True to its name, Massage Rituals is a place where every massage is a comprehensive experience. This is especially true of the spiritual bodywork treatments, like the multi-step Abyhanga signature ritual. But even treatments like the deep-tissue massage, designed to root out knots and flush lactic acid, are anchored by a focus on relaxation and balance. Whether treating clients to Ayurvedic oils, a soothing body wrap that lets clients emerge with massive butterfly wings, or a detoxifying lymphatic drainage session, therapists' connections to ancient bodywork traditions inform every stroke and stone.
The therapists and aestheticians at Scape Spa usher their clients to a state of relaxation and treat a range of ailments with a full menu of massages and facial treatments. The team is skilled in a wide array of bodywork modalities, from classic Swedish massage to reflexology of the hands and feet. Lymphatic massage pushes toxins out of the body, and prenatal massage helps mothers-to-be find relief from their unique aches and constant phone calls from their mothers-in-law. Alternatively, 60-minute facials, peels, and microdermabrasion sessions clear pores and freshen complexions.
The main goal at Miami Holistic Massage Therapy is pain management. To that end, the licensed therapists administer deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massages that help reduce bodily aches. But they also offer relaxing massages as well as a number of aesthetic treatments. These range from facials and body wraps to Lipo Contour Ultrasound Cavitation treatments, which help clients whittle their figures so they can finally fit into an old dress or the arms of a wedding-cake groom.
Dr. I. Anthony Cardella, the MD who founded and operates Essence Day Spa is an OB/GYN and former University of Miami professor. He has more than 20 years of clinical experience, which he uses to keep his spa's treatments on the leading edge of therapeutic innovation. Whether they're delivering European facials or performing highly technical laser hair removal and microdermabrasion, the spa's Licensed Electrologists or licensed professionals treat each client to a renewing, relaxing experience. This dedication to professionalism is also reflected in the spa's products; clients can pick up beauty aides and tonics from leading brands including ClarityRX and Pevonia.
At JN's Studio Skin Care, experienced staff members administer a custom blend of beautifying and age-defying treatments within candlelit rooms. Customers can prepare for a night out or for fingerless-glove season with an ultimate spa mani-pedi, which exfoliates and moisturizes appendages with paraffin and aromatherapy before bestowing color or french tips upon digits. Skin experts customize the signature anti-aging facial for each skin type, employing a chemical peel and antioxidants to minimize the appearance of fine lines and scurvy, and the detox footbath saps impurities from the body to help revive sluggish lymphatic and immune systems. Adept technicians whisk away unwanted hair during the full-leg wax, facilitating more aerodynamic swim races or can-can lines. Customers can converse in both Spanish and English with the fully bilingual staff.
In malls across South Florida, Massage Haven and My Happy Feet dole out doses of pain-relieving kneading for busy shoppers. Their signature treatment is the chair massage, which has the benefit of targeting common problem areas caused by desk jobs. But they also offer more specialized services such as foot massage, sports massage, and ice massage for a soothing panacea after injury. Thanks to the mobile nature of their massage chairs, the therapists can take their muscle-healing act on tour, and may be booked on-location at offices, homes, and party venues across the Tri-County Area.
