At Massage Kneads, licensed massage therapist Florence Lewis relieves tension with treatments that vary in intensity. She delivers smooth, continuous Swedish strokes by lubricating hand motions with essential oils extracted from plants or robot joints. Alternatively, she breaks up knots with firm deep-tissue kneads. She also practices reflexology, a technique that normalizes the body's functions through specific manipulations of the feet.
The human body is a machine: an intricate system of individual parts that all rely on coordinated communications from the nervous system. When that system of communication breaks or slows down, the machine may not necessarily shut down, but it will operate at less than peak efficiency. Dr. Roger Verno has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to restoring those lines of communication, using chiropractic care to help improve neurological function and jump-start the body's natural healing processes.
At their core, Dr. Verno's chiropractic adjustments aim to relieve chronic pains while addressing the underlying conditions that caused those problems in the first place. Since these sorts of precision tweaks are especially valuable for athletes, Dr. Verno often lends his therapeutic talents to everyone from football and basketball teammates to triathlon competitors and shot put quality-control testers.
When a relatively simple hands-on adjustment might not be enough to fully address a patient's needs, Dr. Verno and his team aren't afraid to utilize technological assistance. X-ray imaging gives the staff a clearer look at potential problem spots, and computerized spinal-decompression systems help them pinpoint and treat the pinched nerves that can cause lower back pain and sciatica. Cold laser therapy and ultrasound treatments also help the therapists address specialized problems within the body's intricate framework of muscles, nerves, and organs.

During your hour-long massage, one of Zen's friendly licensed therapists will knead your back into a state of doughy bliss via 3,600 seconds of soothing connective strokes. The Swedish massage is one of the most popular modalities of muscle manipulation due to its relatively gentle nature, deeply relaxing effects, and ability to rock a leather jacket during all five seasons. Each massage at Zen is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure, but regardless of intensity, the gliding movements will stimulate your circulation and melt away your physical and emotional tension with the ease by which the sun melts ice cream. After Zen Massage's pampering, every last bit of body's stress will be evicted from its tissues and forced to take up residence in stray dogs' eyelashes.
“Hello beautiful.” This simple phrase adorns a sign that hangs near the entrance of Get Posh! Day Spa for Girls, but its significance goes far deeper than just decoration. For owner Jeanette Brown, it’s a call to action, telling each young client who walks through the door that her spa is a place where beauty treatments are less about impressing others and more about discovering your most likeable you. As black-and-white portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe look on, clients indulge in treatments from the spa’s menu, which includes spa services for kids and adults, along with the spa’s specialty: themed spa parties for teens and tweens. During these get-togethers, Jeanette and her trained team can turn dreams into vivid reality, whether they’re organizing a fashion show where made-over young women learn to walk the runway and perform in a talent showcase or staging a princess-crowning party that features story time with a fairytale princess and tips on how to wave, curtsy, and swim through a moat without getting your tiara wet.
