Positive Therapeutic Touch views massage as a means to bolster mobility, relieve pain, and improve mood through the release of endorphins. In other words, they believe that bodywork is beneficial to both the mind and the body. From headaches and anxiety to back injuries and flexibility issues, the list of benefits testifies to this, and the therapists combat these ailments with customized Swedish, trigger-point, and hot-stone massages. Regardless of which massage clients choose, they’ll find themselves sprawled out on a table in a private massage room. An eye mask and heated back pad will keep them cozy while aromatherapy oils tickle their sense of smell and remind them of relaxing times spent lying on a beach or cuddled up inside of a scented candle.
Rather than merely treating symptoms of maladies in the body as they arise, Wellness Beginnings aims to heal the whole person, promoting long-term well-being. Treatments include gentle facials and scrubs, which exfoliate and cleanse the skin with natural aromatics, coconut, and sugars. Wellness Beginnings also offers take-home lotions and supplements to help soothe both body and mind.
The technicians at Wellness Therapy proffer holistic alternatives to invasive procedures, performing a trio of massage modalities to abate aches and unwind knots. Their menu includes Swedish massages—which employ gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to uncoil knots—and deep-tissue massages, which use the same techniques to target lower-lying tissue. They also offer hot-stone massages, which can eradicate tension or lessen pain from a muscle-related injury, and facials that cleanse while moisturizing skin.
Though La'Sonia Nicole Salon and Spa is a new establishment, the center's technicians use time-tested treatments to beautify their clients. Massage therapists rely on the traditional techniques of Swedish massage, which features long, flowing strokes that ease muscle aches and release tension. During a classic European facial, aestheticians deeply cleanse skin to brighten and smooth the complexion, and a spa pedicure leaves digits more polished than a dog that’s been taught to bark with a British accent.
