The therapists at Medical Massage Professionals don't simply point and push. Instead, they tailor their services to each client's needs—something they've been doing for the last decade. Founder Marian Sotelo-Paz has more than 20 years of industry experience under her fingers. At three locations around Miami, she's built a team of similarly seasoned professionals. All that experience is reflected in the team's versatility, which allows it to offer massage services for pain management, injury recovery, simple relaxation, and a variety of other ailments and issues.
Caruna Spa & Wellness Center features a slew of services for the beauty-conscious to preen and revivify. Microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, eyelash extensions, and facials smooth skin and instill a healthy glow; body treatments such as wraps, VelaShape laser body contouring, and vibrotherapy help firm and tone physiques. The staff also administers Botox and Juvederm injections, which smooth and plump facial creases for an appearance as young and dewy as a freshly hatched daisy. The spa's interior boasts an airy modern design by Pepe Calderin, with white spaces accented by splashes of color, and tranquil wall-size murals and soft candlelight in private treatment rooms.
One of the first centers in Miami to specialize exclusively in postliposuction massages, CS Post Lipo Massage has been ousting fat, toxins, and cellulite from its clients’ bodies for more than 15 years. State-licensed massage therapists learn techniques developed in both North and South America and put them to use in lymphatic-drainage and fat-reduction massages, which also call upon technological advances such as vacuum therapy and ultrasound waves. In addition to body-contouring treatments, the therapists aim to exile stress from minds and muscles during relaxation massages, which are enhanced by soft music, dimmed lights, and aromatherapy oils.
Spray tans, massages, teeth whitening, and other beauty services are all available at Planet Beach Contempo Spa, but unlike at other day spas, each treatment is administered via machine. Automated massage tables relieve bodily tension, Mystic Tan nozzles dispense tanning formula, and LED lights switch on at the push of a button to brighten complexions with their therapeutic rays. For a monthly membership fee, patrons gain unlimited access to all of these services, which are also available a la carte.
When husband-and-wife team Ernesto and Julie set out on their own in 2007, they were gambling on the fact that they could turn a fragile dream into a full business. Their initial lone employee has been replaced by seven in just one year, and the crew bustle through a salon that has the gleaming white expanses of a medical facility, but without the egocentric skeleton models. Patrons, who receive reminder text messages or emails before each appointment, arrive ready to work towards aesthetic goals with products from Obagi, Juvéderm, and Botox and a range of facial services. As massage services lure forth slow exhalations, the staff herald the arrival of new guests with cups of tea.
Right outside the bustling epicenter of Miami is a cozy cranny known as Enlightened Health. Step inside and you'll quickly realize that the serene surroundings are only the tip of the tranquil iceberg. With today's transcendent deal, $39 gets you a comprehensive 50-minute Enlightened Massage, a $95 value. Surrender your worries to the skilled hands of Dr. Maria Delgado and her staff, and approach nirvana.Follow @Groupon_Says on Twitter.
