Within a renovated house built in the 1920s, Professional Body Wrap Studio and Spa lulls clients into a state of deep relaxation. Massages melt tense muscles and body wraps work to detoxify bodies in private treatment rooms. Infrared saunas house sweating humans and imprisoned yetis. Throughout the modernized house, flat-screen televisions hypnotize clients as they nestle beneath thermal blankets or recline in heated massage chairs.
Tiffany Holmes, a certified Prenatal massage and bodywork therapist, tailors her techniques to address each client’s symptoms and boost his or her mental and physical harmony. Tiffany also takes the time to talk with each client before each treatment to assess their goals to ensure the best possible results. Her repertoire of techniques includes Swedish, hot-stone, deep-tissue, sports, and prenatal massage. She also uses a targeted combination of Biofreeze and warm towels to loosen tense sinews or cryogenically preserve them. Helm isn’t yoked to her studio, either: she brings her services to clients on location, kneading knots in offices and at parties.

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.
Although the laws of conventional hairstyling decree that certain cuts go with certain facial shapes, that doesn't stop the stylists at Serendipity Hair Salon and Boutique from listening to clients' ideas and crafting unique styles. During consultations that precede every haircut, Coppola keratin treatment, and color service, the team works one-on-one with clients to orchestrate snazzy hairdos befitting their personal aesthetics and lifestyle. Dedicated to preserving hair's moisture, strength, and ability to glide down Slip 'n Slides, the team drizzles Moroccanoil, ENJOY, and ColorProof products onto strands throughout services.
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.
Treating tense muscles is like bargain hunting—it can conserve a lot of money in the long run but shouldn’t be done with the aid of a shady character in a dark alley. Amid soothing décor featuring earthy tones and violet hues, clients of Massage Envy begin their 90-minute session with an initial consultation that determines which customized massage will provide the best results. For example, a sports massage provides treatment specific to the athlete’s sport, reflexology targets points on the extremities to balance the nervous system, and deep-tissue massage unties knots while relieving chronic muscle tension. Trigger-point therapy alleviates tight areas within muscle tissue through cycles of isolated pressure and release, while a Swedish massage relaxes the whole body with long, gliding strokes. The professional massage therapists at Massage Envy will apply the necessary muscle treatment with pinpoint precision and buttery smoothness during convenient hours, including evenings and weekends.
