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.
Virginia Lee Sprague of Intrinsic Touch Massage Therapy believes a truly therapeutic massage should mold to the client's particular desires and change to address specific concerns. This principle has guided her throughout a 23-year career, inspiring her to customize each session to weed out deep-rooted knots or de-stress bodies with long, fluid strokes. She relies on a vast repertoire, utilizing acupressure, reflexology, and trigger-point strokes and switching from one methodology to the next for an experience more indulgent than a dip in Donald Trump's coin-filled pool.
Megan McDonald discovered her passion for massage therapy during high school, where her role as a student athletic trainer required her to untangle the knotted muscles of ailing athletes. After high school, she attended Johnson & Wales University, but she couldn’t shake her desire to pursue a career in massage. With this calling in mind, she enrolled in a massage-therapy program at Southeastern Institute just three days after her college graduation. As a certified therapist, she now relieves chronic stress and strain with massage techniques such as Swedish, neuromuscular, sports, and deep tissue. Megan also offers mobile- and chair-massage services for clients who prefer to stay at home or own chairs in need of a massage.
Seven years serving as a medical assistant spurred Nichole Honeycutt—a graduate of the Natural Touch School of Massage and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association—to embrace the preventative philosophies of holistic therapy, which she honed doling out massages in a spa and later a chiropractic clinic. From hushed massage rooms, where soft music, naturally hued walls, and table plants channel tranquility onto the plush beds, Nichole lavishes tense muscles with the oils and long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage. Other modalities include the bamboo fusion massage, which relies on heat to alleviate stress and relieve muscles sore from arm wrestling jammed slot machines. Couples massage classes, energy work, and invigorating salt and sugar scrubs augment the menu of massage services.
At Body Language Therapeutic Massage, Yolanda Watson puts to use a degree in massage therapy as well as national and state certifications. All that training has instilled in her knowledge of modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage. Yolanda also uses her certification in prenatal massage and craniosacral therapy to soothe expectant mothers and balance the nerves and fluids associated with the spine and skull. Smooth stones soak up warmth in the treatment rooms, and aromatherapy oils allow Yolanda to incorporate more senses. When she isn't working in her studio, Yolanda hosts parties and spa days and even travels to clients' homes to give them massages without forcing them to admit they are super glued to their furniture.
