Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
Located within the Goldminer's Daughter Ski Resort, the aestheticians at Goldminer's Daughter Spa provide relief from winter's moisture-sapping dry air. They use organic ingredients in their facials, and plenty of plant-based compounds in their body treatments as well, such as their blueberry detoxifying wrap. Should a trip down the slopes incur any muscle soreness, they also have therapists on-hand to relieve pain and tension with four modalities of massage.
As the husband-and-wife team behind Breathe Massage & Bodywork, Randy and Nina draw on two decades of combined massage experience to heal their clients with traditional and energy-focused techniques. Since they have worked in spas as well as chiropractic offices, their treatments tend to be both physically beneficial and as relaxing as a warm bath in chicken noodle soup. Among their specialty modalities, trigger-point therapy applies alternating pressures to relieve tension, and deep-tissue massage draws out toxins with firm strokes and friction. To experience a more holistic approach, clients can try cranial-sacral therapy or a reiki session; both alternative techniques work to calm the nerves and put the mind at peace.
Above all else, Karen Hodges embraces education during her massage sessions. Bodywork sessions then draw on this knowledge, incorporating aromatherapy, massage, and self-care instruction to promote wellness. Guests may also request one of Karen's specialty spa treatments, which range from hot-stone therapy to mud and salt scrubs for deep exfoliation.
At A Tree Of Life Massage, licensed massage therapists blend an extensive menu of techniques into custom experiences to extinguish client-specific aches and pains. Therapists draw upon classic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques for every session, combining long strokes and gentle kneading to improve a client's circulation, or focusing pressure on key points along the physique to erode internal toxin buildup. Threads of less mainstream modes also weave into relaxation sessions; therapists can harmonize discordant zones in the body by stimulating reflex points in the feet, or can wake up tired tendons with heated basalt stones and a quadruple shot of espresso. Clients can unwind alone in plush, minimalist rooms, or share their hearts and massage areas with a significant other during a romantic couples session, complete with aromatherapy.
All too often, a massage studio can feel like a revolving door operation, shuffling clients in and out as quickly as possible. Not at Earth Angels Massage & Bodywork. Licensed massage therapist Erika Martin begins each session with an in-depth consultation to discuss medical history and sideline tension at its source. She then blends such techniques as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote relaxation and stimulate the immune system. Therapeutic hot stones are also available.
