Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Kirk Carlile was deeply troubled by the damaging effects of lasers and chemicals on people's skin. Though these costly procedures claimed to heal, they frequently did far more harm than good, changing skin pigmentation while doing little to reduce wrinkles or other skin concerns. That's why he decided to pursue natural methods to rejuvenate and beautify complexions, tapping into his education as a micropigmentologist and permanent-makeup artist. At Color Me Beautiful, he helps his clients achieve their desired beauty results with everything from collagen therapy and stretch-mark removal to permanent-makeup services, including tattoo removal.
Claire Clark Face & Body's eponymous owner draws upon on more than a decade of experience as she enlivens and massages clients inside her peaceful treatment room. When she’s not alleviating stress with her hands, Claire uses a variety of beauty products to pamper clients with spa services such as organic facials infused with raw fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Her microcurrent face-lifts tighten visages without the risk associated with surgery, just as her waxing services remove unwanted hairs without the risks associated with napping under the vacuum cleaner.
Studio owner, chiropractor, and hot-yoga enthusiast Dr. Bridget Brasfield helps her students to hone mind-body awareness through therapeutic yoga practice. Her studio heats up to a balmy 95 degrees to help even the most rigid of students to stretch and strengthen as they flow through a series of poses. As a result of the heat, students can also expect to sweat out the naturally occurring toxins that stem from everyday living and daily attempts to become superhuman via lab mishaps.
Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
