The Trinity Mobile Spa specialists take their wax, bottles of nail polish, and talented hands on the road. They travel to a client’s place of work, home, or vacationing neighbor’s home to dispense beauty services that include European facials, mani-pedis, and aromatherapy massages. They also package together a number of services for spa parties to celebrate an impending marriage, baby, or birthday.
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.
Teresa Cobb, the licensed massage therapist behind Kneaded Relief, helps clients feel their best with custom-tailored massages. Deep-tissue pressure, trigger-point therapy, and relaxing Swedish massages are a few of her specialties. She also applies aloe- and herb-infused body wraps, which tone the skin while whittling inches from the physique. Teresa works within Hissy Fitz Salon, which also houses a boutique stocked with clothing, boots, jewelry, and candles.
Helmed by massage therapist Wanda Turbyfill, a talented staff dispatches massages, facials, body wraps, and waxing treatments. The team cultivates a friendly, personal ambiance in the spa. Visitors appreciate this, praising the warm atmosphere almost as strongly as they laud the therapists' skill levels and thoroughness. Surroundings are quiet, low-lit, and clean, clients say, and Wanda's massages replace aches with tranquility.
Certified massage therapist Galia Statsenko is dedicated to making sure clients leave her massage sessions more relaxed, happy, and loose. Working to unwind tight muscles in the back and neck, she eases long-held tension in the body and promotes healing with her kneading and percussion strokes.
Cathy Moses Baldasserini studied dance and therapy and received full scholarships to New York dance conservatories such as Martha Graham and Alvin Ailey. She began practicing Pilates as a way to hone and refine her body, the instrument of her self-expression. Now, she teaches it full time at her fitness-dedicated studio, Pilates for Life.
Joined by nine other teachers, Cathy reforms students' bodies with both basic and machine-assisted Pilates, yoga, kettlebells, and tai chi classes. She uses Pilates for its renowned ability to strengthen the site of injuries or chronic pain and to provide conditioning for weak joints, problem backs, and those who have osteoporosis. She also implements devices such as reformers—a system of pulleys and sliding platforms that enhance Pilates's classic horizontal exercises—and towers, which incorporate the natural resistance of gravity into Pilates movements.
