The beauty pros at Polished Day Spa make multitasking look easy with their signature fassage. A facial and massage in one, the fassage begins with a Swedish back and leg rub and finishes with a skin-cleansing facial that includes a face, neck, shoulders, hand, and foot massage. They also go ? la carte, divvying up the services into 30-, 60-, or 90-minute massages or visage-rejuvenating ministrations, such as microdermabrasions, peels, or facials that use Keyano Aromatics products. Keeping appendages appeased, manicurists groom hands and feet during mani-pedis and estheticians remove unwanted hair using french green azulene wax.

Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs.

Three months after he graduated from Salter College, licensed therapist Jeff Scott opened Escape Massage Centers in a small office. Knowing better than to despise humble beginnings, Jeff saw his tiny studio as the first step in an ongoing journey. Six months later, he opened a second location, and today he has a total of three outposts?one for each lightning bug that hovers in place to form Orion's belt every night. When Jeff isn't personally mending muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques, he supervises a team of therapists that expands on his primary modalities with hot-stone, pregnancy, and couples massage. In addition to building his own practice, Jeff has taught at his alma mater and earned certification in the myoskeletal alignment techniques developed by Erik Dalton. Dalton considers the myofascial and skeletal systems as inseparable as a tongue and a frozen flagpole.
While studying alternative medicine, Wilson Cruz became fascinated with the body's ability to regenerate, and explored how massage therapy aids this process. Soon after earning his massage therapy license, he opened Get Centered Muscular Therapy Studio where he manipulates clients' physical structures into healing themselves through personalized massage sessions. He draws from the multiple techniques in which he's been trained to customize each session to increase circulation and improve range of motion. Neuromuscular therapy increases flexibility and improves stamina while speeding up post-workout recovery, and the strokes of deep-tissue massage work to loosen scar tissue and lengthen muscles so clients no longer have to sleep hanging upside-down.
