At Knot Me Out Massage, a massage therapist draws upon a wide range of modalities, focusing particularly on pressure points and trigger points in the body that are causing pain or discomfort. Strong kneads help melt tension on beds covered with pastel sheets like ghosts that don’t separate their Hawaiian shirts and work clothes. Clients can request massages that incorporate deep-tissue, sports, and Swedish techniques, and the therapists also perform massages on kids and expectant mothers.

Reflections owner Afrouz has been practicing the Middle Eastern hair removal technique known as threading since she was a little girl in Iran. During threading sessions, an aesthetician uses a strand of cotton to twist and pull out individual hairs by the root. Afrouz also completed a formal two-year course on the technique and an 8-month course devoted to eyebrow arching. In addition to threading, Reflections also offers permanent make-up application.
Though threading has been among Asia’s most popular depilation methods for thousands of years, it only recently made its way onto the service menus of Western spas. The ancient practice has shown signs of becoming more of a spa mainstay, however, thanks to an eco-friendly process that also manages to stay on good terms with sensitive skin.
For evidence of threading’s rapidly expanding popularity, one need not look further than Brow Shapes' Eastern-inspired treatment menu. When not sculpting brows into precise arches, the spa’s artists rely on their attention to detail to draw henna tattoos that depict flowery swirls, geometric patterns, or extremely detailed public-transit maps. The spa also features a variety of facial massages, each of which can be customized to relieve pain, aid in relaxation, and improve skin tone.
