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 signature massage blends the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and energy massages, and can be full body or focused on your body's particular bothers. Heated towels and aromatherapy pillows for your back, neck, and eyes complement the intensely focused muscle-melting strokes. Then, during reflexology, one of OM's licensed therapists will apply precise pressure at the zones that spread like a map across the foot (each zone corresponds to an organ in the body). Pressing and kneading a specific zone can enliven its linked organ and promote renewed integration of the body's systems. OM tailors each treatment to the client's needs, so they're flexible enough for common and esoteric health hankerings.

Effleurage: The Foundation of Relaxation

Swedish massage relies largely on a technique known as effleurage. Learn how it zaps stress with Groupon's peek at this basic stroke.

Effleurage is the glue that holds a Swedish massage together. Its smooth, gliding strokes may not deliver much pressure?the word itself is taken from a French verb that means "to touch lightly"?but the technique simultaneously soothes the nerves, boosts circulation, and allows the massage therapist to identify problem zones that need extra attention. Because effleurage doubles as an assessment tool, many therapists begin each massage with it, usually by gliding their open palms lightly across the body to feel for tense spots and potholes while acclimating the client to their touch. This form of effleurage is known as "superficial," and it serves a soothing prelude, epilogue, and transitional movement between deeper, more focused kneading.

A slightly more forceful style of effleurage is known as "deep effleurage." This form still uses gliding strokes, only with more pressure, as the therapist aims to stretch out the muscle tissue and the web of connective tissue that covers it. Therapists will generally direct the first part of their deep-effleurage stroke towards the heart, finishing with a lighter return stroke away from it. Not only does this warm up tissues for deeper muscle work, but it can also speed up the movement of blood and lymph fluid. This boost in circulation can help drain fluid from injured areas, reducing painful pressure while also releasing endorphins that further relax the entire body.

Chaba Herbal Spa & Thai Yoga Massage?s owner traveled the world to bolster her therapeutic knowledge. She began studying the art of Thai massage in Bangkok, Thailand, at the Watpro Traditional Medical School. After finishing her program, she packed her bags and journeyed to Los Angeles, where she accumulated a pet palm tree and 500 hours of massage-therapy schooling with a focus on traditional Thai massage. She uses this combination of cultural knowledge and varied techniques to treat clients with massages that fuse multiple disciplines into one soothing session. She also surrounds her clients with Thailand-influenced decor, including green plants, live flowers, and bubbling fountains that ease stress. In addition to massages, the spa also offers skin and body treatments, waxing services, and reflexology sessions.
