Muscle tension and mental stresses melt away after a soothing massage and bodywork session at Massage by Wendy. Through one of four treatments—relaxing massage, therapeutic massage, reflexology, and Reiki—the certified massage therapist relieves discomfort from any part of the body such as muscle knots in the shoulder.
Certified massage therapists focus on using the healing therapy of massage to eradicate clients’ stress levels. A variety of modalities—including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone—work to alleviate new and chronic pain, blast through weight issues, and stop insomnia.
At BeYoutiful Face, licensed aesthetician Tami Kendrick starts appointments with a conversation. During this time, she not only gets to know clients and their expectations, she also evaluates their skin. This step is important because it allows Tami to customize each of her facial services, which include her signature facial, pumpkin peel, and vitamin C facial. Tami is also a certified massage therapist and offers soothing Swedish or reflexology massages to complement her cleansing facial treatments.
At Downtown Chic, skillful staff unknot tension with therapeutic massages and rehydrate dry mugs with a signature facial. Spines may enter the spa's taupe-hued massage room like stern, unbending iron, but the hands of a certified massage therapist transform even the most ornery vertebrae into pliant clumps of sticky rice. Those desirous of refreshed face-skin can undergo a 45-minute signature facial, where dermal surfaces receive a thorough sudsing, a gentle exfoliation, and a moisturizing treatment that makes visages glow like dew-covered disco balls. A 45-minute stress-relief massage follows, in which a massage therapist seeks to drain tension from the back, neck, shoulders, and feet.
The wellness wizards at Sweet Serenity chase away muscular aches and pains with relaxing massages performed with a focus on guest comfort and tranquility. Hot-stone massages use thermally charged rocks to impart warmth deep into bodies, melting stress and thawing ingested frozen pizzas. Once muscles relax, the therapist's nimble fingers work out back-bound kinks and neck-held stiffness, increasing range of motion and leaving massagees delightfully energized. To keep treatments customizable, guests can choose between a 60- or 90-minute session based on busy schedules and level of muscly achiness. Each serene treatment takes place in one of the center's private rooms, which ensconce guests in comfort with gentle warmth, soft music, and ghosts that like to cuddle.

Step inside Gavora Studio's voguish cocoon of high ceilings, warm hues, and pendulant lighting to have your mop top trimmed, moisture-treated, and molded into a head accessory that will simultaneously stop traffic and accelerate the speed at which rogue dollar bills slip from your smooth strands and into your pocket.
