Therapists at teMassage know how to pamper and soothe, but their skills run deeper than superficial comfort. At the head of the service list, three medical massage options target neck injuries, symptoms of TMJ, or conditions such as sciatica and fibromyalgia. They also keep their skills sharp by attending ongoing education seminars and enlisting a reiki energy practitioner, an acupuncturist, and an esthetician to supplement their massage services.
Pleasing scents, comfortable spa tables, and thorough massage strokes are some of the things clients at Massage Therapeutic Kneads can expect with every massage service. Licensed massage therapists indulge bodies from head to toe with individually tailored massages that address stressed minds and back pains gained from hunching over a computer or abacus day in and out. Before a kneading, clients can choose a calming scent at the aromatherapy bar.
At Tao Chi Massage & Skin Care, licensed massage therapist and facial specialist Richard Hays soothes the body and mind with a blend of Asian and European techniques. His distinct approach to deep-tissue massages combines Western strokes with the Asian redirection of chi energy. He also blends the ancient with the modern during other services, such as those powered by the Clarisonic system—a device designed to improve overall skin tone with a thorough cleaning and removal of any silver dollars lodged inside clients’ pores.
Spa Essence’s technicians handle a lot of interesting materials throughout the day—moor mud, fruit enzymes, and algae, to name a few—but none are more interesting than the main ingredient of their cabernet peel: wine. The peel is similar to a chemical peel, but instead of harsh acids, it uses a chemical-free, wine-based solution to help rehydrate complexions and improve appearance of fine lines. The solution is called Cabernet Solution, and it’s made by A Natural Difference, a favorite among Spa Essence’s staff. For more therapeutic services, they also offer 11 different varieties of massage.
Back to Eden Wellness Center's team of health specialists believe in the importance of truly listening to clients' health concerns and the effectiveness of turning those concerns into rhymes to make them easier to remember. The staff offers consultations that can last from 15 minutes to two hours, during which they educate clients about homeopathy, natural therapy, and modern diagnostics. To treat clients, the center hosts a full menu of holistic treatments, including ionic footbaths, biopuncture, and massage therapy, as well as aesthetic treatments ranging from facials to body wraps.
Within A Day Of Delight’s waterfront location—an estate built in 1914 by a doting father as his daughter's wedding gift—a team of holistic therapists inspires internal and external wellness. Staffers bring together years of experience with certifications in Oriental, Ayurvedic, and European techniques to revitalize visages with facials that include herbal steam and an upper-body massage and feature preservative-free products comprised of pure, flower essences and essential oils. Massage therapists ease muscle tension in themed treatment rooms or in a secluded waterfront area beneath the palm trees, and a certified acupuncturist aims to alleviate bodily ailments.
Guests can enjoy complimentary organic tea or champagne and baked treats before their custom treatments. The space also boasts an outdoor gazebo, sauna, and a whirlpool, ideal for liquefying stress or providing survival training to a rubber ducky.
The therapists at Healing Palms Massage & Spa reach for natural and organic products whenever possible. Not only are the lotions and balms used during treatments good for their clients and Mother Earth, but so are the cleaning supplies used around the studio and the recycled paper used in the office. The chemical-free scents of aromatherapy oils kneaded into backs during massages and fragrant ingredients blended into body wraps create a relaxing environment more effectively than lullabies sung by a choir of Enyas.
