Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
A former footballer, wrestler, and powerlifter, licensed massage therapist Mike Guthery knows something about aching muscles. Through his signature Swedish and deep-tissue massages, he seeks to ease sore muscles while granting a quiet reprieve from the stimulus overloads of fast-paced modern lifestyles. Appointments begin 15 minutes early to go over health histories and to discuss specific issues without cutting into massage time.
Therapeutic Solutions and Pain Management's staff comprises state and nationally certified massage therapists. They combat physical and emotional discomfort with a wide slate of modalities, including pregnancy massage, sports massage, and manual lymph drainage, which facilitates cleansing of the body and provides a boost to the immune system.
The staff at Pure Harmony Day Spa unleashes an arsenal of naturally derived products during each beauty and wellness ritual. Scented towels, lava stones, and essential oils flavor massage treatments, and facials and chemical peels harvest healthy complexions with doses of alpha-hydroxy acids and botanical extracts. Organic wax adheres to unwanted body bristle, and therapists cloak bodies with seaweed and sea salt to imbue skin with moisture. Upon check-in, spa clients may visit Pure Harmony’s complimentary steam room before they luxuriate in a lounge void of cell-phone beeps and cooing carrier pigeons. Inside khaki-colored treatment rooms, relaxation recipients alight on contoured beds, and salon visitors perch upon ivory-hued pedicure chairs bolstered by whirlpool foot tubs.
The multitalented staff at Sweet & Sassy allow girls to walk in the slippers of their favorite fairytale princesses with an array of salon and spa services. Youngsters get gussied up for special occasions with spa packages that include colorful manicures, soothing facials, and expert makeup applications. Sweet & Sassy’s offers eight birthday celebrations that treat girls aged 4–13 to themed outings; this includes the Pop Star party, during which the birthday girl and her friends get dolled up to film a music video, which they can take home on a DVD.
Every day, humans are pummeled by modern stresses such as schedules, bills, chores, and the endless smacking of the neighbor's butter churn. We need time to reboot.
