Pain comes in many forms, and its causes aren't always obvious. Injuries sustained in an auto accident can lead to persistent headaches, and dozing off while trapped inside a giant mason jar can result in chronic back pain. Whatever the cause of your discomfort, the therapists at Back & Neck Pain Relief Center will help you find a solution. Licensed chiropractic doctor Nathan A. Jones doesn't just treat ailments where they manifest themselves in the body. Instead, he searches for their source and nips them at the bud with techniques that are as safe as they are effective. Massage therapist Jessica Andaluz joins him in relieving clients' stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massage strokes.
At The Atelier, staffers pamper customers' hair, skin, and nails with premium, often organic products as their guests sink into comfy salon chairs. Nail techs brighten nails with OPI and Essie polishes, and premium add-ons, such as a mineral clay mask or chocolate-shea-butter scrub, transform mani-pedis into luxurious spa experiences. The aestheticians use organic Image products during facials and use seaweed during detoxifying body wraps or mermaid-lookalike contests.
The name says it all. At Tampa Bay’s Best Skin and Massage, the staff caters to each client’s specific needs to leave skin refreshed or to massage away pain and stress. Facials such as a chocolate-antioxidant treatment replenish and repair skin and save clients from laborious swims in the chocolate river. Alternatively, the staff uses gentle waxing techniques to rid clients of facial or body hair, and soft, heated sheets and candle-lit rooms enhance the relaxing massage services.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5- to 15-minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
Licensed massage therapist Heidi Garrett soothes bodies and minds with customized massage techniques and alternative therapies such as reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing. Heidi incorporates techniques from Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and reflexology to accommodate each session to her clients' unique needs and wellness plans. Long, flowing strokes alternate with firm taps as Heidi focuses on pressure points to reduce stress and help heal muscles pulled while shot-putting SUVs out of stolen parking spaces.
