Drawing on both Eastern and Western techniques, Vy & Michael Massage Clinic’s licensed massage therapists can alleviate pain and stress throughout the entire body. From the West, the staff incorporates long, soothing Swedish massage strokes to promote blood flow and relaxation, and more localized sports-massage techniques to quell injury-specific pain. A rhythmic combination of stretching and pressure, Thai massage enhances flexibility and balances internal energy. The staff also offers specialized treatments for expectant mothers, couples, and busts that miss their body.
The therapists at Works of Wonder Massage pluck out weeds of pain and stress and plant the seeds of relaxation with a custom regimen of Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massages. Alongside massage services, the staff revitalizes complexions with the hot-cold therapy of the hot-towel and cold-stone facial, releases environmental contaminants with detox body wraps, and exfoliates feet with thorough scrubs.
Matt and Cherie helm the tables at Elkins Myofascial Release, tending to problems of the body and spirit with massage. Matt specializes in neuromuscular therapy, deep-tissue, myofascial release, and craniosacral therapy; Cherie offers Swedish and relaxation massages. Swedish massage helps promote general relaxation and looseness in the body, while deep-tissue massage targets specific points of pain and tension, whether the result of hunching over a computer desk all day or being asked to be the desk for your co-worker's laptop.
Organique Spa's name is no coincidence. The newly inaugurated beauty spot swaps harsh chemicals for organic ingredients in its formulas. Organic facials cleanse and rejuvenate skin naturally, and the green peel sloughs away dead skin cells without stripping the skin of its nutrients. Mani-pedis employ natural polishes, and tanning sprays grant clients a bronzed glow without harmful UV rays or orange streaks. During relaxing appointments, clients can even enjoy wines culled from organically grown grapes.
During spa packages, brides-to-be, birthday girls, and teens don comfy spa robes and slippers before receiving soothing massages, mani-pedis, and facials from therapists and aestheticians at Spa Lounge. Classic facials revive spirits, cleansing facials wash away impurities, and rejuvenating facials refresh skin that may be marred by blemishes or covered in headlines from old newspapers. Aestheticians can also embellish faces with brow waxing and lash extensions.
The comforts of home. The luxury of a spa. The beauty specialists at Mikal Houston Mobile Spa combine the best elements of both, bringing pampering services to clients’ homes or offices. Individuals and groups relax as technicians add glamor to nails with manicures, ease aches during massages, and scrub away milk mustaches with cleansing facials. The aestheticians also specialize in unique treatments for large groups, ranging from wrinkle-erasing Botox to henna tattoos that pattern skin with temporary designs.
