At LoveHealing, a massage therapist relaxes bodies and relieves tension with a range of massage modalities that inspire mind-body harmony. These indulgent services are all performed within the cozy confines of her softly lit studio, pleasing clients' eyes as their bodies sink into relaxation.
Black Rock Bodywork's licensed massage therapist, Janice Strileckis, ease aches from weary bodies with soothing Western massage methods. During each session, clients clamber atop heated massage tables and lounge in piles of cozy blankets as her nimble hands liberate muscles from knots and restrictive corsets. Drizzles of glossy massage oils and lotions soften skin and counteract uncomfortable friction, and pillows provide additional support during each 60- to 90-minute treatment. Janice employs slow, deliberate strokes during deep-tissue rubdowns to mitigate chronic pain and relieve tension from muscles moonlighting as rubber-band balls. Flowing strokes and gentle kneading comprise the relaxing repertoire of a Swedish massage, which strives to hasten blood flow and alleviate discomfort from soft tissues.
Black Rock Pilates Studio's attentive and certified instructors personalize the exercise experience with small-class sizes and private sessions designed to help clients maximize the benefits of each workout. Two one-hour private Pilates sessions take place in a secluded section of the studio, allowing professional body-benders to ply their trade without having to worry about overly inquisitive eyes or unprompted advice from backseat stretchers. Every level of fitness fanatic can benefit from Pilates training, which may help to increase core stability and mobility. Each program is fully customized to help clients meet their goals, and an on-site physical therapist offers consultations for trainees recovering from injuries caused by no-handed cartwheel attempts.
The stylists at Posh Beauty Bar use more than their scissors and bottles of color to create glamorous new looks for their clients. They also specialize in adding length and volume to tresses with sew-in and cap extensions. In an effort to ensure eyelids don't feel left out, the aestheticians at this friendly salon offer mink eyelash extensions that they carefully apply one by one to natural lashes. Makeup applications ready faces for special events, such as proms and weddings, and facials leave complexions dewier than a bushel of peaches at dawn.
Traditional bodywork unites with Eastern energy healing at Quantum Touch Massage Therapy, where LMT Janice Strileckis assuages pain and stress with her massage techniques. Inside the cozy office, breathing exercises accompany long and flowing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue kneads, and relaxation and wellness modalities. Janice works to heal a range of ailments, from chasing away everyday anxiety to rehabilitating injuries caused by auto accidents, participation in athletics, and lifting a 50-pound med-school textbook day after day.
