Certified massage therapist Randy A. Orozco believes that a good massage therapist uses a combination of techniques and pressures, depending on each client's specific needs. That's why he personalizes each therapeutic massage he gives. Clients can remain fully clothed or opt for a chair massage along with his standard bodywork—whatever makes the person most comfortable. Randy's signature Swedish massage style includes a variety of hand techniques, stretches, and exercises. He aims to leave clients feeling both invigorated and relaxed.
European-trained aestheticians at Le Beau Organic Day Spa are experts not only in taking care of the skin, but also in using organic formulas to do it. With a full line of organic products, they perform massages and facials that include extras to enhance the bliss for no extra charge, much like imagining that the massage table is a pile of money. Massages include complimentary access jetted showers, and facials come with moisturizing hand treatments and aromatherapy essential oils.
Massage therapist John Rowinski abides by the Goldilocks method: If one massage is too gentle and another too firm, then the one in between should be just right. This approach led him to create the "deep Swedish" modality, a middle ground between the flowing kneads of a standard Swedish massage and the highly focused pressure of deep-tissue work. His clients are far from limited to these three options, however. Each of John's massages is a custom and distinct experience, and he channels more than 20 years of practice—conducted at spas, medical centers, and athletic venues—to inform his services.
His pampering menu also highlights hot-stone massages, which coax tension from muscles by warming them with ocean basalt stones. His prenatal massages allow expectant mothers to recline on their sides, propped against a specialized body pillow that optimizes comfort. Though it is not classified as a massage, his lymphatic-drainage therapy does involve manual manipulation and aims to enhance the natural flow of lymph fluid throughout the body for increased well-being and relaxing "whoosh" sounds. John administers these services at his own venue or on location, traveling to patrons' homes or offices for an additional fee.
Taking its French translation of "private spa" seriously, Spa Prive performs many of its treatments in private rooms cut off from the waiting area's more social arrangement of silk-like chairs and floral paintings. Muted lighting accompanies clients throughout the spa as they indulge in aesthetic and relaxation services that employ the power of Repêchage, PCA Skin, and Bioelements products. Licensed aestheticians treat acne with specialized facials, administer PCA peels on faces and backs, and landscape bodily forests with waxing services. Fingers and toes lose their troublesome hangnails and back-talking cuticles at the skilled hands of nail technicians, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage release tensions from the body and into the wild.
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.
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.
