Licensed massage therapist Heidi Garrett soothes bodies and minds with customized massage techniques and alternative therapies such as reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing. Heidi incorporates techniques from Swedish massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and reflexology to accommodate each session to her clients' unique needs and wellness plans. Long, flowing strokes alternate with firm taps as Heidi focuses on pressure points to reduce stress and help heal muscles pulled while shot-putting SUVs out of stolen parking spaces.
As its name implies, Executive Physiques Spa and Fitness houses the best of both worlds: a fitness center where personal trainers devise custom, calorie-burning exercise routines, and a relaxing oasis where massage therapists and aestheticians tend to skin and strained muscles. The fitness center’s trainers and instructors regularly attend workshops to keep their skills sharp. Rather than use their strength to twist clients’ arms into signing contracts, they focus on developing the exciting workouts that anchor their drop-in fitness classes. The spa’s staff pick up where they leave off, soothing feet in ion baths and erasing fine lines with nonsurgical face-lifts.
Carrollwood Massage's highly trained, licensed therapists set aching muscles on the road to recovery with an array of soothing and rehabilitating massages. A relaxation massage employs precise, medium-pressure strokes to relax muscles and minds until they reach a state of tranquility similar to napping inside a velvet lotus flower. Guests can also enlist their backs in a deep-tissue massage, during which a talented technician alternates kneading pressure to accommodate the client's level of comfort and relieve sinew-tightening tension. After 60 minutes of expertly administered treatment, beneficiaries may experience a reduction of chronic pain caused by injury, overwork, or excessive flexing in front of the mirror.
At this beauty lounge specializing in clinical skincare, technicians each have their own ways of turning back the clock. Whether they're lifting away dull, dead skin cells with medical-grade chemical peels, encouraging new cell growth with LED therapy, or slimming away inches with FIT body wraps, the professional beautifiers leave clients looking younger and healthier without the need for invasive procedures.
In addition to their skin and body specialties, Azul Nails Waxing Beauty also treats hands and feet to professional nail care services. During every manicure and pedicure, staffers fill enamel pedicure bowls with fresh water instead of using whirlpool footbath; use all-natural hand and foot scrubs made onsite daily with fruits, veggies, and essential oils; and shape nails with new, disposable files, buffers, and other mani-pedi instruments. Manicures are enhanced with soothing options such as hot-milk-and-almond softening soaks, honey-butter cream, and organic-bamboo scrubs.
As impressive as the ZunZun hummingbird in Cuba—which flaps its wings up to 200 times per second—the human body is capable of miraculous self-healing, assuming the proper provisions. At ZunZun Therapeutic Care, Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Hurley and staff use time-tested—and drug-free—techniques to rehabilitate injuries and alleviate chronic pain. Following an auto accident or sports-related injury, clients might want to see the chiropractor for manual, flexion, and activator spinal adjustments or visit with the onsite acupuncturist. Licensed massage therapists Mayumi and Odin, meanwhile, handle all sorts of muscular plights through advanced therapeutic massage techniques, including neuromuscular re-education, trigger-point therapy, and cranial-sacral therapy.
