With more than 30 licensed massage therapists and four area locations, Healing Hands Massage is on call seven days a week to bring relief to gridlocked muscles. Swedish-style therapeutic massages calm tense muscles and overworked minds with light-to-firm pressure and various kneading techniques. Deep pressure massages assuage tight muscles that require extra convincing, and pregnancy massages provide relief to expecting mothers whose joints ache from the added weight of carrying around future grown-ups. Massage therapists also make house calls for customers who’d rather receive bodywork in the comfort of their homes, and haul their massage chairs to offices or conventions to appease the overworked masses.
At Alliance Chiropractic & Massage, Lipo-Light sessions emulsify fat in the body with noninvasive LED light. Dr. Trista DeLuca—a chiropractic physician with more than 15 years of experience—uses LED light to shrink fat cells without breaking the skin, and body-vibration sessions help remove released water and glycerides.
The goal at Erika Lynn Massage goes beyond achieving relaxation, though that's certainly a part of it. The massage therapists here seek to foster their clients' overall health, and they do that with a wide slate of massages that address any number of physical and emotional complaints. To that end, their techniques range from Swedish massage—a general relaxation massage—to deep-tissue massage—which focuses on relieving specific points of tension or injury incurred while trying to bench-press your childhood home. Other modalities include prenatal and hot-stone massage, as well as reflexology treatments, and they augment treatments with luxurious add-ons such as citrus hand treatments and aromatherapeutic scalp massages.

Elements Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
In Italian, onde means "waves." Drawing inspiration from the soothing sound of waves on the shore, Onde Spalon's aestheticians strive to imbue their services with a similarly soothing quality. Customized to suit each client's needs, Onde's spa treatments smooth skin with waxing, detoxify it with algae mud wraps, and remove its wrinkles with anti-aging facials. Such services earned the spa three awards in the late aughts from Main Line Today, including two for best facial.
But Onde Spalon's treatments don't just focus on enriching skin. Nail techs pamper fingers with cured gel nails or odorless acrylic nails, as well as buff toes over copper pedicure sinks. Stylists, meanwhile, shape 'dos with precise cuts and texture treatments, including perms and thermal straightenings. Onde's spa and styling units even collaborate on pre-wedding packages, which ready brides with fancy updos, biweekly manicures, and makeup that repels any cake smushed into their face.
