Licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and permanent-makeup technicians work as a team to beautify clients from the forehead to the smallest toenail at Uptown Face and Body Care. Tense bodies melt under Swedish or deep-tissue massage techniques, and dull complexions disappear after infusions of vitamin C, minerals, and glycolic acid during facials and peels.
The licensed massage therapists at OM use the warmth of their hands, organic massage oils, and the skills of their training to soften up crumbled you-clay and work it back together into one soft, whole, happy lump. OM's 60-minute signature massage blends the techniques of Swedish, deep-tissue, and energy massages, and can be applied to the whole body or targeted toward a specific sore area. Heated towels and aromatherapy pillows for the back, neck, and eyes are provided to complement the intensely focused muscle-melting strokes. Also included is an aromatherapy add-on, which integrates your choice of a fragrant, natural plant oil into the massage for a pleasant, aromatic experience––unlike doing mathematics in a horse stable.
Candlelight illuminates a swirling jacuzzi at Spa Pura, a 7,000-square-foot relaxation mecca where clients shed stress as they don a robe and slippers before indulging in one of the spa’s many services. Aestheticians perform a full spectrum of facial treatments that leverage clay masks, SkinCeuticals products, and vitamin infusions to help the skin to regain its glow. Teams of massage therapists welcome clients onto beds and pore over muscles with relaxing strokes, and body scrubbers and waxing technicians exfoliate and smooth frames. Clients hesitant to return to the outside world can bide their time in the spa’s raindrop showers or eucalyptus steam room, which doubles as koala heaven.
All the laser-centric treatments at Fix Laser Skin Center are performed by either a board-certified physician or registered nurses. Backed by years of education and experience, staff members wield the GentleLase and GentleMax lasers to eradicate persistent acne or purge unwanted hair from bodies. Licensed massage therapists draw on a variety of modalities to soothe muscles after tough workouts at the gym or stressful days of wheeling around a meat cart. Skin-tightening treatments supplement newly hair- or acne-free bodies by reducing the appearance of cellulite with the GentleYAG laser.
Licensed acupuncturist Arthur Sardoni specializes in pain control and sports injuries at Acudome Acupuncture Center. The disposable, pre-sterilized needles used to direct the flow of chi in the body are thinner than human hair, and typically cause no pain. Acudome clients come in for treatment on a variety of symptoms, including orthopedic problems, digestive disorders, psychological disorders, and reproductive problems. Massage therapy, cupping, and herbal remedies are also available at the acupuncture center.
At Healing Touch Therapeutic Massage, fountains trickle and soft music fills the air. The staff adds flourishes such as these to ensure that treatments are an experience, rather than a task. Therapists confer with guests to select from a number of different massage modalities to address whatever issue a client may be facing. They can help you with a wide range of ailments, from stress and a knotty back to strain caused by trying to sand out the knots in a wooden sculpture of yourself. For an additional fee, Healing Touch’s staffers will take their therapeutic hands to you with their mobile massage services.
