Professional massage therapist Terri Moss sends healing echoes across muscle walls with her therapeutic menu of massage treatments. In the comfort of a private room, Terri can access lower-layer tension with firm deep-tissue pressure, or alleviate strain in expecting mothers with a specialty prenatal massage. Clients may also supplement massages with luxurious add-ons such as sugar scrubs, hot stones, and warm oil.
At Erica's Massage Essentials, professional therapists make quick work of muscle knots and tension. They specialize in Swedish and deep-tissue massage and use these techniques to customize the treatment based on each individual's needs and preferences. For a longer getaway, clients can add an exfoliating back or foot scrub to their massage.
Amber Sam knows what it takes to do a complete 180. Once an overweight banker with little energy, she decided to change her life by employing healthful habits and stress-busting therapies, an effort that resulted in an 80-pound weight loss and heightened control of her diabetes. Seeing what these treatments could do for her, she left her job and opened Renew Wellness Spa, where she and her staff of licensed massage therapists inspire clients to make more healthful choices and encourage disease prevention.
In a private room enveloped in the soothing aromas of essential oils, herbs, and flower essences, a massage therapist employs long, languid strokes to relieve stress and improve circulation. In a different location, an ionic footbath works to detoxify bodies and keep little piggies from gorging on roast beef. Elsewhere, colon hydrotherapy aims to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. Staffers also prepare custom plans for those in their Wellness Works membership program, which includes amenities such as a quarterly consultation and discounts on most treatments.
