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.
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.
At Total BodyWorks, located inside Prevail Fitness, licensed massage therapist Nicole Masterson melts away clients’ tension with massages, facials, and herbal body wraps. As soft music plays in a warm, quiet room, Nicole customizes each treatment to clients’ needs, often fielding requests to focus on specific areas or help with fifth-grade science-fair projects. Always flexible, Nicole unfurls her massage table by appointment Monday–Saturday and for two Sundays every month, and clients may use Prevail Fitness’s childcare services during their visits for no additional charge.

The founders of Baby On Board 4D Ultrasound aimed to create a place that brought advanced ultrasound technology outside of the hospital and created a comfortable environment staffed by fellow mothers. In seeing this vision through, they created a facility that offers everything from prenatal massages to photography service. But perhaps its most signature service is its ability to render two-, three-, and four-dimensional ultrasound images that up to 15 people can coo at in an ample viewing room.
Spa-a-Peel?s sign says it?s ?the look fabulous studio,? though the offerings within its peaceful confines go much deeper. Upon entering, clients are greeted by a smiling staff member who stands ready to help clients transform their day with a massage, a facial, or a mani-pedi. On top of that, treatments at Spa-a-Peel transport guests away from the daily grind and into a place of relaxation and bliss that feels like home, but with a far more talented staff.
