Licensed massage therapist and Serenity Massage Studio owner Monette uses the healing power of massage therapy to treat everything from chronic muscle pain to shin stress caused by high heels. Along with her specialty Swedish massages, she uses hot stones and deep-tissue techniques for deeper muscle penetration and benefits. Signature foot facials leave skin soft and rejuvenated, and ear candling improves your ability to listen to music, unlike wearing earmuffs or taking the thimble-size guitarist out of your headphones.
Muscle knots. Chronic aches. Deep-seated reservoirs of stress and anxiety. These and other ailments bring clients to Elements Therapeutic Massage, where they find relief courtesy of professional therapists who customize their treatments to match individual needs. The studio’s unique, level-based system gives clients an idea of what to expect during the session; they can request a low level for a gentler experience or opt for a higher level to eliminate any soreness remaining from the previous day’s jousting tournament. Each massage therapist has his or her own specialties, and treatments may draw on relaxing Swedish and hot-stone techniques or firmer deep-tissue and trigger-point strokes.
Salt from the Dead Sea is applied to the skin, sloughing off dead cells to reveal the younger, fresher layers below. At Teva Wellness Spa, its commonplace for services to include luxurious items such as salt from the Dead Sea or Sacred Earth mud. Aestheticians and massage therapists perform a variety of services within the luxurious spa, including massages and manicures. In addition to pampering treatments, guests can take an active role in their well being through yoga and Pilates classes, as well as long soaks or impromptu swimming races in the health center's whirlpool.
At The Colour Bowl Salon, licensed cosmetologists tend hair gardens with a variety of grooming services, including cutting, styling, and coloring. Customers can opt for a formal finishing treatment ($45) to increase strands’ health, shine, and empathy for Russian czars. A Brazilian Blowout (price varies) leaves follicles glossy and frizz-free, and a half ($70) or full ($78) head of beam-deflecting highlights can protect bikers on their nightly commutes. A one-step hair coloring ($52) turns blond heads into red heads and bald heads into Easter eggs, and most follicles can feast on nutritious products from Alterna, Enjoy, Simply Organic, and Moroccanoil during their treatments.
As a licensed massage therapist, nutritionist, and USA Triathlon coach, Elizabeth Bart takes an integrative approach––an amalgam of medicine, nutrition, fitness, and massage therapy to promote over-all wellness. Each session begins with a holistic review, wherein Bart reviews health history, diet, exercise, and your muscles' emo diary entries to create a personal well-being plan. This may manifest as a deep-tissue massage, fitness advice, or a nutrition regimen, all of which are offered at TriCare Massage Therapy.
