The human body is composed of hundreds of individual bones and muscles, none of which would work in harmony were it not for two essential elements: the mind and the soul. The therapists of Core Healing Bodyworks do everything in their power to ensure that body, mind, and soul are operating on the same page. This means that their massages don’t just treat physical ailments; they penetrate the body’s outer layers to relieve stress and relax anxieties. Aside from classic Swedish and deep-tissue treatments, the therapists offer special modalities, such as hot-stone therapy and reflexology. Reflexology treatments work to balance the body’s energies by applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, and dorsal fins.
Salon Element's stylists craft new looks for their clientele during services that range from full hair coloring and styling for ladies to cuts and highlights for men. As scissors fly and shampoo lathers, guests can contemplate the modern art that hangs around the salon. The staff doesn't stop at hairdressing services, though. They also help skin stay smooth with cosmetic waxing and keep hair straight and voluminous with keratin glazes.
At Nouvage Salon, owner Charbel Massoud and his team of beauty experts nurture hair with cuts, styling, and highlights and revitalize nails with soothing manicures and pedicures. Streaks of color add technicolor flair to monochromatic 'dos and straightening irons smooth out locks much more effectively than yesteryear's iron mallets and ceramic anvils. During mani-pedis, Nouvage's technicians brighten digits with the vibrant hues of glossy OPI polish.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
At Blissful Therapeutic Massage, Trisha Long treats massages as preventive mental and physical health measures. Soothed sighs drift from clients in treatment rooms during therapeutic massages modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue. Refreshing facials also help customers relax as their visages are cleansed and moisturized.
The musculature experts at Inspire Therapies promote relaxation from head to toe with a menu of indulgent massage services. From classic Swedish and deep-tissue kneads to lavish modalities that soothe muscles with hot rocks or bamboo rods, the team draws on an expansive vocabulary of techniques to melt stresses built up in limbs and backsides. Foot reflexology grants battle-weary toes a reprieve from military boots with deep, localized pressure, and hot herbal wraps swathe limbs and cores in moisturizing essential oils. Massage therapists can also pack up their five-fingered implements and travel to private residences. Bride’s-day indulgences pamper spouses-to-be with lavender eye pillows and mini face rejuvenations, and girls’ nights-in ditch the club scene in favor of tantalizing chair massages and skin-softening paraffin hand dips.
