At Healing Massage, licensed massage therapist Karen Dowling dissipates stress and muscle aches with varied bodywork treatments. She relaxes clients with hot stone therapy, targets severe discomfort with deep tissue massages, and seeks to soothe body and mind with Reiki treatments.
Still Waters Day & Medical Spa, supervised by Dr. Jack Kotlarz, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, specializes in bolstering beauty with lasers and other forms of advanced technology while still pampering those looking for a traditional spa experience. VelaSmooth anticellulite treatments shed dimples without invasive surgery or witchcraft, Isolaz PPX laser from Solta helps minimize pores and reduce inflammatory skin, and the Apogee Elite laser system frees clients from unwanted body fuzz with laser hair removal. Cosmetic injections and facial fillers pair with traditional aroma-infused spa soaks, facials, and massages. Every spa service includes a plush robe and slippers and begins with a warm footbath infused with fragrant herbs, essential oils, and car air fresheners.
As a massage therapist with nearly 40 years of experience, Ginny Adams has the nimble touch and the familiarity with the body necessary to soothe and soften skin with full-body scrubs. During the 45-minute treatment, Ginny frosts limbs with a naturally derived blend of salt and sugar that exfoliates skin and repels attacks from wolves on the Atkins diet. The addition of grape-seed oil nourishes skin, introducing vitamins and rich moisture to recover each client's natural glow. Although not included in this Groupon, patrons can opt to upgrade to the Body Bliss treatment ($70 extra), which includes a one-hour massage executed by Ginny's nimble hands and a miniature marching band's rhythmic feet.
No two massage sessions are quite the same at Allegria Wellness Center. Owner Shawna Guheen customizes each treatment for her client's goals, whether its pain relief or relaxation. She employs a personalized blend of techniques including neuromuscular therapy and holistic bodywork, such as Thai yoga. During these sessions, Ms. Guheen draws on a background that includes time at Florida’s Therapeutic Massage School and more than 200 hours of continuing education, or the length of one episode of Masterpiece Theatre.
At Ma’ Therapy Massage Spa Clinic, licensed massage therapist Tamala Allen and three other massage therapists unleash their arsenal of massage modalities on tense necks and sore backs. During Hawaiian-style lomi lomi massages, Tamala uses intuition and Sherlock Holmes' magnifiying glass to detect clients' individual stress points, and then customizes her strokes to address those issues. Swedish massages lull muscles into relaxation with gliding strokes and percussive movements, and therapeutic massages target chronic injuries or recurring aches.
Radiante Jacqueline Day Spa's renovated 1900s Craftsman-style home surrounds clients with high ceilings and hardwood floors within and live oak, myrtle, azaleas, and camellias throughout, pleasing both clientele and wayward wildlife. Inside the cozy confines, Jacqueline and her staff use a European approach, making use of luxury products such as Darphin, Germaine De Cappucini, and Phyto. Choose the spa girl facial to boost your face’s collagen and elastin, lift your jaw line, smooth your complexion, and lessen the signs of aging such as acne scars, wrinkles, timestamps, and sun damage. To pamper the body's supporting cast, nab the Groupon for an ion footbath, which uses detoxifying processes to boost immunity, increase circulation, improve complexion, and ameliorate foot pain.
