A member of the American Chiropractic Association, Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Blackburn leads a team of licensed massage therapists and bodywork specialists within a full-service chiropractic clinic. Along with spinally minded stretching exercises, the clinic offers a variety of services, from relaxing massage therapy to corrective rehabilitation, to soothe injuries and reawaken sleeping pinky toes.
Andrea Mills recognized the healing power of massage as she watched acupuncture help her husband recover from a serious illness. Inspired by the power of alternative medicine, she studied massage to help others overcome their ailments. Today, she and her team of licensed massage therapists tend to clients with modalities such as hot stone, prenatal, and reflexology to impart benefits that help relieve back pain and assuage anxiety. They also offer complementary services such as supportive kinesio taping and turn massages into spa experiences with organic sugar scrubs and hot towels.
Adorned in warm colors and minimal decor, each studio removes distractions—such as strobe lights and wildlife—so clients can surrender to the effects of their massage. Beyond kneading guests' musculature, Andrea and her team beautify their exteriors with skin and nail services.
During Crystal Euphoria Body Spa's relaxing bodywork treatments, the touch of the massage therapist's skilled hands feels like the ultimate reward for weathering life’s daily stresses. These treatments come in several forms. Traditional Swedish and deep-tissue massages work to ease tension and frayed nerves, and prenatal massages alleviate muscle soreness caused by carrying extra baby weight and pile-driving all those strangers who try to touch your stomach. An aesthetician can also help turn back the clock with nourishing facials, which include everything from exfoliation to aromatherapy.
Divine MediSpa helps faces take center stage with its slate of visage-renewing services. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, an experienced aesthetician aims to erase fine lines using a chemical peel and gently combats acne with salicylic acid applied during facials. Other facials saturate face-skin with hydration and help it look millions of second younger. The beauty experts don’t neglect the rest of patrons’ bodies; they offer laser hair-removal treatments to remove stubborn fuzz and massages to release tense and windsor-knotted muscles.
Working with a holistic philosophy fitting of the name, Purity Wellness Spa serves as an oasis away from the toxins and stresses of everyday life. The staff kneads customers' cramped muscles in 30- to 90-minute massage sessions, and sugar-glow exfoliation and facials beautify skin. If that's not enough, staff members can wax bothersome body areas, polish the nails of fingers and toes, and style hair with organic products.
While relaxing in a cozy chair, clients can request face-flattering haircuts, waxing sessions to nix unflattering fuzz, or decorate toe and finger shields with high-end gel and shellac nail polishes. Blondies also offers soothing Swedish and relaxation massages to improve circulation, and deep-tissue bodywork to warm muscles after a game of freeze tag is taken too literally.
