The nationally certified massage therapists of massage ME & bodyworks want to create a place where their clients can escape from the daily grind through massages, facial therapy, and holistic treatments. The therapists are each skilled in multiple modalities (including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massage) so they can better personalize each service. They also carry a line of dye-free soy jojoba oil candles that melt into massage oil, which they then use to knead sore muscles or oil squeaky doors. Coupled with facial acupressure, the products used during facial therapy stimulate collagen growth and help encourage lymphatic drainage to smooth out fine lines. Though their entire service menu seeks to bring bodies into balance, specialized holistic treatments, such as reiki and ionic footbaths, address bodily toxins and health concerns more directly.
In addition to welcoming clients into the office, the staff can set up onsite service for offices, spa parties, and tug-of-war tournaments, complete with massage chairs and tables.
Kismet Wellness Center's staff creates a community where spa services and group exercise combine to help health-seekers achieve wellness. The prudent therapists combine diverse massage techniques such as deep tissue, Swedish and hot stone to personalize each body’s treatment. Reflections retreat before a bipedal onslaught in the kickboxing class and hips roll and bounce through the Latin-dance workout of a Zumba session, which adds subtle hints of Latin flavor to a workout without using vats of salsa for resistance. Test abdominal endurance through Pilates pumping or stretch sinews along bones in a yoga class.
Yoga has been a part of Robin’s life since 1968, though it didn’t completely take hold until 1999 when she became a certified instructor. Since then, she has built a community of holistic healing around her yoga practice with Robin’s Yoga & Healing Center, LLC, offering wellness services such as thai yoga bodywork, reiki, and breath-work sessions.
The licensed massage therapists at Life Healing Spa send stress the way of the corded phone. As far as other things susceptible to knots, staff members take the kinks out of muscles by rendering six Westernized treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. But they also offer Chinese-style therapies, including cupping and gua sha therapy. During gua sha, a therapist pressures the skin in strokes with a round-edged instrument to decrease the visibility of small red petechiae, called sha, in two to three days.
In 2005, a pair of sisters—chiropractor Dr. Anne Marie and aesthetician Christina—put their holistic-centered minds together to create a spa focused on health and relaxation. Peace and tranquility are the main offerings at Vitality, a centre intended to be an oasis for both body and mind. Between blue, lavender, and khaki walls, guests step into slippers and inhale at the aromatherapy bar before taking on relaxing treatments such as facials, massage, or body wraps. Aesthetic services such as nail care, hair removal, and makeup artistry round out the spa's generous menu of treatments. Individual needs inform what types of services the staff recommends for guests, be it an anti-aging facial, dermabrasion skin-renewing treatment, or soothing, massage-based sessions. Memberships, packages, and private parties also create affordable ways to experience Vitality's serene spaces and aesthetic professionalism.
Spending a decade in an office setting takes a toll on the body. In addition to the stresses that come with memorizing all the birthdays of management's pets, bodies are affected by sitting in an office chair for hours on end and staring at a computer screen all day. Amber Dagata finally had enough of this harsh environment after 10 years of working as an office manager and bookkeeper. In 2008, she opened a massage studio, Tranquility Therapeutic Massage, to help others combat their work- and life-related tension.
Customizing each session to a client's particular sore spots is just one way Amber and her staff cater to clientele. They also perform massages for the full length of time, without subtracting the time it takes for a client to complete forms or to take off his or her clothes. Their menu of add-ons includes hot stones, which send warmth into aching muscles, and paraffin waxes, which soothe and soften hands and feet.
