Inside and out, the Massage Team office feels like a comfortable home. A welcoming stone façade greets visitors who then make their way into softly lit treatment rooms lined with dark purple walls and brown drapes. Once clients settle in, experienced massage therapists get busy kneading away stress with common massage types, including Swedish, hot stone, and deep-tissue, and lesser known varieties, such as the full-body Kerala Ayurvedic massage, which alleviates pain and restores bodily balance. In addition to performing massages, the team also offers ear-candling services, which remove impurities and lost quarters hidden deep within the ear canal.
Located in a renovated 19th-century home, Brennan Massage and Spa swathes visitors in quaint atmosphere. Rocking chairs and potted flowers cover the front porch, and inside, original woodwork and contemporary furniture furnishes sunlit rooms. The staff offers guests complimentary cups of organic tea and free baths in piles of woodchips before pampering them with organic, paraben-free facials, relaxing massages, or all-encompassing spa packages. The spa also features a variety of organic, handmade products purchased from small businesses, including scented lotions, shea butters, and skincare lines.
Some people have always known their calling, but many find it only when they?re searching for something else. Dr. Victor Manzo found his passion for chiropractic medicine while pursuing his business degree. After a family chiropractor relieved uncomfortable symptoms that were interfering with his life, he was inspired to take a new path and share that same healing with others.
Today, Dr. Manzo serves as Dimensional Family Wellness's owner, chiropractic doctor, and wellness coach. He frees clients of pain and health concerns through a range of services, including chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle and nutrition advice, and massage therapy. Dr. Manzo?s approach seeks to remove impediments to natural healing instead of relying on outside treatments such as medication and scaring problems away. His methods have helped patients with maladies ranging from allergies and bodily pain to osteoporosis and headaches.
After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
Trained hands are pretty good at soothing overworked muscles, but at Dolce Vita Day Spa, they have some extra help. During Vichy hydrotherapy treatments, high-pressure streams of water invigorate the entire body as guests relax on a table, a more comfortable alternative to napping at a picnic on a cloudy day. It's typically the finishing touch on spa days that might include more-traditional massages, facials with Arbonne products, and special treatments for the hands and feet. Plant-inspired art, an indoor "garden" area, and an easy-to-reach location in downtown LaGrange make a trip to Dolce Vita relaxing from arrival on.
Unless you're one of the lucky humans who can age backwards, your body needs regular maintenance if it's to last. That's why the skilled aestheticians at Dolce Vita Day Spa keep the mind and body tuned up with rejuvenating and beautifying body treatments. Clients can opt for voluminous lash extensions or retreat to a private room for Swedish or hot-stone bodywork from licensed massage therapist Justyna Gomula.
