At Balance & Change Massage & Bodywork, owner Felix Reyes invites clients in for a little bit of balance and change. The licensed therapist silences stress and tension using Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massage styles and caters to the needs of expectant mothers or overworked storks with prenatal work designed to elevate emotional mindsets and ease physical pressure off joints and muscles. A roster of relaxing add-ons such as hot stones, foot scrubs, and mini facials are also available and can transform any massage into a spa-like experience.
Sure, a massage can be great for simple relaxation. But at You-Nique Spa, therapist Cheetah De La Corona doesn't see why her treatments can't do more than that. For example, her TLC massages are designed to kickstart lymphatic drainage and desensitize touch receptors, which can ease discomfort for people suffering from arthritis or cerebral palsy. The Look at You massage supports weight-loss plans by incorporating techniques that can help break up deposits of fat cells. Some treatments include the opportunity to mix your own essential oil, as well as extras such as reflexology, foot soaks, and, if you have a head, scalp massage.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care.

The massage therapists of Zen Garden Massage Therapy center their service menu on the classic massage, assuaging clients' aches and tension with light, soothing strokes. Clients can enhance their pampering with additions such as hot stones, Thai stretching, reflexology, and edible treats to create sessions of supreme relaxation. Massages can be enjoyed solo for one hour of undisturbed tranquility or while lying next to a significant other for a romantic de-stressing session accompanied by champagne and chocolates. Therapists are also well-versed in tension-melting foot reflexology treatments and skin-refreshing body wraps, which cocoon frames for up to 50 minutes as staffers massage facescapes or complete a painting of a mummy. Clients can also brighten teeth with the Da Vinci Teeth Whitening system, which soaks into chompers for 15–30 minutes to illuminate smiles.
Emma Anderson knows what it's like to be in pain. When medication wasn’t enough to relieve her persistent aches, she turned to massage and found not only relief, but also a new career. Since that fateful day in 1991, Emma has spent more than 25,000 hours honing her craft as a licensed massage therapist.
All of that time has certainly paid off. Emma now serves as the official massage therapist for the Dallas Sidekicks indoor soccer team and owns Texas Sports Massage. In addition to her relaxing Swedish and prenatal massages, Emma specializes in sports massages designed to elongate muscles and help the body heal after strenuous kicking, throwing, or touchdown dancing.
Apothecaries predate modern chemistry and pharmacology by hundreds of years, tracing their tradition of fashioning medicinal compounds from natural ingredients to Baghdad in the 8th century and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. These skilled practitioners developed proven techniques to heal weary patients with organic balms and soothe hoards of barbarian Gauls with aromatic oils. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard, Affinity Salon & Spa mines these ancient techniques in its own apothecary, custom-making products and reinforcing their mission to guarantee each client "quality services with a personal touch." Winners of a 2010 Talk of the Town award, the staffers dote on every guest with spa and salon services that integrate oils, herbs, and teas to foster a relaxing, organic experience.
