When Leslee Wilburn realized Las Vegas lacked a family-friendly massage practice, she decided to open one herself and found the perfect name, fittingly, in her young daughter, Kaela. Kaela’s middle name, Ilan, means family tree and symbolizes the philosophy Wilburn founded her massage studio on, namely the aim to teach people of all ages the benefits of massage. Whether receiving a massage or learning how to give one, families can spend quality relaxation time together within Wilburn’s space.
A licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, Wilburn performs massages for kids and adults in a candlelit treatment room. While she eases parents' quotidian stress, children wait their turn in a cozy, home-like lounge area complete with a television and comfortable sofas. During kids' massages, Wilburn helps young muscles and joints develop balance and coordination, and she relieves the stress accumulated from cooking dinner day in and day out with plastic toy food. She also teaches massage classes for couples or new moms and hosts Massage n' Mingle parties where guests set up their own food and drink in the refreshment area to celebrate birthdays or ladies nights out.
The staff at Infiniti Creations Salon Spa pamper clients with soothing facials and relaxing pedicures within wood-accented confines. Aesthetic experts purify pores, clean faces, and apply hydrating masks as clients with normal-to-dry skin relish a moment of refreshment. Along with cosmetic services, licensed male and female massage professionals apply hypoallergenic oils and lotions on muscles. This facilitates Swedish-massage techniques such as long, kneading strokes and rhythmic taps that spell out "relax" in Morse code, softening tissues, detoxifying the body, and reducing stress.
Infiniti Creations Salon Spa is open Tuesday?Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Sunday and Monday.
Licensed therapist Jesse Jones, the massage artist behind Knead To De-stress, puts his classical training to use to banish a variety of physical and mental ailments. Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massages can address anything from stress to poor circulation to athletic injuries to finally figuring out how bread dough feels before it's baked. Jesse helpfully offers an idea of what to expect during a massage for those who have never gotten one before.
Rivi Salon & Boutique's skilled aestheticians evict strand squatters from their dermal domiciles using Dermalogica techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure quality hair removal. During the 20- to 45-minute waxing treatments, patrons recline inside a private room as professionals de-hair underarms or tighten lower body perimeters by eradicating stray bristles with a bikini wax. Alternately, a Brazilian wax comprehensively clears the entire area, extricating hair from the bikini zone’s nethermost nooks to leave skin as smooth as a zambonied basketball court.
D Luke Allen is a state-licensed therapeutic massage therapist (NVMT.2524) with 14 years of experience in the field. At Therapeutic Massage Now!, he has carved out a calming space where sore muscles and frayed nerves surrender after being given long, gliding strokes, focused pressure, and a series of dares. D Luke and the team of massage therapists at Therapeutic Massage Now! offer Swedish and deep-tissue massages as well as the more exotic Chinese Tui Nai and Balinese modalities. Another option here is reflexology massage, a treatment that uses pressure on specific energy centers throughout the body to bring balance to the body and activate its self-healing mechanism.
Glenn McCleister was like many of his clients before he became a licensed massage therapist—in pain and seeking relief just about everywhere. After incurring a back injury, he embarked on a futile journey that took him numerous medical specialists’ offices but didn't produce results. Eventually, he ended up on a massage table and found that the therapeutic massages he was receiving were helping his back in a way the specialists weren't able to provide. After that experience, he changed courses in his life and decided to pay his knowledge forward with his own practice.
That's how he came to start Even Flow Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Today he provides deep-tissue, medical, and myofascial release massages with the greater goal of facilitating healing, when appropriate. Glenn also offers calming Swedish massages to help clients find inner peace and relief from strangers on the street who go around singing the words "inner peace" off-key.
