Pure essential oils supplement the healing touch of certified massage therapist Nicole Pocaro. She stirs these relaxing sensory tools into massages customized from seven different modalities, from Swedish and deep-tissue to reiki, reflexology, and hot-stone massages. During reiki sessions, she aims to promote natural self-healing, personal awareness, and enhanced energy by manipulating the body's energy as well as its soft tissue.
While working under the guidance of a chiropractor and physical therapist, massage therapist Lori Boyer learned how skeletal and muscular manipulation can release both physical and mental tension. Now at the helm of her own salon, she helps clients reach balance through an assortment of therapeutic massage styles. She utilizes up to 50 heated basalt stones in order to soothe muscles during hot-stone massages, and she applies strategic, targeted pressure to relieve chronic pain during deep-tissue massages. She can complement these popular modalities with detoxifying hot wraps or reflexology, which unblocks nerve impulses throughout the body to release stored tension and accidentally swallowed gum.
The licensed technicians at Grande Med Spa clear hair from bodies with lasers, contour bodies with state-of-the-art treatments, and perform Botox injections and microdermabrasions. A full line of skincare products populates the shop's shelves, and jewelry waits to adorn wrists that are tired of sporting four plastic novelty watches. Private treatment rooms comfort patients with soft linens and artwork, and plush furniture and a flat-screen TV keep clients occupied in the waiting room.
At times, it's difficult to tell which is more stylish, Pink the Salon's elegant interior or the clients who walk out of it. Though the salon's hanging chandeliers, arched doorways, and soft lighting are certainly beautiful, its customers also shine after a visit. Trained stylists and aestheticians craft stunning looks, doling out haircare treatments, facials, and mani-pedis inside the chic confines. Under the supervision of a medical professional, Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane help individuals fight the aging process without having to undergo surgery or encase themselves in a translucent wax shell.
The human body is composed of hundreds of individual bones and muscles, none of which would work in harmony were it not for two essential elements: the mind and the soul. The therapists of Core Healing Bodyworks do everything in their power to ensure that body, mind, and soul are operating on the same page. This means that their massages don’t just treat physical ailments; they penetrate the body’s outer layers to relieve stress and relax anxieties. Aside from classic Swedish and deep-tissue treatments, the therapists offer special modalities, such as hot-stone therapy and reflexology. Reflexology treatments work to balance the body’s energies by applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, and dorsal fins.
Dr. Celestine M. Joseph, a board-certified OB/GYN, has been banishing fat from men's and women's bodies with liposuction since 1988. During free consultations, he determines the best way to help patients attain the body shape they desire, whether he's helping them slim down after an pregnancy or a large weight loss. Dr. Joseph also helps patients boost their self-esteem elsewhere on the body with vaginal cosmetic surgery services.
Diane Hawkins, the certified massage therapist and namesake of Healing Hands Massage by Diane, brings relief to minds and bodies through a wide array of massage modalities. The gentle, flowing strokes of her Swedish massages relax the body and give the mind a break from everyday stressors, and her deep-tissue massages target specific areas of tension and soreness. During concentrated massages, she focuses kneads on a single area of complaint, such as a sore neck or a funny bone that won't stop telling knock-knock jokes. She also specializes in reflexology and chair massages that hone in on the neck, back, and shoulders.
