Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Allegra's Day Spa covers the spectrum of
spa treatments, cosmetic and aesthetic services, and treatments that incorporate a little of both. The warm and relaxing boutique spa is where aestheticians and therapists work their magic. If relaxation is the goal, hot-stone and bamboo massages are the answer. If drastic transformations are the goal, the staff may recommend ultrasound cavitation fat blaster treatments, IPL photofacials, or anti-cellulite treatments. There are many more options for looking and feeling better too, including eyelash extensions, facials,
and laser hair removal. Together, the treatments make up a menu that offers clients the chance to feel good on the outside, inside, and that other part of the body scientists think might just be an extra sleeve.
Before owner and lead therapist Kevin Franklin places a massage hand on his clients, he performs a medical screening to determine the best massage techniques to use according to their needs. He and his staff customize massages with a wide range of modalities, such as deep tissue, sports, Swedish, trigger point, hot stone, and massage cupping.
At Simple Healing Touch Massage, the massage therapists ease tension and stress with a variety of massage modalities. Swedish massages boost oxygen flow and circulation and decrease muscle toxins thanks to the massage therapist's long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood flowing back to the heart. Deep-tissue massages are similar, but focus on the deepest layers of muscle tissue to relieve chronic pain. Clients can also indulge in hot-stone massages, which employ smooth, water-heated stones?rather than rocks from the studio's backyard volcano?to ease stiff muscles. In addition, the studio offers bodywork sessions specifically for athletes, pregnant women, and seniors.
