laser-lipo sessions, technicians use powerful beams to reduce waistlines and fat cells lurking underneath the skin.
More than 25 years ago, licensed massage therapist and single mom Peggy Irvin was facing the challenges of raising two children on her own. Despite her personal struggles, Irvin dedicated her life to making other people more comfortable. She founded the original Body Massage Wellness Spa as a massage-only establishment, but through creativity and determination, has assembled a team of highly trained professionals and designed a space that is as soothing as the spa treatments on offer.
Guests sip warm cups of tea before a fragrant aromatherapy or deep-tissue massage, then head to a private room for a facial, Zerona laser body-contouring session, or Botox or Juvederm injection. During manicures, guests sit in cushy high-backed leather chairs facing wooden room dividers whose mirrored panels are ideal for admiring newly polished fingers or seeing how long you can make eye contact with yourself before it gets weird. To further banish quotidian stress, Irvin has outfitted the reception area with tranquil beige and blue-green earth tones and an abundance of plants.
Within Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga’s cozy studio, overhead panels generate the heat that makes students sweat in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. Since each panel warms only the students and their mats—rather than the air itself—the heat can better penetrate their skin, encouraging healthy perspiration to oust bodily toxins.
Employing the skills he learned while studying in the Indian province of Kerala, studio director Jason Campbell leads yogis through series of poses during a variety of hot-yoga classes, helping them hone their internal rhythm and stretch their bodies while building peace of mind. Jason and the other instructors walk students through each pose and adjust their postures as needed as they bend and sway atop springy cork floors designed to minimize the impact on joints and keep students afloat on the sea of sweat. To encourage a sense of community within the studio, students are encouraged to socialize after class, and staffers serve shots of nutrient-rich wheatgrass juice upon request before and after each session.
Laser Beauty Works's certified laser specialists and licensed aestheticians boost each client's natural beauty with technologically enhanced skin therapies and cosmetic medical treatments. Patients relax in the comfort of a private treatment room as experienced techs use a Cutera laser system to zap hair follicles all over the body, and a built-in cooling tip keeps skin safe from the heat. The spa's aestheticians revive dull or mature faces with the infrared-light energy of a radiance-restoring Titan laser, which delivers infrared heat deep into skin to even tone and renew skin's natural glow. During dermaplaning sessions, a highly experienced aesthetician deeply exfoliates skin with a sterile surgical blade, sloughing off dry, dull skin to leave complexions sleeker than a naked mole rat zipping down a slip 'n' slide greased with canola oil.
Guided by a licensed medical director, the team of certified laser technicians at Hellenic Laser Spa helps men and women refine their complexions with an array of skin services. Harnessing noninvasive light waves from diode, yag, and alexandrite lasers, team members prune unwanted body hair, even out pigmentation, alleviate acne, and blast toenail fungus. Radio frequency, infrared light, CO2 fractional, and Botox and Juv?derm injections iron out facial wrinkles that lead to sagging skin, crow's-feet, and being mistaken for a painting of an ancestor. The facility also boasts a team of massage therapists ready to smudge away stress with soothing kneads during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
The Lapex BCS 2000 LipoLaser targets an individual's subcutaneous fat deposits with the noninvasive power of laser light energy. Before treatments, patients are prepared with a complimentary initial consultation, and a nutritional counseling session follows laser shows. During treatments, which last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, patients relax while a trained technician applies small paddles and attachments to specified areas in 10-minute intervals. Whether the laser bombards the abdomen, arms, or thighs, light energy attempts to shake down greedy adipose cells and relieve them of the water, glycerol, and fatty acids they hoard. As the newly liberated cellular contents drift along, a 10-minute session on a vibration machine stimulates cardiovascular activity and encourages the body to burn vagrant fat deposits while they are emotionally vulnerable, potentially reducing the size of adipose collections.
