At the Centre for Ayurveda & Indian Systems of Healing, experienced practitioners integrate East Indian Ayurveda medicine with other forms of holistic healing to nurture patients' overall wellness. Thai yoga massage unites yoga poses and hands-on bodywork to help clients release tension, improve circulation, and morph into their spirit animal. As participants hold guided postures, therapists press their palms and thumbs against the body's energy lines and pressure points. The massage techniques strive to balance each client's innate energies so the body can heal itself and find the courage to stand up to weak showerheads.
Amid the soft earth tones of Zen Spa's walls, an atmosphere of tranquility radiates. The 5,000-square-foot space is dubbed an "urban sanctuary," one where guests might escape their hectic lives to drink tea, slink into steam rooms to sweat out stress, or receive blissful massage and body treatments across 10 private rooms and two couples suites.
Complete Balance Health Centre lives up to its name by housing a diverse staff whose services aid in patients’ overall well-being. Doctors of Chiropractic help treat injuries and correct posture with adjustments that include pretreatment warm-ups and posttreatment care, such as stretching and heat therapy. Naturopathic doctors nimbly execute an array of natural practices, from acupuncture to homeopathic medicine and botanical and herbal substances. Meanwhile, registered massage therapists improve blood flow and flexibility with soft-tissue manipulation that alleviates chronic pain and convinces muscles to hand over stress and life savings. But the Complete Balance Health Centre team knows that not all pain is physical. The staffers also help people combat fear and anxiety stemming from traumatic events, such as car accidents.
At The Amatsu Way, Susana Solari practices amatsu therapy, an ancient Japanese treatment that believes overall wellness is achieved by re-balancing the entire body while working on soft tissue. During a typical session, clients lie on a table like best-selling rag doll Washcloth Willy as the practitioner employs light pressure, massage kneads, and natural body movements such as gentle folds, lifts, and twists to reach the soft tissue. Once applied, the techniques can yield an array of benefits, including reduced pain, restored balance, and increased circulation.
Helen relies on sophisticated technology such as bipolar radio frequencies and ultrasound to fight wrinkles and other dermal imperfections on her clients' faces and bodies. Radio frequency treatments can be used to stimulate collagen regeneration, which in turn leads to tighter skin and a better defense against the pinches of nosy aunts. Ultrasound treatments also work to tighten the skin by targeting the deep, subbasement of the dermis and strengthening the connective tissue therein. Helen also offers traditional cleansing facials and chemical peels, along with waxing services and Reiki energy therapy.
Like hands reworking clay into a beautiful statue, Head To Toe Massage’s staff members sculpt aching muscles into strong, tension-free bodies. The staff works in a variety of massage modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy. Warm, smooth stones help unravel tension in muscles during the hot-stone massage, and skilled hands plunge into challenging knots during deep-tissue massages to leave bodies feeling refreshed. Head to Toe also plans to offer couples massages and RMT-led massages.
