The knowledgeable kneaders at Chattanooga's Massage and Bodyworks draw upon years of experience to soothe their clients' bodily troubles and ease away stress. In addition to massages involving hot stone, deep tissue, and light touch techniques, staffers administer spa services such as paraffin dips and body scrubs. And because the office leaves time between appointments, after sessions, customers can spend some extra minutes relaxing on the treatment table and taking inventory of the freckles on the inside of their eyelids.
The aestheticians at Skin & Brow Room deliver on the promise in their salon's name, clearing skin of blemishes and shaping eyebrows into elegant arches. To accomplish the former, they rely on professional cleansers, exfoliating creams, and lotions. The latter is made possible by warm wax, which they also use to remove fuzz above the lips. Other treatments on the menu include eyelash extensions and brow tinting.
Helmed by owner and massage therapist Teresa McBrayer?who brings 14 years of experience to her table?the team of licensed massage therapists at The Massage Office works closely with each client to determine not just what hurts, but how to remedy their pain. Their methods include restorative reflexology, deep-tissue manipulation, and medical massage, as McBrayer has also been a registered nurse for 32 years.
Specializing in anti-aging treatments for the face and body and UV-free spray tans, Silhouette Spa?s staff tightens, tones, and lifts skin with nonsurgical facelifts and stretch-mark removal services. The team uses a variety of nonsurgical treatment methods such as microcurrents, LED therapy, and ultrasonic frequencies to reduce cellulite, lift faces, tuck tummies, and crease rigid pairs of khakis. Along with facial and body-contouring treatments, the spa also offers tanning and massage therapy, and strives to provide great service at every turn.
The Body Remedy's licensed aesthetician and resident lash technician Julie Shelton enhances eyes with semipermanent Xtreme Lashes extensions. Each initial procedure usually lasts 1.5–2 hours, during which clients recline comfortably as trained lash tamers outfit natural lashes with individual, synthetic extensions to give eyelashes the fluttering power of a caffeinated butterfly. When correctly applied, the long-lasting adhesive can keep the faux fringe in place throughout the natural lash's growth cycle, which typically lasts about 60 days. Refill appointments, which last about 45 minutes, should be scheduled two–three weeks after the full set of lashes are applied to maintain a well-groomed set of ocular fans.
Therapeutic Touch's team of licensed massage therapists specializes in a wide range of modalities proven to relieve aches and rehabilitate from injuries. The therapists employ these broad disciplines, including deep tissue, Swedish, sports, hot stone, and other forms of massage, to customize sessions around each individual's therapeutic needs. Hot towels and aromatherapy help soothe the senses during treatments, and clients can request two hot stones to induce deeper relaxation or to chuck at noisy birds chirping outside the window. The staff also improves aesthetic wellness with foot treatments, body wraps, waxing services, and a full menu of facials.
