LaVida Massage believes massages should be available to everyone. They back up this belief not only by offering a wide range of techniques—athletes, mothers-to-be, and office workers alike can find a modality to suit them—but also by making the massage process easy. Each of their massage sessions last 60 minutes: the middle 50 minutes are reserved for the massage itself, and the last five minutes allow time for redressing. The five minutes that precede every service go toward a consultation where clients can discuss individual concerns, such as neck tension from leaning over a computer keyboard or foot soreness from driving their car like the Flintstones.
Stepping into Hideaway Massage is like stepping into a seaside resort at dusk. Candlelight flickers against framed prints of starfish, seahorses, and nautical maps hung on blue and sand-colored walls while tinkling chandeliers hang above heated massage tables. Inside a private single suite, a fireplace crackles, its light casting a warm glow and keeping stressed-out Santas from stopping by uninvited. Within this relaxation haven, seven nationally certified massage therapists drape their clients with sheets as they unfurl more than 10 varieties of massage, employing everything from Swedish strokes to hot stones. Aromatherapy oils may fill the senses and heated towels may help ease clients' transition into a calm state of bliss, but either way, as their muscles unknot they can stay hydrated with complimentary spring water. Therapists also apply many of the same treatments to pairs during couples massages and soothe skin and muscles with add-ons such as seaweed body wraps, foot scrubs, and head massages.
From brief chair massages to extended deep tissue or Swedish services, the certified massage therapists at Relaxation Studio can perform relaxing treatments that fit into any client's schedule and needs. Beyond common massage modalities, the therapists can soothe weary clients with a variety of specialized techniques. Reflexology sessions root out stress throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the feet, and body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells to leave clients feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated. The staff can also enhance treatments with stress-alleviating add-ons, including cupping therapy, body scrubs, and hot stones chiseled from the warm, sunburned foreheads of Mount Rushmore.
The massage therapists at Star Therapeutic treat the body as a whole, using holistic methods to promote healing and a positive sense of well being. Their fingers are trained in a variety of party dances and massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot-stone therapy, and acupressure.

Giving clients an extra bit of luxury during their sessions, all massages are performed using blends of organic oils and herbs to soothe skin and promote relaxation.
At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.
I-Surgeons's team of physicians oversees a range of sight-restoring laser treatments. LASIK and PRK, the main laser eye surgeries at the practice, enhance visual acuity in patients suffering from myopia, astigmatism, and hyperopia, and the treatments use three different lasers to reshape corneas of varying thicknesses. To determine if patients are eligible for these surgeries or in possession of superpowers, a doctor examines eyes during free consultations that measure corneal thickness and pupil size. The surgeons also turn their eye expertise to blepharoplasties to correct drooping upper lids or puffy under-eye bags. They fight wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead with Botox and Dysport injections.
Hanging lamps throw flickers of amber light onto the dark walls of Tea Spa's lobby, a tranquil cove that foreshadows the pampering performed beyond the front room. The spa's licensed massage therapists use essential oils, aromatic foot rubs, and hot towels during bodywork treatments such as a signature massage. Clients can also use their brief reprieve from the harshly lit outside world to nourish skin with a vitamin-infused facial or to decompress in the infrared sauna and bid adieu to toxins before they have a chance to settle in and wire the body for basic cable.
