When working to get clients into a relaxed, meditative state of being, a good spa can?t just rely on one technique. That?s why the staffers at Therapeutix Mind & Body have gained national certifications and master-level achievements in a range of Eastern and Western relaxation techniques. They specialize in massages, incorporating reflexology, cold-stone migraine relief, and aromatherapy to tackle tension both externally and internally. They can add a range of relaxing treatments to their massages, including essential oils, hand and foot scrubs, and 3-D glasses. In addition to their massages, they offer body-contouring packages that use ultrasonic waves and a radio-frequency laser or detoxifying wraps to hone trouble areas.
Soundproof and lightproof, the smooth, curvy pods at InSPArations Float Spa let clients enjoy a few moments totally removed from the outside world. Gallons of warm water intermixed with Epsom salt fill the tanks, providing the highly buoyant, skin-temperature "bed" that simulates the sensation of floating. Sensory deprivation sessions have been shown to yield a range of benefits, such as increased concentration, better sleep, and reduced stress.
The talented massage therapists at Massage & Serenity provide a wide variety of treatments, from relaxing Swedish massages to toxin-releasing deep-tissue treatments. Frequent clients can even become a member, which grants them discounts on treatments, products, and gift cards for family and friends.
A graduate of Utah College of Massage Therapy, Shayna Dunn has spent the past four years quelling aches and tension with a host of massage modalities. During sessions held within Biofit Bootcamp, she might break up muscular knots with deep-tissue kneads or soothe regularly worked muscles to enhance athletic performance. But not all work is confined to an in-office session. Shayna demonstrates a variety of stretches that can be performed daily to reduce muscle soreness.
For Cindy Howell, every massage calls for a different approach. That's why the licensed massage therapist draws upon five modalities at Mama Mia Family Massage, paying close attention to what every body needs. Of course, she also happily sticks to one style when necessary, whether kneading muscles with gentle Swedish strokes or incorporating elements of reflexology and meditation into Thai yoga massages. Her sessions result in myriad benefits, including improved circulation, a stronger immune system, and relief from general aches and anxieties.
Inside a private treatment room, licensed massage therapist Alexandria consults with clients before administering her signature Swedish, deep-tissue, or Hawaiian lomilomi massages. They talk about the clients' specific issues, from chronic pain to tense muscles. Based on that information, Alexandria customizes a massage that integrates elements from any of these modalities?even specialized techniques, such as craniosacral balancing and prenatal massage.
