Call Scott Ingell a purist. The seasoned massage therapist and licensed chiropractic assistant doesn?t unpack strawberries and champagne upon each client's arrival; instead, he targets the source of their chronic pain and lays his healing hands upon the affected muscles. That makes Focus 4 Massage a fitting name for his practice, where all the emphasis is on medically based massage treatments performed in a clinical setting. An influx of new massage therapists makes for a diverse range of services, with modalities encompassing everything from neuromuscular and trigger-point therapy to time-tested Swedish relaxation massage techniques and pelting cranky muscles with pennies.
With the belief that true beauty can be found "within the sparkle in your eyes, the confidence in your steps, and the lilt of your laugh," Royal Treatment Day Spa Salon assembles a medley of services designed to bring out clients' inner royal majesty.

Stylists can deftly transform the full spectrum of hair types with locs or flattering cuts, and massage therapists administer 10 types of massage to target pain or promote a sense of relaxation not felt since being nestled in a blanket of scratched-off to-do lists.
Specializing in anti-aging treatments for the face and body and UV-free spray tans, Silhouette Spa?s staff tightens, tones, and lifts skin with nonsurgical facelifts and stretch-mark removal services. The team uses a variety of nonsurgical treatment methods such as microcurrents, LED therapy, and ultrasonic frequencies to reduce cellulite, lift faces, tuck tummies, and crease rigid pairs of khakis. Along with facial and body-contouring treatments, the spa also offers tanning and massage therapy, and strives to provide great service at every turn.
The knowledgeable kneaders at Chattanooga's Massage and Bodyworks draw upon years of experience to soothe their clients' bodily troubles and ease away stress. In addition to massages involving hot stone, deep tissue, and light touch techniques, staffers administer spa services such as paraffin dips and body scrubs. And because the office leaves time between appointments, after sessions, customers can spend some extra minutes relaxing on the treatment table and taking inventory of the freckles on the inside of their eyelids.
Two pairs of hands are better than one. That's the thinking at Hands-On-Healing Massage Therapy and Bodywork, where licensed massage therapists Derek Bhimji and Virginia Lee help rid clients of stress and anxiety. The duo specializes in therapeutic massage and pain management, and even performs a massage designed exclusively for those who suffer from aching muscles caused by workouts. The team has been trained in myofascial release, deep-tissue and sports massage, hot stones, and different bodywork techniques, plus reflexology.
