Fran DiBattista initially opened BeneFit Studio, Salon, & Spa as a wellness studio with expert fitness instruction. The next step seemed only logical: after clients have worked on their physique, offer Aveda salon and spa treatments to beautify the rest of their bodies. The studio caters to athletes with boot camps, personal training, assisted stretching, and nutrition counseling, all designed to help clients burn calories and sculpt their bods. In the salon and spa, stylists and beauticians also pamper customers with services that range from hair cuts and styles and Aveda coloring to facials, body waxing, nail treatments, and massage.
GG Massage Studio's friendly massage therapist will strategically arrange gently heated, smooth-basalt lava stones on key energy points of your body to deliver a comfortable warmth that drains away tension and brings your muscles to the optimal stress-exorcism temperature. At the same time, skilled hands work warmed oils deeply into your skin, which causes the lymphatic system to flow at an increased rate, which causes your immune system to strengthen and your circulatory system to refresh, which causes your smiling muscles to flex, which causes your dreamboat movie star to fall in love with you, which causes your life to become a paparazzi gold mine, which seems incredibly unlikely yet, at the same time, highly plausible.
At her studio, Anne Schuster, LMT's healing hands relieve clients' aches and pains. The massage therapist does so with deep-tissue, Swedish, and chair massages. To augment these massages, she offers full-body wraps, which include exfoliation and body muds. Using wellness massage as her cornerstone philosophy, Anne sees massage therapy as an important aspect in promoting overall wellness. With the belief that massages can relax, renew, and rejuvenate, Anne incorporates heated tables and music as she customizes each massage to clients' needs. Results include reduction of muscle tension and stiffness, relief of muscle spasms, increased flexibility, skin nourishment, posture improvement, and an overall increase in health and stress reduction.
Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
