Azia is one of Birmingham's newest budding medi-spas, offering a full list of services overseen by highly trained medical and aesthetic professionals. Laser hair removal enables clients to ditch cumbersome skin-grooming techniques such as shaving, waxing, and bathing with porcupines, and it eliminates unwanted whiskers more permanently by disabling growth at the root. During each of the three treatments, a strand-zapping expert will perform an elegant dance over the skin's surface with a Palomar Starlux 500 System laser as a partner. Each follicle to interfere with the foxtrotting footwork will be called out by a pulsating flash of laser light, causing deep embarrassment and its subsequent departure from the auditorium of your skin.

Massage Envy offers the regenerative properties of various massage types and facial treatments that make bodies feel springtime fresh year-round. Massage Envy's licensed body therapists unravel tense coils of accumulated inner stress through a treatment that caters to each client's needs. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, and deep-tissue massage focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension.
Skilled practitioners at Much Kneaded Massage Therapy manipulate muscle knots with traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, or knead out knots with their bare feet during Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. A Swedish massage’s long, slow strokes work to increase circulation, reduce soreness, and ease stiffness more swiftly than taking a bath in fabric softener. Deep-tissue therapy targets chronic pain and tight muscle knots with more focused pressure. Alternatively, barefoot practitioners grip overhead bars for support during an Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy massage, leveraging their full body weight and masterful tap-dancing technique to achieve the client’s desired level of pressure. This unique style of massage fuses European and Asian techniques and utilizes pulling, pushing, and stretching movements that may help repair damaged soft tissues.

Beyond enhancing the outside, the med-spa also helps clients feel better on the inside. Licensed massage therapists ease nagging pains and chronic tension with a range of modalities, from traditional strokes such as Swedish and deep-tissue to Eastern-inspired therapies such as energy work.
