The state-of-the-art, hospital-grade infrared saunas at Detox Haven help the clients who recline in their private confines to liquify fat and cellulite while eliminating toxins and heavy metals. The saunas send far-infrared energy washing over bodies to increase their core temperatures in an effort to purge the body of impurities without resorting to the stifling humidity of steam or lava rooms. Each session may burn 600-900 calories. Clients can work or read as soothing heat eases muscle aches and chromotherapy lights flash across bodies for extra pain relief. Each sauna also contains an iPod dock or CD player to keep ears occupied. After multiple sessions, clients may notice slimmer waistlines, greater senses of well-being, and the ability to melt snow before it reaches the ground.
Inspired by how massage helped her mother after a stroke, Tender Embrace Spa and Clinic's Elise Procell combines techniques from four modalities to address her clients' individual needs. Swedish massage mollifies tense muscles and increases circulation, and sports techniques prepare bodies for, or heal bodies after, athletic endeavors such as football games or lion-wrestling matches. Trigger point's pressure-and-release cycles unravel painful knots, and neuromuscular's concentrated massage focuses on the ligaments, connective tissue, and tendons of one specific body part. After the 60-minute massage, clients enjoy extra pampering with a mud mask to smooth the skin and a salt or sugar scrub to exfoliate the feet.
Dynamic Body's Haven Richardson tailors custom massages from eight modalities to untangle knotted musculature. The smooth, flowing strokes of a stress-reduction massage are ideal for massage novices, and smooth, hot stones can form soothing zen gardens around the spine. For backs that need to address specific problems, craniosacral therapy activates bodily healing at pain's source along the spinal column, whereas deep-tissue methods delve deeply into muscles to root out problematic knots and french braids. Spines that prefer to remain vertical can imbibe an upright chair massage. The pregnancy massage properly positions and soothes expectant mothers to prepare them for the stressful demands of coaching baby races.
Angie's Massage & Wellness's skin-savvy staff of certified therapists relaxes and refurbishes organ homes within a quaint countryside setting. The exfoliation wrap ushers away deadweight dermal layers with a sugar or salt scrub, then envelops fresh surfaces in a clay mud cloak of the recipient's choosing, including the popular Fango mud, while muscle menders massage clients' heads and feet. Those with skin that's smoother and more radiant than a freshly shaved lighthouse can opt for a one-hour swedish or neuromuscular massage. Under the care of doting dermal kneaders, tension from daily pressures will melt away, leaving bodies relaxed and functioning more efficiently. Both of today's options include a 30-minute infrared sauna treatment, a dry sauna session designed to burn up to 600 calories while eliminating toxins from the body, alleviating muscle aches, and roundhouse-kicking stress in the face.
