As the husband-and-wife team behind Breathe Massage & Bodywork, Randy and Nina draw on two decades of combined massage experience to heal their clients with traditional and energy-focused techniques. Since they have worked in spas as well as chiropractic offices, their treatments tend to be both physically beneficial and as relaxing as a warm bath in chicken noodle soup. Among their specialty modalities, trigger-point therapy applies alternating pressures to relieve tension, and deep-tissue massage draws out toxins with firm strokes and friction. To experience a more holistic approach, clients can try cranial-sacral therapy or a reiki session; both alternative techniques work to calm the nerves and put the mind at peace.
Though primarily known for its expression-enhancing facials, Surface Medical Spas extends its professional pampering practices to soothe burdened bodies and tender tendons with a series of stress-subverting massages. Acquiesce to an aromatherapy stone massage that mellows muscles with an essential blend of oils. Or, opt for classical carnal conditioning with the spa's signature rubdown, which mixes Swedish techniques with deep-tissue therapies and reflexology.
The seasoned specialists at Serenity Spa pamper clients with custom facials and massages in 60 minutes. In the signature facial, an expert aesthetician gently traces a planchette over the pores to tailor a treatment to the client's particular needs. During the signature massage, a therapist thwarts the effects of stress by loosening knots and manually melting toughened tissues to shoo out toxins and tension. In both treatments, caregivers advise clients on how best to care for their corps when faced with modern urban life and its unjust dearth of trained monkey butlers.
Seeing firsthand the positive effects that chiropractic medicine has had on his clients keeps Dr. Wayne Hansen passionate about his profession. At Solutions Clinic, he delivers these inspiring results by selecting the most suitable treatment plan from a list of specialties that includes traditional adjustments, ice and heat therapy, and the application of kinesio tape to support weak muscles or conceal them with wrapping paper. He can tailor his services to treat a specific condition, too, be it upper back pain, tennis elbow, or carpal tunnel. Solutions Clinic also employs a massage therapist and a dietician is available at all clinics to draw up healthy meal plans and show clients the proper way to dead lift a 5-pound bag of apples.
At Sophia's Nails, a cast of cuticle curators bathe and hand-paint nails with a stylish stockpile of brand-name products. During the classic pedicure, feet plunge into warm water before an aesthetician trims and shapes digit tips and whisks away calluses. A skin-smoothing cuticle treatment with exfoliation is followed by a massage and concluding coats of polish, bestowing feet with the confidence to strut about town in saran-wrap sandals.
A Tree of Life Massage's licensed therapists employ their soothing grips to assuage aches and combat bodily stress during customized muscle-kneading sessions. Each 60- and 90-minute massage caters its soothing strokes to the visitor's specific sore spots and works around permanent backpack implants, combining an arsenal of techniques that may include classic Swedish, deep-tissue, and relaxation. Romantic twosomes can abandon their stresses in tandem with a 60-minute couple's massage administered by a pair of therapists. As backs indulge is personalized strokes, aromatherapy scents nourish nostrils to create a pleasantly fragrant, romantic experience unlike a candlelit dinner in a horse stable.
