Although Pro Massage Health Solutions' licensed massage therapists are each trained in multiple modalities, they all specialize in one thing: customizing sessions to suit their clients' needs. They accomplish a truly tailored experience by mixing and matching strokes from their arsenal of approaches. For clients who want a relaxing visit, the staff may focus on Swedish maneuvers. Deep-tissue kneading and the sports modality, alternatively, may be in order for those afflicted with aches and pains. Therapists also specialize in treating chronic pain and discomfort with myofascial trigger-point therapy, which works to ease bodies at specific points of tension. The therapists happily cater to people with hectic schedules. They offer late appointments and readily render on-location massages by visiting patients’ homes, offices, hotels, and hotel pillow forts supported by stacks of room-service food.
More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
True to their studio's name, the staff of Hot Yoga House strive to immerse guests in a comfortable, homey atmosphere. The instructors host classes for all experience levels that bathe bodies in 95- to 100-degree heat, and they complement the warm temperatures with compassionate teachings. Each instructor brings their own character to the sessions, which follow the Barkan method of yoga mixed with elements of Vinyasa and meditation. They blend these styles to help students cultivate strength, flexibility, and personal growth, a feat normally only accomplished by doing handstands on top of a hardcover copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Modern Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding. Between classes, the resident massage therapist, Julia Rix, can soothe tense muscles with specialized kneading.
Auto Care and Recovery's crew of nomadic mechanics ventures to homes to varnish vehicles with washing, detailing, and repair services. The wash and semi-detailing begins with a hand wash and dry of the exterior, during which road grime and bugs are decisively shooed away. Each wheel is scrubbed to a centrifugal shine before the entire exterior is coated in wax. On the interior front, all surfaces are pressure vacuumed, whisking away food crumbs and warrens of fanged dust bunnies. The technicians then wipe down the dashboard, inside and outside windows, and doorjambs before spot cleaning any stained mats.
The tooth technicians at Rivergate Dental Care ply their pearly trade in a relaxed, nurturing setting. Dentists tailor each whitening procedure to patrons based on the type and level of tooth discoloration, including routine stains, marks left from recently removed braces, and plaques from 3rd-grade softball victories. During the 90- to 120-minute whitening, lips and gums are shielded before a specialized gel coats the chompers. A Zoom! light positioned over the mouth speeds the blanching, bumping mouth bones up to two shades lighter. Clients receive two bottles of take-home gel to brighten teeth by up to six shades. New patients can also make an appointment for a free exam and X-ray to ensure their enamel's eligibility for whitening.
The color connoisseurs at Don West Painting boast more than 35 years of experience transforming dull walls into dynamic canvases. Armed with their own brigade of supplies, the tint aficionados deftly apply coats of Porter or Sherwin-Williams paint furnished by the homeowners to a room measuring up to 12'x12', with ceilings no more than 10 feet high. Add some pizzazz to the den with hue reminiscent of your favorite jellybean, or give the home office a more dignified look with a chromatic covering that perfectly complements your Spider-Man briefcase. Don West's friendly fresco-ers can also paint trim, doors, windows, and ceilings for an additional fee, and two Groupons may be combined toward the painting of a larger room, if desired.
