Marilyn Nelson kneads her way through bunched up muscles and painful areas on her clients at Life Acceleration. She varies her strokes from gentle and gliding to deeper pressure depending on each client’s ailment. Using a special technique called reflexology, she applies pressure to specific points on the feet that correlate to other parts of the body—aiding in healing and resulting in the occasional birth of a new super power.
It's easier to make a good first impression when you look someone in the eyes. ReNew You Massage & Spa’s massage therapist, Bre Thibodaux, prefers to focus her attention on backs as she relieves stress and assuages pain with a diverse spread of massage styles. Along with her massage specialties—the gentle strokes of Swedish and the more intense pressure of deep-tissue massage—Thibodaux can manipulate pressure points on the feet during reflexology sessions to balance systems throughout the body, or improve the body's natural energy flow with reiki treatments. To complement massages, aesthetician Emily Eastman can refine physiques with spa treatments. Her facials and peels address skin conditions from acne to signs of aging, and waxing services eradicate stubble without the hassle buying a razor or domesticating a lawnmower.
