At locations in Franklin, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pick-up.
The stylists at R Place Salon skillfully trim tresses and artfully highlight locks to capture the sun-streaked look of summer or the moonlit look of a long Alaskan winter. Keratin treatments tame frizzy, unmanageable hair, while perms add bounce and body to straight strands. Massage therapists on staff knead tension out of muscles as nail techs primp and polish nails with mani-pedis.
A regal entrance reminiscent of a Roman bath welcomes patrons into Gjeto’s Salon and Day Spa, where painted ceilings and arched entryways carry on the lavish theme. The luxury isn’t just in appearances, either. Upon arrival, a friendly consultant greets each guest, handing off a plush robe, slippers, and keys to a private locker for stashing away belongings or a long workday's bad vibes. From there, guests can head into the day spa, where zen-like spa rituals aim to soothe both body and mind. For instance, licensed massage therapists can dispel stress and muscular tension with an aromatherapeutic massage before patrons sink into a cozy pedicure couch for an indulgent foot and nail treatment topped off with vegan polish. While women enjoy Jane Iredale makeup applications, men can head to the gentlemen's oasis for a facial specially tailored to freshly shaven skin. Flanked by vibrant golden walls, the hair salon welcomes both men and women to take a seat at a mahogany station, where they can admire their freshly snipped locks in a small rectangular mirror.
There's no need to be intimidated by Main Street Massage Northville's long list of massage services; the center's highly experienced therapists can help clients pick out the best modality to suit what ails them. They are also able to combine different modalities to create fusion massages to relieve client's unique brand of muscle pain. Modalities include Swedish-style, as well as deep-tissue and trigger point massages, designed to relieve symptoms of chronic pain from auto accidents, migraines, carpal tunnel, or repeatedly walking into sliding glass doors.
Though there are only a handful of services on the menu at Diann La Spa LLC, each treatment promises a slightly different experience. Relaxing strokes characterize the standard spa massage, whereas intense kneading marks the deep-tissue massage. For better circulation, hot stones soothe the back along with massage, and to engage senses other than touch, aromatherapeutic oils do the trick.
At some point or another, everyone needs a getaway, and A Way of Escape Massage offers just such a place.

With these modalities, they help people escape the stress that comes with working, raising a family, or counting the number of stars in the sky in your head.
