Mark Berry of My Dallas Massage aims to banish stress and pain from the body with the healing power of touch. Adept at many kneading modalities, Mark has studied anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology in order to facilitate his two-pronged approach to pain management: temporary relief followed by a more permanent solution. His knowledge of the human form helps him ease muscular aches as well as other sources of discomfort, including headaches, neck pain, shoulder problems, and allergies caused by huffing the cat.
A duo of aestheticians invites visitors to sidle up to their Downtown Beauty Bar, where they beautify bodies with an array of services. "My focus is healthy skin [and] how to improve your skin," the owner says. The pair pursues this end through facials, peels, and body wraps enhanced by massage and fueled by Dermalogica products. When not attending to the dermis, they turn their attention to body hair, waxing away unwanted tufts or accenting eyelashes with crystal-tipped extensions, an excellent way to confuse people into believing it’s snowing out.
The Skin Bar's founder and enthusiastic lead aesthetician Christy Sample pampers faces and bodies inside private treatment rooms. Her facials cater to most skin types, and can help clients combat oily, acne-prone skin or turn back time with tightening and firming face creams. Christy's hands also melt away physical and emotional tension with Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, and couples massages, and gently free bodies of unwanted bristles with warm wax and quick swipes of a cloth strip.
For two decades, Koffee Day Spa has done its part to make downtown Dallas just a little more relaxed. The swanky boutique spa draws visitors through the doors with the promise of luxurious services, including body scrubs, 12 styles of massage, and facials that sound both rejuvenating and delicious. However, it's not just about feeling great—most of Koffee's services also provide a beauty boost, with natural mani-pedis that add glamour to nails, waxing sessions that rid the skin of unwanted fuzz, and makeup lessons help clients achieve a perfect cat-eye look without learning to speak Cat.
In 1991, Aqua Medical Spa began as a modest, four-employee salon specializing in simple hair and nail treatments. The business rapidly grew to lavish clients with cutting-edge services that nourished the face and body, and by 2000, it had transformed into one of Dallas's first medical spas. Today, the spa continues to treat men and women with a unique combination of rejuvenating spa services and results-driven medical treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Tittle leads a team of doctors and nurses in enhancing outer appearances with noninvasive Zerona laser treatments, Botox cosmetic injections, and plastic surgery. Spa specialists focus on inner well-being with both classic and high-tech services—including laser- and radio-frequency-based facials and massages that begin with a consultation and end with a careful analysis of the client's dream journal.
Dallas Colon Therapy gently cleanses clients’ interiors with comfortable colon-hydrotherapy treatments. After reclining on a soft table, fully covered clients ready themselves for the treatment. The 45- to 60-minute process removes waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs, leaving bodies to focus on more pressing issues, such as turning the vestigial tail into a dorsal fin.
Wellness experts soothe and heal the body on the outside as well. They ease away tension with hot-stone and Swedish massages and tighten loose skin with body wraps.
