Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
The rustling of palm trees as tradewinds blow through them, the scent of saltwater carried in by rolling waves—nothing quite matches the carefree feel of a day on a beach in Hawaii, which is perhaps why The Wellness Journey Studio's owner Denise Baker-Bradley named her massage offerings after beaches on the tropical islands. But since she believes therapeutic massage therapy is not just for relaxation, these sessions have a therapeutic spin and can increase energy by lowering blood pressure. They can even improve sleep patterns better than keeping a closetful of sheep. During the Papohaku massage, for example, she rolls rods of bamboo over muscles to relieve deep-seated tension. For the celebrity facial massage sauna, she uses facial massage therapy techniques to reduce signs of aging. Before each stroke, she warms the massage oil, as clients stretch out beneath soft sheets and a soundtrack of beach sounds lulls them into a state of calm as deep as the ocean. The studio is located off Route 24 in Brockton.
Sue Lane has performed an estimated 24,000 bodywork sessions since she became a practicing massage therapist in 1984. By founding and operating Muscle Inc., she joins similarly experienced therapists in healing with a variety of bodywork modalities. To dispel stress and aches, foster flexibility and circulation, and help unravel injury symptoms, staffers at the practice's two locations employ a variety of techniques, among them reiki, medical massage, and craniosacral massage. No matter what type of session clients opt for, they're pampered with hot-cold therapy, soothing music, and a complimentary bottle of water. The Brockton location even features a chair lift, which assists people with mobility issues.
