Ocean Spa's main studio looks as though a massage party will break out at any moment. Eight beds—each draped in red and white bedding—huddle together, emulating the communal healing experiences common in the Far East. But clients with privacy predilections can opt for a private treatment room separate from the main area. Either way, the experienced massage therapists apply palms and knuckles to muscle knots, tending to tension with custom, full-body strokes. In addition, the team also specializes in reflexology, the practice of addressing bodily ailments through the hands and soles of the feet.
You may feel like you're dreaming at WellFit Massage. And it's not just because of the relaxing massage services, which include Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot stone massages as well as specialty foot massages that begin with a warm soak. The studio's communal treatment room throws folks into a whimsical dreamscape with its panoramic mural of a dreamlike nature scene, complete with green fields, mountains, and a unicorn.
During 8th Wonder Spa's signature reflexology sessions, guests lounge in cushy recliners as they look out through the spa's windows at an ocean of clear aqua-green water and trained reflexologists work on relieving tension through their feet. Other services allow for the same level of indulgence, including a foot soak featuring a wooden tub of Chinese-herb?infused water and head-to-fingernail massages that instill relaxation with novel sensations. Aromatic massage lotion enhances massages, during which fully clothed guests recline onto a table as skilled therapists activate pressure points and birthmarks all over the body with gentle tapping.
The certified masters of muscle stiffness mitigation at onspot massages carefully untie the tight knots of tendon tension with a smorgasbord of relaxing massage rubdowns. Opt for the long, sweeping strokes of the Swedish massage to help improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, and gelatinize muscles into the consistency of freshly churned butter while enjoying a creamy sea of deep relaxation and Scandinavian surrealism. Bring bodies back into neuromuscular balance with a deep-tissue massage by soothing sinews with slow strokes and penetrative pressure to treat soft-tissue injuries, relieve muscular pain, and increase circulation. A sports massage ails athletes by focusing on the set of muscles used in their particular sport, enhancing endurance and performance while lessoning the chance for future injury. Influenced by the Chinese system of acupuncture and cocktail wiener preparation, the shiatsu massage replaces needles with kneads to arouse the body's energy pathways and bolster general wellness. Onspot massages provides a back-relieving pregnancy massage for clients carrying womb tenants, as well as a reflexology massage that can target various areas of the body through a hidden remote control in the sole of the foot. Clients receive an aromatherapy hot-towel therapy as a calming coda to their restorative treatments.
Despite its name, Happy Feet ? Massage, Nail & Skincare doesn?t just make feet happy; it makes the whole body grin from ear to ear. Mixing Chinese medicinal herbs with techniques including reflexology and acupressure, the massage center?s therapists help eliminate tension and remove impurities. The centers immerse clients in bright traditional Asian decor, with plush, white beds complemented by red oriental lanterns, red curtains, and decorative art of Confucius jumping for joy after working out a kink in his neck.
Past a beachy front lobby filled with vibrant plant life and wire-wrought furniture, warm wooden fixtures and deep violet massage beds await. It's there that owner Nina Wang and her staff perform their specialty treatments, from targeted facials to muscle-healing bodywork. Each skin care treatment is informed by a one-on-one consultation, helping customize the procedure and give skin the best shot at looking flawless. The rest of the body benefits too, as Thai yoga massage and hot-stone massage modalities are kneaded deep into sinews to release trapped tension or that song that's been trying to get out for days.
