Muscle knots. Chronic aches. Deep-seated reservoirs of stress and anxiety. These and other ailments bring clients to Elements Therapeutic Massage, where they find relief courtesy of professional therapists who customize their treatments to match individual needs. The studio’s unique, level-based system gives clients an idea of what to expect during the session; they can request a low level for a gentler experience or opt for a higher level to eliminate any soreness remaining from the previous day’s jousting tournament. Each massage therapist has his or her own specialties, and treatments may draw on relaxing Swedish and hot-stone techniques or firmer deep-tissue and trigger-point strokes.
InVitalize Medi Spa is a full-service place of pampering, chock-full of talented and friendly technicians who will coddle keratin until it's as stress-free as a fish in water wings.

Next, an expert in foot aesthetics and comfort will care for your toe cuticles, shape and buff your nails, exfoliate your hard-working heels, and drive out digit tension during a moisturizing foot massage. Both services are finished with fresh coats of shiny polish and a complete reading of The Salon, a 2005 feature-length film starring Vivica A. Fox.

A therapist with seven years of ache-taming experience, Tracie Nichols has the know-how necessary to help people manage pain, say sayonara to stress, boost energy, and prolong their muscles’ health. During a deep-tissue massage, her fingers will spelunk into muscles’ deeper recesses to ferret out tension and mollify recent damage or recurring hurts. The exfoliating full-body scrub then strips dermal terrain of rough patches, revealing skin that’s as soft as a baby’s knee-pit.
