When Barbara L. Baaden underwent what doctors said was life-altering eye surgery, she drew upon her skills in massage therapy, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, and aromatherapy to ease her discomfort. Now, when she's not applying her medical massage skills to fellow eye surgery patients, she uses those techniques to help heal clients at Body by Baaden. The licensed massage therapist incorporates homeopathic and essential oils into seven varieties of massage, including shiatsu and myofascial styles. She also enriches bodies with skin-soothing aromatherapies and her natural Flawless Facial, whose botanical oils help prevent wrinkles and brighten complexions more effectively than attaching a strobe light to your forehead. Barbara also ministers to inner wellness, stimulating bodies' healing responses during homeopathic sessions and plumbing the subconscious during hypnotherapy sessions that rid patients of addictions and phobias.
Revive’s talented team of licensed massage therapists calls upon extensive educational backgrounds and experience coddling muscles to soothe away each client’s stress and aches. Massage modalities target ailments from anxiety and depression to the injuries and stiff muscles that result from a battle with Medusa. Swedish massage's long, gliding strokes assuage pains inside and out, whereas deep-tissue massage's targeted pressures lift out knots. Anatomical menders also focus on holistic healing during reflexology visits, where pressure in the hands and feet travels through the body's interconnected pathways to help improve the health of organs. Myofascial release stretches out cramped soft tissue to take pressure off of nerves and blood vessels, and shiatsu massage targets pressure points to unclog the body's energy meridians in time for a roller derby or marathon of speed-reading.:
Founded by two experienced chiropractors, Highpointe Wellness & Slender Wrap Spa promotes health with treatments that aim to oust stress and toxins. The spa specializes in chemical-free body wraps, which help tone and tighten the skin while whisking away impurities. The signature Lipase body wrap, which uses soft bandages soaked in a specially designed solution, works to root out stubborn cellulite and fat deposits with the tenacity of a bulldog raised by a seasoned litigator. Several types of wraps are fortified with electrolytes, too, which can boost energy levels and address mineral deficiencies. In addition, you can stop by the facility to relax and detoxify with its infrared sauna, ionic foot baths, and three styles of massage therapy.
At Just Glamorous Salon & Boutique, clients, and more specifically, their unique beauty and style needs, come first. That’s why, with every haircut, clients also receive a shampoo and blowout style; why the Kertain smoothing treatment is designed to keep locks sleek for up to three months; and why owner and stylist Rachel Peluso frequently journeys to fashion-savvy NYC to stock the salon’s boutique.
In addition to hair services, the staff also beautifies clients with specialty makeup and waxing services, whether it’s for the big wedding day or the big welding day, which involves a lot of molten metal and, thankfully, no one wearing highly flammable gowns.
Licensed therapist Norm Durkin knows that massage isn't just about relaxation. While there are many physical benefits to be gained from a good massage, there are just as many that register on a deeper emotional level. Norm relieves stress and anxiety with a variety of specialty techniques, lifting tension from the fascia during craniosacral therapy and targeting acupressure points during shiatsu sessions.
The massage therapists at Sanctuary 7 Massage Therapy alleviate stress and pain using a soothing spread of therapeutic modalities. Swedish kneads help boost blood circulation and loosen muscles throughout the body, whereas deep-tissue services send targeted pressure to untie knotted muscles. To enhance the sessions, the staff can top patients' backs with hot stones that warm muscles buried beneath layers of tissue.
