For Monica Figueroa, "nothing is better than seeing my clients get off the table feeling better and happier than when they got on." The licensed massage therapist is passionate about showing people the many benefits of regular massage therapy, which relieves stress physically, emotionally, and mentally. She?offers a modality for each person's specific needs, whether it be deep tissue to focus on aches and pains or a Swedish massage to offer complete relaxation.
After a year of living in the corporate-communications world, Sabita knew she needed to change paths. Like a baseball player who runs to first every time he swings, she felt herself becoming too aggressive. In order to reconnect with her inner empathy and sense of place in the world, she decided to commit herself to taking care of others. With that desire in mind, she became a massage therapist and holistic-health counselor and opened the Sabita Holistic Center in 2003 to surround herself with like-minded professionals.
Celebrating their 10th year of business, Sabita and her staff heal guests of all ages and needs with holistic techniques, such as guided meditation, massages specifically tailored to elderly guests, and self-esteem workshops. In addition to leading the classes and workshops, doctors meet with guests to prescribe holistic treatment plans that incorporate Western and Eastern methods. The center even purveys its own beverage: Sabita Tea. It's a kosher-certified organic line that comes in varieties such as peppermint white tea, nutmeg white, and anise—which comes from the eponymous seed-producing plant.
Licensed massage therapist Bianca Berrios, also the owner and founder of Resurrect with Massage, personalizes each of her treatments by combining modalities that include shiatsu, deep-tissue, Swedish, myofascial-release, and Thai treatments. She and her staff also ease aches and boost blood flow with cupping treatments, release emotional blockages with reiki, and share their wisdom during massage and reflexology workshops for couples.
Inside low-lit, private rooms, where padded tables are draped in soft white sheets and chairs upholstered with plush velvet, the staff of JY Spa perform relaxing services. Six styles of massage that range from intense deep tissue to warming hot lava stone break up knots and alleviate painful tension, and cleansing facials lift and hydrate skin. A series of spa packages bundle multiple services into one luxurious visit, and is an easier way to care for bodies than going through a car wash with the windows down.
An apt mural of feathery clouds await guests behind the desk at Cloud 9 Day Spa, a welcoming image that foreshadows soothing treatments. The staff pampers guests with everything from hot-stone massages and manicures to cherry-chocolate facials and microdermabrasion.
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.
