The therapists at Body Awakening Massage and Wellness Center will work with you to determine the most beneficial techniques to use during each session. They certainly have a lot to choose from, with expertise in everything from craniosacral therapy to Japanese shiatsu massage. When they aren't soothing tension with deep-tissue pressure or relaxing hot stones, the therapists tend to the body's other needs with detoxifying wraps that infuse skin with nutrients and break down fat cells, reducing appearance of cellulite and aid in inch loss.
Lansdale Massage Therapy and Wellness provides hours of relaxation by combining some of their most popular services into elaborate packages. A milk-and-honey exfoliating wrap joins a Swedish massage and herbal skin treatment in one package, and another unites an organic foot-reflexology session with an organic facial. The wellness center even has a certified health coach on staff to guide clients toward better eating habits and improved relationships with their friends, family members, and that one referee who keeps making lousy calls.
The recipe for youth? Start with an Immuno-Skin Complex, and combine it with five exfoliators, hydrators, and skin brighteners. Then add Dr. Murad's Youth Building Acupressure Massage, throw in an eye-lift treatment, and finish it off with a cooling mask. The result: an extensive 60-minute anti-aging facial that lifts and tones the skin, diminishes wrinkles, and restores a healthy glow to cheeks.
This is The Queen Spa's Youth Building Facial, one of nearly 10 facials the spa uses to restore its clients' natural beauty and simultaneously raise their spirits. All of the facials here utilize Dr. Murad products and aim to deliver clinical results with a soft touch. Of course, facials aren't the spa's only forte: massages are also on the docket with styles ranging from stress-busting Swedish massage to the yoga-like Table Thai massage, for which clients remain fully dressed in loose clothing or their most flexible snowsuit. Mani-pedis and waxing are also offered and conducted with the same doting attention as the spa's massage and skincare treatments.
