For nearly 12 years now, the massage experts at Armando's Day Spa have tailored each massage to address and correct conditions ranging from poor posture to chronic pain. With a combined total of more than 2,000 hours of instruction, the team knows just where to place hot stones to melt pent-up tension, as well as the exact therapeutic techniques that can help muscles recover from injuries sustained in the workplace, on the sports field, or following an automobile accident. But their soothing services don't stop at massage. Body wraps corral the power of volcanic earth clay to increase circulation and help expel toxins, and facials with microcurrent technology help retrain facial muscles and reduce their dependency on battery power. Even the nail services at Armando's can have therapeutic benefits—the spa's signature manicures and pedicures blend in seaweed masks, mineral clay, and other vitamins and marine extracts to help soothe arthritis and reduce joint inflammation, leaving hardworking appendages feeling as healthy as they look.
In Massage Therapy Connections’ homey abode, two licensed massage therapists oversee a team of fellow LMTs, all of whom adhere to a philosophy of natural health. Treatment amenities such as hot stones, foot scrubs, and body wraps imbue the experience with even greater sublimity. Other specialties include Thai massage, Bellanina facelift massage, myoskeletal alignment, and sports massage.
At International Massage, Asian-inspired décor, glowing candles, and spa music work in tandem to nurture a tranquil and relaxing environment. Before their appointments, guests wait in a quiet waiting room where they can watch videos that describe the various types of massage offered by the clinic. Once they've been escorted to their private treatment room, they're free to relinquish pent-up pain and tension as trained specialists knead at sore muscles using a custom blend of techniques. To keep the feel-good vibes flowing throughout the body, International Massage also offers Chinese cupping treatments that promote better blood flow, as well as ionic detox foot baths that aim to coax toxins from the kidneys, liver, and colon to ensure the body passes its yearly emissions test.
The staff at Natural Healing Arts takes a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to health and fitness. Inside two Florida facilities, a roster of doctors team up with chiropractors, massage therapists, and wellness counselors. They each work to structure personalized programs for patients with services ranging from chiropractic care and acupuncture to more modern treatments such as laser therapy, and they join forces to create the area’s healthiest potential kickball team. In an effort to foster continued care at home, the staff offers tips to optimize the healing process for current injuries or preventive measures against future aches and pains.
Natural Health Center's doctor of oriental medicine, Mary Kay Cetan, taps into the ideologies of traditional Chinese medicine, which dates back more than 5,000 years and conceptualizes the body as a landscape affected by emotional and physical climates. Holistic services and supplements combat both acute and chronic ailments. Hair-thin acupuncture needles safely boost blood and energy flow to assuage pain and enhance internal functions, such as the digestive process that turns blue cotton candy back into blueberries. A licensed massage therapist with more than 35 years of kneading experience aims soothing strokes at pent-up aches, tension, and knots. Honed over 2,000 years, homeopathy mediates bodily discordances with diluted doses of irritants, such as a naturally derived onion substance that wards off watery eyes or a pulverized Cupid's arrow that heals heartbroken clients.
