Zen Massage's licensed therapists run their nimble fingers across backs and shoulders, healing fatigued muscles with eight massage modalities inspired by Eastern and Western traditions. While gliding strokes promote overall relaxation, firm taps hone in on stubborn knots in upper backs and rough-hewn peg legs. Zen Swedish and deep-tissue massages penetrate muscles with varying degrees of pressure, and neuromuscular therapy stimulates specific trigger points to call a truce between bickering body systems. A reiki energy treatment or blend of pure, essential aromatherapy oils coddles the senses while soothing strokes bring peace to beleaguered muscles.
At Beautiful Image Anti Aging, LLC, owner Elaine Colter and staff noninvasively freshen faces and physiques with the microcurrent sessions that have earned her business features in Lake Norman Woman magazine and the Charlotte Observer. During the procedure, conducting wands relay currents into bodies at key acupuncture points, speeding up the production of collagen and elastin and reeducating muscles to reduce wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and pick up cars. Potential benefits can include a youthful, pink glow, tighter skin, and a reduction in visible blemishes and under-eye circles.
The experienced muscle menders at Massage Loft draw on Swedish and deep-tissue massage techniques to relax aching bodies. During the Swedish massage, cream, oil, or gel aids the long, smooth strokes, generating warmth to stimulate circulation and to de-kink knots tied by badge-hungry boy scouts, leaving patrons feeling refreshed and less stressed. Nimble fingers focus on trigger points during the deep-tissue knead, which works to release toxins from their confines in tense muscles and to produce serotonin for giddy relief from stress and chronic pain. Both techniques soothe overworked muscles and work toward uniting the body and mind until the two can hum a perfectly in-tune harmonized guitar riff.
