Ambiance Day Spa's staff of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists gives clients its undivided attention during facials, manicures, and powerful skin-peel treatments. Nail specialist Cecilia tends to fingers and toes with paraffin dips and vibrant coats of gel polish, and licensed massage therapists Jennifer James and Brianna tends to stress with one of seven massage modalities. At the client’s request or in response to Bat-Signals, the staff works together to assemble spa packages that suit a range of budgets.
At In Harmony Therapeutic Massage, a Swedish massage isn't just a Swedish massage. Nor is a deep-tissue massage just a deep-tissue massage. Instead, the massage therapist uses a traditional massage style as a base to create a custom massage tailored for the individual. To achieve this, communication goes both ways, with the client talking about their preferences and goals, and the therapist educating the client about the benefits they can achieve with bodywork. A session will normally draw strokes from numerous massage modalities, ensuring that, as with the amount of chest hair on the former presidents, no two massages are ever the same.
Heather Hasty defines the word anature as meaning from the earth, a concept she tries to uphold in each of her massage and bodywork services. The owner and head therapist at Anature Massage & Wellness, which is located inside Fisher Office Suites, incorporates organic creams and lotions into each of her treatments, which focus on natural and alternative methods of pain relief such as stretching, reflexology, and distracting the pained muscles with a muscle-size Rubik's cube.
After more than 700 credit hours, Heather earned her massage-therapy certification in 1995, but she didn’t stop there. Instead, she continues to upgrade her repertoire with new massage techniques including trigger point, Asian reflexology, and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, which concentrates on restoring circulation to deep muscles with blocked blood or lymphatic flow.
Dannielle Snellenberger—the massage therapist behind IRA Massage and Bodywork—has trained in a wide variety of modalities, and stays ahead of industry trends as a member of the American Massage Therapy Association. She specializes in sports and deep-tissue massage, loosening taut muscles within the center's small, private spa or in clients' homes. Snellenberger also is certified in techniques such as hydrotherapy and Siddha body detoxification, an ancient Indian method that aims to draw out impurities with heated oil.
Snellenberger enhances massage sessions with warm river rocks and essential oils, and offers several soothing spa treatments. She also performs corporate chair massages that can enhance employee productivity and reduce the number of pencils stuck in ceilings.
Geist Chiropractic's licensed chiropractors offer holistic and natural solutions for a variety of conditions. Dr. Urvi Vayas performs chiropractic adjustments to correct spinal subluxations, attempting to take pressure off of nerves and enhance normal bodily function. She also offers massage therapy, working to eliminate stress, muscle tensions, and inflexibility.
After developing 2,100 barren square feet into a fully custom, comfort-minded space, Dream Weaver Salon & Day Spa opened its doors on August 15, 1999, with a small staff of five pulchritude purveyors. Later expanding to 3,500 square feet and broadening its staff to nine stylists, three nail technicians, three massage therapists, three aestheticians, and three disoriented musketeers, Dream Weaver blossomed into the vast full-service salon and spa flower it is today. A dramatic rounded arch separates the waiting area from the rest of the space, where the certified staff perform a range of beautifying services, including coif coloring, haircuts, mani-pedis, facials, and anxiety-slaying massages.
