Certified kneading extraordinaire Tom Collins of New Dimensions dims the lights, infuses the air with relaxing music, and unties knots of tension with therapeutic massage techniques. Customers can hop on the gently heated, articulated table for a Swedish massage, which smothers the body in essential oils and banishes general aches and pains through long rolling strokes and percussive interpretations of classic rock ballads. Bodies with specific injuries or pains bask in the orthopedic massage, which addresses target areas to help promote natural self-healing. Using orthopedic stretches and resisted lengthening techniques, the orthopedic massage aims to release contracted muscles, decreasing recovery time after arm-wrestling the inner rods of a cotton-candy maker. For $10, customers may upgrade to cold-laser therapy or a medicupping treatment, which harnesses the vacuuming power of plastic cups for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
A branch of Primary Health Care of Millington, the PHC Medical Spa adds an aesthetic outpost to the organization's body of services. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Regina Lindsey, who either performs or supervises all treatments, the med-spa staff helps to treat problematic skin conditions, slow or eliminate unwanted hair growth via laser, and lessen tension with relaxation and medical massage. Experienced tattoo artist Mamie Shannon fine-tunes faces with permanent makeup, and a range of laser treatments, peels, and cosmetic injections rejuvenate the skin and help lessen the tiny accordion pleats left by aging.
Inside the Open Marketplace mall, Aqua Massage and More tucks visitors into cushioned capsules for quick, soothing sessions at the hands of 36 automated jets. Percussive blasts of warm H2O buffet bodies from ankle to shoulder with gentle physical contact that goes beyond the reach of two hands or a misappropriated rolling pin. A protective impermeable liner separates patients from the watery jets so they won't have to worry about disrobing or getting wet.
