Fingers slowly manipulate the muscle fibers along clients' spines at Tree Of Life, releasing tension and seemingly making stress evaporate as they move down the back. This is a Swedish massage, a technique that the three massage therapists at Tree of Life know extremely well. While encouraging relaxation through these lighter massages is certainly a part of their repertoires, each also has a host of other modalities in which they specialize. Among these, deep tissue massages ameliorate aches and pains, while romantic couples sessions make it unnecessary to hold your own hand during the massage.
The pampering professionals at Iwordi Wellness rejuvenate bodies with holistic-healing treatments, facials, European massages, and laser treatments that fade varicose veins. After a treatment, clients can head to the onsite holistic gift shop and peruse its selection of aromatherapy oils, candles, and incense.
Though the words "deep-tissue massage" often call to mind strenuous pressure on sore muscles, the certified staffers at Tamara's Touch manage to achieve beneficial results while using a gentle approach. To coax stress from bodies, they manipulate muscles using Japanese-style acupressure techniques during shiatsu massage, and use polarity massages to rebalance the body's energy, relieving clients of the need to sleep on a teeter-totter. The crew also takes special care of pregnant clients, seniors, and athletes.
Wink Boutique accessorizes outfits and refines fingernails with a flair that earned it a nomination for best manicure and pedicure from Cityvoter in 2010. The boutique's shoe and boot selection offers popular OTBT, Not Rated, and Naughty Monkey footwear that can withstand strolls across hot coals much better than paper hospital slippers ($45–$100). An assortment of jewelry items bedazzles extremities while eschewing brand-name associations ($12–$70), and handbags adorn lonely arms with their heft as well as their sparkling personalities ($50–$100). Luxury-seeking hands can retreat to the comfort of a black leather armchair, where a dry manicure shapes the body's signature digits before gently slathering them with a Shellac application intended to prevent chips for up to two weeks or through several rousing piano solos.
Ageless Beauty Day Spa’s aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists form a tripartite front against the advances of Father Time with spa services that gently erase wrinkles and foster a sense of inner youth. By exfoliating skin with facials, tending to nails with professional OPI products, or alleviating the pains and anxieties of arm-wrestling bosses for promotions, the staff works to replace the body’s toxins with a concentrated jolt of energy.
