The massage therapists at Euphoric All Over Day Spa whisk their clients to quiet, comfortable rooms to perform about a half dozen massage modalities. Therapists can play soft music while rendering classic techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massages, or relaxing couples massages. The staff might also incorporate lotion or light oils, which lubricate the CD player so the soft music continues to play.
As a partner of ResearchMDs, a family practice and research facility, RMDs Aesthetics & Med Spa adds a clinical component to relaxing spa services. The physician-supervised team balances complexions with cleansing facials that employ prescription-grade products, such as the SkinMedica line. Technicians fine-tune laser treatments to treat stretch marks, scars, or dimples developed from drinking unsweetened lemonade. A licensed massage therapist addresses stress and soreness with seven different modalities, including neuromuscular-therapy sessions focused on releasing nerve pressure at trigger points.
Crane Rehab Center tackles life’s obstacles with physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Specialists help clients from infancy to seniors facing such difficulties as autism spectrum disorders, sports injuries, delayed social skills, and postsurgical rehabilitation. The center’s wellness and fitness program offers personal training and group fitness classes as well as nutritional counseling for those trying to overcome their fear of eating anything green.
For the massage therapists at The Bailey Institute Of Muscular Therapy, touch equals medicine for the body and soul. Strokes, friction, and taps are the tools of their trade, useful for dislodging painful knots and giving customers an opportunity to share knock-knock jokes. The team tailors sessions to each client’s needs, fusing techniques such as deep-tissue therapy with medical massage to relax muscles and promote healing. Marathoners, triathletes, and New Orleans Saints team members flock to the facility for sports massages, which can boost flexibility, enhance performance, and help prevent injuries.
Daniel Rummel, the licensed massage therapist at Old Metairie Massage, brings 17 years of hands-on experience to his tailored one-hour massages. A presession consultation identifies problem areas, such as aches or permanent shoulder pads, after which Daniel cooks up an individualized, multimodality treatment he dubs "massage gumbo." A stainless steel unit, called the hydro collator, creates heat that improves circulation, while deep-tissue and physical therapy kneading draw toxins out of their muscular lairs. Daniel's current and previous patients include Saints players seeking soothing bodywork and impossible-to-open pickle jars.
