At Elements Massage, it's OK to put your own needs first. In fact, it's encouraged: each of the center's holistic healers makes it their mission to provide care personalized to your specific needs. In order to find out what those needs are, the massage therapists listen closely to clients' descriptions of any problem areas or health conditions. Then, they set to work alleviating aches and pains with custom massage strokes.
The treatments at Elements Massage span a wide range of modalities to meet every massage need. If you're experiencing everyday stress, the therapists might suggest a light relaxation massage. Alternatively, if you're plagued by chronic pain, muscle knots, or tenderness from new wings sprouting on your shoulders, you might benefit from a deep-tissue or trigger-point massage.
Hemi Day Spa specializes in technologically enhanced treatments that address problem areas and signs of aging on both the face and body with little pain, side effects, or downtime. The trained staff mans a fleet of high-tech devices, such as the Derma Pod, which delivers exfoliating microdermabrasions; the Presojet, a set of inflatable bands that presses and decompresses around the body to purge toxins; and the Thermojet, which sends infrared light rays deep into bodies to speed up the body's metabolism of unwanted curves. The spa's services enhance natural beauty without a time-consuming recovery period or painful, invasive methods, such as liposuction surgery or peacock-feather transplants.
Named Best Plastic Surgeon with an Artistic Streak in 2010 by the Miami New Times, Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri keeps up appearances with face-lifting Botox treatments and more than 25 years of doctoral expertise. Each nonsurgical facial enhancement uses a purified natural protein to smooth the lines in skin sands like a gentle wave. The in-office treatment injects small quantities of the protein into specific problem areas, blocking nerve impulses and reducing the muscle activity that forms wrinkles. Botox treatments are quick and require little to no downtime, ensuring that sessions are easily squeezable into lunch hours or after politely excusing yourself from a dinner date. Like invisible-ink tattoos, full results can take up to three weeks to appear, and results last up to six months. Dr. Perez-Gurri is expert at addressing any patient concerns, and he and his staff can do so in both English and Spanish.
