Family health histories, dietary habits, previous medical care, and extracurricular activities all constitute invaluable information for the therapists at Back n' Balance Massage. Equipped with this knowledge, they can better assess the root causes of a client's musculoskeletal concerns and recommend a suitable treatment regimen. Their treatments eschew invasive procedures altogether, opting instead to use personalized combinations of massage therapy and rehab services to treat everything from chronic pain to stress. The massage therapists employ a variety of specialized modalities as they soothe tension. Gentle Swedish strokes unfurl knotted muscles; deep-tissue pressure targets withheld tension buried further beneath the surface; and myofascial massage techniques aim to restore joint mobility.
Massage therapist Bee Queener channels her training at Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy and passion for helping to ease discomfort and pain into custom therapeutic massages. Bon Vitale Naturale massage oil helps Bee's hands to skate smoothly over the skin as they apply targeted pressure on client-chosen areas, untying knots and easing aches in modalities ranging from Swedish massage to myofascial-release therapy. Beyond banishing discomfort from backs during massage sessions, the spa's custom facial massage services—in addition to perfecting the skin—seek to ease tension from the face, neck, and jawline, helping clients to swiftly chew steak without help from mother birds. In keeping with her own personal vegan habits, Bee uses vegan facial products from Lush, carefully chosen to match each client’s unique skinscape.
Bee’s ground-level office employs warm orange tones to elicit feelings of health and vitality. The welcoming atmosphere encourages patrons to express their needs and comfort levels, and in keeping with this philosophy, clients can undress as much or as little as they like, lounging beneath professional draping or keeping on beloved aluminum foil cardigans.
Licensed massage therapist Bilky Joda-Miller believes that massage can do more than just loosen tight muscles. That’s why her signature services go beyond full-body massages—including those for children and infants—to include regimens geared toward the pain relief and detoxification of fertility and prenatal clients. Her belief in the healing nature of her art also extends to cancer survivors and their caregivers, whom she grants special discounts. Whatever their background may be, clients begin their treatment by settling onto a cozy massage table as soft notes of soothing music keep their minds centered and their spirits providing beatbox accompaniment.
Salon Infinity's expertly trained team explores beauty's limitless possibilities with a menu of aesthetically driven services for hair, nails, and skin. The staff keeps abreast of current trends and hones its skills via ongoing training sessions and seminars, and each of its services deploys products from trusted brands including Redken, Pureology, and OPI. Before hair treatments, coiffeurs conduct in-depth consultations with each client to determine a suitable cut or color tailored to flatter individual features and personal styles. In private rooms segregated from the bustling styling stations, nail technicians dole out foot massages, soothing soaks, manicures, and pedicures, which make feet more presentable and less likely to hide inside Thanksgiving turkeys.
Fluffy green sheets and scented jasmine vanilla oil mark two of the most recent upgrades that massage therapist Crystal Earl is constantly making to help ensure her clients get the most out of their time at Fairy's Touch Massage. The studio's owner and sole therapist, her specialties range from gentle Swedish to soothing hot-stone massage, though she gladly customizes each session to match her clients' aches, pains, and favorite disco songs. Clients can seek out Crystal's services amid her zen, teal-colored treatment suite or enjoy their massage in the comfort of their own home for an additional fee.
Stepping into Coterie Purlieu is almost like stepping into another world, and not just because of the foreign-sounding name. After a customs officer confiscates your stress and tension at the door, dip your hands into a bath of warm water or recline as the spa’s massage therapists untie your knots. Soothing facials wipe skin clean of dirt and grime, tanning booths bestow skin with golden color no matter the season, and waxing services swiftly remove hair and bumper stickers from the last election cycle.
