Your feet are soaking in a warm footbath while flower petals float on the surface of the water, giving off tropical fragrances. Or maybe you’re lying side by side with a loved one as you both relax to an aromatherapy foot scrub and full-body couples massage. Or perhaps you're getting your shoulders massaged as you rethink your decision to play Sisyphus in the town play.
These are just a few examples of the stress-relieving treatments you can experience at Su Massage Therapy & Chi Wellness Retreat, where therapists use both ancient and modern techniques with a singular goal: well being. They manage pain with Chinese herbal treatments and hot footbaths, as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that induce feelings of deep relaxation and target sources of discomfort and tension.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
Rodi Salon and Spa's Cel.lux cosmetic light device shines a spectrum of colors on patients' faces, aiming to soothe a range of skin ailments in 25- to 45-minute light therapy sessions. As the client lies supine on a treatment table, a luminous wand passes methodically over features without touching them, much like a human windshield wiper, emitting a custom cocktail of rays that attempts to treat skin maladies. Each of the light's seven colors is designed to match a healing trait, with violet purifying the skin, blue soothing, aqua oxygenizing, green diminishing redness, yellow toning muscles, orange helping skin tone, and red stimulating collagen and causing all traffic on the forehead to screech to a standstill.
Capricornucopia hopes to help its visitors achieve greater health of body, mind, and spirit. The center takes an all-encompassing approach to healing, busting through bodily barriers that may otherwise hinder healing by way of various techniques. Those techniques include reflexology, reiki, and shiatsu, as well as some other not-so-everyday treatments, including stellar healing and magnetics. To maintain its already strong sense of community, Capricornucopia also hosts workshops, classes, and special events.
From brief chair massages to extended deep tissue or Swedish services, the certified massage therapists at Relaxation Studio can perform relaxing treatments that fit into any client's schedule and needs. Beyond common massage modalities, the therapists can soothe weary clients with a variety of specialized techniques. Reflexology sessions root out stress throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the feet, and body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells to leave clients feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated. The staff can also enhance treatments with stress-alleviating add-ons, including cupping therapy, body scrubs, and hot stones chiseled from the warm, sunburned foreheads of Mount Rushmore.
The certified therapists at Heart and Hand Therapeutic Massage understand that some bodies respond to certain treatments better than others. Keeping this in mind, they offer everything from gentle Swedish techniques to firm deep-tissue strokes. They even have a specialty raindrop therapy designed to align the electrical fields of the nervous system by dripping essential oils across the spine. Heart and Hand’s services, however, extend far beyond the spine. Life coach Lori McGhee offers emotional support, career guidance, and tips on how to improve your health by sleeping better.
