The licensed massage therapists at Soluna Massage come trained in a wide range of bodywork modalities, spanning from classic Swedish and deep-tissue massage to acupressure, cupping, and reiki. They use these techniques and many others to help their clients find relief from stress and respite from pain, especially back aches and pregnancy aches.
At Solace in the Highlands, a team of family members, including a licensed aesthetician, revitalizes faces with glo therapeutics serums as massage therapists soothe backs with long, light Swedish strokes. Elsewhere in the spa, aromatherapy massages soothe the body with essential oils, and hot stones radiate gentle heat to ease tense muscles.
Melissa Drumright earned her massage-therapy diploma after more than 800 hours of course work. She continues to hone her skills in various massage techniques. Depending on each client's needs, she might use modalities such as reflexology, hot-stone massage, therapeutic massage, or Swedish massage.
At Eden Therapeutic Solutions, staffers specialize in massage therapy, highly individualized skincare treatments, and professional waxing services. Massage therapists soothe weary muscles with several modalities, ranging from relaxing aromatherapy sessions with fragrant essential oils to prescribed medical massages that counteract the pain and inflammation of an injury.
Skincare experts combat specific issues such as acne or signs of aging with more than a dozen facials and procedures that use custom-blended organic botanicals and other ingredients found in Bioelements formulas. They can slough away dulling cells and address fine lines with a pumice-peel manual microdermabrasion or soothe the effects of ingrown hairs or a pre-duel glove to the cheek with a gentleman's facial.
Pretty pampering pros at Knockouts Haircuts for Men, which is now under new ownership, spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-theme men?s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon?s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or untie chin-strap beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments. Stationed in private treatment rooms, the salon?s massage therapists promote further relaxation with modalities designed to melt residual tension from gentlemanly handshaking contests.
