Licensed massage therapist Renee Pierce cultivates relaxation and recovery during each bodywork session. She specializes in the Swedish modality, gliding her hands across backs with the smooth, continuous movements of meatballs on a slippery plate. She also excels in deep-tissue and hot-stone massages, which break up tension in thick muscles. For expectant mothers, she offers prenatal massages; for athletes, she provides sports massages.
At Salon Masquerade, expert cosmetologists refresh and refine appearances with a cadre of salon and spa services. Hairstylists tend to tresses with professional coloring and styling products by Schwarzkopf and Kenra, and technicians beautify nails with mani-pedis, CND shellac, and OPI polish. Further inside the salon’s aqua-blue and white spaces, deep-tissue and Swedish massages unkink muscles and relieve tension, and deluxe and thermal facials clear skin of dirt and blemishes.
The experienced dermis doctors at Mosaic Medspa offer patrons a complete list of skin-rejuvenating services and high-tech prettification procedures in a calm, relaxing spa atmosphere. A trio of laser hair-removal sessions zaps away at uncooperative follicles on either the underarm or bikini-line areas, diminishing strand growth with brief pulses of intense light. Each session takes about 15–30 minutes, leaving ample time to return to work or to test the aerodynamics of newly smoothened areas in a bikini-clad relay race or a high-five decathlon.
Adorn Salon's expert stylists combine ongoing education and acclaimed products to transform tresses of every type. Coif cultivation begins with a thorough cleansing with Biomega shampoo and conditioner before a neck and scalp massage eases tension from constricting hats or unwieldy mascot heads. A cut and style allows locks to opt for a desired look, whether it be just a trim, something new and distinct, or a style inspired by a favorite shrubbery sculpture.
At Two Hands Massage Therapy, an attentive duo of licensed therapists kneads muscle dough with a variety of massage modalities. Swedish strokes’ combination of gliding, kneading, friction, and tapping can help improve circulation, ease aches, and defeat muscle-knot bosses to unlock bonus levels of tranquility. Alternatively, deep-tissue techniques target connective fascia tissues to unseat deep-dwelling tensions. Clients who opt for three or five massage treatments schedule sustained muscle kneading that follows the saying "Rome wasn't built in a day, and everyone really needed a massage by day two." For an additional fee, customers can upgrade to an extra-deep-tissue massage ($10/treatment) or hot-stone treatment ($15/treatment).
In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, Kaisha Zick has a nursing background. She understands the inner workings of the body, empathizes with pain and suffering, and fully believes in the ability of massage to provide tangible medical benefits. Through careful, focused bodywork, she draws upon both of her specialties to provide emotional and physical well-being.
After graduating as one of Fortis College – Mobile's top massage therapy students, Jen Adams began combining her extensive knowledge of reiki and aromatherapy with massage therapy to help clients relieve stress and remedy health issues. As a licensed massage therapist with more than 1,000 hours of clinical experience, she expertly pampers clients with the strokes and kneads of various massage modalities, including Swedish, neuromuscular, craniosacral, and lymphatic drainage. Clients may customize their massage sessions with a number of add-ons such as a footbath, ear candling, or kinesio taping—designed to ease muscles fatigued from overexertion or overzealously directing people to the beach.
Beyond the business day, Jen Adams lends her superpowers to the community as a volunteer massage therapist for Hands for Heroes, an organization that provides therapeutic bodywork to military veterans.
