AfterImage Salon's licensed massage therapist, Kristina Gess, employs a variety of massage modalities to knead away knots and relieve bodies of underlying stress. Long, light strokes and gentle muscle molding make one-hour Swedish massages a soothing experience, helping relieve tension and settle petty arguments between stubborn spines and spineless clavicles. Alternatively, hot-stone treatments use polished, heated stones to infuse the body with warmth. The treatment also takes advantage of a combination of Swedish and deep-tissue massage techniques that manipulate muscle tissues into comfortable compliance.
Vue Spa & Salon soothes dorsal surfaces with services such as the customized massage, during which tension-excavating hands traipse over musculature, focusing on aches and pains unique to the client's daily stresses and proneness to wild-typewriter attacks. During the bamboo-fusion treatment, massage therapists augment Swedish strokes with wooden tools, rhythmically stroking backs with heated bamboo and rattan wands to melt away residual tension. The spa's soothing blue roomscape and draped windows lend privacy to the massage rooms, letting guests unwind or rehearse karaoke medleys in a serene space.
All too often, muscle pain holds people back from enjoying their day-to-day lives. The Center for Neuromuscular Therapy has been helping clients escape the shackles of those chronic aches for 21 years. By specializing in alleviating pain, the staff is able to more effectively isolate and eliminate the problem. The team also recognizes that, like a snowflake or each of Abraham Lincoln's beard hairs, each patient's problems are unique.
The center treats pain with neuromuscular massage therapy and deep-tissue treatments that target specific body aches. It also relies on holistic practices such as chiropractic, yoga, and a Chinese cupping technique.
Hair that isn't properly cared for is far more likely to split, damage, and speak poorly of you in its tell-all memoir. That's why expert stylist Kathy Anna pampers strands with bold highlights and voluminous layers that flatter the features. Clients also may seek Kathy's expertise for feather extensions or to nix unwanted hair during a specialty waxing session.
Before owner and lead therapist Kevin Franklin places a massage hand on his clients, he performs a medical screening to determine the best massage techniques to use according to their needs. He and his staff customize massages with a wide range of modalities, such as deep tissue, sports, Swedish, trigger point, hot stone, and massage cupping.
