Massage Therapy's licensed therapist, Michael Manning, convinces snarled muscles to let loose under the supervision of his dexterous digits, which are fluent in three main modalities. The slow strokes of Swedish massage soothe muscles into a state of relaxation normally experienced only by cooked pasta. Limbs that have been injured or overworked during athletic encounters unclench with sports massages, and therapeutic sessions return mobility to stiff appendages without surgically implanting extra elbows.
The licensed aestheticians at Vitality Wellness and Aesthetics extract the healing power of seaweed to whip up a facial formula tailored to each client. To start the 60-minute session, a deep cleansing expunges grease from pore recesses and erases lines from games of connect-the-freckles. Next, the aesthetician analyzes the client's skin before blending a seaweed base cream tailored to the pigmentation, elasticity, and moisture level of each unique complexion. As the mask labors away—deposing dead skin cells and restoring the face to healthy hydration levels—a hand and décolletage massage glides across tension fault lines. The mask then lifts from the face to reveal the glowing features beneath, sealed in with moisturizer and SPF that protects against the damaging effects of UV rays or cuddle sessions with sun lamps.

Once the refreshments have had time to take effect, willing bodies are led to the massage table, where therapists ease out remaining aches and pains with techniques such as hot-stone or trigger-point therapy, or to the styling chair, where split ends are swiftly shed to gift shoulders a newfound lightness of being. Facials address every type of skin—from sensitive and dry to mature and pie-covered⎯while mani-pedis keep appendages looking fresh with essential oils, custom-blended scrubs, and anti-aging ingredients.

The licensed massage therapists at Advanced Integrated Massage evict knots and kinks from their sinewy hiding places with several types of therapeutic bodywork. Upon arrival, clients step into a cave of relaxation lined with dark, soothing colors, comfy Danish furniture, and carpet that emits the calming sounds of ocean waves and whale songs when tread upon. Grouponers may choose a therapeutic massage, deep-tissue massage, or relaxation rubdown any time of year, and those who visit during the winter may melt stress away with a hot-stone treatment. The studio also offers Kinesio Taping, a rehabilitative technique that stabilizes joints and manipulates soft tissue with latex-free tape and subtle flattery. This treatment gently lifts the skin, decreasing pain and inflammation. With appointment times available throughout the week and in evenings and on Saturdays, guests can conveniently expel aches after work, school, or biweekly supervillain-support-group meetings.
