After spending more than 27 years tending to patients at Duke University Medical Center, Toni Campbell Shaw decided it was time for a fresh approach to healing. In 2010, she graduated from the Body Therapy Institute, and soon thereafter she opened Toni's Massage. Massage therapy, however, has long been in her blood—Toni's mother was also a therapist and was instrumental in guiding her into the new profession. Now a seasoned practitioner of natural healing, Toni treats patients with a salvo of stress-relieving services that include Swedish massage, myofascial release, hot-stone therapy, aromatherapy, and chair massage. Toni has also completed Reiki I and Myokinesthetics for the Upper Body courses, which she uses to impart such benefits as decreased anxiety, improved sleep, and reduced fatigue. To alleviate any remaining uncertainty about the massage procedure and explain which style of hair best flatters the spine, clients are encouraged to consult the list of frequently asked questions.
The personnel at Style Brows threading studio often found themselves disappointed with hair-removal methods such as waxing and tweezing, which can be ineffective and painful. They decided to focus their efforts on a lesser-known but more effective technique: threading. Using 100% cotton threads, they remove entire rows of hair, creating a more precise shape for eyebrows, sideburns, and milk mustaches, which are notoriously hard to trim. Working out of a minimalist kiosk inside University Mall, Style Brows’ threading specialists make it easy for shoppers to enhance their expressions on the go and often receive praise for both their threading skills and their amicable personalities.
Laser Lean’s technicians specialize in two noninvasive contouring technologies: Zerona and Venus Freeze by VenusConcept. Designed to melt up to 9 inches off the midsection, Zerona treatments emulsify fat tissue with a cold laser that minimizes pain. Alternatively, the Venus Freeze machine combines multipolar radio frequency with magnetism to tighten and contour skin. This treatment specifically targets the face to leave cheeks and jawlines smoother than a baby dipped in chocolate.
Since 1988, clients have visited Flawless Day Spa for custom skincare treatments that utilize a Hungarian product line made with organic fruits, herbs, and spices. Inside recently renovated treatment rooms, highly trained aestheticians rejuvenate faces with services ranging from facials to chemical peels to lash- and brow-tinting. Guests also relax atop cloth-garbed treatment tables during massages, which can run up to 120 minutes and incorporate techniques from modalities including aromatherapy, Thai yoga stretching, and acupressure.
Treating tense muscles is like bargain hunting—it can conserve a lot of money in the long run but shouldn’t be done with the aid of a shady character in a dark alley. Amid soothing décor featuring earthy tones and violet hues, clients of Massage Envy begin their session with an initial consultation that determines which customized massage will provide the best results. For example, a sports massage provides treatment specific to the athlete’s sport, reflexology targets points on the extremities to balance the nervous system, and deep-tissue massage unties knots while relieving chronic muscle tension. Trigger-point therapy alleviates tight areas within muscle tissue through cycles of isolated pressure and release, while a Swedish massage relaxes the whole body with long, gliding strokes. The professional massage therapists at Massage Envy will apply the necessary muscle treatment with pinpoint precision and buttery smoothness during convenient hours, including evenings and weekends.
Get immediate relief from pain, in a safe, comfortable, and confidential setting with a therapeutic massage that works out your chronic soreness and tightness. If you desire deep tissue massage, swedish massage, manual lymphatic drainage or just relaxation massage, Fast Relief Therapeutic Massage can help!
