Besides English and pig latin, French is spoken in more countries than any other language. That's why Houston French provides group and one-on-one classes to verse everyone from students and businessman to those taking a vacation in the finer points of the French language. During lessons, clients can learn basic points, such as conjugation and vocabulary, or tackle more-comprehensive tutorials, such as inflection and how to properly tilt a beret.
Within one of the private treatment rooms at Serendipity Spa, a massage therapist kneads tense muscles and loosens stiff joints using a variety of bodywork techniques. Swedish massage sessions employ light to medium pressure to improve circulation, whereas more intense deep-tissue massages hone in on localized ailments or stables of charley horses. Add-on services such as aromatherapy and hot towel treatments enhance the experience with fragrance and warmth.
The massage therapists at Spa Heaven have a sensible solution for continually improving their techniques: they practice on each other. By drawing on that expert focus group, the staff has mastered the skills to soothe clients' bodies and minds with a unique blend of more than 15 modalities of Eastern and Western massage. But along with touch, the team also appeals to the other senses, filling rooms with the scents of aromatherapy oils and incense.
Spa Heaven's staff goes above and beyond treating aches with a slew of skin-rejuvenating body wraps. They concoct the compounds in their wraps from organic coffee in the organic green coffee body wrap, tropical fruit in the de-aging tropical fruit body wrap, and the finest mud pies in the aromatic dead sea mud wrap.
A team of chemists and physicians devises the recipes for Image Skincare products, a line created in the United States. The team works with ingredients that boast both high quality and power, which is why Be Radiant Artistry’s beautifiers employ Image Skincare products for their facials and peels. Once aestheticians unearth naturally glowing skin with a signature facial or an O2 lift, skin is primed for a makeup application—the staff specializes in wedding-day looks.
Jay Robertson loves his job. As a child, he connected with nature and served as the designated family massage therapist. He later entered the military and spent 15 years on the streets as a police officer—but after being injured on the job, he realized it was time to go back to his roots. So he decided to become a licensed massage therapist and holistic healer, channeling his positive synergy with nature to help others.
Jay offers many different types of massage, from deep tissue and prenatal to sports and Swedish, and uses gems and crystals to facilitate energy healing. With a mobile service, relaxing studio, and nutritional counseling available, Holon Massage is a calming place to have chronic stress relieved and feel tight muscles melt.
Walking into Spatastic Bodywraps feels a bit like coming home. More like a living room than a lobby, the waiting area is decorated with comfy loveseats and couches, textured wall hangings, and potted plants. Beyond a wooden folding screen and through a closed door is the treatment area, which is decorated in soothing neutral tones with a large padded treatment table dominating the space. Once visitors recline on the bed, aestheticians go to work, extending, tinting, and perming their eyelashes. But not all their work is focused upon the eyes. As their name would suggest, they also offer body wraps in addition to facials and massages.
