Zen Massage's trained therapists relax patients' taut tendons, putting bodies and minds at ease. Visitors can lie back and drift away on a 30-minute Silver Cloud massage, feeling the bed's jade rollers warm tendons, dissipate bodily tension, and create a low-pressure system in the brain (a $20 value). A massage therapist then soothes backs with experienced knuckles and palms in the 30-minute Quick Fix massage (a $49 value). After the massage restores skeletons to their naturally upright form, patients emerge with spines as straight as the horizon and faces beaming bright as a lighthouse.
During each of Divine Massage’s therapies, heated tables set the stage for relaxation while licensed therapists shoo away stress using hot towels and coconut oil. Swedish massages employ long, gliding strokes to comfortably kick-start blood flow and dispel tension for an experience as relaxing as a slow-motion hug. Stress sluggers delve below surface-level muscles during deep-tissue massages to uproot embedded knots. Deep-tissue massages often incorporate the muscle-lengthening motions of sports massage as well, stimulating recovery from athletic injuries. With a one-hour couples massage, pairs of friends, partners, and sports-team mascots sip cider before lying side by side while therapists promote relaxation with Swedish massage techniques. Clients can upgrade any massage to include hot stone, reflexology therapies, or four-hand massage, in which two therapists work simultaneously, for an additional cost.
Heavenly Hands Massage & Spa’s strong-thumbed therapists dissipate their clients' tension with the same massage techniques they have used to unwind professional athletes from the Utah Grizzlies, Blaze, and Bees. With this veteran experience, the staff focuses on alleviating chronic pain or injury-related discomfort through therapeutic methods that range from the standard modalities of Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the Eastern practices of Thai massage and ashiatsu. Ashiatsu—a centuries-old method born out of discomfort from pillows not being invented—evicts deep-seated tension by having massage therapists steady themselves on a bar anchored to the ceiling and apply pressure with targeted footsteps. To iron out energy kinks, a team of yoga instructors orchestrates classes that stretch and strengthen muscles while centering the mind. Hairstylists and aestheticians round out the bodily bolstering with expert styling and nine varieties of facial.
Andrea, the holistic therapist behind Massage and Bodywork by Andrea, brings bodies back into balance during appointments conducted within The Wind of Keltia. She draws on nearly two decades of experience to perform specialized techniques, such as targeted injury massages and deep-tissue massages, which work out chronic aches and pains. Additional treatments with clay masks, warm stones, and hot towels leave clients feeling relaxed and pampered.
Within the deep-vanilla walls of A New U Salon & Spa, stylist Megan Gonzales sets up shop with all the necessary tools and brand-name hair potions needed to style, nourish, and transform her clients’ locks. Each of Megan’s treatments begins with an in-depth consultation, during which she discusses her subject's desired style, level of upkeep, and bridge clearance height before picking up her shears or coloring brush. Specializing in Redken color treatments, Megan refreshes hairstyles through her expertise in face-flattering cuts and subtle yet stylish hue transformations.
