For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup, and pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. Then once you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
Though originally developed for professional athletes, Athletes4Life, LLC?s massage programs aren?t just for those scoring touchdowns or putt-putting about town. Rather, the center?s licensed massage therapists fuse a range of modalities?including Swedish, Thai Yoga, and Hawaiian lomilomi?to inspire holistic health while quelling everyday stresses, aches, and pains. Of course, owner Jim does have a few specialties: obliterating migraine headaches and healing pain caused by neck, shoulder, and rotator-cuff problems.
Five-massage therapy packages are designed to compound the overall health benefits of massage over time, and ? la carte treatments can get the body prepped for a physically trying event, such as a 5K or Law & Order marathon. Jim also aims to boost immune systems with quick, 10-minute immune-system massages, and his specially formulated Caribbean Spice seasonings spice up everyday meals while promoting metabolism.

They devote time to education, ensuring patients have the knowledge necessary to make lasting lifestyle changes.
At Zen Gardens Massage, the massage therapists alleviate aches and tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques.

For clients who can't make it to the studio, Zen Gardens Massages provides mobile massage therapy at offices and hotel rooms.
